AuthorTopic: Level I Question
@2005-05-09 17:15:58
Hello everyone:

I've been monitering the board for a little while now, and this is my first post.

I was wondering if I could get a little advice from those of you who are going through the process?

I'm interested in working as a junior analyst for a mutual fund or possibly as a mutual fund wholesaler when I graduate from my MBA program. Regarding the CFA exam, I do not have any financial analyst experience, and my school courses are my first true exposure to the topic. While I really enjoy finance, and can work hard to learn the concepts in class, I'm by no means a brilliant financial wizard, or posses a real aptitude for math. Based on your experience, and what you might know regarding the CFA test procedure, could I potentially be in over my head, at least at this stage of the game, preparing and studying for this test? I have no problem working really hard, I'm just wondering if at this point if the material would be a little over my head?

Basically, can anyone learn the material as long as they are willing to put in the time and effort? I guess I'm just a little intimidated after having looked at the AIMR website and looked at the extensive suggested reading list, and reading many of your posts.

Thank you, any advice at all would be greatly appreciated!
