hey @hairyfairy I’ve received confirmation that the question bank with BSAS for the 3 previous years of mock exams from BSAS.. so 720 questions. I’ve heard good things as well but hoping for more feedback as to quality of questions.
Hi @chanman201 Thanks for the words of encouragement! It looks like the CFA would definitely boost your credentials in terms of moving into the M&A realm. I know many with your background currently pursuing the CFA as they work in M&A in major public accounting firms. Have you decided if you will pursue this journey as well? I’ll send you a PM so we can further our discussion
After some ‘soul-searching’ I have decided to proceed with level 1 for 2015. Based on my schedule, I will likely attempt level 1 in December of 2015. Ideally it would have been better to give it a go in June 2015 (this may change depending on the next couple of months).
In this ‘soul searching’ process I have been called many things from friends, colleagues and family members. The words told to me included things to do with my sanity and if I had a life other than getting professional titles. Despite this I do know I enjoy learning and value education and at the very least, I can further deepen my knowledge of corporate finance. I also realize that a lot of people around me do not really know what it is to take on such projects and this I understand. Embarking on the CFA process won’t be easy but I am up for the challenge. On to the next discussion board – CFA level 1 prep.
