|Author||Topic: Is it too late to start studying for the CFA Level 1?|
I wanted to get a realistic approach on whether its too late to start studying for CFA level 1? I have a background in accounting & finance and I am currently working in the accounting field. I also specialized in Finance during MBA.
I have to admit I am not a person who can study for long hours at a stretch. But, my quality of studying is best when I study in short intervals. So, considering all these factors, where do I stand in taking the level 1 in June? I haven't yet registered and I would really like to take it in June. I understand that each individual has a different capacity for studying but I just wanted to get opinions and personal experiences which can help me decided whether I can really take the exam in June.
Any help is greatly appreciated.

You will be fine, just don't slack off or try to wing it. For someone with any education background in finance, L1 should be 80% repeating what you have learned before.
3 months is more than enough for L1.

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