So I've signed up for the June 2012 CFA Level 1 exam. The CFA Institute sent me six
very thick and dense textbooks (which were required to be purchased upon registration). I also ordered the Schweser Essential Study
package, which I expected to be much smaller and another box of six
textbooks landed on my doorstep today. This seems a little overwhelming at the moment so for those of you who have taken this exam, could you please offer your tips and hints so that I can (hopefully) be one of the only 38% who pass?
I have worked in the financial industry for several years and I took a very similar exam in the UK, which covered all the same topic matter, but probably didn't go into as much depth as the CFA, so I'm not going into this blind.
Any tips are much appreciated. Thanks.
