Hi Mate
The thing is previously CFA used to sell entire book even though you want to write some level of entire CFA levels. Now they have changed i mean according to the level of the exam you want to go for they sell that level only .

hi guys, i was just wondering on the amount of time required to study for CFA lvl. Intending to register for the Dec 2010 one if there's sufficient time in preparing for it.

just finished degree in ACCOUNTANCY, ntu so everything still kinda fresh. i shld think that banking and finance degree more relevant to CFA but was just wondering if the lvl of knowledge i have now is sufficient in preparing for CFA within this few months in order to PASS it.

coz i understand from some posts that lvl 1 is basically a summary of finance degree plus abit more.

also, a previous post said something bout having to have working exp in finance industry, etc. Just wondering would audit in big 4 be qualified as such?
