FRM Versus CFA and CAIA

How does the FRM exam compare with CFA and CAIA as far difficulty (and any other pertinent aspects) is concerned,  Thanks

Several General Questions on Preparing for FRM L1

Hi,

(1) I’m just started on FRM L1 for the November exam this year after having pretty much finished on my CAIA preparation. I have a certain level of basic actuarial background and a Bachelor in Mathematics, do you think it is feasible to pass the exam in this time constraint?

Did you pass?

I am so damn happy that I passed part I. Could cuddle everyone. But did not get an e-mail. How about you guys?

Starting my prep

Hi all. I’m just starting out on my FRM part 1 prep. I have read a lot online about how the structure of the curriculum is not very well designed. Do any of you have any suggestions(or how you did it) on what order to follow for my prep?

Resume

Hi,

Is it appropriate to mention ‘FRM LEVEL 1 CANDIDATE’ in my resume and LinkedIn profile? Will it grab the recruiters attention?

Exam Prep Companies

I am new to forum and just got the FRM Part 1 materials.  i was looking over the study material providers and can’t find many choices.  (So little compared to CFA ones.)  I would like study notes and as many practice questions as I can get, yet doesn’t seem worth it to spend more than the books cost.   

What have you all tried and found the most beneficial?  

Since i plan to do FRM Exam 1 and 2 then start on CFA, please let me know what works best for each.

Thanks!

Level 1 FRM November registrationd dates

Does anyone know when the registration dates for level 1 FRM November are available? I don’t see any link for registering for the november exam yet.

FRM curriculum changes from year to year

Hello!

I’m planning on enrolling for November 2019 LVL1 FRM exam. However, I’m not sure whether I’ll have enough time to study to pass. 

So, if I study and fail, will large part of studying go to waste due to curriculum changes from year to year? Or does the curriculum remain same?

The reason why I’m asking is that my buddy sat for LVL3 CFA exam last year and failed. Now he is giving it another try this year but he is complaining that the curriculum has changed significantly from 2018 and large part of his work has gone to waste.
