I have not studied anything related to CA so cannot comment on it. But in my opinion, CFA includes more of accounting wherehas in CA Tax is given greater importance. This is what people tell me. Please correct me if I am wrong here.

Well you should not follow the study habits I followed. I cleared CFA L1 in December 2011 - results of which came out in Jan 2012. I did not register for L2 straight away because of several reasons (general laziness/not sure whether I will be able to prepare or not).

I have read Equity book. I am almost done with FRA (will be able to read it atleast once by this week). The problem is I do not remember anything. I have understood the concept but I do not remember all the formulas. FRA is damn tough - Only the tough parts of L1 have been carried over to L2. I r...

Just wanted to know whether you have already started preparing or will be starting from March 14? I am also a late comer and have just started preparing. Just wanted to know how you are preparing given such a short span of time. I have started with Equity from Schweser. After that I am planning t...

Thanks a lot bro! I really appreciate you writing this! It would actually be stupid now to doubt my decision after registering for it. Now what I can do is focus on strategy and stick to it, which is the right thing to do.
