|Author||Topic: Time to speed up Fixed Income|
|As 102 left till the exam I found it reasonable to speed up, especially that I have not read the CFAI books even once ( I read AnalystNotes once). I am currently by FI, bond... although it’s one of the most interesting parts, I found many points in the books, which are not examinable, like spread/margin measures for floating-rate securities…do you have same impression it’s better to skip such parts?
Anybody has a comparison list, which items skip vs LOS?
|everything and anything can be tested... study it all. I’m on FI as well, and while I admit it is not as ‘sexy’ as other chapters and quite boring, I think this will be my weak point so I am very focused on hammering the concepts.|
|My advice is to study everything and skip nothing. Read clearly the LOS to see what is testable. Although some topics are less popular than others, I would not skip them - at least read them once!|

I passed! I did not get a chance to tell you before the exam - but your site was excellent. I will definitely take it next year for Level II.
