77% on Schweser Mock

In a previous post I described how I have been grossly front loading my allocated study time just based on my career and am now around 170 Hours.  I recently took a Schweser Mock Exam from 2011 and scored a 77%.  Obviously December is still a long time from July 11th – Are the Schweser Mock’s that much easier than the real exam?

Still no mail from CFA for exam result date intimation.


I am quite sure that I did not do anything illegal during the exam. Eventhough I did not receive any PCP mailer till now, this is making me shit worried. 

I have verified my mail again and again from the CFA website and I do get occasional marketing mails from the CFA institute. I do not understand why I am not receiving this one.

Elan Guides

Hello Everybody,

I’m going to be preparing for the CFA Level 1 exam in June 2015. I know this is probably one of the more repeated topics, but I have a few questions in regards to study materials. I was originally planning on using Schweser and Timeprep to keep me on track, but I’ve been reading some excellent reviews about Elan Guides. Can anybody comment on how Elan’s curriculum is designed or parallels that of the CFAI material?
