I have completed Ethics and FRA. Initially was thinking of completing the first 2 readings of quant (readings 5 and 6) and then moving on to Corporate Finance and onwards and then finishing up with the remainder of quant and econ.
However, I figured to ask the 300hours community as what would be a ‘better’ order for better effectiveness of studying.
Given that I have completed Ethics and FRA to date, what do you think of the following order:
Equity –> Derivatives –> Alternative Investments
Quant readings 5-6 (TVM, DCF)
Corporate Finance –> Portfolio Management –> Fixed Income
Remainder of Quant
Am using Elan/Wiley videos to go through the study guides. Find their videos very useful to date (Olinto & Bassit are awesome) and keeps the studying active.
Feedback much appreciated!
We’ve featured an article specifically addressing this: http://www.300hours.com/blog/what-is-the-most-effective-level-i-cfa-exam-study-session-order
Hope this helps inform your study order!
@Stuj79 Totally agree on what you just recommended. Quant forms the basis for other readings too so make sure you are familiar with the quant concepts. Then you can move on to Corporate and Equity section. However, if you are not a fan of economics, remember this segment requires a great deal of time. So make sure you don’t keep it for the end.
