      I’ve used Schweser Video Lectures for Levels 2 and 3. Although most of them are very good, there are some that I personally like for their style and teaching technique.

      Andrew Holmes : Excellent Instructor. To the point. Gives additional advice for the exam. Enjoyable Lectures and never a dull moment.

      Marc LeFebvre – Great communicator. Very good and clear explanations. Great technique of summarising at the end of each section and overview at the beginning of the video lectures. Excellent sense of humour. Provides real life examples in explanations.

      David Hetherington – Brilliant teacher, especially IPS construction and Fixed Income Topics. Very detailed and clear conceptual explanations.

      For me,

      Level 2 – Andrew Holmes, Marc LeFebvre
      Level 3 – Marc LeFebvre, David Hetherington (Since Andrew Holmes doesn’t cover much of Level 3)

      Does anyone have their favorite Instructors?

      I don’t remember which one, but for Level II I had a dude for half the video lectures that had a southern accent, and likes to make lame jokes. I don’t think he’s there anymore.

      Thumbs up for Andy Holmes – great dude! I’ve opted not to use video for Level 3 though.

      I really liked this dude – Greg something, in the Schweser video series. Am not using video this year though so not sure if he’s still around.

      Can I get some love for my man Jonathan Bone??

      Andrew Holmes is awesome too. He heads up Windsor Week so if you’re willing to go out there you can meet him in person!

      @Policedog Nope, I’m from Southern California. Born in raised in San Diego but moving up to downtown LA pretty soon! I just know about Windsor Week because some of my colleagues have attended it in the past.

      I love San Diego. Did you go to university there?

      I actually went to UC Irvine which is about an hour and a half north. Quick aside: I always found it interesting that speakers of British English use “university” while American English uses “college.”

      @DollarsToDonuts Here a ‘college’ is a subset of a university…

      @christine oh wow, i had no idea! is that akin to our “schools” e.g. school of humanities, school of engineering, etc.?

      @DollarstoDonuts No, as far as I know there isn’t a standardised name for that – economics department, law faculty, etc.

      ‘College’ would mean an autonomous educational body with its own leaders and finances, but part of a university and awards that university’s degrees, and not under their own name.

      E.g. Cambridge University has about 31 colleges, each with their own halls of residence, tutors and heads, but the students all study in the same educational faculties and are awarded the same degree. Kind of like Hogwarts Houses I suppose 🙂
