Firstly, good luck to those waiting on results!
I’m taking the Dec 2014 Level 1 exam in Vancouver & thought I would get some advise from the esteemed community here on AF. I do not have a business background during my undergrad. I was a science major; however, I worked for four years with a team of IAs in an admin, marketing, sales capacity.
I started leisurly studying about a month ago and have logged about 45 hours covering Ethics & Quant from Schweser.
My plan is to use Schweser exclusively for;
Ethics, Quant, Econ, CF, AI and Derivatives
& Use the CFAI curriculum for;
FRA, Equity & FI
Other than that focus on all EOC questions for each topic, QBANK & some Mocks. I’m aiming for about 400 hours, due to my lack of first hand experience in these areas. I’m currently between jobs as I spent the last year living abroad, so I should have more time than the average person for studying.
Also, has anyone heard of Biotech specific equity research?
