Does anyone else think that the actual material appears a lot easier than previous levels? I know the hard part will be answering the essay questions and remembering enough info to do this, but I seem to be reading through material a lot quicker/easier than previous levels.
Anyone else found this?
@jimmyg mentioned this earlier as well in another thread (http://forum.300hours.com/discussion/21/hows-everyones-progress/p1)
I personally found it easier too – in terms of content, but the format of the exam is the challenging part of Level 3.
We also discussed Level 3 nuances here: http://forum.300hours.com/discussion/63/useful-links-from-analyst-forum#latest
@jimmyg same here. I guess its more practical since we’re seeing the portfolio management side of things in all the topics. You can always go through the books after the exam at your own pace to enjoy the readings 😉 . Or you can also order one of those CFA publication books that deal with each topic areas covered in the curriculum. They’re more like reference books. http://www.cfapubs.org/page/books
I’m at Alternative Investments at the moment – and it’s so much better than Level 2! Very portfolio management focused.
There is a risk I may be taking Level 3 a little too easily here. I feel like I’m enjoying the readings TOO much.
I’ve just finished alternative investments. Just been working through the next session on risk management. Agree, the lack of formulas does make it appear easy, although I’m sure the real of the minutiae will be the hard part!
