    I’m just curious how the studying is coming along for everyone and where everyone is at. I just finished study session 6.

    @Maroon5 Looks like we are on the same pace. I’m going to start session 7 later today and hopefully have it finished by Wednesday.

    I’m halfway through 12, using Schweser. I’m just reading through and doing the concept checkers, challenge problems and self tests though. No Q bank yet. Are you guys doing any practice questions beyond the books yet? This L2 material is pretty intense :-/

    @hobojoe, not yet, leaving practice questions till last month where the pain begins. Now I’m just covering materials and doing end-of-chapter questions.

    I’m on Study Session 8 (Corporate Finance), but I skipped Study Session 4 (Econ) as I’m leaving it for the end. For each reading, I’m reading & highlighting CFAI, then reviewing on Schweser (making my notes there), then back to CFAI to do EOC problems. Leaving concept checkers to the last month along with Q-banks and mocks.


    @Maroon5
    , I actually think the last month is where the “fun” begins, not the pain. To me it’s a bit more painful to cover all the ground for the first time: it’s long and a bit stressful in that you need to understand everything, try to lodge it somewhere in your long-term memory, and at the same time move as fast as possible since you need to leave a full month for reviews & practice (can’t really afford to lose a week). My final review of Level 1 a few months ago was the time when I had the most fun, as I was putting all pieces together from the previous readings… lots of “aha” moments.

    @hoboJoe Im currently just reading reading through all the schwesser material and taking comprehensive notes. At my current pace I should be done with all the readings around the end of march. Then I was going to use Apirl to review my notes, EOC questions and do qbank questions. Then May I will be doing mocks and reviewing.

    @Dr_pain28 I was googling “Apirl” thinking it was a new study app, and decided that you probably meant April.

    I just started SS7 tonight so I seem to be on pace with @Dr_pain28 and @Maroon5. I’ve been doing some q bank questions as I go along, 20 question quizzes to keep things fresh. I had my first kid last Wed. So after about 5 days of no studying I’m trying to get back in the groove. Not an easy thing to do with my little girl being all cute.

    Damn, @Dr_Pain28‌ you’ve just verified how far behind I’ve fallen. Looking at my Feb 5 post I was right in line with you but as of last night I just started Fixed Income. I severely underestimated the difficulty of getting study time with a newborn. Thankfully there is still time and I just need to really kick it into high gear. By June 6th my daughter is going to be calling the women of the cover of the CFA L2 books ‘daddy’ haha.

    @mattyc yeah I bet having a newborn would make studying all the more difficult. But keep it up. I’m going to start making study sheets for all the study sessions with formulas and such. I’ll hit you up when i’m done and send you a copy if you want when i’m done.

    Wow that is a very generous offer and I’d be crazy to pass that up. Thanks!
