      Hey All,

      First post on here. I am taking the level 1 in December and started studying beginning of June. I was wondering how long you should focus on each section. I know that obviously should take into account the weighted percent. My question is rather should I study a section, lets call it stats, until I know it like the back of my hand or get a general knowledge of it and come back to it again? I don’t want to get hung up if I don’t understand a section 100% then be behind on everything. Thanks in advance.

      Assuming your experience is the same as mine: with the weighted percent as a guide, expect to spend a bit more time on FRA in studying. I found alternative investments to be quick to study, but hard to master (lots of time getting questions wrong in practice exams). Ethics also took a long time to go through for me. I would try and stick to a strict time schedule with Ethics, and move on to practice questions if the studying part was taking too long.

      Economics, FRA and Fixed Income take longer. (Speaking outta my own experience)
