CFA Study / Discussion

I cracked a book this week. Tonight I am really going to focus for a good hour or two. Oh, wait...a rerun of The Apprentice is on. I'll study next week. Later - Brian 9/29/04

- WHAT'S UP, PIMPS???? Ok, let's keep this just me, Brian and Derrich until we create another user name on this thing, and copy all this crap over there. Just b/c we have to share the password, it'd be more convenient to have a non-person specific account, in case I ever want to use this thing for anything other than CFA stuff. General questions / comments / jibba-jabba that you guys may have, related to CFA or not, let's just put at the end of the page (General BS). If you feel you've answered a question, of if the person who posed it thinks so, anyone can move it from "unanswered" to "answered." Anyone can also move them back to "unanswered" with additional notes / follow-up questions if necessary. Probably a good idea to figure out some standard format for the name/number of a question including the topic and the chapter/author that treats the subject.

- If one of y'all figures out how to create pages on this thing, and link from this page to other pages that we create, that would probably help. Probably also a good idea to drop in links in the Links section below that you find helpful for CFA-type stuff.

____________________

  • Q1_Level 1 Review_z-distribution - here's a stupid question - what is the purpose of knowing the area underneath the curve/z-distribution? I've seen examples where you want to calculate the Test Statistic (z) from a sample, and see if it falls to the left or the right of the Critical z Value / see where it falls in relation to the "decision rule," but I'm just starting to look at the z-chart - there's a "Cumulative z-table" and an "Alternative z-table" in the appendix of my (2003) Schweser Book 1. I think I get the difference between these two tables, because they give you the little example graph there next to them, but as I haven't gotten very far back into this shit, what I'm thinking is, "what the hell is the point of knowing the area underneath the curve???"

GENERAL BS

9-16-04 - 8:10 A.M. - Brian - I really like it here. When do I get a twinkie?

TRULY RANDOM BS

9-15-04_AB - I got a 4-pack of these low-carb EAS strawberry shakes recently at the store, and upon opening and tasting one, I realized that it tasted exactly like mixing up a whey protein shake and putting it in the refrigerator for a long time (which I'd done with these shake boxes), or maybe like a cross between a whey protein shake and an ENSURE, but either way, not anything too brilliant, and not nearly as good as the Strawberry EAS shakes that have some sugar in them. All this made me think, "the only difference between me making a protein shake then putting it in the fridge for a long time and this is that my shakes are all lumpy because I stir them with a spoon and don't do a very good job of it. This is partly because Josh has my blender." Then, I thought, (Eureka!) if I get that damn blender back, I can blend up a bunch of protein shake, maybe even with berries or some shit if I get creative, and then put it in the fridge in a pitcher so I can have cheap, well-mixed protein shake anytime I want/am hungry! This will probably cause me to eat healthier overall, because I won't be as tempted to eat unhealthy snacks like chips if there's a protein shake waiting for me in the fridge / no mental barrier of having to mix one up (by hand) and then drink that lumpy shit. It's like medicine! No more! Anyway, I thought this was an ingenious brainstorm and wanted to share it with you blokes. I guess the only problem would be if you started eating 300 grizzams a day of protein. Slow down, Lou Ferrigno.
