"I didn't used the Elan as a study guide so i can't really comment on that. I just bought their practice questions and mock exams. But based on the quality of those I'd probably say the notes are likely just as good.... I know…"
"Thank you! Lots of helpful stuff here. I've read that Elan notes seem to be preferred over Schweser. Do you think one seemed to be more concise than the other, or did you have a preference? Aside from that, thanks for the input!
"First off, I'm not a CFA charter-holder (you'll learn when you study the ethics portion you're not supposed to use "CFA" as a noun or call yourself "a CFA")
I only passed level 1 and I don't think I'm…"
"I agree with son, even if the largest one has the highest interest rate (which is a bummer) I would knock out the smallest one or two as fast as possible. Or even at once if you have the ability. Then I would put all my effort into overpaying on…"
"I've been thinking of signing up to take the CFA I exam. I've talked to some friends who have done it, and I've borrowed some of their books to get a start on preparing. They generally didn't take any courses and just…"
""I still live at home and I am thinking that once loans are all paid off I can start saving for a big down payment on a condo and finally be debt-free."
I would try to save for the condo at the same time. Who knows how much longer…"
"The percentages above were an oversimplification, and it typically seems to be much more than .0XX% more expensive when consolidating. Especially when paying monthly because that adds up over however many years one is repaying. Though I agree that…"
"There are really different schools of thought on how to repay. Though you had subsidized loans, I'm guessing the government stops covering the interest once you graduate as they will to mine, is that correct? Will they continue to cover your…"
"Is it multiple choice or writing? If you can accurately score yourself, I recommend studying alone with practice guides. Sometimes the best are published by the testing authority. If the format of the test is such that you cannot accurately score…"
"What is you definition of ride nice? I worked at a tire shop for the first 3 years I went to college, and I can tell you that they usually won't make a drastic difference in your ride quality. Though horrible tires can, it isn't too…"
Hello gentlemen, If there are any Chartered Financial Analysts here maybe you all could give me some advice. I am graduating from my university this coming May. I actually have been recruited to an investment advisory firm not too far from where I lived prior to coming to college, but my role will be sales initially. This company emphasized to me that this role is only permanent if I want it to be, and I could move into analysis at some point. Anyway, my questions are as follows.Q: I want…See More

“Dogs are our link to paradise. They don't know evil or jealousy or discontent. To sit with a dog on a hillside on a glorious afternoon is to be back in Eden, where doing nothing was not boring--it was peace.”

"Man, if you haven't done anything go and talk to your sister and tell her what she is doing is wrong.
She hasn't acused you, yet is treating you like you have been accused? Well, that's some horrid villification."
"Sorry Prescott I didn't mean to downplay your issues.
I echo a lot of what the guys are saying here. Friendship comes first and you need to sit him down and tell him how you feel and what you are seeing. And if it is making you uncomfortable…"
""Two of my only true friends"....its hard but take a look at your life and expand your social circle...this is a bigger issue than your question. What happens when they break up and you potentially lose both of them?"
"I don't know...that's possible. But believe me, it's NOT like I'm hooked on some idea that I could be with her. Like I said, I know better than to cross that line. I hang out with them a lot because they are two of my only true…"
