This course is free! However, if you buy a package, you will be able to keep track of your personal development and statistics. You will also get access to the interview tips. Also be sure to check out the Customizable Mental Arithmetic Test! Here, you can provide a wide range of settings yourself. This allows you to optimally train the types of questions that you want to improve. What makes this tool so great is that you can find statistics about your speed per operator (+, -, *, /), but also per type (integers, decimals, fractions). This helps to identify the areas where you lose most of your time during a test, such that you can improve it with the custom tool!
A lot of interviews have a mental arithmetic and sequences test in the first round. Without preparation, these sequences might overwhelm you. Exercise is key, because after a while you start to recognise all kind of sequences very quickly. Check out the examples:
Brain teasers are an important part of the trading interviews. There is almost no trading firm that won’t ask you to solve a brain teaser. Your approach and behaviour during solving might become more important than the actual answer itself. Take a look at the different categories at the course page. You can also try out some examples. From time to time, we will also share some examples of interview questions through our social media accounts.
Derivatives and Option Theory
Trading companies are nowadays more interested in students with a technical background then ever before. The companies know that these students do not have a financial background, however, most of them expect you to have a general – and sometimes in depth – knowledge of the general types of derivatives and the mathematical elaboration behind it. This course will first take you through the theoretical description of the different kind of financial instruments, before it continues into the mathematics of option theory. Check out the preview pages at the bottom of this page. From time to time, we will also share some examples of interview questions through our social media accounts.
How do you prepare for market making game during trading interviews? Market making is an essential part of the interview for a lot of trading companies. The interviewer can test the applicant’s intuition, stress-resistance, sharpness, short-term memory and the applicant’s ability to draw conclusions from information. This course will first explain how market making works by getting into the background information, by explaining what limit order books are and how they operate. After the introduction to limit order books, this course will continue by explaining how the market making game usually works during an interview. Finally, Trading Interview will provide you with a unique tool, in which you can simulate a market making game. Do you want to try out an example? Click here! Additionally, we also have a very useful card game, which is known to be a frequently faced game during trading interviews. These market making games provide you with the best possible preparation for your interviews. Check out the card game screenshots at the bottom of this page!
The Linear Algebra course helps you to briefly recap the linear algebra topics from university. This branche of mathematics proves to be a very powerful tool for structuring and processing a large amount of data. Therefore, it is also important that a quant has a good understanding of linear algebra. The course is a theoretical recap and has no focus on interview questions. The reason behind this is because the questions during interviews are usually rather theoretical, which is different compared to – for example – the questions regarding probability theory.
The Asset Pricing course is very theoretical. It summarises the important articles and topics from asset price courses on universities at a graduate level. During interviews at asset management firms, the firms usually test your theoretical knowledge about the industry – more often compared to the interviews at high frequency trading firms. Our course could spare you a lot of time to loop up all the topics and study them from scratch. Just as the linear algebra course, this course doesn’t focus on interview questions, for the same reason that the questions are rather theoretical. Therefore, it’s important to have a good understanding of the lessons.

How do you prepare for programming questions for quant interviews? The Programming course will help you with real interview examples. You can find the exercises and try to find the solutions in your own coding environment (so, no coding on the website). The do’s and don’ts page will also provide you with tips & tricks to have a clean code submission during your interviews. We also provide a wide variety of lessons related to machine learning, such that you’ll get a good refresher of all relevant topics and terminology in the machine learning are.
