AuthorTopic: Weightings for time spent on CFAI Texts
@2016-05-09 13:22:19
The weights below can be applied to the amount of time you plan to study for the level 1 exam, I believe example number 2 contains the best set of weights, the weights were determined by the exact workload in the CFAI texts.

The final numbers below were put together per each CFAI volume. Note - per the CFAI 2015 Texts it?s interesting that the Econ volume #2 has the larger workload versus FSA and Equity/Fixed. I believe the weakest weighting is Weight by Exam Topic...way too much time spent on Ethics and Quant not enough on Econ. There are many more problems in the 2015 Econ Volume?

Weight by Exam Topic
Ethics and Quant 0.2700
Econ 0.1000
FSA 0.2000
CF and PM 0.1300
Equity and Fixed 0.2200
Der and Alt 0.0800

Weights by exact Workload (number of reading pages/examples/EOC problems)

Ethics and Quant 0.2000
Econ 0.1944
FSA 0.1920
CF and PM 0.1403
Equity and Fixed 0.1930
Der and Alt 0.0782

Weights by Readings per Volume
Ethics and Quant 0.1791
Econ 0.1343
FSA 0.2090
CF and PM 0.1642
Equity and Fixed 0.1940
Der and Alt 0.1194
