    that's what I'm saying. ASM is harder than required so we are mentally prepared for the worst possible. ACTEX is VERY easy compare to ASM, that's why I think it's a joke. Too bad I didn't store any...

    What's the question asking? if it's something like expected payoff or profit or something, I would think we need to use true prob. Questions asking for price of options, we generally use risk-neutral...

    I'm sure you'll pass if you have that much time. I'm sitting in Nov also, and barely getting into the mode of studying, hope school won't be a big problem. Good luck!

    At a time like this, aim for more. Aim for 5 before you graduate, you'll probably end up with 3-4. With that, an internship should be easier than those with 1-2 exams, and probably will lead to full...

    Most important thing you need to know is, 16-18 will NOT give you a pass. Averaging 16-18 is definitely a sign to study harder. So before you go take your next one, aim to get a 25+ on average on...

    I chose MFE because I passed FM after P, and MFE sort of follows up on a lot of FM stuff, so I can start MFE right away without reviewing FM. When I do start MLC, I need to review for P. So if you...

    Asm

    Messed up the title by accident. This is the 8th edition ASM FM manual. I used this and passed August sitting FM with ease. $60, shipping included within USA. Pure clean pages, no markings.

    The reason why simple interest rate is so simple is because you can simply accumulate by the amount of time it's invested. If 5 years, 1+5i. So for simple interest rate, a(10)/a(5) would be incorrect.

    At the end of each year, interest plus 100 is withdrawn. First year, interest is 1000(6%)=60, plus 100, so 160. Second year, interest is 900(6%)=54, plus 100, so 154, and so on for 10 years total. So...

    a(10) is the rate for money deposited at t=0, accumulated to t=10. To accumulate for money deposited at, say t=n, you need to use a(10)/a(n) as the rate.

    so integrate from 0 to 10,...
