I have a BSc in Economics, and no finance related work experience. Will this pose a problem when studying for the IMC, or are the books thorough enough so as people from a wide range of disciples can tackle with the exam material?

For starters there are no entry requirements.
The mathematics seems to be covered at degree level:
  • Location and Dispersion (means, medians and mode)
  • Discounted cash flows (basic discounting and compounding, annuities, perpetuities, mortgage repayments)
  • Standard Deviation
  • Security Valuation
  • Bond Valuation and Return Measures
  • Return Measures
  • NPV and IRR
Here is a syllabus, it does look very much like a typical finance degree: https://secure.cfauk.org/assets/4325...13__Unit_1.pdf

Thanks for the reply, luckily I have some experience with dealing with the topics u mentioned (except maybe the accounting ).
However, even if I feel rusty about some parts of the syllabus, do the books analyze the math and formulas in detail? What I mean is can someone who has no idea for example about bond valuation learn from the books?
