AuthorTopic: CFA Level 1 December - only using CFA books?
@2018-09-02 22:38:42
So I've got about 15 weeks until Level 1 exam in December 2018.

I don't have the financial resources to purchase 3rd party material such as Schweser notes.

Is it realistic to go through the CFA books in 12 weeks (leaving 3 weeks for review/mock exams)?

I am not working at the moment so I can afford to put in 6 hours per day (I can do 8 hours a day but I want to minimize risk of burnout).

6 hours a day for 12 weeks straight puts me at 504 hours (Keep in mind I have no background in Finance/Accounting at all).

Is it possible to cover the CFA books in 500 hours?

Given the daily commitment you're willing to make, yes you can absolutely do it. Don't get bogged down in any 1 section even if your comprehension is < 100%. And no/few "zero" days. If youâ??ve had no stats, no econ, no finance, no accounting it'll be much harder, but still do-able.

also , save ethics for the end

CFAI materials have everything you need. Get the $99 package from AnalystNotes - it is considered to be the same value as Schweser Pro by many candidates I know.
