Taking the CFA - less than 2 months to go!

I promised myself a couple of months back that come April, I would start studying my ass off for my CFA test in June. Well it's been April for a week now and I still haven't really started. Hmm. That's not good.

The test is on June 4th this year, and while I have been going to a weekly class every Wednesday after work, the material just doesn't seem to stick until you start doing practice problems. Hopefully I'll be able to get some studying time in this weekend.

For those that aren't sure what I'm talking about, the CFA stands for Chartered Financial Analyst and is awarded by the CFA Institute to those who pass three examinations covering economics, financial accounting, portfolio management, quantitative analysis, security analysis, and ethics. The designation meant for those in the investment management business, although a lot of people in broader finance also study for it.

Here's a link to the CFA program brochure and here's a link for prospective candidates.

If there are any of you who have questions, feel free to email me. I know some of us financial bloggers are going to be taking this test too, best of luck!

Just want to know how good is this course for someone who wants to enter this field with no prior knowledge of finance or auditing.

Hello, I am also taking CFA this June... I have already started to study a month ago. It is so much to study...but if you have solid working experience in investment field, then you must be allright ;)
