Hubby & I wrote the CFA (Chartered Financial Analyst) Level I exam today. It was a miserable experience both studying for the darn thing, and also taking it. Hubby was smart: he didn't even bother studying for the exam. In fact, he didn't even know how to use the authorized calculator for the test (he used a Texas Instruments BA II Plus, while I stuck with my trusty HP12C). I was so filled with utter contempt and hatred for this test, that I wanted to write a passionate post titled "Why the CFA Program Blows". But I have better things to do.
