    If Wt (wiener) is normally distributed with mean 0 and variance t, why is Wt+h|(Wt=x) normally distributed with mean x and variance h? Is this as a result of the conditional expectation martingale property?

    Martingales comes way after. What you are quoting implies from the definition of the Wiener process. (stationary increments etc..)

    Just go over the problems in Chin a few times for stochastic calculus.

    This thing is a beast.  Glad I didn’t try to be a quant.

    The amount of content is astronomical. This will be my first sitting, and I am quite confident that I won’t pass. There seems to be many fringe topics thrown in that are just driving me up a wall, and they tested quite a few of them on the Spring 2021 sitting. I failed that exam when testing at home.

    How did folks do at todays sitting (Fall 2021)? That last question was the worst. Maybe I was just burned out

    we’re you able to make it through the full exam? I got pretty behind and was burned out by the laser question which was the toughest one in my opinion. Mostly because I got lost in all the notation
