AuthorTopic: Official books vs Study Notes

Hi there,

Did anyone use the official books and ...failed? It seems to be superior to analystnotes or schweser. For example : reading 48 have 38 pages in the cfa book, 13 in analystnotes and only 11 in schweser! And being that the exam is a very detail oriented one, I just wondering why people use analystnotes (or schweser or whatever)? Could somebody give me a explanation? ( I must decide which one to use for dec'08)

The 38 pages in 13 you talk about is the reason why. What you should use depends on a lot of things (experience, education, time, etc.), use the search function, its been discussed before numerous times.

STUDY. it's the only way. finish reading everything at least a good month before the test and focus then on practice tests. some people might disagree with me, but I think a lot of 1st timers don't leave enough time to do practice tests and do final reviews afterwards. do questions as you read stuff- qbank or whatever you have is great for that. every now and again, go back and do some questions on something you haven't looked at for a while to see what you are truly retaining vs memorizing. you can do this- there's no shortcuts though- you have to put in the time.

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