5 CFA Level 1 books from 2016 covering all exam-related topics:
- Book 1: Ethical and Professional Standards and Quantitative Methods
- Book 2: Economics
- Book 3: Financial Reporting & Analysis
- Book 4: Corporate Finance, Portfolio Management & Equity Investments
- Book 5: Fixed Income, Derivatives & Alternative Investment
Very suitable for those who are looking to grasp CFA finance concepts as the books are very well structured and very explanatory. (Helped me more than the official exam prep materials!)
There are some handwritten notes here and there, but they're more helpful than annoying.
