Level I

Clarification required regarding CFA study material.


I am new to CFA and I have a very basic question. 

On visiting the CFA institute site I see a one-time program enrollment fees ($450) which covers the cost for the eBook (contains the complete curriculum you need to study)

I was planning to the purchase the Schweser study material. Would these be redundant?

Also, I was planning to register for the exam later since I plan to give it in June 2017. Will it be wise to purchase Schweser study material now and again receive the course ebooks after registration?



Question about valuing call option in derivatives

I got this question from Prepsmarter

Assume that the value of a put option with a strike price of $100 and six months remaining to maturity is $5. For a stock price of $110 and an interest rate of 6%, what value is closest to the corresponding call option with the same strike price and same expiration as the put option?

A- $17.87

B- $11.99

C- $12.74

What I did was compute the present value of the exercise price which came to 97.12 and then subtracted it from 110 to get  C option as the answer

But the correct answer is 

CFA or CPA for FA Job?

Hello everyone. For an entry level Financial Analyst role, would the CFA be a qualification? I recently graduated and am looking at entry level roles, including FA. A lot of them list CPA candidate as a requirement, and only a few have CFA listed as a qualification. 

Structuring the prep: Reading / EOC Qs / Qbank

Hi - using Schweser to study for LI and just have a few Qs to CFAs in terms of structuring the prep best:

1. Would you read each reading and then do both the EOC questions OR only do the EOCs questions after eack topic?

2. Would you read the answer after every question instantly?

3. When would you start using the Qbank - after each reading or topic or after having read all topics?

4. Would you do the Schweser mocks before or after the Qbank?
