CFA with old materials

Can I also use the Schweser Notes from 2012 for a later CFA lvl 1 exam or do I have to buy the latest?

I would prepare for the exam during my bachelor's degree (possibly next year) and would not like to spend so much money on the new editions and would rather take the "free" ones from 2012. Are they very different?


Re: CFA with old materials

Yes, they are very different. You should always use the latest ones. Investing so many hours and then getting a chapter that wasn't in the books is too bitter.


Re: CFA with old materials

At this point I would like to ask briefly about the CFA, so are the exams from 1-3 very quantitative?
To be honest, I'm not that strong when it comes to mathematics, is that a big problem or can you compensate for a lot with learning and a lot of time with books and courses?

lvl2 definitely has it all. lvl1 is more of a summary of the bachelor's degree.

@OP: If you have materials that are no more than 1-2 years old, I would use them, but definitely not from 2012.


Re: CFA with old materials

I would not use materials older than 1-2 years OP.
