Hi all,

This is my first post here and I am impressed with the quality and amount of information available here.

I have a tech/engineering background and I am taking the Level 1 10 exam, but I only started preparing for it today - March 29th 2010. I have only two months to go and am trying to figure out the best way to cover all the material. I know the recommended time for preparation is 4 months, but I was late to register for the exam and to decide about taking it.

I would appreciate if folks could share some tips/suggestions for my study plan and which topics to focus more on and things like that. Thanks in advance.

Do you have ANY finance/accounting/economics in your background?

I hate to say it, but if you're starting from scratch you have a monumental challenge ahead.

you need to up the hours if you want to hit the recommended 250...which I don't think is close to enough for adequate prep and I was an Econ major. if you don't pass in June, at least you will have a good idea of what you need to do for Dec. AnalystNotes site seems decent, but the CFAI readings are extremely long, you definitely need a study guide of some sort. practice questions are key.

If I were you I would reschedule for December. You may want to talk to the AnalystNotes team about reentering your membership here for the December exam instead.

I am happy to say that I passed! Your study notes certainly helped prepare me for what was the most difficult exam I had ever taken.
