anyone else yet to crack a book on GIPS? if so, what’s your plan? cant just give away 5% of exam…

Skip the book. Read summaries and do questions, especially EOS. It should suffice to nail at least general provisions.

thank you. any opinion on Schweser Q bank for GIPS?

If you have access then do it. I think that they are quite representative.

Depends on your situation. Work your risk & rewards for it.
