There is the CFAI Curriculum. Then there is the Kaplan Schweser products. Then there is the Elan Guides and Stalla and others. In Schweser, there is Schweser videos, notes, audio notes and Secret Sauce. What on earth am I to study from primarily and then secondarily if any? and why?
What I have been doing is Going though the Secret Sauce first, then going to a university CFA prep class, next reading the Schweser Notes immediately after class and then hammering questions from then on. If I come across one I can't do, I would then go to the CFAI Curriculum to find the answer to it.
Please be kind and explain the method you used and if you used a different method, why you used it instead of what I do.
Answers from Level 2 candidates, Level 3 Candidates, Level 3 passed finalists and Charter holders only please. Basically, anyone who have passed at least one CFA exam.
Should I replace the Schweser Notes phase with the CFAI Curriculum? Because I can change to it with minimal opportunity cost. However, the Schweser's books seams advantageous being it that they are a condensed version of the CFAI Curriculum.
