hi, albertini and lyl9972,

I am studying for the Level 1 exam on Dec 05 too. I've taken the Home Study package, because, as you pointed out, it is really hefty fees for their teaching courses.

I'd have the interest to form a study group. Drop me an email.


thanks.

Hi Kimi,

I heard that you should try to use the current notes as they change some stuff every year. Not sure if it's advisable to use old notes.

cheers

Hi, for those of you who have signed up for your CFA DEC 05 exams, can I just confirm that we have to sign up through the CFAinstitute website right? And not through some educational institution in Singapore?

Anyway, from what I have read, the Schweser Study Notes are good for those who have done their undergraduate in Finance or business but still better to maybe purchase books in the sections you are not well versed in.. I know I will have to buck up on the Financial Statement Analysis section as according to the CBOK guidelines, you need to have either a basic or advanced understanding of Financial Accounting to do well in these section.. FSA also holds the most weightage in the exams..

Anyone else have any other tips to share..Most threads that I have seen based on the CFA is on previous years...So it will be good for us sitting the DEC 05 exams to discuss our concerns...

Anywya, I hope someone can be nice enough to answer my question at the top..:)

Thanks
