I have enrolled for CFA level 1. Some of the people I met said that I must have some accountancy background.A little intro about me- I am an Computer Science Engineer who has just completed my degree. I am ok in mathematics. I need your guidance on what should I study before touching my CFA materials. Do I need to do the accountancy subjects. What level of mathematics will be there in CFA. ? Is it really necessary to be that strong in mathematics. If yes ,what chapters I must be thorough with ?.
P.S (Sorry for typos and grammatical mistakes).
Agree with @vincentt; advanced math certainly not necessary but an understanding of general financial accounting concepts would be useful (otherwise expect to spend a bit more time studying areas like financial reporting & analysis)
Hi Spockvroom, I too major in Computing Science, the maths you did in your degree is more than enough for CFA’s maths. I don’t think you will find maths an issue, but maybe subjectives like say accounts, but with more practices you’ll do just fine.
