      Hello All,

      Been a while since I posted here; however, I am curious to know what the deal is after waiting a good amount of time (about 5 months) since studying any of the CFA, and then studying the level 2. Do you need to remember everything in Level 1? Because, personally I feel like i’ve forgotton a lot. What should I do in order for a review? Should I even do a review? or just dive into level 2? anybody that has experience in taking level 1 in jun and then level 2 a year later? please, advise me on what the best way to start the level 2… do a review or no review and just refer back to level 1 while studying level 2?

      Thanks,

      Zayd

      I just dove in. Didn’t have issues – review as you go along!

      @zee Zee so I was thinking about just reading over the schweser secret sauce for about a week prior to starting… based off what you said, seems like everything i’ve studied will come back as you get back into the groove of studying?

      @Zayd‌ I think reviewing will obviously help. But I don’t think it will be required. If you have extra time / willpower, why not?

      @zayd i’m starting L2 as well – I’m not bothering with reviewing L1, but I have my notes at hand in case I need to refer to them.

      I skipped a year before writing level 2. Might be a nice idea to read through the secret sauce for the previous level but if you’re at all pressed for time I would just skip it. Most prep providers will give you a bit of a refresher if there’s something that carried over from the previous level too (schweser videos for example).

      I didnt review L1 except for some of the QM concepts.  Other than that I just got started with the L2 curriculum
