AuthorTopic: Workable Strategy?
@2014-05-02 08:08:45

I am finishing up with my second-time reading of all the analystnotes materials (except ethics, which I am yet to read for the first time). I am also taking the mock exams 2-3 simultaneously. However, i will end up finishing with the second read, basic and review questions ony by Mid May.

I hope to take only mock exams 4, 5 and 6 only during the last fortnight.

My question is: Is my strategy fine? Workable? I am scoring average 75% in my review exams and my ranking is around 63%. Are the last 2 weeks enough to take all the mock exams and gauge my performance and come up to speed for June 7th?

If my strategy is wrong, please suggest a better one. Hopefully there is still time!

I have the same strategy.

I have been through all the material here once, I am finishing a review of it before I start purely looking at mock exams etc. I plan to only work through mock exams in last few weeks (maybe the last 3)

At the end of the day everyone is different and you have to find what works for you.

Your strategy sounds doable if you put in the time.

The one thing that I'd definitely recommend is that you read Ethics ASAP. This is one of the cornerstones of the exam and you don't want to blow it.

You need to be careful about just doing LOS quizzes right after you read the material. You should probably do a full length test soon so you figure out how confusing it is to have to switch gears among different material and have different lengths of time between study and testing.

My only advice is to do lots and lots of practice questions!

I would echo what Farinha said.. READ ETHICS NOW - DO NOT TAKE THIS SECTION LIGHTLY. Know the rules and which ones/when to apply. The week before the exam, read it again. A lot of people think this is an easy section to skim over or take lightly, but I assure you it is not! Other than that, do as many practice tests as possible. The Boston Security Analysts Society offers a good mock exam as well. The most true to form I thought. Good luck!!

I passed! I did not get a chance to tell you before the exam - but your site was excellent. I will definitely take it next year for Level II.
