          Hello Everyone. I am preparing for CFA and need a study Partner. I have put up my schedule and preferences on StudyPal. It would be great if we could study together. 
          My best wishes.

            for myself while i was studying for the december exam, i decided to start with the topic that posed the most challenge to me (personally it was fixed income as the CFA syllabus was completely different to any sort of bond valuations i was doing at college). but i know alot of people that have started with either ethics&quant or accounting first as they are extremely annoying if you don’t have a great foundation or background in them.
            hope this helps!

              Yep I’d agree that quant should be one of the first topics you cover as later topics rely on some of the material presented there….time value of money, discounted cash flows etc.

                I’d start with Ethics or Quant. These are pretty big ones that the earlier you get familiar with them, the better.

                Dear CFA Candidate,

                First of all, if this message bothers you, please ignore it and I’m very sorry in that case.

                As you and all people who study CFA certainly know, the CFA exams is a very challenging, which costs you a lot of time and effort to pass. So I think you should start learning early as soon as possible. I used to be candidates for CFA exams and thus, I deeply understand how difficult the exams are. After a long journey of hard learning, I and my friends have discovered one secret that help you much easier to learn and approach the CFA exam. It is to use Mind Maps. However, many of us do not have enough time to make our own Mind Maps. Therefore, we’ve already made the Mind Maps for you. The mind maps here are for CFA level 1 exam, which are built based on the up-to-date CFA curriculum and Schweser notes 2015. With them, you can summarize the main points for the first round of learning 10 topics and then for the next rounds, you just need to revise what you have summarized before, so this would be an effective way for you to study CFA. We have made a full set of Mind Maps for 10 topics equivalent to the content for your CFA exam. However, we can also provide one or several separate topics if you think you are just in need of less than 10 topics.

                You can download a free trial version at the link:

                I am also pleased to give you a Free Full Package of 2015 CFA Level 1 Schweser Study NoteBooks and Question Bank​ to help you best prepare for the CFA Exam Level 1 in next June:

                  i went in order starting from quants, and im glad i did since there are a lot of repeat sections as you move through the cirriculam and that kind of just reinforced the knowledge for me. id sprinkle in ethics every day even if its just for 15-20 minutes since its so important
