Hi @TheAchiever, let me clarify as I wrote that article (https://www.300hours.com/articles/what-is-the-most-effective-level-i-cfa-exam-study-session-order).
For the study reference number, it’s helpful to refer to your curriculum, or this summary table (https://www.cfainstitute.org/en/programs/cfa/curriculum/study-sessions).
So for Level 1, I recommended the following order of topics:
1) Study Session 2 –> Readings 6-8 in Quantitative Methods Book
2) Study Session 6-9 –> Readings 19-30 in Financial Reporting & Analysis Book
3) Study Session 14-19 –> Readings 42-57 in Asset Class section
4) Study Session 10-11 –> Readings 31-35 in Corporate Finance book
5) Study Session 3 –> Readings 9-11 in Quantitative Methods Book
6) Study Session 12-13 –> Readings 36-41 in Equity Investments section
7) Study Session 4-5 –> Readings 12-18 in Economics section
8) Study Session 1 –> Readings 1-5 in Ethics book
As to how many pages a day, it really depends on how many days before exams you have, and your available daily commitment to have sufficient time to study and dedicate the 300+hours needed for L1.
I suggest having a study plan to work out your weekly schedule – we have a free study planner you can use. Usually we recommend 6 months before exam to start studying to avoid cramming.
Hope this helps 🙂
