Kahuna,
I don't mean to be rude, but the CFA has greatly evolved since you took it. The pass rates are less than 40% (and that number comes from those who actually showed up for the exam- when I looked around the room there are substantive percentage who does not). Pass rates were quite different when you wrote it.

Things have changed and I think a study group makes sense.

Victor.

I passed all my levels on the 1st try and I was in a study group for each one. Conclusion under KahunaCFAs logic - study groups are necessary to pass. Matter / Antimatter - the world just imploded on itself.

Good thing that there is no LoS on logic. Study groups are a great way to keep structure in your regimen and hold you accountable for keeping up. While they are not necessary (is anything?) anybody who would discourage doing so is an idiot.

Fair enough. I thought there was a period where the pass rates were considerably higher. I stand corrected for the period you wrote the exam.

Regards,
