|Author||Topic: Review one topic at a time or all at once?|
|There's 2 choices here:
1) go over one section over and over until you fully understand it, and then not really review it very much until a couple days before the test
2) keep going over the entire curriculum (via Q-bank tests, etc.) every day
If anybody knows which method is better (would prefer a scientific response to this!) I would be thrilled.
It seems like when I do the 2nd choice I keep learning the same things over and over because I keep forgetting, but I just have a hard time spending an entire day on a single topic and never brushing over the others.
|Sorry, no scientific response for you, but I can tell you what my plan is. For the first run through I'm going over everything lightly and alternating between the CFAI texts and AnalystNotes. When I start to get bored with one section I'll move on to something else that is a bit different, so if problems start to get boring I'll move on to Econ. When I finish a section I'm starting with the AN review questions and then I go over not only the wrong answers but also the right answers to make sure my reasoning was correct and that I wasn't just lucky.
The initial run through I'm hoping will be pretty quick, and then after getting a better feel for the topics I'm going to go back and do each section more in-depth, and do the questions at the end of the CFAI chapters (and probably re-do the AN review questions again).
CFA Discussion Topic: Review one topic at a time or all at once?
I just wanted to share the good news that I passed CFA Level I!!! Thank you for your help - I think the online question bank helped cut the clutter and made a positive difference.
