At 2-3 hours of study time per day, it usually takes 1-2 weeks to complete the workbook. If you don't grasp a term, use a reference book or conduct an internet search for similar notions. It would be risky to sit for an exam if you don't understand most of your concepts, given most of them are conceptual questions.

On every exam, you will face MCQs (multiple choice questions) with only one correct answer. In addition, some exams include numerical problems for which calculators and excel sheets are permitted throughout the examination. Because most tests carry negative scores, you should study thoroughly.

After you've finished studying the workbook, you can take a few NISM Equity Derivatives Mock Tests to see how prepared you are. If you pass the Pass4sure mock exams with ease, you should have a good chance of passing the final exam.
