2018 Schweser CAIA LII Material

Just got a response back from the folks up at Kaplan.  LII materials won’t be released until early December.  Kinda odd considering when i first signed up back in September, they noted that materials were to be available no later than early Oct. Cutting it a little tight for some of those over-the-top study fanatics. Oh well…more time to relax, i guess.

ya don't know what ya don't know until ya know it.

I received the Uppermark lvl II material on Monday.

Ya, that’s nuts considering it is the same textbook as the Sept 2017 exam, isn’t it?

I think there might be one small change. If you look on the CAIA website, I believe they may have added a constructed reading based on distrubuted ledger (or bitcoin to the layman)

I contacted Kaplan and they said the notes (books) will ship Nov 22-25, which means (due to Thanksgiving and the weekend) we won’t receive them until the last week of November or first week of December.

just got the shipping notification for the schweser materials…here we go…

Schweser books supposed to be delivered by end of day Nov 27th.

just got the update from UPS and they’re on their way to my doorstep…looks like turkey comes with a side of directional HF’s and managed futures this year…

Got my books last night. Now I have an excuse to avoid family on Thanksgiving - oh hey, I really have to study kthxbye!

Will start with Schweser on Friday…

just about to wrap with book 1…a bit more painful of a read than LI materials, but still more interesting than much of CFA curriculum. looking forward to more asset class related readings in book 2.

Seems like I am always almost a  month behind you :)

I started book 2 last weekend. I’m also reading the official Wiley book along with Schweser and they consistently circle back to themes and quant stuff from Level 1. I highly recommend referring to the CAIA workbook posted on the site. The workbook for Level 2 is much better than for Level 1. They also have short answer questions for each chapter. The solutions in the workbook are pretty detailed. I’ll probably review the workbook just as much as I’ll review Schweser LOs.

good looking out jt703! i’ll be sure to incorporate later in the game.  just want to get through the material/EOC ?’s first, then i’ll do a bit deeper of a dive into workbook, Q-Bank, and short answers. 

Flash - i was bored so i decided to just get going on it before the holidays kicked into full effect lol
