      Hi!

      I’ve just registered in this forum, I am pretty sure someone asked this before.
      Does this order: https://www.300hours.com/articles/what-is-the-most-effective-level-i-cfa-exam-study-session-order#.WTs2ERMrLMV
      really make sense? Or any order would be good?

      I am starting now, I will try to get some material to study this week, and have already planned my study schedule. I don’t know anything about finance, but eager to learn (freaking out a bit about not knowing anything) 🙂 I am aiming for 320 hours :cold_sweat:

      Definitely not any order, because some topics (like Quant) should be learnt first, otherwise you’ll find it tough to grasp other topics. 

      I’d say either use the article’s recommendation, do them in order, or keep ethics for the end (all other topics in order).

      I did them in order – Ethics was not a good start, so I’d recommend leaving it for later. It was super boring and I think studying other topics might give a bit more context to the Ethics material.

      I never really understood the point of speculating too much about how important the order is. Just blast through it more or less in order, if there are certain topics that you’d rather leave to the end, leave it till the end. 

      Good luck!  🙂

      To piggy back on Daragao’s request, can anyone tell me what is the best way to utilize this forum? What should I be looking for to help with exam prep as I am new to this site too. Thank you very much for any input.
