      In the next few weeks we (Passed Tense) will be inviting groups of test users to try out our new Adapt Exam Engine for Level II.  (We have Adapt for Level I and it starts at $45).

      Adapt is the only CFA question bank with adaptive learning technology. It “adapts” to your skill level, giving you harder questions as you progress to an Earned Level of 7. Adapt uses credibility theory to adjust the question bank based on user data. We start Adapt as a Free Beta to help train the system to become more accurately adaptive.

      The initial question bank for Level II includes 60 question groups (360 total questions) all uniquely written by a group of various CFA authors to accurately represent questions on the real exam. The questions have all been reviewed by our staff and tested by students studying for Level II.

      Sign up here to get put onto our beta invite list:

      Just completed my first L2 exam on the Passed Tense beta site….very impressed so far! I recommend this to anyone currently studying for L2 – it’s free (for now) and it’s good. Got 70% on first attempt….Paul, would you be able to provide any info regarding where that kind of score put me on a relative basis? Just trying to gauge where I’m at. Cheers 🙂

      Thanks for the feedback @Stuj79!

      How has it compared in difficulty with any other mocks you’ve taken? Have your scores been consistent? I’d really be interested in hearing your analysis.

      For this initial test, all the exams should be at exam quality difficulty. This is normally a difficulty of 6-7 in our system but we first need test data before our credibility model can be established that sets the difficulty – so our system right now may report 4 to 6 as being the difficulty. Scoring over 70% would set you on target to be able to pass the exam, as that should be higher than the Minimum Passing Score that is set for the exam.

      Here’s some info (a bit old but still has valuable info) on Minimum Passing Score for Level II from the 300 Hours blog:

      Your feedback is very valuable, thank you!

      No probs @paulpassedtense :smiley: 

      I have been using a few main providers for my mocks – Finquiz, Konvexity, Schweser, CFAI and now Adapt Prep/Passed Tense.

      I would say my least favourite are Schweser. I can’t quite explain it, but the way they are written just doesn’t feel like the same style as the CFAI stuff; this along with the fact that they are a little too easy/simplistic (in my opion) means I favour them the least.

      Finquiz and Konvexity are both significantly tougher than the Schweser stuff. Finquiz style of questions feels very close to the CFAI style, whereas Konvexity definitely has a different style/syntax – but I believe this is due to the question writer not being a native English speaker. I have been averaging between 55-60% on Finquiz, and around 60-65% on Konvexity.

      I have now completed 2 full mocks on Adapt prep and scored 70% both times – I feel the style of questions are very similar to Finquiz, although I find them a little bit easier. They are similar to the CFAI stuff and of around the same difficulty. As the site is currently in beta, obviously I have come across the odd error here and there (I have sent in about 15 “report question” tickets), but overall a very positive experience so far.

      One comment would perhaps be that the actual text content of the vignettes in Adapt Prep are a little shorter than both the CFAI and Finquiz vignettes – but not massively so.

      For a reasonable price I would definitely consider using Adapt Prep test material in future.

      @Stuj79 
      Thank you for all the question feedback. We’ve gone through and fixed up all the questions you’ve reported.

      We have about 150 alpha testers and going strong. We’re hoping more people sign up for the free Alpha test this week:
