I'll have you know I hate FOREX the most. DX So many confusing formulas to friggin' MEMORIZE. Just hope my last minute cram session tomorrow will help me. Otherwise.......

Well, I won't be the first person taking the test a second time hahahaha

Srsly, walang ibang PMTer dito na nag-aaral para sa exam na 'to? Kahit level one lang? D:

Being nervous is a good thing, there was a study once where a group of people were given one side of a story and the other group was given two sides of the story. The story in not central to the point, but the outcome is. The researchers found out that the people who were given just bits and pieces, i.e. one side of the story were the most confident and fastest in making a decision, and on the other hand, those who were given all the sides of the story were the ones most unsure about their decision.

In my licensure exam, I was so nervous I botched the sheet where you were supposed to put your name on and I had to pay for another copy, albeit that was for only 2 initials after my name.

alacrity,
Thanks for sharing that. i was a bit surprised with the outcome, though.

TSO,
if i remember correctly, only a few people around the world take that exam and are CFAs. i think there is a very slim chance that another PMT member is in the same boat as you are.
just prepare; i think you'll do well.

coincidentally, i got a related question to you both. i'm helping a relative find the net debt of 2 US stocks  (and quick ratio of 1 of the stocks). (EDGAR info were supplied to him)
i know that net debt = s-t debt + l-t debt - C&CE
but i haven't been able to figure them out.
i'll try my luck and PM you both, perhaps you can spare 3-10 mins. of your time. i believe fundamental analysis is up your alley :D Thanks

Good luck sa exam, TSO! Anong level ka na? I know several people taking the CFA exam as well and I hope you all pass! Passing rate as far as I know is 45-50% and I hope kasama kayo dun. Good luck!

Not yet, dude.

If I pass level two, I still need: three more qualified years of experience and passing level three.
