I can't use it yet because I don't have the work experience.

I'm sure there are plenty of ways you can "use it", you just can't claim to be a CFA Charter Holder.

So, after some things in my personal life and work life that prevented me from taking the CFA level 1 last year, I just sat for the CFA level 1 this past Saturday.  Exam was easier than the CFAI mock tests, so pretty confident I passed (I was getting 73%-75% on the mock tests, which put me in the 80th percentile according to the CFAI website).  So, feel pretty good but you never know, I'm close enough that I could have screwed up and not passed.

I feel like if you put in the hours you will pass (which can be hard when you are working 60-70 hour weeks, but just have to suck it up).  The material isn't complicated, just a lot of stuff to remember. 

Anyone sitting for level 2 in June?

If you feel good about it, you probably did.

Well, I guess that's another thing that Moraen is right about.  I got the results today and I passed level 1.  Actually was right at the 90th percentile, so feel pretty good about it.  Now on to level 2 for this June.

It was like that in Charlotte as well.

Btw - Congrats kabushki!  Each level is an accomplishment in and of itself.
