To start with I will talk about things that are not in the CFA L1 and FRM L1 exams, which are:
  • Bloomberg terminal interpretation (Need to understand the screen).
  • Investment Banking questions (synergy,leverage buyout and IPO not covered in so much details in CFA).
  • News Interpretation of Bond Markets (names of US based bonds, in general credit risk is a famous area to understand yields and spreads).
  • Practical Questions on Financial Markets.
  • 30 questions on financial markets (Referring to FRM FMP) is the largest area.
  • 30% as per me observation of 2 files are from Equity (CFA level 1 and level 2).

 

Proposed Strategy:
    1. Go through CFA L1 Eco and FSA and link all questions to here.
    2. Go through a little bit of Foundation of Risk management of FRM exam.
    3. Go through E-books of B. terminal.
    4. Investment Banking Books and simple questions.
Eco, FSA, Equity and Corporate Finance CFA Level 1 & 2 should be the first step.
Important suggestions regarding strategy:
  1. Economics is one thing where you need to focus a lot, this subject is also tricky in CFA Level 1.
  2. Analytical reasoning is required especially for Quant ideas, I will revise the questions. Especially arranging things to specific heads and professionals. for these question you need to see the CAT or AIMCAT.
  3. Corporate valuation in equity 1 and 2.
  4. Economics and Investment banking are the most sought of and most loved subject hence they become high scoring. Also there are most taught at IIMs and investment management and finance markets are less taught.
  5. Do all what you know first.
