My Biggest fear is to get time to study as I am in job, and then have to take care of family as well. I always fear that I would not be able to complete the material. Till now I have done Quant mostly from CFAI with EOC questions, and going through micro economics. I think I am already behine schedule but still I am not able to put more than 1.5-2 hours a day. What should I do
Same as u! I m afraid not to reach the end of the curriculum. I work and have several commitments so It s really hard to find the time. Sometimes it s hard to focus and the most critical point is that I cant manage several continuous hours. Most of the time I work one hour in the morning and one hour in luch time only!
My biggest fear is that my study plan is wrong to begin with. After searching for advice online, I got the Schweser books and am currently going through them. I started on 12/30 and figured out how many pages a day I’d have to average to finish the material with a month left until the exam (about 12.5 per day and I’m currently averaging about 18 pages a day). Once I’m done, I plan to go through as many practice questions as I can in the last month and review the sections where I have the most trouble. Usually taking practice exams is what helps me the most when preparing for tests, but there’s so much material that I’m afraid that I may not get a good idea of what areas I need more work in.
Study plan is just a general idea, but at the end of the day, you need to see results!
like i said in many many posts… people need to start doing mock exams EARLY! After each session (or few sessions) go to the corresponding exam questions and try to solve them! if you don’t get them correctly, that means you haven’t studied enough. it’s better to know as early as possible than to leave everything till the last minute.
Reading # of pages do not mean anything if that does not translate to results.
