CFA after CPA

How much does a CPA help you while studying for CFA?

After passing the CPA exam early last year, I have finally taken the plunge and registered for the CFA exam -June 16.

I have gone through a couple of readings of financial reporting and analysis section and it seems that I have covered quite a bit while stuidying for the CPA. 

Not that the two are related, but just anxious to know, if it would just ease out the burden of going through so much content (studying the CFAI issued material).

CFA Charter = Return Ticket to Finance??? // Financial Industry Rant

I recently passed Level 3 and have applied to the Institute.

Anyway, I am very glad to be done with the exams because since the day I entered into the Finance industry four years ago, I have realized one thing - it’s not the same and never will be. Everything we do (back/middle/front office, doesn’t matter) is scrutinized by regulators, auditors, compliance, etc. and it makes it very difficult to do business.

Finished Level X, do you keep your prep books or toss them?

Hey all, 

Personally, I made it over the Level 2 exam. Haven’t looked at my books since but I’m in the process of moving. Was wondering, did you all keep your prep books? Did you light them on fire? What ever became of your prep books? Thanks!
