I have been studying with the CFAI readings and schweser notes, but never can get >70 on most questions. Any there any tips for those who failed? What’s the secret for getting so many sections >70. Did you guys memorize the book or do something extreme ? I did well on the essay, but did bad on the item sets. My FailureBand is 10. I found that many of Items sets were about guessing (i.e. ethics) and many topics that were unpredictable.
If you start in Sept and put in 20 hours a week you will be fine. Be prepared to sacrifice the next 9 months of your life. That’s the safest solution and that’s what I did.
