Would anyone be kind enough to send me an errata form for Schweser Practice Exams (both volumes, if possible)? Unless I’m going crazy, I feel like there are some errata in the exams and I’m getting frustrated. Please email to ok.bye2009 @ y a h o o . c o m. Thank you.
Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
Here’s the errata for volume 1 and 2, if you have online access you can get it there also: Practice Exams, Volume 1 Correction Page 215, 223 question 13.5 the correct answer should be choice C “neither statement is correct”.

Both are incorrect” Posted: 2009-03-11 Correction Page 215, 223 the answer for question 13.6 should be choice C “Both Castillo and Diaz are incorrect” and in the answer explanation it should also say “Castillo is incorrect” Posted: 2009-01-29 Clarification Page 227 question 15.4, the answer explanation is not clear as to where the 0.2% depreciation comes from, but it is the U.S. risk free rate minus the European risk free rate (4.8 – 5 = -0.2%), and this represents the forward discount for the euro. This means that the euro will depreciate by -0.2% based on the risk free rates in both countries. The other -1.2% mentioned in the question refers to the manager’s expectations of what will happen to the euro relative to the dollar. When a person hedges using a forward contract they lock in the forward discount (or premium). So in this question it states they are hedging using a forward contract so they are locking in the -0.2% depreciation of the euro. If they had not used the forward contract to hedge the currency risk, then the euro would have instead depreciated by the manager’s expectations of -1.2%.
