Okay, so I just have two questions: Does the curriculum include the books required to study for the exam? (I’ve looked around and can’t find a clear answer; the cfa website is somewhat vague). My second questions is as follows: Are the scheweser notes the standard that everyone typically gets to aid their studying, and if so, why? Cheers!

Yes and Yes. I chose schweser because everyone on here seemed to give it the thumbs up as opposed to Stalla.
