      I’ve been dreaming in multiple choice…

      I’m just waiting for a man to appear to me in my dreams and make three statements about FRAs, and then ask me which one is least accurate 🙂

      You know you’ve been studying too long when… You start calculating the probability of randomly selecting a blueberry nutragrain bar from the snack jar

      You know you’ve been studying too long when you wake up every single day in the last month muttering some random CFA topic and mentally patting yourself for getting it right.

      You know you’ve been studying CFA for too long when even life after CFA exams you’re still talking about it 😉

      I noticed last year just after the exam I spent an inordinate amount of time on CFA related forums, I think it was because I needed to fill the CFA gap!

      I’ve been dreaming about work for many weeks now. Not CFA of course, but still, I can somewhat relate….

      Also, dreaming that you’re trapped in an Excel cell might signify you’re doing a bit too much Excel work.

      @mattyc
      Or calculating the probability of passing the CFA exams purely by randomly selecting answers – @diya got me going on that.

      You know you’ve been studying too hard when you are introduced to potential future candidates to tell them about how great pursuing the CFA charter is…and you go on to say how your only friends are books, your LIVING friends have abandoned you, I HOPE your significant other needs a 300 hour break from being with you, and I’d be more than happy to explain how well I have been able to cope with the excessive amounts of failure and self-pity this exam injects into my soul. 🙂 So… I think you should shoot for December kthxbai
