Anyone is planning to use Mark Meldrum for level 3?
I used Mark Meldrum for level 2, I know many candidates praise him, and I believe he is fairly good, but I personally don’t feel that satisfied.
I found his notes to be pointless (I felt the the notes could only be understood by the person who wrote them, they didn’t provide comprehensive information), unless I have the video in front of me, I can’t read the notes on their own and understand what’s going on.
The videos were good, but I didn’t like it when he argued (ranted) about irrelevant things in between, specially that my time is very tight, but that was not a big issue.
The mock exams were a joke! Like literally a joke! They were full of mistakes, in answers and questions, he would silently correct and re-upload them as if I am expected to re-download every few minutes and see what has been corrected!! It was a waste of time in May, when the exam was around the corner and I needed reliable materials to review and practice from. It was extra annoying that when I posted questions about the mistakes I found (i was genuinely in doubt whether there was a mistake or it was just me who got something wrong), he’d ignore the questions, probably because he had corrected the mistakes in the version uploaded, but do I have to re-download the version every-time I come across a mistake? Am I expected to? Do I have time for this in MAY? Shouldn’t he feel responsible to announce it somehow so no candidate will rely on WRONG info?
I was planning to register with him for level 3, but I changed my mind during May solely because of the mocks, yet I am in doubt if he is still better than others.
Right now, I am not sure which provider to use IF I am not going to use Mark’s materials in level 3. I’d appreciate it if others could share their plan, those who will attempt level 3 in 2020, please let me know what provider you are planning to use and let me know of your experience with them, what you liked best, what you did not like. No provider is perfect, but there are “important things” that I look for in a provider, the mock exams and practice questions are a deal breaker for me, so i would like to hear about the pros and cons when you suggest a provider to see if the cons are something I can move past.
