Let’s Talk About: CFA Level I Results

Are you among the 37% of candidates who passed the December 2012 exam? Are you going to celebrate by allowing yourself one night off from studying and then cracking the Level II books first thing tomorrow morning?

Or perhaps you weren’t so lucky? And right now are feeling like all you want to do is run outside and cry, without a coat on, because you’re a loser in the eyes of the CFA Institute and losers don’t deserve to stay warm? You can tell us. We’re listening.

    I am guessing these people are the same ones who put "Level 1 CFA Candidate" on their resumes and LinkedIns. In that case, I am a 2016 presidential candidate, a Nobel Prize candidate and Kate Upton boyfriend candidate.

    Why would you do that when you can sell them and revamp 15% of their cost? Especially the Curriculum books which I don't think I even opened on level 2 and 3.

    No because I refuse to pay for overnight shipping. That shit can wait the normal 4-7 business days while I drink myself to oblivion.

    Does revamp = recoup?

    Condolences to my fellow 73% failures. Any thoughts on where we erred?

  19. Posted by Guest | January 22, 2013 at 5:13 PM

    Please elaborate on how this is done. I wasn't even the one who technically bought my books so this is pure value add.

    100 – 37 = 73 now? Maybe start with simple arithmetics.
