I have read a lot about using Schweser vs. CFA Insitute materials for CFA L3. For Level I and II I used a combination. I read Schweser first and then I have done all practise questions and blue boxes in the CFA Insitute books, FinQuizz questions and Elan questions and all practise exams which are available (especially the CFA Insitute moch exams from the past 5 years.
I thought I would do the same for CFA level 3
Reading Schweser materials (making some important flash cards)
Doing the end of chapter questions in the Schweser books
Doing all Blue boxes and practise questions in the CFA Insitute books (at least once)
Doing Elan questions (if avaiable in time - seems they are offering CFA Level III materials for the first time)
Doing Schweser and FinQuizz and Elan mocks (if available)
Doing CFA I mocks 2008 - 2014
3- 6: Revising weak areas on a continous basis and making additional flash cards
I think in general it takes to much time to read the CFA Insitute books and for me it is always the most important thing to do as much practise questions as I can. I have never used the QBank, since I had the feeling that the questions are a way to easy.
What are your thoughts?
Many thanks for you help in advance
