So I’ll be through all 6 Schweser Mocks by this weekend, still have the 2012 and 2013 CFAI Mocks…but after that (lets say in the final 10 days). Should I re-do a Schweser mock, or just do EOC’s and review topics/formulas? I am scoring between 58% and 66% so far, but feel like I have really locked in some of my weaker points. Hope to crack 70% this weekend, as I have seen some improvement.
Why are you saving the CFAI Mocks? I would suggest taking those soon and reviewing whatever weaknesses THOSE expose.

You’re right, I might take the 2013 this Sunday. I just wanted to get a few of the Schweser mocks out of the way to build up my waek points before attempting the “official” mock.
attempt 2012 mock first
This is not a bad idea - warm up for CFAI-style questions before the true acid test. Nearly all of the questions are addressed in this year’s curriculum. I think I graded myself on 119 questions for it.
cgottu how many u got
eco+pm same q werr no in syllabus this time
If I recall correctly, there was one question in PM I tossed out because I didn’t recall anything in the curriculum (nor could I find anything after grading) about it. I felt like the rest of the exam was covered this year. Granted, some terms were different in, say, Econ - but I graded myself on those questions anyway because I felt that, given what I am expected to know this year, I should have been able to get those questions through simple logic. In fact, one of the Econ questions, while not in this year’s curriculum, I remember from last year’s L1 curriculum.
I was hesitant to exclude questions just because they were not clearly discussed in the curriculum. Fear is a far greater motivator than confidence.
okay, thanks for the advice. I’ll do the 2012 mock tomorrow, and if I don’t bomb it, take the 2013 on Sunday.
General, cgottu do tell ur 2012 mock scrres
yeah, I will circle back to this thread Saturday evening and post.
2012 Mock was my first test. Took it on 4/10 and scored 66% - it was quite discouraging but fueled my motivation.
mine was 64% so u did better haha.
when u giving 2013 mock
66% isn’t so bad (especially since it was a month ago). I’m shooting for a 70%…but would take a 65%. Just as long as I don’t bomb it.
Taking 2013 tomorrow.
I will give one session of CFA 2011 mock today
