Good morning from beautiful Arkansas, USA,
Between work, studying (or as I prefer to call it, prep. Sounds a bit less dreary, don't you think?), and personal life there hasn't been a great opportunity to update you all on my CFA journey. Today is day 72 of my 187 day schedule. Day 188 is test day. Let's cut right to the numbers of topics and study sessions covered, practice questions completed (excluding "Concept Checkers"), and my scoring on those questions. I have studied for just shy of 100 hours so far.
Topic (Session#) #'s completed, % score
Ethics (1) 50, 72%
Quant (2) 50, 76%
FRA (7) 28, 71%
FRA (8) 37, 65%
FRA (9) 50, 78%
FRA (10) 25, 80%
Fixed Income (15) 129, 78%
Fixed Income (16) 41, 80%
Equity Investments (14, only readings 48 and 49) 30, 93%
TOTAL: 440 questions, 77%
As you can see, I have worked more practice questions into my routine as I progressed. I now do 15 questions after each reading, then one or two sets of 25 practice questions over the study session as a whole depending on how many Q-bank questions there are. I feel good about my progress so far, the second prep period I have scheduled (the 55 days leading up to the test) will be crucial with completing practice exams, covering areas again, and giving added attention to areas where scores need improvement.
