AuthorTopic: Study question - secondary study materials?
@2019-06-16 10:16:17
I am currently enrolled for the December 2019 CFA Level 1 exam. I am sorry if this has been covered but I did a search and couldn't find any good advice on this topic. I am new to this site so I may have to define my search better.

I am finding that in the textbooks there is a ton of material to cover and I intend to at least read and make some study notes on it all. But how much, if any, did anyone out there who passed the first level rely (heavily) on secondary study material such as AnalystNotes or Schweser.

I appreciate any responses.

You are out of your mind to take on the test just on CFAI provided material. Both AnalystNotes and Schweser provide excellent study aids that can halve the amount of time you spend preparing for the exam.

For me, I did:

Exam 1: CFAI materials = 40%; others = 60%
Exam 2: CFAI materials = 60%; others = 40%
Exam 3: CFAI materials = 70%; others = 30%

The study materials are better now. You can do really well on these exams using only third-party study materials.

Schweser plus AN is a perfect combo for Level 1.

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