    Ive just completed the first 3 out of 8 subjects at diploma level. I know there are a few people here who have gone all the way. Can you offer any advice about which subjects are easier and more useful to a trader.


    301 - Understanding Finance Industry
    302 - Business and Finance Practice
    310 - Financial Planning and Wealth creation

    Want to do:

    401 - Financial markets economics
    405 - Stock market and products
    502 - Understanding derivatives

    Then theres:

    515 - risk management and insurance products (compulsary....urgh!)
    507 - managed funds industry
    501 - managing and marketing financial products
    500 - analysing company performance

    Im leaning towards 501, cos it sounds like the least boring one. But open to suggestions......

    Am I crazy to do these 5 subjects in one semester?
