Just got into the office and covered off 30 minutes of Ethics. On the way home if I can do the same, thats 1 hour of study time I take public transit 3 times a week. 22 weeks left until the exam. Thats 66 hours of study time or 66/ 250 = 26% of the “reccomended study time” It beats reading those useless free dailys or staring at the same subway ad over and over. Anyways, I know the above is extremely optimistic and various factoes come into play ( i.e not getting a seat, crammed subway etc…) but im trying to justify a vacation in April without feeling guilty of missing study time !!
I can’t really study on public transit but I can review. When I study I make note-cards and write problems on a notebook. Anywhoo… i saw this extremely attractive blond girl studyin with a level 3 Schweser book @ Harvard Square yesterday ~5:30pm.

That can be Bannisja! I usually take a nap in public transit
^ lol I was thinking it might be Bannisja. I wanted to scream Bannisja to her and see if she would respond but I chickened out.
I’m in Boston too. The orange line is no good for studying though. Too worried I am going to be knifed while my nose is buried in a book.
The orange line is ghetttoooo. Not as bad as the redline going south to Mattapan thou. Theta where do you live, JP?
Nope, the other end. Melrose. The orange line is funny; each stop brings on a new ethnicity, so by the time you hit Back Bay you could be shot/knifed by a UN of thugs.
LOL. I live at the last stop (south) on the Orange line and have no issues busting out my L3 Might be the only person on the train reading anything other than the daily Tiger Woods, Britney, Celtics, Patriots updates from the Metro
yes definitely used the time to review the materials, memorizing the forumlas etc. iphone is your best friend!! I typed my own notes as well as using some apps that support PDF.
Yes, in all seriousness, train time is perfect for some studying. It’s dead time anyway, so why not fill it with some Schweser action?
In case you guys are not aware of it, there is a Iphone application from Allen CFA for level III, just released a few days ago. I have not tried it, but it seems to be a good tool for reviewing during downtime.
i do 10-13 pages of cfai material each on the morning commute and afternoon commute. Wear my headphones and listen to music. Easier to absorb the material with background music rather than other people’s conversations and cell phone calls. NYC
