Prepartion notes

I am planning to give CFA level-1 exam in June 2009. I dont have any financial background. What all things I need to study . Is material provided by CFA institute is enough ? I have heard many taking notes of Schweser. Is it necessary ? what all material should I take from Schweser.

With no financial background I would recommend first reading the text. If you find that you are lacking pick up Schweser and either way purchasing Qbank is a must. Good Luck!
