@ravivooda, is your plan to start studying right away and some time later, when you have the money saved up, to register formally? If it is Level 1, then there are many exam prep providers who offer prep material, so you could shop around and get one of those at a reasonable price to help you start your studies? Of course, I’m not sure if the exam prep providers want you to show proof of being a CFA candidate before they sell to you. Or you could download the free ‘Standards of Professional Conduct and Code of Ethics’ readings for L1 and make a start on them.
Another resource I can think of is the Investopedia website’s sections on CFA. I don’t know how current the material is, but it could be something to begin with?
Hi Guys, I have registered for L3. But the most disappointing part I felt was that now the CFAI charges $150 for print curriculum. Now e-book we will be getting as part of the package and we will not be able to select an option (e-book or print). I think this is unfair. But what to do!! no choice other than to shell out another $150. This is what they replied to me.
Thank you for contacting us about the June 2014 registration. The Ebook is now a standard mandatory addition to the registration costs, and offered at a discount to the public purchase price of $150 USD. We offer the print curriculum as an additional purchase for a $150 USD amount, and that functionality is now operable on the website under “Candidate Resources” for registered candidates. Please note that this link may take a few hours to appear in your account after registration. You may also call us at +1 (434) 951-5499 to place your order over the phone with a representative.
Hi @RaviVooda, yes that’s correct. I used the e-book for Levels 1 and 2, for Level 3 I decided to spend the extra on the print books in order to spare my eyes. Decide if you can manage with only the e-book — one of my friends had an iPad (there is a good Vitalsource app for iOS) so he would read the material on it. Since I didn’t have an iPad and didn’t want to buy one solely for the e-books, therefore I bought the print books instead.
If you are able to use your office printer, then you can go with the e-book and print out pages as required.
