This especially applies to retakers: Now that Stalla and Schweser are one and the same and the Schweser exams have not changed at all at least through 2010 (this has been confirmed by multiple AF users, slight changes with the curriculum, [eg. Behavioral] and switched around problem statements, but literally exactly the same content), there just isn’t much out there in the way of new ways to test yourself before June. I’m a retaker, so I will obviously be redoing my Schweser exams from last year, but what else is there? Here’s what I’ve got tallied for the next two months:
Schweser Books 1&2
Schweser Live Mock
Any ideas on where to get additional quality resources to practice in exam format?? Of course there’s always the 2009-2011 actual essay questions (http://www.cfainstitute.org/cfaprogram/courseofstudy/samples/Pages/index.aspx) but while these are helpful, it would be nice to have another full exam book full of resources available. Also, some people have trouble finding reading the old exams helpful beyond getting a feel for what the exam might be like because of the old: “If they’ve tested that question in the past 3 years, they won’t use a similar one in the next two years” complex.
I’m guessing its going to be going over the CFAI end of reading questions again and buying the two, 2 hour Sample exams for $40.00 apiece.
