When CFA community people say they studied for abt 240-300 hours for level 1, does it include the total time including revision, mock tests or its only the time needed to study the entire syllabus for the first time.
I am asking this because I think I will be able to complete the whole course studying for the first time in arnd 120-150 hours. nearly done with 60% course excluding ethics in some 80 hours.And just to add I am not at all related to finance and have never done a course on finance. I am a engineer working in a technical company and want to switch to finance as my career option. Does everybody complete the course this early or its only with me?
