AuthorTopic: Order of Topics - An Unconventional Approach
@2017-04-17 04:16:33
I'm thinking of breaking up some of the CFAI study sessions to make my studying more interesting (so i don?t get too bored with one topic) and to ensure that I spend enough time on FRA & Ethics. I have no background in accounting or finance, but I?ve taken several intermediate and upper-level economics courses. One blog (konvexity) recommends the following schedule:

FRA (5 days)
Quant & Corporate Finance ( 5 days)
Equity (5 days)
Fixed Income (7 days)
Quantitative Methods: Application (4 days)
Derivatives (6 days)
Economics (8 days)
FRA (5 days)
Portfolio Management (3 days)
Alternative Investments (1 day)
Ethics & Professional Standards (1 hr daily)

At the end of 49 days, rest & revisit weak areas & reread ethics (11 days)

Final Revision & Mock exams (20 days)

What do you guys think? The only problem I see is doing econ at the end because having a good foundation in microeconomic theory should help with understanding financial concepts (time value of money, discount rates, opportunity cost, etc)
