Is anyone studying for the CFA exam right now? (Which now takes place in Dec instead of June). I’ve totally lost my motivation and wanted my refund instead.

Motivation is to get out of audit.


Waiting until at least July or August to start back up again for L2


Thinking about it. Going to take the cowards route and go study for the ABV though.

Sure, happy to be of help

Yes. What level are you studying for? I’m at 3 so I’m def tryna close this out

Based on your most recent comment, I doubt you need to advance. Level 1 vs the full charter won’t make much difference. I had to do this in order to pivot careers (got a new job in November after having 1 & 2 under my belt)


Chick Fil A has tests? Shit.

Also I’m trying to exit to corp development/strategic planning roles at industry - will they need CFA for that? I already have an MBA

Very helpful! Thank you!
