AuthorTopic: actual investment practice necessary?

Will being in an actual investment job improve one's chances of passing the CFA exams because of sheer job exposure? Or would anyone recommend hitting all the books and materials instead, then getting into actual practice after being comfortable with the material?

I think job experience improves your chances, of course. However, I've been told by every CFA I know that practicing questions, especially old test questions, is the key to passing. Get through the readings as fast as you can to give yourself a lot of time for questions and time to review readings in your weak subject areas.

I think the consensus so far is that it takes good examination skills on top of everything to improve one's chances for accreditation. Of course, I've been told by my Graduate School professor (a CFA, too)that I'll stay in limbo if I do pass all the exams but not have any investment experience...Anyway, I think I have enough information to plan for the coming three years.
Ok, good luck you fellows!!! I hope you all pass your respective exams!

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.
