Can anyone speak on how well the questions in the Schweser Q-Bank and Schweser practice exam books compare to the actual test? What about AnalystNotes CFA mock exams? Not looking for any information about the content of the test. I want to know how well they approximate exam questions. Thanks.

Schweser mocks are easier than the exam, but AnalystNotes ones are harder. Don't let them scare you.

For me as a non-native English speaker:

Schweser practice exams AnalystNotes CFA mock exams use the same "language" as the study books, and when I encounter a real CFAI composed question (let it be EOC or mock exam) takes me more time to understand the question or some of the answers. So CFAI mock is way way harder for me.

This is one of my biggest fears now, that I got too much used to the Schweser/AnalystNotes type of explanation.

Anyone else having similar feelings?

i was very confident about the exam as i used schweser notes and did the concept checkers after going through every topic and i was hitting between 70-90% everytime, and then i will do the cfa end of topic question and i was getting the same range of results. And then last week i decided to do a mock test on analystsnotes just before i started revision.Fair enough i had forgotten alot of formulas and by doing revision i could have scored better.This Mock was extremely difficult and really killed my confidence and i had to put myself back together.Can anyone advise on how the analystnotes mock compare to the actual exam

I was very pleased with your notes and question bank. I especially like the mock exams because it helped to pull everything together.
