|Which volume would you say requires the most time and effort?
Though FSA is time consuming but it is interesting. I have found Ethics to be tricky or at least they require active presence of mind while judging the situations especially when deciding about which standard is being violated.
What do you think?
|Both quant and FSA are difficult but not necessarily because the material is overly complex (Not easy:) ). I think these topics are challenging because there is so much material. If one had to learn probability theory in isolation it would not be so bad but this combined with the numerous other topics and subtopics makes it challenging. For this reason alone, most people need to start preparing well in advance of the exams.|
|I think the section on derivatives is quite difficult. In terms of study time, FSA is the most time consuming.|
