Study Plan - Kaplan

I am sitting the level one exam in June 2020. I have got the materials for Kaplan and I am working my way through the activities on the portal they give you. They suggested starting with Quants so im working through that first. I am reading the “activities” then watching the video lectures for each reading and taking notes. So i am working my way down the list. Is this the best way to go about it? Does anyone have any tips? Each activity has a recommended time e.g 40mins, 90mins etc. But it seems to be taking much longer :frowning:

Thanks in advance

I sat for level one in December and also used Kaplan, and what I would recommend is that you create a plan where you get through the material before May 1st. This includes a few days for practice/review after each section, and then a day of practice of all past sections covered as well before moving onto the next section. One thing I would have done differently is I would have done some practice questions after each reading as well. The more practice questions you do, the better. Oddly enough, I found that ethics came super quick to me at the end by just doing tons of questions, reading the explanations after I answered each one, even for ones I got correct. Anyway. I started in with less time than you have now. Just make a detailed plan of what you need to do, like 1 reading per day + 20 review questions, and then use a calendar to see if you can finish before May, including a generous amount of review days. And then STICK TO YOUR PLAN, and you will do just fine this summer! All the best.


I’m also taking it in June using Kaplan and it takes me longer to get through some sections than what Kaplan suggests :confused:
