Where to start? Just look at the words themselves, capital even to a Marxist, means something that has value…

Failed the CFA® Level 1 exam again

Wednesday, January 27th, 2010

I’ll have to look at my previous results, but I knew why I would fail, too many questions about European VS American accounting standards. I actually managed to get over 70% in many categories including Corporate Finance. The sad part is I used to be pretty good at accounting, but they changed the curriculum sufficiently from when I first wrote it and I didn’t realize that until it was too late…

FREE CFA® Level 1 Study Materials

Monday, December 14th, 2009

I thought I was finished with the CFA® program and I can honestly say I have not profited in all senses of the words from doing the CFA program or my MBA.

Yahoo for YHOO

Thursday, July 17th, 2008

Yahoo Inc. has been much in the news lately with Microsoft’s attempt to buy them and their possibly anti-competitive deal with Google, the changes to their board trying to be forced upon them, even the sheer number of executives abandoning ship.

This is what happens when you take on Google and Microsoft and come third…

CFA® Level 1 Problem Set

Thursday, May 8th, 2008

I started creating problems for my CFA Level 1 study group but then my study group kinda fell apart. I thought the actual act of creating the problems and trying to reverse engineer them and cook up additional variations in and of itself had merits and benefits, so I kept doing it long after my study group fell apart…
