Good to have you here! Some points to take note:
Cutting to the chase without missing any important part: technically anything that is written in the CFA Institute curriculuem (except for the parts marked ‘optional’) is fair game to be tested. So I can’t really say what is ‘important’ and not. Having said that third party providers have shorter and better-formatted (at least when I took the exam) notes so that may help you on that point.
How many questions will you get asked in the exam from Quant Methods: the weightings are public knowledge, so you can figure out the number from there. Quant Methods is supposedly 12% which is about 29 questions. We have a ton of info on topics here, including what might give you the most trouble: http://www.300hours.com/1/post/2013/02/cfa-results-analysis-topics-you-should-watch-out-for-in-your-own-cfa-level-i.html
I doubt if they will ask you what is the definition of normal distribution: They most certainly could.
Thank you so much for taking your time to answer my questions.
I am combining mixes of strategies to learn better CFAI, Schweser videos, 300hours and I will dig even more.
You are right, you can get tested on any topic hence I am not putting all eggs in one basket.
Were you the one who managed to thrash CFA Level 1,2 and 3 in 18 months? Would like to hear your story and strategy?
