Every candidate that makes it in the CFA program is advised to prepare or to the least have a study note to refer to while undertaking
the complete stage of the course. A study note is simply a reference material that tries to outline academically the topics o each subject matter that forms part the whole program. The study note may be created in various forms depending on the preference or the learning pattern of the candidate.
What good does a study note bring into the candidate? Are there good things that it can bring?
Fortunately, yes, a study guide does bring a lot of good things to the candidate. For one, the study guide allows the candidate to create an environment of familiarization in the topic that they are trying to study. How is this achieved? When the learner begins to break down the major topics into several parts or details, he gets to be familiar with the contents subconsciously.
In addition, a study note is beneficial to the candidate because it permits for an effective visualization of what is being studied. When a learner puts down into an organized format all the topics, he is able to master the several contents – this is called memory virtualization. Obviously, a study note is far better as a learning tool than nothing should you want to be successful in achieving the certification in CFA. No matter how you want the study note to be developed, as long as you are comfortable with it, learning then can be best achieved.
