CFA Level 1 Preparation: Kaplan vs CFA Singapore vs Self-Study
 
hi all,

care to give your comments and comparison for the above? thanks!

If you're discipline, self study.
If you have relevant background, self study.
If you're not discipline but have relevant background and they are still fresh, self-study.

There can be lots more combination which you need to tell us before we can narrow it down for you.

One general comment is that if you have finance background, almost 50% of the level 1 materials are just refresher.

thanks.. hmmm... sounds like level 1 self-study ok but so far see like many failed...

was thinking in terms of materials, lessons and time management.. like schweser vs stalla, frequency of classes, etc.

anyway have just signed up with cfa singapore, lessons mostly on sat mornings, more manageable for me.

i have a degree in finance/ postgrad in relevant field. i did self-study for level 1 while doing my degree. No problem but must be disciplined.

is it true that for level 1 CFA, you don't need a degree to take the course right?
