This reserve is pretty good but it is dated and ripe for an revise. It does cover a great deal of floor and important topics and will so in a reasonably succinct and clear manner. I purchased this written reserve for my risk-management class at NYU. Up to now, it is a great read. I will recommend this written reserve to people who would like to go after a lifetime career in financial risk. I used this text for a course designated: Computer Simulation & Risk Assessment. Pairing it with the amazing program absolutely, Matlab, became a difficult, though enlightening experience ultimately. Great book; great course.
And the written text retains a high residual value, so offering after using is not a bad idea for those not thinking about keeping it in their long-term collection. Jorion’s Value at Risk (VaR) will almost surely be assigned in the 2009 2009-Financial Risk Manager (FRM) curriculum. Regardless, it is strongly recommended as an excellent intro to VaR.
There is so much confusion about VaR. For instance, some continue to think VaR assumes normality. But, simulated VaR (historical or Monte Carlo) methods require no distributional assumption in any way; and parametric VaR doesn’t need a standard. Normal is popular for just two reasons: (1) it’s a fine place to start learning and (2) VaR was created in short-term trading (market risk), arguably the only place is having a location!
Jorion’s publication, like all others, should be up to date for the credit crunch. Chapters on stress testing and liquidity risk now appear much too short (although his review of liquidity risk is among the best you could have found before the crisis). The strength of this book is its ease of access; math is utilized but most is at gentle reach. For FRM candidates, please note that two of the chapters are deceptively brief but they require significant time to digest: you will need to read Chapter 7 on collection analytics and Chapter 11 on VaR mapping more often than once.

I guarantee you 7 and 11 will require lots of your time! Also, another thing about Jorion that I’ve discovered over the years, as I’ve taught risk: he is careful and precise with vocabulary (without pedantry), making him among the best writers in the curriculum. My only criticism of the publication is its topical ointment ambition: in wanting to cover too many topics, he only flirts with several to inadequate impact.
Chapters 4 and 5 set up the introduction to generic VaR strategies; i.e., simulation backward (historical), ahead (Monte Carlo), or parametric. However the EVT intro is insufficient. Chapter 7 is normally designated in the FRM. It needs some read, due to the high density, but it is rather sharp. Explains incremental VaR, marginal VaR, component VaR, and their associations (also to stock portfolio beta).
