PAK Study Manual Contains the Following 6 Items


1. PAK Study Manual 

The PAK Study Manual covers the entire "Quantitative Finance and Investment (QF)" syllabus. The PAK study manual is a well organized, beautifully written, and full of clear explanations study guide. It is handsomely presented and reader-friendly. The study manual strives to connect concepts between different parts and sections of the official syllabus. You are also expected to answer the end-of-reading quizzes and the concept questions (+200) that quickly assess your understanding of the materials.

Every chapter starts with a summary or a background of the reading, highlighting the most important points of the reading and ends with testing concept questions and a list of related past exam questions.

The study manual basically distills and synthesizes knowledge, explanation and analysis of virtually all concepts, theories and examples covered in the source material. It ensures that the serious reader develops and maintains a good understanding of the materials.

The study manual bridges several sections of the official reading that discusses similar concepts, allowing you to understand similarities and/or differences (The Girsanov Theorem in Neftci and PW. The ARCH/GARCH model in Tsay and JH. The profit from hedging in PW and Peter Carr.).

The study manual is a valuable tool to quickly gain first time exposure to the reading.
