doing some qbank now to review and was surprised to see a bunch of q’s that really are name the BRIC country that has BLAH. anyone want to play along? Which BRIC has the lowest/weakest: 1. Macroeconomic stability 2. Efficiency of Institutions 3. Open trade 4. Educational system Bonus- which 2 BRICS have the most rapid aging of their population? If this random memorization garbage is on the test, I’ll laugh. But since it hit me over the head on like 4 qbank q’s, figured I’d share. Will post answers in a little while. Enjoy.
open trade - China/India Educational - Russia/India
aging population is Russia and… India (total guess on India)
Macro - Russia Education - India Open trade - China Eff. Institution - Brazil Aging Russia & Brazil (guess on Brazil)
^ aging population… India and Russia
answers: Which BRIC has the lowest/weakest: 1. Macroeconomic stability- BRAZIL 2. Efficiency of Institutions- RUSSIA 3. Open trade- INDIA (I had guessed China b/c of them all pegging the yuan and stuff, but now I’ll try to remember how annoying it is to invest in India- access swaps, blahhhh, India it is) 4. Educational system- INDIA (this surprised me actually) Bonus- which 2 BRICS have the most rapid aging of their population? RUSSIA and CHINA ok I reviewed ss6 and ss7 so far today, going to take a hard look at my notes now at ss8 and then review. i checked out yesterday open book CFAI 2006. i realize that where I am in my learning, I need to learn more before I can do these exams not open book at all. I know almost no formulas cold yet. bad kitty. still have a month. long time. i feel in trouble, but we’ll see how much can be learned in a month. i am fairly motivated right now… maybe this me start late stuff will help me avoid any burnout. thx for playing team. resume your studying.
But why are we naming the BRICs countries for each of these elements? It’s not a LOS guys!
Neither is when are the exam tickets going to be posted, but that seems to be an important topic lately.
