I am waiting on level 3 so I believe I have two weeks until I hear. I definitely passed the afternoon session so it is all about how much I [messed up --admin LadyGeek] up the morning.

How long were you guys involved in the FA field before deciding to take the exams? I have been in the field a little over a year and this is something that really interests me in pursuing.

Thanks!

I'd worked at PIMCO for about three years, but I didn't decide to take the exams; that was . . . um . . . decided for me.

I have been thinking about giving this exam for a while now. I don't work in finance but just want to read up and see if I can pass level I for the heck of it.

I concur. Did this about a decade ago, the first time Level I was offered in December (huge snow storm). Level III was definitely the hardest for me. Really enjoyed the whole process. Was cool to rise to the challenge.

swaption, grok, magician ... thanx for the words of encouragement.

With only 3 months to study for the Level II,it was much more of a challenge than Level I. During the morning session, i failed to monitor my time properly and had 22 questions left when they surprised me by announcing that there was 30 minutes left. My score surely took a hit from this mistake. Afternoon went fine. For Level III i will wear a watch ;)

Magician's CFA bogleheads thread from over a year ago, inspired me to start the process: How many CFA charterholders have we here?

This is the second time in a week that someone has started a thread (one here, one on a magicians' forum) accusing me of having inspired them. I'm definitely going to have to do something about this dangerous trend.

This thread is now in the Personal Finance (Not Investing) (career path).

Why passing this exam means a lot: Value of the CFA Charter
