|Author||Topic: What's new in CFA Level I,June,2007 exam|
any idea about whats new in June,2007 level I exam of CFA as compared to last year.
|I also want to know!
Could anybody tell us the difference between 06 and 07? which topic is added and which topic is out of syllabus? So that I can borrow my fd's notes and just focus on those topics! There is no more time for us to read whole set of notes from the begining.
Thanks a lot!
|i am interested as well. Anyone? I am also looking for breakdown of how much of exam will be focused on what section like Econ will be 10% or something. Thanks.|
|I too would like to know. This would be of great help.
Level 1 - 2007 Curriculum Changes:
As always, the Level 1 curriculum has changed significantly for the coming year. The rearrangement and rewriting of the learning outcome statements (LOS) has been extensive; dozens of new LOS have been added, and some old LOS have been deleted. Additionally, 25 new readings have been added, while others have been dropped. The following changes to the 2007 Level 1 curriculum represent a formidable challenge to Level 1 candidates.
Ethical and Professional Standards
The recommended procedures for compliance with the Standards of Practice are now required knowledge for Level 1 candidates
New GIPSŪ LOS
Many LOS have been reworded and a significant number have been moved to Level 2
The Economics text has been changed. All of the readings for Microeconomics and Macroeconomics are new, as are the LOS
Two readings for International Economics have been replaced with new material
The majority of the LOS are completely new
Financial Statement Analysis
There is one new reading and six new LOS in Financial Statement Analysis
The readings are new and cover 26 new LOS
The Corporate Governance and related LOS have been added to Corporate Finance
There are two new readings
There are eleven new LOS and many that have been changed or reworded
This study session has only one new LOS!
43 days to go, good luck to everyone.
you can find the study session breakdown in the CFA Institute's webpage
FSA + Corp finance 28%
Portfolio mgt 5%
Asset valuation 30%
as you know that the exam is two sets of 120 questions, you can work out the time per question
and number of question per topic.
I divided nb of question/topic by the nb of LOS, this gives a good idea of the topics importance (revision time)
I'm not posting my findings as I still don't know if I'm in the right direction.
answer in 43 days
|Thanks Pierre-Alain. It is very helpful.|
|So invariably pierreR14 i might as well abandon my 2006 notes and get the 2007 ones or what?
