Used CFA Center & notes found for free on the web, put in ~100 hours, scored like 40th percentile on CFA Center exams. Passed. Only regret is that level II is in 5.5 months!

Used nothing but CFACENTER(!). Clocked 52 hrs on on this website, plus some time of offline studying. Glad I passed, pleased with scores. AC (Financial statement analysis) is the only section where i scored below 50%. Did feel during the exam that cfacenter notes and samples were not sufficient in trhis section, especially what concerns turnover ratios.

A word of warning to 2004 CFA I candidates. Study as many samples as you can, dont leave everything for the last two weeks, as Schweser suggests. I have studied finance twice in the past, and this can partially explain why i passed having not put much effort into preparing for the exam.

I used CFA questions and summary notes on each topic and passed - the best 40 bucks I have spent given that other compaies want US$600- 1000 for inferior notes.

Thank you to the CFACENTER team if they would like to contact me with some 'style' of questions from 2003 I would be more than happy to assist as I remember a fair few

Kalps, I have to join you in expressing my deepest gratitude to the creators of cfacenter.

For me it has been a great learning resource, and I'd be happy to recommend it to other candidates. Clear A+ for both design and content.

I passed! I did not get a chance to tell you before the exam - but your site was excellent. I will definitely take it next year for Level II.
