According to Google Reader, I am subscribing to 64 RSS Feeds, including mine: Digmann.com RSS. One of my favorites has nothing to do with my work, new gadgets, or the news. In fact, it is teaching me how to invest.

Investopedia is the encyclopedia of investment knowledge, which also includes news about earnings reports and the such. What they are all about is not why I am posting today though.

The reason I am here is they published a 15 chapter review for the Chartered Financial Analyst Level I exam. You can read about the CFA and the exam. The thing is that I wanted to ‘bookmark’ the series but could not find a general series outline page (well that might have changed since noon today but darn it, I stopped looking). To counter their offer I wanted to be able to reference the chapters as well as give any of you the chance to read them too. Just to warn you, they are long. One of the 21 sections in the Microecon chapter alone is 1500 words. So here they are already – chapter 1 and 2 were not in the RSS, so you don’t get them either:

It might take me a while to read all this, but hey I love finance and economics (yes another one of my hidden secrets). It should be dry, boring, but interest at the same time.
