|Author||Topic: How much did online question banks help you get prepared?|
|To those who studied hard, either with the books, or notes, and then used a question bank like AN's, does it help to get things more in concrete and get a good handle on everything? Also, How does Q-Bank questions compare with what we can expect on the exam/what questions are on a CFA practice exam?|
|I would have failed without it
let me put it this way:
when i started doing review questions i averaged 55%
4 weeks later (no repeat questions) i was averaging 80%
|AnalystNotes and Schweser's review questions have a much larger computational component than the real exam, but it is a must-have resource to pound all the concepts into your head, unless you have an extensive background in finance.|
|AN's review and mock question bank was clutch. a lot of people complain that the these questions are heavy on the computations, but the test will ask you questions where you can only answer correctly if you know the equations inside and out.
In the last 2 months, i would do 60-120 questions each night with at least 240 on the weekends. there's no substitute with good ol' repetition and hammering it into your head.
