      Hi everyone. I will be attempting Level I in December 2013. I was thinking to start studying from Schweser’s package, but a colleague told me to go with Elan Guides. She just took Level II this June and used materials from both of them. Anyone on this forum has experience with both? Can anyone guide me through? Thanks

      Hi @jack, welcome!

      Quite a few of our forum members use Elan – in general they’re cheaper compared to Schweser but quality is fairly good. I didn’t personally use Elan so I’ll let the others weigh in.

      If you do choose to go with Elan you can use our 10% discount code which will apply onto all your purchases.

      Good luck, and if you have more questions just shoot them here!

      I decided to go all out and get the whole package for Schweser. (admittedly I didn’t hear about Elan until I joined 300). I sold some shares out of my company’s ESPP to pay for it. I’m enjoying it so far. I specifically ordered the package that included the audio books as well since I spend a lot of time in my car commuting to work. That way I can reinforce information that I already read the night before on my morning drive the next day.

      I’ve only been studying for a week–got over 12 hours in already!–so we’ll see how successful it is. At least the notes are digestible, and I like how they’re broken down.

      Sounds like a solid plan @dpittle!

      Hands down, the best audio lectures I’ve heard are from Allen Resources. Also, Peter Olinto has very good videos.
