To have CFA certificate, we have to pass 3 levels, right? I graduated in Information Technology, can I do self-prreparation for this certificate? I work in the office 48hrs per weeks, can I join the exam in June? Is that overload?
|Firstly CFA is a charter and not a certificate. Yes you can prepare by yourself, most of the candidates do. I recently passed the L1 in June 2009, believe me, it's a tough exam. I have Engg background and would have easily put in more than 300 hrs of study.
All the best.
|Nah depends what interests you have and why you want to pursue CFA. If you want to a career shift from IT to finance which inculcates corporate finance, portfolio management, accounting or alternative investments then this field is for you.|

I am using your study notes and I know of at least 5 other friends of mine who used it and passed the exam last Dec. Keep up your great work!
