Hey everyone! I have signed up for the CFA Level 1 exam, December 2014. I am using the Schweser Notes for preparation and shall read the CFAI books for the EOC, blue box and any other concepts that I couldn't understand from Schweser. I am working- full-time, so I can allot approx 20 hours per week for my CFA Level 1 Prep. I signed up on 19th August. (yep, right before the end of the 2nd deadline). Since then, I've covered Reading 5,6 and 7 in Quant.
I started making flashcards, using my laptop, for Reading 8 (Quant) - Statistical Concepts and Market Returns. Now I found this method to be very effective, but sadly it's extremely time consuming. There are only 3 months to go, and I am done with only 3 readings!
Also, I don't have enough funds to purchase ready-made flashcards.
So any advice on:
1. To make flashcards or ditch the idea completely?
2. Any specific subjects of the ten in which you guys found flash cards to be extremely effective?
3. Any other strategies you guys could suggest for quick reading,retention and recall?
Thanks a ton,
