Backdrop to why my strategy is the way it is: I am much more alert and focused after I wake up and can sometimes struggle trying to learn new or challenging material in the evening. My brain starts to wind down after lunch and by the time I get home, I’m kind of tired. After studying for L1, I realized that a tremendous amount of my gain came from the last month (May) that I was off (since I graduated school) and just went through every EOC problem and plowed through practice exams, reviewing along the way. I studied almost exclusively from the CFAI books and very little from Schweser books apart from their practice exams. Given that this time around I am working and don’t have the luxury of studying with a pretty flexible schedule, I have to rethink how I spend my time. My plan: Read exclusively from Kaplan Schweser -Read Schweser books for 1-1.5 hours before work every morning -During lunch, if I have time, do Kaplan practice problems -Spend 1.5-2 hours every evening doing Blue Box and EOC questions from CFAI book -Spend all Saturday and Sunday reading Kaplan Schweser TLDR; PLOW through Schweser books at a reasonable pace, leaving all of April and May for review. For reviewing, I will look solely to CFAI books (redo Blue Box and EOC) and use weekends for practice exams. For those who have taken level 2 before or if you foresee me coming across problems with this strategy, can you please share? Given my backdrop, would you use your time before and after work differently? Thanks!
