Time to spread some optimism
Just realised that in the CFAI exam “The six items can be answered independently of each other, but they do require information in the vignette”.
In the Schweser Mocks some questions are related to each other (e.g. calculate a Cash Flow in Question 1; use the calculated Cash Flow in Question 2)
If you have no clue how to answer Question 1, you can’t answer Question 2.
But if I’m right about the quote from the CFA page, that’s not going to happen in the real exam.
