Is there a reference document mentioning the relevance of past CFA Level 3 exam questions? There are a ton of past year official exam questions however the curriculum changes year to year. Is there some way to figure out which questions are still relevant for the current year curriculum? For Level 2, I saw such a document by Arif Irfanullah (Thank you!!) that was very helpful to help navigate past years questions. How did past Level 3 test takers manage the plethora of past year questions knowing that the curriculum has changed over the years?
L3 historically doesn’t change dramatically y-o-y…

Thanks Senator. So was your strategy to go over all the material, attempt the past exams and ignore the questions that seemed to be outside the testable curriculum?
That was my strategy (the one that saved my a$$, btw) – I went back to 2007 on the CFAI AM mocks. Before that (i.e. 19XX - 2006) seemed more and more irrelevant as I looked through them so I did not touch those.
Also, you know you are really ready for the exam when you can point out the irrelevant questions.
Not a problem. Yes, my strategy was get through all the material by end of March and focus on full mock exams each weekend leading to test day. I only went as far back as 2011 with CFAI AM sessions. If you go back further, being through the material, baspy06 is right, it’s pretty easy to spot outdated/irrelevant questions.
detailed list, from 2006
Thanks guys! Extremely useful.
