Exam - Mark answer sheet at once or in the booklet?

For the people who have taken the exam previously, what strategy in terms of answering do you suggest. Marking the right answer in the booklet or straight at the answer sheet?

I guess we can use pencils. In case we answer e.g. A, and during review discover that B is correct. Is it simply enough to erase A and fill in B or is the machine that scans the answers really sensitive in this regards?

2014 December CFAI EOC questions vs 2015 June CFAI EOC questions


I don’t have the CFAI textbooks for the upcoming June exam in hardcopy (=just e-books).

However, it’s been a little difficult navigating the chapters and pages on my computer screen so I’m trying to get the 2014 December textbooks in hardcopy from a friend. 

I am aware that some readings have been dropped while others have been added.

For those chapters not affected, will the EOC questions be (almost) identical??

Comments on CFA Society SF Cram Course??

Hi guys, CFA Society in San Francisco is offering a 3-day cram course. 

I’m wondering if anyone used it before? Any comments?

The class is in late may. I have a pretty realistic view of a cram course. I’m not looking for a magical class, but I only want to pay for a comprehensive and professional review, that will complement months of self-studying. 

Thank you all!
