CFA given material vs schweser Notes
« on: August 29, 2009, 05:02 AM »
Hi All,

i would like to ask a question here, i had downloaded the schweser notes and also i have the Cfa preparation books along. I seem to notice that for the level 1, there is some parts that were not discussed thoroughly in the schweser notes, but elaborated more in the cfa prep book.my question would be, which should i use? the cfa prep books or the schweser notes, and most of u who have succeeded the exam and gonna do it would be able to help me alot.

many Thanks
Dannies

Hey Dannies,
Well ill let you know from my experiance, i only studied Fixed Income and Partly Alternative Investments from the CFA curriculum. The rest i studied from schweser, yeah JUST schweser. But again its MCQ based so you tend to forget stuff. I went through the schweser notes atleast 3 times and used the CFA curriculum for stuff which i couldnt understand properly. So basically i used the Schweser notes and help from the curriculum when something was not clear. And remember DO PRACTICE QUESITONS!! me and a friend sat for the level 1 and he couldnt clear the exam coz he didnt practice questions. Use the schweser question bank and the CFA mock/sample exams.

Hope this helps
Ammar

Hello. Thanks for the tip. I have been trying to download schweser audio CD 2 for the CFA level 1 exams from the links I got here (share term papers) but have been unable to (kept getting an 'invalid link/item had been removed' message). Does anyone have it? Can anyone help please?

Many thanks

Hello T. Please do you have audio or video CDs of the Schweser 2008 or 2009 CFA notes. If not what do you have please? Kindly reply.
