Advice on CAIA I

Hi, I am looking to take the CAIA exam in March. I was an excellent student in school but feel I have been really struggling on this. In school, I had tons of time to devote to studying but I feel now I need to learn how to be efficient and I just have not been. Additionally, I don’t really have weak points in my estimation, everything is just below average.  I have been reading the textbook since August but after visiting this page shifted to Uppermark in late October. Was hoping to get some feedback on my study style because my scores have stalled.

Need advice on CAIA job prospects

Hello everyone,

Sorry about the long text, but I really need some advice.

I finished my master’s degree in Business, Economics and Finance this September. And as investment banking is pretty competitive in the UK,I was quite scared to apply for any graduate jobs in this field. I had the opportunity to be recommended for a middle office associate role in State Street based in Poland, and I was very happy to take it, because I thought this would be a great experience as I will be learning a lot and after a few years I can just go back to the UK and get a proper job there.

1- Is the 3rd edition of the CAIA core book the latest edition? is there another one coming up soon? on amazon apparently there is a 4rth edition issuing  late October. 

Pearson Vue Locker Size

Hi all,

Just wondered does anyone know what size (roughly) the lockers are at a Pearson Vue center? I’ll be staying over the night before my exam so trying to figure out if I should take my laptop or not. 

Thanks

Does anyone have any experience with the CAIA L1 review workshop package? with one month left to go I have read through the CAIA material ( retained very little) and need something for the last month.

Uppermark Question Bank

Hi guys,

Require some advice please. I have read through the Wiley study guide ( Shortened version of the material) and started working through the Uppermark question bank. I am finding the questions very tricky. My ave score hovers around 50%…which is not good at all. 

What level of practice do you think I will need?

Hi, I am an actuarial science student turned into finance student, and as a graduate student, I did not have a lot of finance exposure, except some basic corporate finance, introductory microeconomics and macroeconomics, and basic financial markets knowledge, as I studied mathematics in my undergraduate school. So if I want to take the CAIA exam this year (in September), what level of practice do you think I will need?
