|Author||Topic: Notes and general advice please|
I have just graduated doing a relevant degree course. I have no work experience in the finance area. I also do not have the resources to afford training courses or different sets of notes. I am thinking about ordering one set of notes (e.g. Stalla). I have read everyone's comments on the various notes available. Will the Stalla notes be sufficient to pass level 1.
|Get your concepts right...couldn't stress that enough. Make sure you UNDERSTAND the nitty gritty. You will not see much calculations...even those will be based on the core concepts. And while you are studying, make sure you aren't distracted. That never helps.|

|I never even heard of all these notes before. How should I study? i'm good at finance but I don't about using this calculator thing. It's new to me.|

I am happy to say that I passed! Your study notes certainly helped prepare me for what was the most difficult exam I had ever taken.
