Advice - go for Konvexity mock questions

@jack87 - I mailed them regarding this and got a reply that they will be uploading fixed income tests by tomorrow. Let’s hope that they upload by tomorrow.

However, there is one free sectional test for fixed income in the free resources in their March Newsletter. You may go through that test. The link to newsletter is - http://konvexity.com/papers-solutions/Newsletter_Mar_2013_CFA_Level_II.pdf and the link to solutions is http://konvexity.com/papers-solutions/Solutions%20to%20March_2013_Newsle... 

That test is based on 2013 syllabus but only 4th item set (Pat Hines) case is not applicable for this year. Rest 4 item sets are from this year’s syllabus only.

Master the Level II curriculum by creating custom quizzes in the SchweserPro™ QBank. Question difficulty automatically adapts to your ability level on a given topic, measuring your knowledge and keeping you motivated. Included in every Schweser Study Package.

Vicky - if I do all of these over the next few days I won’t have any time for a mock exam. Would you advise I just do all the konvexity sectional mock exams? Or do mock exams from Schweser every day instead?

Your thoughts would be appreciated because you beasted the level 2 exam!

Put. That coffee. Down!

People passed by doing EOC and mocks only. Konvexity is just for extra practice.

Agree with umi, there is no comparison of EOC & Mock under exam conditions, but if you wants to strengthen some weak areas this could be a good practice

hi you cannot refer back to the saved test (test already taken)?

Yes i dont think u shd compare with cfa BB or EOC

If u compare prep providers it is 10% of cost of others and better quality

I would recommend this provider (Konvexity) as long as you are aware of what you are getting.

As of this morning, 13/20 of the Level 2 Sectional Exams have been uploaded. They have reached out to me and told me that they will upload all tests by Tuesday. They refunded me immediately after I asked so I am recommending based on their service.

I did not try the sectional exams but the Free Materials were on par if not better than Schweser.

Good luck all

is someone using these?

Yes I am using right now for practice, there are some mistake in solution, but still okay to get some different idea about questions in higher weight / your weak areas like equity , FRA, derivatives etc. Questions standards are pretty similar to CFA mock .

This should be keep in priority after CFA Mock & EOC.

FYI - since someone asked - there are 5 item sets per section - I do see the Fixed income sectionals up

Ok so I used the free materials. A few things that should be noted. The wording and usage of English is a little strange but acceptable. A few of the solutions are off so be careful. Overall, it’s a good supplement and if you are looking for extra item sets, try these out. But do not use it instead of CFAI mocks/questions. 

How do they compare with CFA schweser LIVE mock?

Apologies FI PM going up tomorrow and Ethics tuesday as someone earlier mentioned.

I’d say the Shweser Live mock had more thorough explanations

Guys, do you think Is it worth the time..? I m thinking of doing Equity, FRA & Corporate Finance.

How is the quality ?  I saw somebody said  its at par with Schewser, if such is the case, i’m better off doing the cfa BB & EOC with mocks.

I’m sticking to CFA mocks and EOC. I don’t need anymore stress on wondering if these are quality question and answers. 

i have subscribed to this…and will see how it works.

Lots of Indians passing level 2 and 3 and setting up their own “institutes” :) good to see entrepreneurship thriving. 

With regards to the quality, guys comeone just download the huge amount of freebies they give out and attempt a problem set or two. You have done enough questions to see fi they are good or not. If you are satisfied then pay the $20. 

Imp

Dont get depressed if u score less. I used to score just 60% in it

But do learn where you are going wrong

Thank you Vicky for referrig this, this was really helpfull in my passing Level 2 & scoring more then 70 in heavy weights such as FRA, Equity, CF, FI.

I will surely advice to go through once in last 15 days for practice, by doing this you know many trick & traps in exam day and can handle in a better way, but don’t do this at the cost of EOC & BB

Hey Vicky 

I PM’ed you. Please Check. :)

I’ve just signed up to this service and jeez the questions are quite tough…even more so than the CFAI question in my opinion. I’m getting hammered!!

Ive done 10 of the sectional tests so far (with 5 vignettes of 6 questions per test - so 300 questions in total) and am averaging 59% overall.

I averaged 72% on the CFAI online practice tests with only one try, so it seems I am finding the Konvexity questions slightly harder. With the Konvexity questions, overall I find them very useful, they are definitely not easy and there are quite a few “traps” that you need to watch out for. I feel they also require slightly more steps to get each answer compared to the CFAI questions.

For the $45 I paid for the 30 sectional tests and 3 mock exams, I feel it was great value for money…especially compared to what some other providers are charging.

If I was to find any faults with the Konvexity questions, I would say that some of the grammar used is slightly odd, and it is sometimes evident that they weren’t written by a native Engkish speaker…but that is not a massive problem and overall the vignettes and questions are clear enough.

Secondly, the CFAI has stated that in their exams, questions do not lead on from one another, or rather being able to answer one question will not depend on you having got the correct answer to a previous question - this is not always the case with Konvexity - which can lead to frustration when you know you havn’t answered one question correctly and the next two questions rely on that particular answer. But again, its definitely not a deal breaker.

So yeah, I have now made Konvexity part of my “main mock/test material” along with Finquiz and the CFAI stuff. I feel that between those three, I should be well served.
