hi guys i have registered for December 2018 exam.

I have the CFAI books but i am not understanding how to start with it.

I am confused regarding which subject to start first and how many hours should i dedicate every week to studies as i am working?

I need help as to when should i start my studies as i will get my analystnotes pro package in april to try its 10 mock exams.

How many hours should i dedicate in a week to clear in june and where could i get the practice test?

I started with Fixed Income, Quants, FRA, Corporate Finance, Portfolio, Equity, Derivatives, Alternative Investments, Ethics, Economics.

Used to study 2 hours a day normaly but in chunks of 20 minutes each.

Did all topics from Schweser and Ethics apart from GIPS from CFAI books. You should complete your first reading by mid October and then revise all the course. Make sure you organize your study material in a way that you are able to incurr less time while revising. AnalystNotes review exam system is good for practise. And definitely try complete its 10 mock exams!

Good Luck

For June, you should take 10 -15 hrs per week depending upon your speed. There is no defined way of starting the course, still assuming you are relatively new to finance you can start with economics , equity, corporate finance and fixed income. Then you can cover rest of the topics. Ethics can be covered in any order.

Hey, you should try studying with a partner or someone who's already given the exam, like a mentor! It really helped my friend who found a partner. Hope this tip is helpful for you!
