To be totally honest, reading this material is a bit daunting. I already got my MBA and have seen 90% of all the material already. I feel like reading and trying to remember/understand all of the material 100% isn’t an efficient allocation of my time.
Am new to the forum. Have worked in financial services for 6 years (front office for lion’s share of that time). Am in an MBA program now. My question isn’t about how many hours one should study, but about topic focus.
Do those that have passed lev 1 think that it is better to be an expert at 3 topics (Ethics, FinR, Quant) and have a basic understanding of the other topics? Or be a jack of all trades and tackle every topic equally? Continue reading
Just want to confirm I’m studying the best way possible.
Reading Schweiser notes, then doing EOC questions on both Schweiser +CFAI.
Then I am putting notes in flashcards for things I am struggling with/formulas so I can review later.
I plan to do mock exams after I finish reviewing all chapters. Is this a good study routine? Or should/could I be doing more to learn/be more productive?
Thx Continue reading
Hi everyone!, Level1 hopeful here! I apologize if this has been already asked, but can anyone recommmend me any resources online to help me master the advanced features of the BA II+ calculator in the context of the CFA exam?

Thanks! Continue reading
The CFA website says that the work/education requirement for taking the CFA level 1 test can be passed by having four years of work experience that does not need to be investment related.
Does it still need to be finance/business related?
I did logistics in the Navy for five years and I’d like to know if that would meet the work requirement.
Thanks. Continue reading

Any growth/value stocks you guys are following? I’ve been doing some research on First Solar Inc (FSLR) (P/E 11.6) and it looks like a fairly good valuation on a decent amount of upside growth potential. Curious what plays you guys have been in, or are looking into.
Apparently this subject of false allegation is well known to many on this forum. I understand the reason for the institute to use similarity analysis and fully support it but their investigation process and punishment of potentially innocent exam takers is wrong to the core. Continue reading
