    I am not good at DM

    I am at the point where I am doing practice exams and fixing mistakes. However, I am terrible at the Derivative Market problems. I went through and smashed all the problems in MacDonald so I thought I knew what I was doing.

    Anyway, I am curious if any of you are having the same experience or had the same experience. I guess I need to go back and review some more.

    I had the problems too when preparing for my FM in May. I studied ASM manual and DM textbook over and over again, then did the practice exercises in the textbook and manual. The method helped me a lot because when I sat for my exam, I could do most of the DM questions.

    Hope this helps.

    same here man!

    I know all the formulas for the interest theory part like I know the back of my hand without really having to study intensely.

    but for some stupid stupid reason, I always have to think really hard to remember the simplest things in DM like call/put... bid/ask.... long/short.
