Is it all really worth it?
The pass rate for the CFA exams, although improved in the recent years, is still at a low 42% and 46% for the June 2015 Level I and Level II exams. More than 1 in every 2 candidates would have been disappointed on results day. That's a big leap of faith to take - 300+ hours of study, about $2,500-$8,500 worth of fees and materials, to face the possibility of less than 50:50 chance of passing.
So if you failed this time, should you really bother with trying again?
While the answer to 'is it worth it?' isn't the same for everyone, I'll attempt to guide you through a series of questions to ask yourself that hopefully will give you a better answer for your situation.
