      Well, me again. Looks like I’m a bit over active on this forum at the moment.

      This one relates to Allen CFA – An app that seems to pop up quite a bit in the Apple store. Has anyone used this and what do we think? They don’t seem to be asking for an awful lot of money in all honesty;- a shade under $38 for 6 months of access to their Level I testbank of 6,378 “CFA 2014 / 2015” questions.

      Of course everyone will have their favourites, such as Schweiser and Elan 11th Hour. But more specifically in this case for a (very) cheap package, has anyone actually got experience of this App / Product / Company and what do we think of the offer?

      Cheers,

      Ben

      Hi @Maverick‌ /Ben, I haven’t used Allen myself, but have heard of quality consistency issues at times, in terms of updating of content. 

      Any one else tried/tested them before? Would love to hear more.

      Thanks @Sophie. They just seem ridiculously cheap when compared to the other mainstream providers out there.

      Perhaps I’ll have a punt with my $38 and let you all know. They are touting the testbank as being 2014/15, and it’s only a few $$$

      I’ve used it – and yes, there are certainly issues of consistency of content. For Level I I don’t think it’ll be an issue though – just use it as practice and don’t take what is said as gospel. 

      For price – they have frequent sales. I think I got mine for £6.99 each time (and at that price, it’s a steal).

      Nice one @BeanCounter‌.

      Out of interest (and this is perhaps one that the Mods might know), are there any others out here in the UAE studying for the CFA L 1 that are out here in the emirates and registered on 300h? Might be worth trying to get a little study group together.

      @CFAcharterwannabe‌ is in UAE, although he just attempted the CFA L1 in June 2014…

      I’ve seen their YouTube videos before. They were pretty outdated and not v useful…
