      Great article. As someone ingrained with the idea that “perfect practice makes perfect,” I wholly support the idea that we not only have to study hard, but also study smart. I’ve recently been looking into the teachings of Scott H Young on ideas to study more efficiently as I get ready for my level II retake and would highly encourage others to learn more about other ways of studying besides the typical rote memorization.

      Wow that makes perfect sense. I always feel like I study better during the week than on weekends. I try only have 1-2 hours to spare on weekdays and then I try to pull an Alan on weekends. I’ll definitely be changing up my weekend study habits.

      Thanks for sharing the tips. Actually, in my case they wasn’t very helpful, maybe because I’m a super slow reader… No matter how long my study sessions are, it takes me 1 hour to read and understand 6-7 pages of the CFA curriculum. I tried to study 4 hours in a row and doing breaks every hour – results are the same. But perhaps my retention is better when I split my studies with breaks.
