      Why should I study with a prep provider
      for the FRM® exam?
      If you have been working in the financial risk field for many years and are on top of
      the latest development of the financial risk market, you may feel more confident with
      self-study. However, for most FRM® candidates, self-study might not be the optimal
      study method. Reasons to prepare with a provider:

                        The curriculum of FRM® exam is highly correlated to real issues and
          1             marketplace practices.
                        The exam paper contains “real-world”, practical questions which are
                        developed by experienced market practitioners. In this aspect, the FRM®
                        exam differs from the CFA® exam. FRM® candidates are expected to
                        understand risk management concepts and approaches and those concepts           P3    What’s New? | Students’ Insights
