How to prepare Code of Ethics and Standards of professional conduct for CFA level 1 exam?

Hi,

How to prepare Code of Ethics and Standards of professional conduct for CFA level 1 exam?

Can I rely on schwesernote?

Should I read CFA Curriculum (books from CFA institute)?

Should I read Standards of Practice Handbook, Eleventh Edition (effective 1 July 2014) (Corrected September 2014)

thanks

I’d say that most prep providers and candidates in the program unanimously agree that the actual CFAI material is the best source for prepping for the Ethics section. Read the CFAI’s materials within the CFAI text you get with your enrollment in the program, work through the cases presented for each standard and do all the end-of-chapter problems. If you’re scoring well (>70) on that you should be set. As the exam date nears, topic tests and additional problems provided by prep providers in their question banks or mock exams should be more than enough.
