|Author||Topic: CFA Level I Textbooks|
Following are the required textbooks for CFA level I. Is that all we require for Level I or there are some which Iím missing here? Moreover, should I buy the CFA study material compiled by CFA institute for $395 or textbooks would be a better option?

|I have found the CFA institute compliled text books helpfull in the sense that they save a lot of time which I'd otherwise spend in jumping from one book to another and finding required part.|
Yes, i do have background in finance and currently i'm a market analyst in Dubai. Hence, CFA compiled textbooks plus this sites notes will be a good option.
