      I m taking the CFA Level 1 Dec exam and going for the Schweser notes. Should I order the printed material (pretty costly considering I am in Europe) or online version is also user friendly?

      Many thanks

      I haven’t looked into the Schweser notes yet but I usually like printed ones. They are all expensive unfortunately. I am taking Level I in December as well. I was wondering do you know any pre-Level I book to familiarize myself with finance? I am switching from my Engineering bachelors degree and I feel like I need an intro book.

      Greetings,

      I started studying with the online version of the CFA Institute Curriculum and some 2013 pdf’s from Schweser that I found online. Reading from my laptop was hard for me. I got tired and it took me about a month to finish Econ and Quants. ( I have an Economics Degree and a Msc in Applied Economic- I knew this stuff).
      I live in Europe(Greece) and have in mind that I had to pay 100 euro for customs clearance in order to get my Kaplan Schweser pack that I ordered.
      I don’t regret , cause it has made my study a lot easier, but have in mind you might have to pay an additional cost.

      Good luck!

      @GeorgeKop‌ Do you know if there is any difference between the 2013 Level I curriculum and the 2014 Level I curriculum?

      @nav http://www.elansguides.com/docs/Los-changes-2013-2014.pdf
      Its’ a pdf for all the LOS changes from 2013 to 2014.If you google it you may find more detail.

      Fixed Income area changed a lot.
      There are chapters unaffected , you can start from there if you have last year’s Curriculum.
