    I’m at nearly 200 hours for now, with 1 more book to go. Level 2 is hard and a mouthful! Not sure if it’s a good pace…

    I’ve only logged about 123 hours so far, in my previous 2 levels total revision time is around 220 hrs each.

    Think I might take longer than that for L2 @vincentt‌. I’m quite a slow reader, takes a while to absorb so many new concepts!

    I’m at 140 hours now with 1 book to go. I will be doing 2.5 hours a night after work and 6-8 a day on weekends from here on out, but I am also a very slow reader so I’m shooting for 350+ hours.

    @maroon5 i’m a very slow reader too. Not to worry @Dan‌ you will get quicker as you progress.

    There are 709 pages in Schweser L3 (excluding ethics and EOC questions), if you are going at 12 pages a day on average, it should take you about 60 days.

    I find that I’m more productive on weekdays, even though I’m having the full day on weekends. Try splitting your study sessions throughout the day (e.g. an hour before work, an hour during lunch and more than an hour after work), assuming 3-5 pages each session you would have already done more than 12 a day.

    I’m not sure…. maybe about 150 hours? I’m about halfway, that’s how I figured. @vincentt wow you just needed 220 hours for level 2? that’s amazing.

    @hairyfairy‌ that’s just to go through the syllabus without doing any EOC. Also, excluding the 1 month practice exam.

    I personally find L1 the steepest coming from a non financial background, L2 is very similar to L1 just an extension to it hence nothing new but down to practice practice practice.

    Sounds like I’m awfully unproductive and slow reader! Good suggestions @vincentt‌ .
    I actually pile them all on weekends only, as I’m exhausted on weekdays post work, and use that time to ‘chill’, while preparing for 12 hours per day session on weekends. Quite extreme really
