      Hi Everyone,

      I had cleared my CFA level 1 examinations in dec 2016 and due to family commitments I was unable to pursue CFA any further. I want to restart my journey with CFA, any tips on how to get started and prepare for level 2 examinations ?

      Hi @stshriya , impressed with your determination – I’m a L2 candidate too (postponed to Dec). So had to stop and start studying again, same boat in a way! When are you planning to take Level 2?

      I’d say so far the Level 2 material is quite a step up vs Level 1 in terms of sheer volume and crap to remember, so starting early helps (say 7-8 months before if you can, ramping up gradually). Consistency is important, I found it took a while to get back to being disciplined and dedicating a few hours each day to study, once I’ve taken some time off.

      Finally, I’ve found these resources/articles helpful for my L2 prep:
