First off thank you for any and all input.
As the title states I'm getting into the thick of my CFA L1 prepping for December. I've been going through the books and reading / highlighting / writing notes in the margins. This has been working for some of the more "quanty" things like Econ and derivatives as they are all in line with my degree and I felt quite comfortable.
I'm moving onto FR&A and Ethics and I'm not quite sure that the same method will work for me. In the past I've always written notes in a word doc. and used that as a study guide but the sheer quantum of information on the CFA makes this seem a bit unrealistic (I don't want to walk around with a 100 page note packet for reviewing because then I might as well just use the books). Furthermore since Schwesser is already the condensed version I'm not sure how effective rewriting / typing the content would be. My bigger concern with hand written notes is that I don't want to end up using time inefficiently and then never look back at them again. Would appreciate any insight / personal experiences anyone has had. I understand everyone has their own methods that work for them but I'm just looking to see if anyone shares / shared similar concerns as myself and what you would change in hindsight. Thanks!
Sorry if this is posted / formatted incorrectly, still relatively new to WSO.
