    Ok. Now that its 5.....I couldnt get anything close to any of those answers for #2. And I tried it several different ways. Always came up with the same answer - which wasnt one of the choices.

    I have reread your question about 6 times and still do not know what it is saying. However, the gist seems to be something along the lines of which test should I take after FM. Depends on what you...

    I studied for P for 2 weeks. I studied for FM for 6 weeks. MFE took me 3.5 months. IMO, the material on MFE is much more in depth than P or FM. Then again, I did really well on MFE, so I might...

    Yeah! And you dont win anything for posting on the AO!

    I look at both. I post much more here than there. And it's easier to find certain topics BECAUSE there arent as many threads.

    You havent reached exchanges yet. You can have a dollar denominated call/put on a euro/dollar exchange rate, etc. That's why they denominate it in dollars. They are just being technical
