Hi all,

I am taking CFA level 1 exam in june 2010 and have started preparing for the same.
I think it would be a good idea to start an online discussion group to discuss problems, confusions, questions, topics etc. It will also help us keep ourselves motivated.

Please join the thread if interested!

cheers

Well, I guess we can start discussions here till more people join or we come up with a better idea.

So when did you start? and how much have you finished reading? is this your first attempt?
I started in mid sep and currently doing FRA.

VDN,

I just started studying and I plan to take the test in June. My statement of just started studying means that I've compiled 1545 notes that I typed up and I'm studying them. I work full time and haven't really started fully studying yet. I still have to pay for the test, so I don't have the CFAI books yet, and I haven't paid for AnalystNotes yet, but I will be buying the 99.00 package tomorrow.

I've read through most of the material but I need to start doing exercises and mock exams. Am I starting too late?

Just have a question on study notes... I am a new to this field, so which study material is best fitted. How about CFAinstitute notes?

@ amarmg, CFAinstitute notes are obviously best fitted but i think its a good idea to consult additional notes like schweser or analystnotes notes and do a lot of questions.

I took a break for 20 days and now back studying again. plan to finish FRA in jan.

Rough week for me. Got my results and barely missed Level 1 (Band 10). Level 1 books from CFA will be here Monday. Going with Analyst notes this round as opposed to Schweser. I'll be here for the next 4 months.

I would like to create an online group to study CFA
The group of 5 will be perfect, although I am ready to study with one "partner" as well.
We will need to make a trial meeting on the first week-end and work at a full-scale later on during the next 14 weeks.
The meetings are conducted to:
exchange the test questions on the topic that is under consideration
clarify the issues on the topic
The group will presumably meet online through skype. People are also supposed to have google & googlewave accounts to have access to calendar, word-processing and some other tools.
The meeting will be held at least three hours, perhaps on Saturdays and/or Sundays.
Developing the agenda is obligatory for the group members. During the week the member is preparing for the meeting. The member is expected to provide a list of test questions and answers. The number of such questions is targeted: minimum is defined beforehand.
Each member is supposed to present a set of questions and to ask these questions. Other memebers are supposed to answer the questions, either in writing or orally.
The course study is to be discussed on the first meeting, although the schedule is more or less ready.


The main principles of such studying process are:

test-oriented program, test questions are the main studying instruments
free and interchangeable participation
structured, clear and transparent studying plan
no entry barriers
competiotion is stimulated
usage of new technologies is encouraged


my skype id is viktor.bisovetskyi

If you are interested, please send me a private message by Friday. I will contact contact those of you who are interested, and we will try to schedule a scype meeting on Saturday or Sunday to define clear rules how to organize the studying process.

thanks, Viktor
