AuthorTopic: any free CFA Study material?
@2007-11-28 09:40:23

I am planning to take CFA level 1 exam in future (Dec 08 or Jun 09). I want to prepare for the CFA level 1 exam. Is there any CFA 2007 and 2008 books or study material free? I just want to read the past notes to gain an understanding first before i register for the CFA Level 1 exam and to get the CFA text book.

Please let me know where to get. Please donate the CFA Level 1 study material to me. Thanks advance.

To gain an understanding of the program, you could check out CFA Institute's overview of the program on:-

In my opinion, reading past notes is not a particularly good idea since there are frequent changes to the curriculum in between years. You should be able to get a general idea of what you're up againt without reading those notes. Once you've decided to follow the program (if you do) you're better off with current notes.

I had checked the link you posted. All I can find is Study Session 1 Readings provided by CFA institute. How about the rest of the Study Session? Where can I get other Study Session readings? Please help me.

You can't find it unless you buy it.

What you can find is the general overview of the curriculum. With this overview you should be able to get a general understanding of what the curriculum is about.

Alternatively, think of the first study session and multiply it by 18 x 3, that way you'll get some idea of the material you will have to go through (albeit the character of the text will be different depending on the subject, for instance in Quant it's more mathematical).

Or, you could purchase AnalystNotes' notes. That is also a way to gain some understanding of what you're up against.

If you don't even want to spend $99 to get the full set of practice questions and study notes, I'd suggest you don't try this exam -- think about how much time you are going to spend on these study notes and questions, and then $99 is nothing.

I just wanted to share the good news that I passed CFA Level I!!! Thank you for your help - I think the online question bank helped cut the clutter and made a positive difference.
