FRM without Math Knowledge

Hello,

I am going to start preparing for FRM L1 but I have barely any knowledge in Math. I read online that I will need to learn calculus, so I have already purchased the following book

Teach yourself Calculus by Hugh Neil.

If there is a recommended list of books which lay the foundation for FRM please share that list. I would like to go through the essential stuff before actually moving onto FRM Prep Material.

Regards

Noor

Another book to consider is Calculus for Dummies.

Simplify the complicated side; don't complify the simplicated side.

Well I passed both levels sitting on the same day and I can assure you that please review the schweiser materials more than enough times ( I revised my books at least 4 times ). There is no need to review calculus / algebra / any other book . Just stick to the material and do enough Mocks. You are good. I am a person of average IQ so you are good as well. Hope that helps.

Is this a semantic pragmatic disorder or what else?

You are engaging the rumours that other reference books are needed. i was just clarifying that we do not need anything but notes and revise them over n over, there is no need of jargons here
