Is anyone doing the practice exams yet. I tried the multiple choice part of the first Schweser and found it tougher than I expected. Only 65%. Anyone else experiencing turbulence?
65% on your first practice exam is very good. plenty of time to pull that up. i plan on doing one in the next week or so.
I would think on March 20th pulling a 65 is not bad. I’ve put in allot of time and I think I am doing ok and I highly doubt I would pull a 65 today.
i’d be happy with a 45% today - it is still March
Whoever is taking an exam now will run the risk of climaxing too early. Forrest Gump style.

Just did the 3rd morning exam. I believe that sometimes Schweser tries a little too hard to be challenging and makes some questions with some less than coherent answers. I found to be some of the issues in GIPS to be out of wack. I also found the very last question to be very confusing. I am not even sure if it is correct.
how will you do say in the second week of May is the question.
I just took the morning session of Schweser Volume 1 this morning. There were some questions where I didn’t know what they were asking for (e.g., question on on the 6 due diligence factors related to buyout funds). Overall, I was pretty satisfied with the results. I didn’t do any formal tabulation, but I estimate the number of correct marks to be in the 50-60% range. Most importantly, I had the IPS question practically spot on. Its just a matter of focusing more on some of the other areas.
i scored 108%. But i made up a couple of really hard extra-credit questions and gave myself bonus points if I got them right. you really have to push yourself on this one.
Just put down a 45% on the morning session of practice test #1. I’ve still got alot of work to do! Anyone else in the same boat?
