    Well, my initial study plan blew up and I’ve had to push everything waaaay back – I’m only now just starting to study… Since I have a full-time job, this will pretty ridiculous if I can pull it off. If any of you are worried about your pace just remember that you’re much better off than me!

    I built a gruelling schedule – wish me luck!

    Good luck @gunnersaurus! It’s good to see a can-do attitude, and check in every now and then! 🙂

    well, it’s not pretty, @wjrucker, haha

    I basically do 2-3 hours every weeknight and spend the whole weekend studying, and I mean the WHOLE weekend. (I try to put about 10 solid hours per day.)

    Hmm, what else. Holidays are treated as weekend days and when it gets busy at work, I switch to morning study sessions instead of at night.

    What does yours look like? Hopefully it’s more sane than mine!

    @Gunnersauras I didn’t start studying until about the same time, and didn’t really pick up the pace until end of March tbh, and I passed so it’s very doable.

    I just registered for Level 1 exam today. Don’t have a plan of study yet.

    My background – masters of mathematics, work in a software development team (for an inv consultancy). So no finance background basically!

    I should point out that my firm did pay for 7city/fitch saturday classes for me. Also, I used Schewser books for everything except ethics, I think.

    If you put in the hours, it’s doable! I would recommend doing as many questions as you can.
