I think Uliari is taking level 3.

Cool. While you're driving to the exam, why don't you punch the accelerator and veer into a telephone pole.
I sort of give a fuck.

I'm taking level 3 on Saturday. I crushed 2 last year, but this year haven't been nearly motivated enough to put in all the hours (2 wore me out... probably put in nearly 400 hrs for it). This MFer is all about endurance and I ran out of gas in March. I'm feeling much more nervous this year.

Calm, what level?

Level 1. I was supposed to take it in Dec, but there was an ice storm and all the flights were cancelled so they postponed it.

Just an FYI: 

I was using one set of study guides and the guy I am studying with had heard about "Analyst Success" (American College) so we also are using that $650. Seems pretty solid so far.

I think the books you get with the exams are enough. I didn't use anything extra.

Ulairi, do you mind sharing your L1-L3 timeline and hours you put into each one?
Did you get through all 3 in a row?  Can't remember.

I cleared L1 awhile back and gave L2 a half assed attempt which was a waste of time.  Finishing up the CFP courses now and planning to take that in November and may swing back around for L2 if I'm feeling up for it.

passed. passed. failed. passed. 

I just followed the schedule that came with my course materials. I didn't order any extra stuff and just used the materials that came with my fees. I studied anywhere from 15-25 hours per week.

I'm not in the business anymore. I don't think I'll ever become an actual charter holder unless I start an RIA or something. Which, I'm thinking about doing. 

I love my new career and I'm really happy going into work and the money I'm making is good enough right now for my family.

This is what is the most important.  Congrats.
