|Author||Topic: Study strategy for Level 1|
|Hi I am starting today for the December exams. I saw the material provided by cfa and i think its huge. I have decided to enrol for Schweser. But i dont know what to enroll for.. the study notes pack, exam bank or premium pack. Please help.
Could someone pls advise a study strategy for completing all this curriculum by Dec 1st.
|get started ASAFP and plan to study 250hrs MINIMUM for this exam.
you've got 108 exam days left to study, which equates to 2.315 hours a day.
you've got 2757 pages of text to read, which equates to 25.528 pages a day to complete just the readings for the exam.
leave room for at least 3 weeks of intense problem/exam review.
dont' want to discourage, just trying to motivate. get going now.
|AnalystNotes pro package should do the trick - that comes with 10 mock exams and over 6000 questions. printable copies are not necessary IMO.
dont ignore the questions at the back of the CFAi textbooks either. they are quiet tough but cover the concepts well.
heres my study plan in hours for Level 1 (from now until first week of November) based upon the CFA weightings:
Topic Area Hrs total 130
Quantitative Methods 15
Financial Reporting and Analysis 26
Corporate Finance 10
Equity Investments 13
Fixed Income 15
Alternative Investments 4
Portfolio Management and Wealth Planning (total) 6
Ethical and Professional Standards (total) 19
hope this helps and best of luck.
in the last month - questions questions and then more questions!!!
