Relax, read the questions carefully. If you have any sort of financial background you will do fine, it is an easy exam.

I took CSC Exam 1 a few months back. If you're cramming, I'd strongly recommend you focus on the Equity securities, fixed income & Cdn Economy....that's about 60% of the content on the exam.... and make sure you know it by heart...b/c they do ask detail questions. If you still have a bit of time cover the Derivatives section.


BTW I passed Exam 1. :cheesygri

Do you guys have any useful sites for CSC resources? I am looking for sample questions if possible.

Thanks

The only suggestion i have is to login into the CSC website and do the pre-test, post-test, quizzes that the CSI has given you. If you can handle those questions, then you should be ready for the Exam.

Is CSC a lot easier than level 1 CFA?

I just started to study for my CSC course, looking to finish the entire course in 3 months time.

Anyone in the GTA area doing the same thing?
I'm located in Thornhill/Richmond Hill/Markham, Ontario.

Msg me and we can maybe start a study group.

A simple yes doesn't even begin to distinguish the difference between the CSC and the first level CFA. It's like night and day.

Are you planning on doing the CFA?

High School students pass the CSC... the CFA is a challenge for even the top university grads...

i am just wondering why everyone is doing CFA these days
among the 3 levels of CFA exams, which one is the hardest? i guess in terms of difficulty, it's like CFA3>CFA2>CFA1>CSC, am i correct?
