Quick question

To clarify, I just signed up for CAIA level 1. This isn’t like the CFA where they send you prep materials, you’re required to go out and get them yourself?

I ordered the cirriculum book from Amazon for $135 bucks. I downloaded the CFA SOP Handbook from the CFAI website for free.

Yes, you have to buy your own materials separately! I don’t think CAIA has the test-taker volume to create the economies of scale necessary to include materials in the registration fee.

My Uppermark stuff just arrived. I am underwhelmed at the size. I know not to underestimate this exam but when comparing the materials to the CFA exam it is a fraction of the size. Are there any CAIA vets that would like to list the most tricky sections of the exam? Thanks.
