AuthorTopic: Topics not in a LOS
@2018-06-22 22:38:15
I've noticed a re-occuring theme in the CFA texts where topics are described in good detail but are nowhere to be found in a LOS.

The pages I've referenced here discuss calculating accrued interest and determining the number of days in between settlement and coupon payment. Should i assume this is a questionable material?

Another topic that comes to mind which was not included in a LOS was the discussion of leveraging the beta, which was discussed in great detail and many of the questions at the end of reading were devoted to it as well.

If anyone has any other topics that mysteriously cannot be found in a LOS, please post. I tend the to read the LOS and then find the specific material. It would be helpful to be aware of other topics I have overlooked that do not have a LOS.

there was a lot of talk coming up to last june as to whether or not the pure play method will be covered on the exam b/c of how much attention it receives in one of the corp finance readings... i didn't bother memorizing it since it's not in the los, and it wasn't tested on the exam. i am fairly certain that anything which isn't stated or implied in the los shouldn't be tested on the exam, and in my opinion you don't need to spend a lot of time on it.

I have also noticed this problem and it is extremely frustrating. I am having difficulty interpreting the LOS! One example I came across tonight... Corp Fin. reading 45, several tricky pages about calculating Beta, but nothing about it in LOS. I skipped the buggers.
