Hi all..
I was wondering if online notes and exams that are available on is really enough for me to pass CFA level 1 exam.
I do have extensive math background and some economics stuff.. But I do not have a good knowledge in accountings etc...
Your comment will be very appriciated.

PS: I am from Toronto Canada, and work/live in downtown toronto, if any of you wanna get together and study ..

CFA is a professional exam and AnalystNotes notes can be used as a revision material. Reading textbooks are always a better approach. But AnalystNotes notes are very well written and a bit condensed.

Always the choice is yours and how much time you have got, it depends on that.

Are the products offered by useful in preparing you for the exam?

I need to rely SOLELY on any notes I purchase for a few Study sessions as I do not have the books and my undergrad Corporate Finance notes I stupidly gave away.

Same for Fixed income and the last few sessions.

Questions are a bonus indeed, with online answers, but the notes have to be correct.

In my opinion the choice of provider is perhaps not critical at level 1 ... as long as you are prepared to put the hours in doing as many questions as possible prior to the exam - this I think is the key.

So ... I would not worry too much for Level 1 and just do all the available questions whatever the provider, then try and compare your providers notes with another if you can and then make a decision after the exam which you thought 'called' the exam better FOR YOU. Then you 've got an informed decision for the critical Level 2.

Just my thoughts ....

The notes here for Level 1 were fine. You need to supplement them with something, but you can catch on to most of the ideas from those notes.

Level 2 I'm using the books a bit more (I didn't buy anything for level one except this), especially for asset valuations.
