Can anybody advice the best study strategy for Level 1 which will help in understanding the concepts to nail any question on the actual CFA exams and also create a strong understanding on the CBOK for L1

I am referring the Schweser material and can do the EOC questions, however the CFAI EOC are difficult and somehow Im not confident on answering these EOC questions

Any suggestions as I understand the actual exams are not as easy as the Schweser questions

Lots of people have claimed that the Schweser Q-Bank is not a good preparation for the actual exam.

Just keep hitting the basic and review questions from analystnotes web site! I did about 3,000 questions on there, plus the 10 mock exams and the mocks and samples from the CFA and I passed with flying colors. The problem with the CFA EOCs is that they are often not multiple-choice, which is annoying. I'd recommend doing the MS ones, and focus on analystnotes review exams for the rest.

Also, do take your time to review any test questions/exams you take. Last year when I studied for L1, I found that some of the most useful studying resulted from doing that - and make sure that you check ALL questions, not just the ones you got right (it does happen that you answer correctly but you reasoning was off). Keep doing that, take notes, and go through those.

Good luck!
