      I was wondering if anyone else was using the Schweser question pro bank and if so how are you coping with the questions marked advance. Is it equivalent to the challenge questions that are in the study notes?

      @Diya, I used Schweser for all Levels when I took the CFA a few years ago. I find the question bank ones harder and more representative of exam level questions, whilst study notes were more straightforward to reinforce your understanding of the concepts. Basically question bank is focused on application, study notes questions is more of affirmation of theory.

      As far as Schweser goes, however, a ‘hard’ question means more calculation, and more convoluted iterations of the same theories. Hard questions on Schweser will make you a cold, mean calculating machine. Which isn’t a bad thing.

      But what I found really killing during the actual exam are ‘obscure concept’ questions, where they ask you something that I had no memory of reading about. For that it might be useful to use the curriculum books end of chapter questions.

      Thanks for the tips @christine and @Sophie
      I hope that the 3654 questions that they have cover even the most obscure concepts.

      3654 questions = about 30.5 exam sessions.

      I did use it for level l, but I specialized in finance for my undergraduate so most of the material was familiar. Level ll has new stuff.

      I’m a believer in q bank. The ability to create exams over and over again is great.
