How did you guys find it? Anyone know how it compares ot the real deal? Anybody find it odd that the average score is in the 50’s? 

LIFO Liquidation

Hi Guys,

Just a quick question on liquidation. I read that the liquidation (over a period of rising prices) will cause taxes to rise as you pay more tax on the higher gross profit earned. However I thought that items are taxed based on their balance sheet value and future economic benefit– or is this only for long lived asset with depreciation?

Thanks

Need Last Min Advice Please!

Hi all, 

The level 1 exam is in a week, so far I’ve taken several mock exams and I’m averaging between low and mid 70’s overall. The only concerning thing is my Ethics scores seem to be getting worse with every exam. My last exam I scored a 55% on ethics… I’ve read both Kaplan and CFAI text on ethics but it seems like there is always some minor nuance to every question that trips me up, something just isn’t clicking.

Any advice on how to better approach the ethics questions aside from exhausting the Qbank between now and exam time?

Thanks

Standard IV(A) vs Standard IV(B)

Hi,

do I understand it properly, that you need to get an approval from your employer if you want to provide services outside your company SIMILAR to those you provide as employer of your company (IV(A)), but you also need to get written conset from your employer to get additional compensation for ANY kind of work (eg. serving on a board of private company) you do outside your company IV(B)? SIMILAR and ANY are the key words here.

Thanks for clarification!!

Regards

Petr

Hello everyone,

I will take the CFA level 1 exam in December 2016. I was looking at additional recourses to study the courses. 

Is there someone here who bought the Level 1 CFA review courses (platinum, gold or silver), and is willing to share his/her experience? 

Thank you.
