    Hey @sr2014

    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.

    Hi @christine,

    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?

    Cheers

    Hi @Christine. Oops, I will revise that article too just to make it less awkward. I did not expect to get your reply like a bouncing ball. What about you? Are you a CFA charter holder? Share me your story, I am here to listen:)

    No worries @sr2014 – the 300 hours team here are pretty cool about that, and we’re all charterholders. We do answer your questions as soon as we see them!

    Hey Everyone,

    Just completed reading Quantitative Methods(QM).

    If someone has free practice materials for QM and share, I would really appreciate the effort. Plus I would also be interested in hearing how I could help any of you or 300 hours community.

    Many Thanks

    Hey @sr2014‌ , there’s a free question bank by Passed Tense in the 300 Hours Offers section for your level. Wished there was one for L2 though! It has 2,500+ questions apparently, should be more than you need for extra questions!

    Hello @Maroon5,

    Thanks for your reply.

    I have looked into the website and attempted a few questions. It’s good.

    Cheers
