      Guys, How many do you have to know off by heart??

      There are many and difficult to say which ones you must be familiar with. A good reference for this is Schwesers exam formula sheet.

      I’m making flash cards for the formulas. I’m going to go through them 2-3 times a day. I think this will help.

      I know a fair few, but I find that a quick read through a day or few before I need them certainly helps. I have diligently copied out each and every one as I have gone through book-by-book into an A5 spiral pad and then grouped them by ‘section’. This seems to have helped.
      Obviously some are harder than others to remember straight off, such as kurtosis vs little ones like current / quick / ROE / etc. But revisiting them enough times should make them all stick eventually.

      Nothing like getting them wrong in practice questions to cement them in my mind!

      i followed the same approach as @Maverick‌ and it certainly helps…read them all every day and you’ll find it impossible to forget them…best part of it all is that you will remember the handwriting for each formula as an HD image in your mind 😆

      Isn’t there a list in the CFA text somewhere? I learned them all. There’s not thaaaat many, and you can learn them in logical groups. Harness the mighty power of the flashcard.

      Is there? I can’t say as I’ve seen that. A conclusive list of all of the formulas would be useful to a degree.

      Hmm, looking back at my revision notes, it looks like I probably photocopied tables from several different pages: Activity ratios, liquidity ratios, solvency ratios, profitability ratios, valuation ratios and credit ratios. It’s not a huge ask to learn them all.
