      There on the website?  I haven’t seen them.  Can attach link?  I’ll take one and let you know.  I have taken 6 practice sessions in Schweser but that’s it,  3 am and 3 pm.

      You have to log in to your own CFAI account and go to “Candidate Resources” – then “Online Practice Tests”.

      I never realized they gave a mock.  That’s awesome.  Thanks for reminding me!

      They give both “online practice tests” and “mock exams”….. Two full mock exams I believe. Make sure you do both mocks and all online practice test sections…

      I believe you can do a bunch (not just one) of the “practice tests” and the “mock exams”… worth it?good/bad?

      Yes absolutely 100% worth it….CFAI mocks and practice tests, along with the curriculum End of Chapter questions should be your number 1 priority in terms of practice questions. Schweser do a decent job at level 1 but their questions aren’t exactly like the ones the CFAI produce…

      I’m so torn over what I should do at this point.  I’m scoring high 70s low 80s on Schweser mocks. During weekdays Ive been just rewatching Schweser on demand lectures, all of them in order to basically recover all readings once, followed by a full 6 hr Schweser mock on saturday, sunday is day off. I’m not sure if I should be doing more mocks and questions rather than rewatching the lectures. With only a month left I think my main priority should be getting those cfai tests done first rather than these videos.  Any input? Seems like I have time but I really don’t.  I have a 3 day workshop in Boston may 8 9 and 10. Then I’m doing the live mock in Boston too with BSAS.

      I think you would be mad to do even one more Schweser mock until you have done ALL CFAI online practice tests available, and you should REALLY make sure you do both CFAI mock exams in the next 2-3 weeks….then go over them in painstaking detail. Make sure you have done all CFAI end of chapter questions, and all CFAI “blue box” examples.

      Remember Schweser are not the CFAI, they do their best to emulate the kind of questions you will see in the real exam, but they don’t get the style quite right.

      You are taking an exam written by the CFAI….you should try to eat up any and all CFAI written practice/mock questions.

      believe me, you’ll thank me come exam time…

      Does anybody know if the CFAI mock exams are in pdf format that can be downloaded? I remember reading this somewhere but can only see the online mock exam in candidate resources…

      Ya it’s annoying how you can’t print them.  Well you can. .but copy and pasting.
