Hey everyone, i’m writing L2 in June and i got the 2007 L2 notes from a friend and don’t really wanna purchase the 2008 set… anyone in the same boat and have any suggestions to bridge the gap/figure out which readings to ignore (from 2007) and add (from 2008 material)? Thanks!
Frankly, Stogart, if I were you I’d watch Tim Smaby’s introduction first (at the Schweser site) and not decide whether or not to buy the current study notes until I had seen his lecture. I’m under the impression that there are some significant changes in the curriculum, and that you just might be under a disadvantage if you try to wobble along on the 2007 curriculum, but that’s just my impression…
Go for the CFAI books then but do not rely on old material. It’s not worth failing the exam over a few cents.
I’m using the CFA books and Schweser 2007. However, the Schweser notes are just a supplement to the CFA books. There are a lot of changes, so I only rely on the notes for clarificacion of specific topics and extra practice problems.
stogart, email me at “v dot raghavan at yahoo dot com” and I will send you the LOS changes so far I have identified and the learning/reading delta between 2007 and 2008
i think it is sufficient to use the 07 notes + cirriculum on the new LOS
