|Author||Topic: how are you guys studying for the exam?|
|I was wondering what study techniques you guys have used / or are using for the level 1 exam. My school bought us the study prep material; AnalystNotes, and I'm having a bit of a difficult time attacking the study material. Do you guys read the sections and practice the basic question at the end of each section? The reason that I ask is that I feel the way I am currently doing it, by reading along taking notes and then attempting the questions at the end of the section is just not working for me. I am having a hard time retaining the information that way, would it be best to simply read over the material and constantly practice the end of section questions?
Any tips would be extremely helpful! Thank you in advance.
|1. Read each chapter and summarize it. Read the study notes if you don't have time. Basically I write down any information that is either new to me or is not intuitive. I end up writing about 50-70% of the chapter.
2. Once done, I immediately tackle the basic questions of each subject for practice.
3. Once I'm done with ONE reading, I review my notes (1 book at a time) and do CFAI EOC questions.
4. Finally, I review all my notes and do review exams for the study session.

I was very pleased with your notes and question bank. I especially like the mock exams because it helped to pull everything together.
