Ever forget your calculator? What did you do?

Did you ever forget your calculator for a CFA exam, but only realise when you were at the exam door? What did you do? Wing it? Try and go back home? Beg someone for their second calculator?

Make the most of your CFA® Progam prep in one weekend! Join renowned instructors Peter Olinto & David Hetherington in May for a live, two-day intensive final review class.

Bring cash with you to the exam center. Someone will sell you their spare for the right price.

I brought two calculators to my lvl1 exam. Was asked by a young lady if she could use my back-up since she had forgotten hers. I said no and felt like ****. 

It ain't what you don't know that gets you in trouble. It's what you know for sure that just ain't so.

If they’re smart, they’ll only lease it to him … for the exam day.

Simplify the complicated side; don't complify the simplicated side.

After the exam, you may not find the leaser again! Better take their DL license as collateral and don’t forget to take a haircut too.

You should probably lay down and rot boyo. There’s three things you have to take with you - pencil, calculator, passport/exam-ticket (I bundled the last two). You probably aren’t ready for the exam (much less to manage client dollars) if you can’t remember that one significant thing.

¯\_(ツ)_/¯ It be like that sometimes.

If you’re hardcore enough, you don’t need no calculator. 

If you're the first out the door, that's not called panicking

I used all 21 digits god gave me, like a real man.

I left the house pretty early those days… probably could have went home and back multiple times and still made it in time for the start.

We’re gonna win so much, you may even get tired of winning. And you’ll say, 'Please, please. It’s too much winning. We can’t take it anymore. Mr. President, it’s too much.' And I’ll say, 'No, it isn’t!' We have to keep winning!

Panic would cause more harm than not having a calc. Calm down, attempt the paper, call for a calc in the break. 

I guess you still could pass by not having a calc for the first session.

Most of the questions, you could easily eliminate one option without having to do the calculation.
