    Early birds @Sarah @RaviVooda @alta12! 🙂

    Planning ahead is great move though, but pace yourself and remember it’s a marathon, not a sprint, and you’ll be fine!

    Most people start in January – although a good portion start in Nov. Sept is pretty early! 😉

    I may kick off ethics next weekend. With heavy work commitment and an upcoming overseas trip, I have to factor these in.

    I also have a heavy work commitment so I need to start early plus this time around I need a social life.

    I’m not used to having so much this between exams.

    @sherlock ditto; sure I am going to forget everything unrelated to work (not that I ever seemed to pick any of that up) and then there’s the endless musical chairs of fiddling around with the syllabus for each level every year.

    I wouldn’t start any hard studying too early as it might put a strain on your ‘memory retention’ abilities but it’s ultimately up to you.

    You can definitely start some light reading to familiarize yourself with what’s to come.

    If you do decide to start early, a study plan would definitely be a MUST. And lots of constant revision to ensure you don’t forget what you have learnt in reading 1 by the time you hit reading 10. For me, what works is to revise previous topics before I start a new one. With all the constant revision, it will become anchored in some part of your brain and even if you don’t know its there, its actually there.

    Write down a summary notes. (handwritten preferably), its the best way to revise any subject faster.

    I have started on ethics, just want to get that out of the way (before my post Level II holiday). The content for reading 1 and 2 seem to be same as Level II?

    Don’t worry guys. Yes, I have a study plan 🙂

    Officially going to start studying for CFAL2 (Cease FunActivitiessquared 😀
    My biggest mistake was consistency of study working full-time, would do 5 hours one day and 20 minutes the next day if I was tired… Definitely starting early and sticking to regimen should help. Btw, anyone know the date schweser releases the ’14 study guides?

    There are several readings which are identical between L1 and L2. In 2012 the first corporate finance SSs were identical to prior L1 readings.

    I think with the ethics you may find some of the examples are different. Also slightly further on there is more emphasis on brokerage.

    My hard-copy LIII books arrived today – always used Schweser and e-books in the past. Genuinly taken aback at the outstandingly poor printing and binding quality, basically some glued together leaves of smudged toilet paper; well-worth $150, sorry $170, of anybody’s money clearly…

    Yeah, I’m starting now, for June as well. Got no choice, I’ve a five week old little girl on my lap as I write. I’ll need a few extra weeks as she takes up a fair chunk of my day.
