I have looked through the various threads, and there seems to be scattered bits here and there relating to a person with a non-finance related background preparing for the CFA level 1.
I was hoping to get advice from those who are in my position or close to it:
- I have a degree in Criminology, and I took one introductory statistics class in university. I have also completed the Canadian Securities Course. Other than that, I have no background in finance.
What do you recommend for a study period and a study package? For example, the University of Toronto offers a prep course for the CFA level 1 but it is $4000, and I am not sure I need it. Any opinions?
