        We’ve just released a set of cram/review videos for Level I. The full set is under 60 mins. We wanted to get your feedback on this new content. It comes free with the Passed Tense Level I Adapt exam engine, which starts at $45 for unlimited practice exams for 7 days (other free stuff includes a formula sheet and printable mock exams). PM me and I can give you an additional discount coupon.

        Let me know if you watch the videos all the way through, as we value the feedback!

        I have so far only gotten one response from a candidate in Germany who watched it last week:

        “YOU GUYS ARE UNBELIEVABLE!!!
         đź™‚
         
        The videos and the formula sheet are great!!!
        They save so much time!
        Thanks a lot!”

          Thank you for the feedback! It’s going to be getting a substantial upgrade after this exam sitting to look like our Level II alpha product, so if you know anyone who will be taking Level I in December or next year, let them know it’ll even be better for them.

          Our recommendation is to keep taking Adapt exams until you get to an Earned Level 7. Then take the two printable mock exams to recreate the exam experience. If you are over 70% on both of those, you should be able to go into the exam with confidence!

          We are in process of writing more questions. If you think any sections are not a strong as you’d expect, let us know and we’ll bulk up those sections with new/more questions.

            @paulpassedtense I have just baught one of the packages. I have checked the formula worksheet, the calculator instructions video and a simple Adapt quiz and so far everything seems to be well prepared and helpfull. I am going to run a 50 questions quiz now to test it further but first impression is really good!

            Thank you so much for this.

              I want to get the 7 day pass to crank out the 2 mocks you offer and to watch the cfa in 60 min. How do the 2 mocks I’ll pay for match up to the free trial one?

                Glad you’re happy with your subscription! 

                We target 6 to be exam difficulty. Real exams, of course, an vary with harder and easier questions, so 6 is meant to be an average of what the actual exam is like. The Mock exams were written to be an accurate recreation of the actual exam, so ~6.

                In order to ensure the greatest “feel” for what is an accurate exam-quality question, we take substantial input from our staff who have taken level I within the last two years. We also had several dozen 300 Hours forum users test it out from December-February and give us great feedback. The feedback from people who have taken Level I previously is that they are an accurate equivalent to the real exam.

                Feel free to send us any more feedback you have!

                    Time never an issue.  I actually need to slow down.  Finish with about 20 min left.

                      Thanks for the question!

                      Adapt is a question bank with over 2,400 questions. It also is the only Adaptive bank, which means questions get harder and harder as you progress to the point of being able to pass the exam. The average user can generate about 20 unique 3-hour exams.

                      Adapt also comes with a bunch of goodies, see below to see the dashboard. This includes a newly designed formula sheet, as our team was not content with the ones they saw available elsewhere.

                      Here’s a coupon for 15% off that will be available for this sitting: 300HOURSFORUM

                      Let me know how you’re enjoying Adapt!

                        Ive been using the Adapt Beta L2 stuff this week and I am impressed so far…I appreciate this is the L1 forum, but in general their stuff seems like high quality.

                          I did the free trial mock and got an 80. It seemed easy but with some foreign looking questions which is expected.  I’m assuming that one is built to be less difficult?

                            I don’t plan on slowing down my studying though. I’m at 585 hours right now of solid study time. Made it this far and I don’t want to let anything slip these last two weeks. Go hard or go home buddy! I like your lavender idea though.  This stuff can be stressful.  Great Rolla coaster ride!

                                Thank you for the offer. Could you please give a bit more details on your 14-day package and what it includes? Also an additional discount coupon will be more than welcome. 🙂

                                Thanks.

                                    The Initial exam is at a difficulty level of 3. In our system, ~6 is average exam difficulty. So the initial exam you took is fairly easy. The printable mock exams are harder – they are meant to be exam difficulty (~6-7). I personally think the questions on the mock exams are our highest quality questions – they also have gotten quite a substantial amount of review by 300 Hours users before we released them with Adapt.

                                      never mind @passedtense it says right on your site 40+ hours. I am thinking of getting your 7 day access this Friday and then cramming through all your lectures and then using your 2 mocks as well as my last Schweser mock to top off my studying. I have pretty much gone through my schweser curriculum front to back at this point with only 500 questions left in my qbank. Ill burn through those by Friday though and then I am left with a single schweser mock. That’s why I am thinking of bringing you in for some last week reinforcement and a couple extra mocks. What you think of the plan? I took off the whole week before the test so I have time on my side to cram through your material.

                                        You sound like you’re going to be really prepared for the exam! 

                                        Adapt comes with the 60 min review video. Our full video lesson product has over 41 hours of video. That is not including in Adapt but in our Bundle or Video Lesson subscriptions. We do have two full sections for free on Youtube though.

                                        Your plan sounds very good. Given the breadth of materials, going through it all again at least at a high level is a good idea. That’s why we created the 60 minute overview video, to help remind you of the major subjects. Another important feature is the formula sheet. Spend the time to get really familiar with it and then you can use it to remind yourself of key parts right before the exam or during the break.

                                        In that last week before the exam we would recommend you err on the side of more practice exams than on more studying (reading/watching). Your brain will hold tighter to those things you had to solve. Then you can focus on doing deep dive studying on the sections you need more help on (sections you’re low on and also ones that have more questions like FRA and Ethics).

                                        Also be sure to lighten up on the heavy studying if you feel its stressing you out too much. Getting through the day is a effort of mental endurance that requires a rested and peaceful (as much as possible) mind. I’ve recently started smelling some lavender essential oils to help my mind relax and refocus. It also does wonders for relieving headaches! Its something I never would have tried until my wife had me do it, but now I’m convinced.

                                        How have you been doing in terms of time on your mocks? Finishing within 3 hours easily?

                                            @paulpassedtense, Rented your product for 30days two weekends ago, love it, great overall no complaints whats so ever. I strongly recommend it for last min… questions/ exams and cant beat the price. Also question what difficult based on your scale (1-10) is the printable mock exam.
