I used Elan for Level 1 and have to say their scheduling is worse. They were late on their order when I used them. Their material is very good though. They made up for being late by throwing in a free eleventh hour guide for me and their prices are a lot cheaper so I might still go with them for L2.
You should be studying from the curriculum and only use 3rd party material as a supplement. I’ve read elsewhere that you can’t just rely on 3rd party for L2 and L3, unlike L1. I started quant last week and I’m struggling to understand the concepts already. Everything is new, unlike L1 where I’ve seen most of the stuff in undergrad.
I called Kaplan last week. They said the earliest date is Oct. 29, and they assured me they would not charge my credit card until the package has been shipped. I went ahead and place my order. Read FRA and Equity from CFAI materials already. I’m pumped up to knock this out!
I don’t think it’s bad. Memorizing it all and testing well is another animal. I don’t fear tests anymore thought because I’ve taken so many; SAT, ACT, LSAT, Bar exams, MPRE, CFA LI, etc… I look at it as memorizing a concept and applying it to a slightly different set of facts…
