I'm planning on sitting for CFA L1 in June 2012 after year 1 of B-School. I won't be able to register for the test until this July or get the new CBOK till then either. I want to start studying right now though. Does the test change that much (or at all) year over year? Should I just pick up the latest Schwesser notes right now and start hitting it for a few months before school starts? I was looking at the package that includes the notes, the cheat sheets w/ formulas and the practice questions. That should suffice right? No need for the ultra-premium $1300 package, correct? Thanks a lot guys!

Not indicative of next year's changes but yeah.

If you have a year of studying ahead of you, you will destroy it as long as you are able to retain all the garbage you learn. One thing that really helped me was question bank software. Stall has PassMaster and Schweser has QBank. Getting used to question format is like half the exam.

Wait. You will have plenty of time to study as long as you are diligent about staying on track and not saving it all for the last minute. Enjoy the time off from studying for a few months.

Also, no need for the ultra-premium package.

Why not take it in Dec? Too much work taking into account grad classes too?

I thought about December, it's not so much the classwork but the job searching that I think will take up too much time. I'm a career switcher, so September - November I will be constantly traveling to NY and Boston for meetings with alum. I will also be consumed with interview prepping through the inv. management club. I think that once I secure an internship I will be able to devote more time to studying.
