Editor's note: This is a personal story shared as an anecdote. You should definitely not look to this example for your own CFA preparation approach!
My name is Scott, and in the summer of 2011, I passed my CFA Level I with just 2 weeks worth of studying.
I started two Saturdays away from the actual test having done no more than a cursory glance at my books beforehand. And somehow, incredibly, I managed to pass. Zee wrote to me one day asking if I'd like to share my story with 300 Hours readers, and over the course of the Christmas holidays, I wrote my experience down.
Here is my story.
