Not interested. Do you have this year’s answers though? Question number with lettered answer will suffice. No explanations please. Thanks in advance.
Mock 1 and Mock 2 were about 85% of last years test.
But what use are those if i don’t have the questions?
Where the hell are the other 35 questions?
MOCKS ARE NOT CLOSE TO THE LAST YEAR TEST.
Some people say mocks were last years tests, others not. WHAT’S THE DEAL? Were they or weren’t they?
many of the mock questions are from last year’s exam
Reading some of the answers it sounds a heck of a lot like Mock 2…
Yes. some of this answer looks familiar. It is good to know it is similar to last year. I guess we can expect similar difficulties.
I think the majority of repeaters have agreed that the CFAI Mocks are basically last year’s exam.
we should all count off for responsibility to remember the topic of 1 question so form the same list… would that be unethical? (if it was just the topic and not word for word question?) I’ll do #1 am/pm
i don’t understand what I’m looking at. answers to select questions from last year? where do you come up with these?
Man, this is like buying a bootleg dvd! You get most of the movie, then some parts are cut out. Then all the specualtion starts…lol
