            Memorizing the formulas is very very helpful and will prove worthwhile through all three levels. Of course, being fast on the calculator is also very helpful.

            We just developed a 9 page formula sheet for Level I. Let me know if you’d like to be a free beta tester of a PDF version of it. So far our feedback is that its the best one available, being the most comprehensive and yet not overwhelmingly long. 

            We have a free 15 minute calculator guide as well: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ehchb6Zvag0

            Hope that helps!

              Hello Everyone. I am preparing for CFA and need a study Partner. I have put up my schedule and preferences on StudyPal. It would be great if we could study together. 
              My best wishes.

                  @paulpassedtense I like the looks of the L1 material, any Level 3 products for beta testing yet???

                  We’re in development with Level 2 and 3. Level 2 should be out late spring and level 3 either this summer or next fall. Both will be free betas of Adapt, our exam engine. Sorry, no level 3 before the June exam šŸ˜

                    The best way to pass the test is to know the material beyond memorization tactics.  Definitely spend time familiarizing yourself with how to use the calculator and the shortcuts it can afford.  Certain formulas like TVM or NPV I would say focus more on the calc but other topic require an understanding of the formula in order to correctly input the data into the calc.  Most equations fall under the latter IMO.
