Level II Retake - Any suggestions on what to do different this time?
Failed Level II, for a second time now. Certainly felt better going into the exam than last year and had several questions stone cold locked that I would have missed last year. If you threw me a interest rate swap question last year I would have given up but this year I was able to tackle it better.
Last year I only used Mark Meldrum videos, went through EOCs, and then did a few mock exams; clearly wasn’t enough both going into the exam and in hindsight. This year I read all the Schweser books, did a bunch of their Qbanks, and did every single CFAI Qbank question as well as all four parts of their mocks.
One thing I didn’t do much of this year was topic tests and EOCs since I spent a lot of time just doing the CFAI Qbanks.
For those who have retaken and passed, what did you do differently?
