i am not sure, but most probably:
12.2 the first rC need h?
14.1 k must be c in the 2 values (3rd and fourth)?
14.2, last formula need - ?

Default Formula Practice and Solutions

Hey all,

I was going to attach a zip file of my formula practice sheet and solutions, but AO has a very small size allowance for zip files. Anyways, anyone interested can find it here:

https://sites.google.com/site/symrpage/interests

The solutions might have errors, so be aware of that (not too many, if any). And I gave the exam in Nov 2012 and passed!-) I personally found it useful to do this about a month or more before the exam. Put all the formulas in my head even if I didn't understand them.

I'd also suggest keeping a short list of tricky problems you can do every now and then (this helped me the most). I'd post mine if I hadn't blatantly copied them from TIA and CA.

Anyways, best of luck to all.

Hi guys/girls,

I just want to know the difficulty levels of ASM 11 PEs for MFE in comparison to real exam.
Based on 72% cut off mark. This was what I fared

1.) PE 1: 22/30
2.) PE 2 22/30
3.) PE 3 failed about 19/30
4.) PE 4: failed
5.) PE 5: 20/30
6.) PE 6 22/30

In every PE, I always encounter new question types. I think I am not going to pass like this. Any tips?

Default ASM Chapter 23

Peeps - your input, please.

What is the likelihood of getting a question on Chapter 23 of the ASM (stochastic integration)?
I am running short on time so I am thinking of skipping that chapter completely. I took a peek and it looks SCARY!!

I am about to start chapter 19 but frankly the last couple chapters have completely exhausted any brain power I thought I still had... I seriously hope that was the worst of it.

ps. Why isn't there a crying or a despairing "smiley" pulling its hair out when you need one??

You might want to put that in the March 2014 study thread. I'm on a similar boat as you and looking for ways to maximize my time. I did hear multiple people say they skipped 23 and it didn't affect them during the real thing, but I am a secondary source and not very trustworthy. Best of luck to you!

Not at all high priority, imo, however: I had no questions on it, but my friends claim they had quite a few on that section.
