Has anyone come up with a mnemonic device for these? Here are mine:

Headers, I-VII

Professional Investors Don't Disclose Internal Confidential Relationships

Professionalism

K.I.M.M. - I just think of the band KISS, plus it helps that both M words start with Mis (rhymes with KISS)

Integrity

Model Mayhem (hot model website) - both words start like Ma, like in Mayhem

Duties to Clients

Loyal, Fair, Suitable, Performance Preservation. Not really a mnemonic, but easy to remember and helps with the real words.

Duties to Employers

Last Asshole Remains (seems like the shitties bosses are always the last to go)

Investment Analysis

Diligent Communist Records (Helps with the words again)

Conflicts of Interest

Disclose Prior Referrals (Helps with the words again)

Responsibilities of CFA Institute

Can't Read

I didn't even attempt to memorize them. I just did so many practice problems that I started to intuitively know what was right/wrong.

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!
