Quality of Schweser Qbank

Hi guys,

I did all end of chapters practice problems of the CFAI program curriculum and I started doing the Schweser Qbank. Until now I answered 757 questions of a total of 2017 questions, but the more I answer the Schweser Qbank the more I get the felling that those are not good questions to practice. There are so many questions that are written in a bad way and I wish to know if I’m the only one thinking that. So, for you guys that are using the Schweser Qbank, what are your thoughts?

Ps: I liked a lot the Schweser books, my only problem is with the Qbank.

Schweser CFA® study packages are the key to CFA exam success. Serious about the passing the CFA exam? Just choose Schweser.

I like Schewser but the qbank is pure junk.

I think context is important.  Any problems from CFAI are the gold standard.  I think the Schweser Qbank is decent for what it is - a way to quickly spot check yourself and to identify areas of weakness to study further.  Does it compare to CFAI questions?  Absolutely not, but I’ve still found it helpful.   Also, I feel like I can identify poorly written questions in the Qbank while I am doing them so I don’t waste time on them.

So … you answer only the three that are left?

Simplify the complicated side; don't complify the simplicated side.
