I have an upcoming CFA level 1 examination in Dec. Any tips/recommendations for that or crash courses that I can look into?

I know that I have less than 2 months to look into studying 6 textbooks worth of knowledge. Does anyone have any tips to do that or crash course or even cheatsheets?

Ditch the CFA textbook, go download and print Schweser Notes. Resources can be found in the first link that pops up when you google 'CFA Space'. Should be a Chinese website, not entirely sure it is legal so shall not post the link here haha.

Next 2 weeks - everyday including weekends go read Schweser notes and skim through all the content.

Subsequent 2 weeks - do all the practices behind each topic in the Schweser notes.

Thereafter - do the 6 Schweser papers and the official CFA mock. If these are done, go download previous CFA mocks from the same website above. They use some repeat question structures so these might be useful.

And....you are all set. This assumes you can spend 3hr of studying each weekday and 8hr each weekend day. Drop your social life meanwhile, cheers.

Just practice the practice papers like Ten year series and you should be okay.

As for the cheatsheet, just note down all the formulas

Hm, the practice papers that I have.....don't really have answers to them. May I know where can I get more practice papers?

That's sufficient time to cover all 6 books. Do the practice questions, that should help.

Oh really? That's a relief! Because im working as well (sometimes I even have to bring work home), this is going to be a huge challenge.
