I am sharing attachment , my study plan for june 2016 exams.
Please have a look and share your views if i need to modify or is it correct.

I am a mech enggr with no knowledge in finance. Thats why I have started studying early.
I will be doing readings of whole course twice with help of scheweser and youtube .
for practice questions only i will use original cfa curriculum books.


  • Timing looks good to me. You may need a bit more practice than just CFA curriculum stuff though.
  • It's more interesting to understand how you plan to mix practice problems with reading

    I would highly recommend doing a practice exam after the first read through. Dont spend too much time re-reading unless it is a weakness. Plan on 5 practice exam with time for revision. I like to use the below example:

    he ceramics teacher announced on opening day that he was dividing the class into two groups. All those on the left side of the studio, he said, would be graded solely on the quantity of work they produced, all those on the right solely on its quality. His procedure was simple: on the final day of class he would bring in his bathroom scales and weigh the work of the "quantity" group: fifty pound of pots rated an "A", forty pounds a "B", and so on. Those being graded on "quality", however, needed to produce only one pot - albeit a perfect one - to get an "A".

    Well, came grading time and a curious fact emerged: the works of highest quality were all produced by the group being graded for quantity. It seems that while the "quantity" group was busily churning out piles of work - and learning from their mistakes - the "quality" group had sat theorizing about perfection, and in the end had little more to show for their efforts than grandiose theories and a pile of dead clay.
