Default EOM4

Looking at 2011 EOM4 threads, I get the feeling the new version is a completely different exercise. That is all.

Did you end up reading the Sim Segal book before getting this done?

I skimmed some of the chapters so I'd know what subject matter that was being covered (I did start reading it but I didn't get that far). I did depend on it heavily to complete EOM4 though even if I didn't read it.

By the way I can sell mine pretty cheaply to anyone that wants it. I'll overnight if you pay for that!

Are you talking about the new FAP EOM4?

Yes. I saw your other thread (maxit), I pretty much avoided the reading also but you can't really for EOM4, it's all regurgitation of Sim Segal basically.

Hate to bring back a dead thread, but....

For Task 1, can anyone give me a proper definition for a "Risk Division" as seen in the RCD tool. I am having trouble telling it apart from the actual risk.

Also, the actually risk should be defined by the source and not the outcome. Why are the risks in table 4.1 of Segal defined by the outcome?

Thanks.
