Description

This course covers the first three topics in the Quantitative Methods module of the FRM Part 1 Curriculum.

The topics are:

1. Probability Concepts

2. Basic Statistics

3. Distributions

An add-on lecture has been added under the "Distributions" section to understand the Normal Distribution clearly.

The remainder of the curriculum has been covered in the full "FRM Part 1 Online Training" Course.

Who this course is for:
• FRM Part 1 Candidates
