Time to start studying for the Level 2 exam of the CFA. I did so poorly the first time I'm convinced I must have spelled my name wrong. At the beginning of the course I took to help pass the test, an instructor said "Don't get married, switch jobs, or sell your house while you're trying to study..." Fortunately I only did one of the three (sold my house), but that process was both extraordinarily stressful and overwhelmingly time consuming that I'm pretty sure it negatively impacted my test results.
So, instead of studying for just 6 months for the test, I'm going to start now (well, a few weeks ago), and try to review everything at least once before January, 2012.
