I find that Lisa Pollack’s tip on the FT.com Alphaville page was best.
Lie back on your bed, take deep breaths, and repeat to yourself “I don’t have cancer…”
Also good to learn how to harness and control that anxiety to force yourself to become super disciplined in every part of your life to maximise study time and make sure you are at your peak during that time.
I’ve taken two mock exams, the second worse than the first, and I’m reviewing my incorrect answers and hoping to retain the correct knowledge.
I also bought the SchweserPro Qbank and I’ll get around to blasting through that in the final fortnight.
Chillax! Here are some tips which can help you during the preparation:
Don’t leave any topic
Learn to use the calculator wisely
Strategize your preparation
Keep track of time while preparing
Pamper Yourself! EAT healthy.
You can refer to these online courses also during your prep:
goo.gl/Xaivrs-> This will help you understand CFA structure and the exam itself completely.
goo.gl/1SRaHP-> This helps you to master Portfolio Management from scratch.
I agree with you . Preparation is definitely the best tool to handle anxiety. So, practice mocks, clear your doubts , work upon your weaknesses and you are good to go.

I completely agree with the comments above. I spent Dec-May reading Kaplan materials and doing every single end-of-chapter question. Now I’m doing mocks and studying the Q’s I got wrong. Will hope to complete at least 6 mock’s before the exam and feeling more confident each day thats draws near. Big respect to anyone thats done 250-300 hours as well, its gruelling but lets hope its worth it in the end!
