I can tell you that the exam questions are set based on the official curriculum.
I have never seen Meldrum’s QB, so I can’t judge. It could be difficult for you now as you are still learning new things. If it is very different from EOCQ and CFA site, then do it sparingly. Having said that, sometimes it may be good to do some difficult questions so it will broaden up the way you think of the concepts.
I mean in corporate finance 2 (Measures of Leverage) I got all questions right from EOCQ and CFA site, but when i went to Meldrums Question Bank I wasntt able to answer the questions with the same accuracy like I did when solving the CFA questions.
You will find a lot of variance from the different provider’s q-banks and questions from institute itself. I think the best thing is to get a q-bank from a third party, and do them PLUS all the CFAI questions. Doing as many questions as possible will help you so much come exam day. Even if they aren’t exactly like the ones you will find on exam day, you are slowly adding to your understanding with every question you do.
This is certainly true, but I dont have time enough to do the questions from a 3rd party provider I think Im gonna leave them for the very end (last month if I get spare time), after redoing all CFA questions again.
Focus on EOCQs and mock exams, dont waste you time with 3rd party questions if you dont have enough time. On a side note, i did buy MM video for my lv3, didnt find his questions too challenging. And level 1 is easy man, just relax, finish your readings, and do all the questions and mocks offered by CFAI, you will pass with flying colour.
Im kind of confident by what I have done so far Im with 79% correct answers have done 802/2826 questions, studied 30% of the whole material, what Im worried is about the time of finishing the rest theres still 70% to go (half of equity, half of quant, PM, FRA, Econ, Ethics, AI and Der), theres too much left still.
I wanted to finish everything by early May but I will probably finish by 15-20 May, I wanted to do 1 month of review that I think would be ideal but I`m worried to not finish everything by early May and only have 15 days to review.
