I had a dream last night that it was results day, but mine was sent to someone else and he just wouldn't let me know, and the CFA Institute said 'there was nothing they could do'.
Most of my dream was me trying to email and phone this person trying…
Also what are your thoughts on skipping/doing less effort on those topics where the weightings are low in the exam but the difficulty is hard. I think one of it was portfolio management? I plan to skip those when I ran out o…
Will Shweser's essentials cover everything in the exam without me having to buy the CFA curriculum books from the CFA?
You get the CFA curriculum included with registration (e-version), so you don't need to buy it unless yo…
Hi All, I'm Anggi and totally overwhelm with CFA Level 1 materials! Even finding the Ask Question here is overwhelming me.
I plan to join the Dec 2018 exam, previously June 18, but as time goes by, so does my confidence.
This material is not beyond me. If I am to not pass again, I argue it is primarily because of my own anxiety and not knowledge based.
Based on what you've said, I'll go ahead and conclude that increasing your confid…
I had the same problem. In my case it was an account error, just call/email the vitalsource people and they'll correct it in a few days. If you're using the download software, also make sure you update it, otherwise they'll just ask you to update it…
Here you go:
Y = 4500/P + 625 + 87.5[(5821.43-Y)/28.57]
Y = 4500/P + 625 + 17829.02 - 3.06Y
4.06Y = 4500/P + 18454.02
Y = 1108.4/P + 4545.3
I know it's not exactly the answer you provided but given rounding error it's close enough.
I can't speak from experience because I haven't taken the Level 3 exam yet (I just registered), but I personally like paper better. I ended up getting the CFAI paper books and I find them practical for situations where…
I've been eyeing them as well - they do look good. But terribly expensive compared to self-study, and I'm not sure if the video format is 100% for me. I'm waiting to hear back if my company will pay for my fees, and if they agree, I'll be getting Le…
Wanted to chip in - I followed the advice here but instead of giving up coffee I switched to decaf and switched back to the active stuff as needed. Can confirm that it definitely works - I can summon up a good, driven day at will!
Also in the news …
Is it essential to read up on all this or is the core material (CFA institute books or Schweser) enough? Appreciate the book recommendations but this thread is making me a bit unsure on what is needed and what is extra.
