… he has forgotten everything learned so far? As you may guess I’m a little stressed by the sheer volume of the material (CFA Level I) and the things we have to know to pass the exam. During my first reading of the curriculum (for FRA and Ethics) and Schweser (for the rest of the topics) I did understand everything quite easy but now I have the worrying feeling I have forgotten almost everything. That’s the main reason I’ve decided to delay taking mock exams and start revising and doing Qbank questions.
How are you doing? For those who have already taken the exam - is that normal or I’ve done something wrong (like not proper study methodology) and I have to put additional hours in my preparation hereafter? Any tips or reccommendations?
You’re doing the right thing, quizzing yourself using QBank. that should get some of your confidence back. Once you master those questions, try the EOC and blue box from Schweser and CFAI. Then walk up whistling to the exam and pass with flying colors.
keep trucking through the material. there’ll come a point where you’ll mentally categorize and prioritize the material (especially lev 1). same goes for l2, but a huge portion of l2 is do-able purely from muscle memory. bang the calculator enough times and your hands will do the work for you.
but most importantly : as test date nears, god will grant you the audacity to flip the bird on the low priority details. haha.
