      Hello,

      So 178hours in and I have just finished reading all 5 CFA level I books – using Schewser. While reading I would answer example Qs, a couple end of chapter Qs then continue, once I had read the whole book I would spend a week answering all the end of chapter Qs and find out what I had retained/study what I didn’t know. 
      Now that I have finished that process and have covered all the content I need an action plan and hoping for a couple of ideas from you.

      I know I need to do a tone of questions and past exam papers but I would really like to know how others are/have tackled this?

      Thanks in advance.
      Best,
      Terry

      Pretty much this. Doing a few will show you where you need more revision.

      Do you think it is worth doing an exam paper and just learning what I have gotten wrong, then another exam paper etc (what I’m thinking of doing) or does it make more sense to go section by section?

      That’s how I did it. I’m not sure what you mean by section by section.

      Cheers @policedog going to go through the exam papers and learn as I go rather than trying to structure question focus (section by section). However stressing now because my employer is yet to enroll me for the June exam, I’ve been stringed along since Sept 17 after a verbal agreement

      That’s crazy. They’re messing up your pass chances by delaying, they need to decide now or you should aim for Dec.

      Also now have access to the Schweser question bank so plan to answer as many questions as possible between now and exam day

      Good plan. Side note: I’ve only just put it together that you’ve studied all the Schweser books + EOC questions while you weren’t even registered for the CFA exams yet. That’s…badass…?
