use of "level ii candidate"

So much love, I love it! :stuck_out_tongue:

It’s interesting that we’ve gotten to the point that human interaction is discouraged. Why ask another human who can answer you in 2 seconds when you can go online and read through lots of boring text for 20 minutes before finding the answer? My resume says “CFA Level 2 Candidate, June 2008”

My resume says “CFA Level II Candidate, June 2009”

I checked the L2 forum about year back, and a good number of the current L2 studs made at least one or two clueless questions on the board. We’ve all been newbies, and this forum has a bit of a harder edge than the L1 forum. It takes a while for the puppies to figure things out. So my unasked for $0.02 is that it’s okay to tweak them, but calling someone a moron/fool/lazy twit, etc… is contrary to the goal of the forum, and probably mean spirited in a way that reflects poorly on many of the people who’ve built up such good reputation. After all, it’s intended to be a community where we help each other to slay this beast. To paraphrase Jim Carrey in Batman Forever: “If you kill them, they won’t learn nuthin”

thank you busprof et. al. im not a newbie and i think it should be ok to ask these type of questions even if someone has to have their forum home page cluttered a bit. i may be wrong about that. but if i am, i am shocked, literally shocked at how upset it gets some people. maybe you should get slightly annoyed but to waste more time actually posting a response to it. and the responses!!! anyway i guess im almost doing the same thing right now but i just have to get this off my chest.

ryanwtyler, ZOMG, I hope a monster eats your first born! (Note: I am just kidding. I don’t believe in monsters. Even if they existed, I wouldn’t want them to eat your first born.)

The man asked a question probably because he was “lazy” (or felt inefficient use of his time) to go through the manual, therefore he sought for the expertise of those brilliant and intelligent people of this forum to enlighten him. Its not a crime, but expect there to be sarcasm because there are people out there who simply enjoy such things. Whether or not you like it is up to you; you can’t stop them, but you can ignore them (aka not fueling them).

He listed every way that you CAN’T represent yourself. Ha Ha funny funny! Farley, this joke is only funny to those of us who read the CFA level I material. Stop telling jokes to those who didn’t. It’s condescending. Funny, but still condescending. ryanwtyler, I would recommend reading the textbooks as well as the study notes in order to prepare for the L2. Vol. 1 lists multiple ways that you can and cannot represent yourself as a CFA candidate in a two page exhibit (p. 106 & 107).

I am aware of this option and thought this option would be easier. i was wrong.
