See my recommendations below:

Quick Tips

Pass Mark: The CFA Institute recommends aiming for a score of at least 70%. Good preparation will make you ready. Even with the large syllabus, the exam is structured so that you can pass with some mistakes. Don't feel overwhelmed by the large amount of material!

Curriculum: The official curriculum is available from the CFA in both electronic and paper form. Click here for the curriculum.

AdaptPrep Material: Let us help you pass. Our practice material includes a large bank of more than 3,000 exam-style questions to help you learn. We also have videos that help you master difficult material. See

Ethics Emphasis: The CFA Institute considers Ethics an essential part of the curriculum. The ethics section is sometimes given extra weight for candidates who are close to the pass/fail threshold.

Study Timeline: We recommend that you develop a timeline to help you stay on track. Here is a suggested schedule:
August: Get source material. Begin first reading of material. Read for comprehension–do not try to commit everything to memory. Subscribe to AdaptPrep
August–November: After each reading, test your understanding by topic quizzes within AdaptPrep. Review videos of topics that are difficult.
November 1: Start taking mock exams
November 1st–21st: Learn from mistakes on mock exams. Review source material and videos for weaker areas.
November 21st–November 30: Review areas that you already know to build confidence. Plan to get good exercise and rest before the exam.
December 3rd: Exam Day!
