T-Test Concerning Mean of Two Populations

Does anyone know if we are required to know and use the various t-test formulas concerning the means of two populations (pooled, not pooled, paired comparisons)? The LOS says just to “identify the appropriate test statistic and interpret the results for a hypothesis test concerning the mean difference of two normally distributed populations.” I know that we are normally not responsible for something if it is not stated in the LOS but I just wanted to check.


I wouldn’t think that we would be asked to calculate that on the CFA exam.

I think, however, that it appeared on one of the Schweser (?) mocks. Don’t really remember. But unless anyone else has input on this, I’m not going to memorize the formulas.

Haven’t come across any questions concerning the actual formula and Schweser says we aren’t responsible for knowing the formula.
