Hello hina

as far as i know, there arent any institutions which provide tuitions of CFA, so one has to do most of the studies themselves. What one does in this sort of a situation is that they join a study group either physically or through email and carry out their preparations through it. This is especially the method of choice for ppl who are working.

Although still havent made up my mind, I am thinking of attempting CFA-I this december. Too bad there arent any exemptions for us CA guys in CFA. [)] but anyways.
