Thanks a lot for starting this thread....
Hii,

I am currently in 4th year doing my Btech. I am also doing my final semester internship in an IT company. Till June I will be involved with this company.



I read in wikipedia requirements..

"or having four years of qualified, professional work experience in an investment decision-making process."


My question is whether or not I can pursue CFA.


Eligibility for CFA Level-I
Before you enroll in the CFA Program and register for your first exam:

Meet the entrance requirements:
Have a bachelor's (or equivalent) degree
- or be in the final year of your bachelor's degree program at the time of registration

If you initially enroll/register as a final year undergraduate student with a degree in progress, you may not register for the Level II exam until you have earned your degree, or obtained professional work experience that meets the programs entrance requirements. At the time your degree is awarded, you may update your account education information to certify that your degree has been received.

is sharing of books okay?...or is it not allowed?


I wanted to read couple of books before actually applying. Because that would have enabled me to take a decision whether I want to continue pursuing or not.




Is the curriculum in pdf format??

Hi Puys,

Hope this link will answer ur query...

Fee Schedule

There is no exam center in India for Dec-2012 Level I Exam... Anybody know why is that???

I have heard that they add India some days before the exam. Due to some legal constraints.

So u can change ur exam center when they add India.


yup u r rite....

Are you sure that there will be exam centers in India which will be later added??? I dont want to go to some other country for my exam...

An option of India as destination for examination will be added later for the December 2012 exam. This has been the trend for the past few years due to a legal tussle going on between CFAI (USA) and ICFAI.

Yes.. it is..

friends what is the study strategy that you'll are planning to adopt for the december exam?
i think it would be good if we could share our opinion on what would be a good strategy to follow depending upon past qualification and experience..
I plan to start with Quant first

I found this sequence in the June 2012 thread:
FRA
Eco
Quant
Equity
FI
Derivatives
Corporate Finance
AI
Ethics
Hope this helps...
I plan to start that way itself...
I have no idea about finance coming from an engineering background...:

Anybody know where can I get Schweser Notes in Delhi???
Is there any difference in June and December notes???
I have the soft copies but I prefer printed material...
