Will passing the Level 1 of the CFA exam significantly help make the case for a move from audit to TAS/FDD (either internally or externally)? I’m willing to take it but only if it will help the move.

Studying for far. I just completed chapter 3( very low on McQueen, but went through it) My goal is to finish the rest of the chapters within the next 10 days. And then revise properly for the next three weeks. Planning to take the test mid august and I am all tax, working full time. I know nothing about accounting. Do you think it’s enough time? Also how do you memorize everything, it’s so much!
