|Hi !What is Your personal expirience / opinion about CFACenter, Schweser, ... What kind of programm should I decide on to pass Level 1 (self-study only).Thx.|
|In my opinion the answer to your question depends a lot on your background. If you already have some training and/or some experience in finance the notes here plus reading the Ethics book should be sufficient for you.I only used cfacenter and found that all the questions on the AIMR Level 1 exam (except some of the Ethics questions) could be answered with the material in this site.|
|I tried both Schweser and Stall (their samples), but finally I decided to use cfacenter's notes not only because it's much cheaper, but also because the quality here is pretty much similar to those of commercial ones. I would not recommend purchasing others at all.
I still think it is good if you can get the textbooks. The textbooks are necessary to inform you on a broader basis. If you do not know much (like me), it is sensible to study the books.
