Taking the Plunge

This is it. After six years of procrastinating and delaying, I'm finally going to do it.

So why now, after all these years? I don't know. Maybe it's because I feel that years of teaching and taking higher degrees is not enough, that in order to be credible, I also need to be a CFA. Maybe I'm just insecure of the growing number of people around me who have at least passed Level 1 (egad my former students!). Maybe it's because, after teaching two modules of review program (Equities in 2010 and Quantitative Methods just a couple of weeks ago), I feel that now is the best time to take the exam. Maybe it's because I know this will force me to study sub-topics that I'm still unfamiliar with. Or maybe I just want that suffix because my girlfriend already has hers (CISM). Who knows?

Anyway, good luck to me and to others who will also take the exam in December. We have three months to prepare, and I think that should be enough. Feel free to email me questions about the exam, let's try to turn this into one big virtual study group.
