New for 2019/obscure topics
Considering that there are a few new readings this year - Fintech in investment managment (CH 6 and part of CH 8) and Analysis of Financial Institutions (CH 17), how likely do you guys think it is that these topics are tested? The fintech stuff (Machine learnings, decision trees, layers of nodes, etc) is not difficult content, but a bit tedious to cram in all of the fine details and key terms. The analysis of financial institutions is a much more substantive (65 pages) chunk of the curriculum and was the focus of a full item set on one of the CFAI mocks, however.
To be clear, I have studied the entire curriculum…I am just wondering how much of a focus should be spent on these (mostly) qualitative readings that rarely come up during practice exams from CFAI, Schweser and in EOCs.
