I just order analyst pro package from analyst notes for the 2017 Dec exam. I was wondering if there are any strategies/plan anyone can help me with. for instance, formulas to memorize, do's and don't etc.
I sort of have free time till about mid August before I start working. what will be a very good strategy for now.
|Just start going through the material. At this point, I would worry about memorizing too much, just understand the material the first time reading through.
Personally, I take notes in the margins of the pages, but do what works best for you. Maybe what you have done in your undergrad.
|1. Create formulae sheets. Be very comfortable with using the calculator.
2. Read and re-read material.
3. Understand the weightage allocated to each subject and distribute time accordingly.
4. Ethics is important - read it when you get bored of other subjects. Solve 3-5 (or whatever you are comfortable) problems daily. Ethics is a practice, more you practice the easier it gets.
5. Single biggest advice - Do tons of problems!
