Hi, nothing rocket science here, but I’m starting up again for December’s exam, and I was just thinking…
Why wouldn’t I want to go from bottom-up understanding instead of top-down as normally recommended (mainly when you have 6+ months to study…).
In practice, this could mean I would read the key concepts at the back of the Schweser study sections, then the Secret Sauce for more clarity, and only then dig into the full Schweser texts to get additional insight on areas I feel I need to read up more or get further understanding.
This way, I can get through the curriculum way quicker, have awareness for the key concepts I need to know for the exam, and then fill out my details and gaps primarily through practice questions (which is what seems to be recommended anways (i.e. getting to questions and exams sooner)).
I personally think this is quite smart, but I’d love to hear other opinions, especially from current charter holders. Thank you.
