Actually some China website like cfaspace.com super helpful for CFA study.

My strategies for CFA (From a person who scored near >70% for CFA 1,2,3 and cleared the 3 papers in one shot):
CFA L1: Attempt all of Schweser Qbank+past year paper. Make sure you know what you are doing. Understand the concept not memories the concept.
CFA L2: Attempt all of Schweser Qbank+past year paper.
CFA L3: Have superb time management. Most candidates fail because they cannot finish the paper.

CFA Level 1 Study Group

Hello friends it's been very informative reading this thread and I had visited Kaplan 2 weeks ago to enquire about the CFA classes.

I think self study would be the pretty much the most efficient, effective and economical way to go?

And I concur with the idea of a regularly study group to increase the chance of passing! (:

I'd like to start the group for CFA level 1 sitting and invite those who're interested to join?

https://www.facebook.com/groups/149015195207723/

Let's get something started asap... 300 hours of study time to expend!

Cheers,
Brian
