Given our new “View All Articles” section, the 300 Hours team have been doing quite some reorganisation to the website to make sure older posts are easier to find and more accessible.
Going through them for the past month, I thought I’d share my favourite compilation of posts that are super useful for your CFA studies, with a little caveat – I can only select 3 per category. Not easy nor clearcut given all the awesome blog posts we have so far, but nevertheless a good start to get the ball rolling to see what your thoughts are. So here goes!
That said, “Sh*t People Say (to CFA Candidates)” comes as a close second, and gives you a warm fuzzy feeling to know that you’re not the only one feeling slightly frustrated when the rest of the world don’t get what you’re up to during revision.
Finally, “15 Things We Love to Hate about CFA Exams” summarises perfectly how we all feel in the midst of our endless revision sessions.
However, I found these 3 posts instrumental in helping potential candidates to find the right answer:
- “Thinking about the CFA Exams? These 7 Steps Will Helps You Decide” – the title says it all!
- Christine puts forward her view on whether the CFA Charter is worth it?
- Finally, the inevitable pros and cons list of CFA vs. MBA. Another interesting discussion with the active community on whether MBA is a worthy investment.
- CFA Results Analysis – A tool I wished I had when I took the CFA exams 5 years ago. I went in blind without any preparation or inside knowledge of where candidates tend to stumble, and had to do it the hard way. You now have a little nice report that tells you all the pitfalls and how to prepare for them for the CFA exams, this $15 is the best return for your investment. Ever. And I’m not just saying that just because it’s done by 300 Hours team, we decided to do this extensive report so that you don’t fight the exam in the dark.
- Tailor make your own study plan for FREE – The easiest way to keep track of your studies and create a plan that suits your time and obligation while making sure you have sufficient time to complete your studies and do your practice exams. This 300 Hours study plan tool, inspired by our helpful community member @Dan.
- The-last-month-before-exams grand plan – In your CFA exam preparations, the last month prior to the exams are crucial, if not the most important. Here’s where you’ve finished studying the materials and are dedicating this last month to practice exams and final revision. We tell you what you should be doing here to maximise your pass rates.
- With that, you should always know how to maximise your CFA status on your CV and LinkedIn;
- Know how to write a killer CV that gets you the job;
- And more importantly, know how to get promoted at work.
