Since no specific question can be discussed , I spotted at least 1Qs. in the PM, annual PMT and quarterly PMT were same. Do not know if I were correct

back against the wall. no retreat no surrender.

you guys think so?

i always think that CFAI didnt make any mistake in making the questions and just think that it was just me that didnt know the topic

It was a long shot, glad i made it.

I am not sure if it got me anywhere. but I submitted one last year because a question asked you to do something that didn’t match the LOS. IIRC the LOS was to describe, but the question required a calculation. 

There was one question in the PM where I kept getting an answer that was a multiple of one of the available answers. Tried calculating it a number of different ways but kept getting the same answer so decided to put this down on the answer sheet. Assumed I had read something incorrectly but did wonder if CFAI had made a mistake…

FWIW, I am going to submit one about an ethics question. I think it was in the second item set. 

You guys go ahead. I’ll gladly be the free rider of activist candidate actions.

I hate that I enjoy all these L3 puns

i agree 100%. There was a big time LOS discrepancy for L2 last year. 

If you're the first out the door, that's not called panicking

I don’t think that the LOS are “written in stone”. Basically, the entire material is fair game…LOSs are just there to guide you. So, changing “explain” to “calculate” is not a mistake. 

Disclamer: I am not 100% sure. 

It ain't what you don't know that gets you in trouble. It's what you know for sure that just ain't so.
