Confused on the naming of the CAIA books...

I have an electronic copy of “CAIA Level I An introduction to Core Topics in Alternative Investments 2nd ed.”

But on CAIA website and study guide, it says to get “Alternative investment: CAIA level I 3rd ed”.

Is the second book a direct succerssor to the first book?


Schweser's 2019 PremiumPlus™ and Premium packages are 20% off when you order by June 13, 2019.

Yes, it is. I would definitely say the revisions are substantial enough that I wouldn’t use the older edition to study for the exam.

do you know where I can get the 3rd ed in pdf copy DRM free?

CFA level 2 candidate, CAIA level 1 candidate, FRM level 1 candidate, CMT level 1 candidate, CQF level 1 candidate, CFP level 1 candidate, CPA level 1 candidate, PhD candidate..

No, I’m not aware of a site that allows you to illegally download this book.

You may want to first legally download the Ethics handbook and review Standard I: Professionalism. Pay particular attention to the Knowledge of the Law and Misconduct sections.
