How do you feel?
Alright guys/gals, how confident do you feel? I wanted to post my thoughts on the experience as a first time L1 candidate.
For some background, I have a BBA in Finance and MS in Finance, as well as some industry experience and personal experience trading etc. I used Schweser primarily and I prepped by reading the entire Schweser curriculum and doing EOCs for each chapter. Then I went back and read the chapter reviews and did the CFAI EOCs on my second run through. Lastly I did all 6 Schweser mocks, but not the CFAI mock. I scored between a 74.25% & 77.1% on all the mocks.
My main concern was not knowing the relative difficultly of the test compared to the Schweser mocks. Several people on here said the mocks were harder but Schweser specifically says the test will be harder than the mocks.
Overall, I found the test to be very similar in difficulty as the mocks. I thought FRA was a little harder but that FI and Econ were a little easier. I feel pretty confident overall, but would love to hear what others are saying about comparisons, their experience, plan to sit L2 in June or wait, etc.
