Schweser vs. CFA1

Im just getting started studying for the June09 Level 1 and I cant decide whether its worth it to purchase the Schweser study package or just study the CFA Level 1 text. Any thoughts? Ive heard Schweser can help a lot. And also what package would people recommend? I think I would only need the study notes but on their site I see about 10 different packages from full on interactive CDs all the way down to flashcards. Any insight is appreciated.

Stalla. Peter Olinto is my hero

CFAI is good but contains a lot of redundant material

Assuming that I pass Level 1 in December, I’m going to use Stalla for Level 2. I’ve been using solely the CFAI texts, but greatly prefer the Stalla material that a friend of mine has been using to study. The Stalla notes seem to be more “to-the-point” and you could use the CFAI texts for any additional clarification on the subject.

sammm, what’s your e-mail address?

What about Schwaeser instead of Stalla? Which books are the majority of people out there reading? I always thought it was Schwaeser as they were the better option?
