For nearly 2 months, I have been studying for the “CFA”:http://www.investopedia.com/articles/analyst/060302.asp Level I exam this June. My physicist friends might laugh or call me Judas (yes, you, PB) but this stuff is actually quite fun. My previous exposure to economics were more “Steven Levitt”:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Steven_Levitt than “John Maynard Keynes,”:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Keynes but I found the fundamentals quite interesting. And I’m learning things I wish I already knew. Economics, Accounting, and Investment Analysis.
But from zero background to CFA exam in 5 month is no stroll in the park. If not for the “intro course”:http://fs-academy.com/cfa-course-offerings at “FSA”:http://fs-academy.com I would have plan for a year study on my own. It’s gonna be a real coup if I pull it off first time.
At least it’s easier than me joining the _other_ “CFA.”:www.cfa.org
