Curious to hear if anyone scored above an 80% on any vendors practice exam (Schweser, Elan, even CFAI mock) and STILL failed the real thing. If you did, I’d be interested to learn a few things: 1. What, exactly, was your highest score on practice exam? And which vendor? 2. What band were you in on the real exam? 3. Did you retake the exam and pass? If so, how did your study methods change? 4. What do you feel is the biggest difference between practice and real thing? Nerves? Types of questions? Thanks -A
we are still struggling to pass it man… and also all mock exam are only 240 questions for so many concepts to master, so there is always a chance to fail the real exam, even if doing a lot of mock from different providers and scoring at least 80% for each is a good starting point to believe
If you score > 80% on a vendor’s practice exam, I will guarantee that you pass by betting as much money as you want on it.

good to hear the confidence. not even taking odds, huh?
I’ll even give impressive odds. An 80% or better on any of the mock exams is a really fine achievement for someone who is going to pass the exam easily.
joey’s right. i don’t think i ever passed a schweser exam throughout all three levels don’t relax too much, though. you still have time to forget things.
I hope JoeyDVivre is right. My last 3 schwesser mocks are significantly above 80% and I’m almost sure that if I took real exam at home today, I would pass, but I’m still affaid of stress and consider it a big threat on the real thing.
OK I’m giving 5:1 and betting on optiix passing. Edit: Congrats optiix on those fine scores. I meant what I said about that being a fine achievement even though nobody will ever recognize you for it.
