I am actually going through Creighton University, but I see that as mainly for the Master degree, not to prepare for being a Charterholder. My main focus is via Schweser, which I already have. I might also use Elan also. The videos on Schweser could turn an insomniac into a narcoleptic! I find the Elan videos are much better and keep you more focused. FYI, there are free videos for Quant and FRA on their website, if you just make an account at no cost. I just do not have feedback yet on the Elan quizzes and other offerings.
@Zee at first I bought prep materials because my pen would go right THROUGH the el-cheapo CFAI razor-thin pages. RAGEQUIT! Then, I kept ordering to see who had the best lectures –it quickly got out of hand. I figure if I’m going to take this test twice, I might as well have it all on one shelf. haha
@psh33942 some providers lack in certain areas. However, Allan’s audio lectures are the best of the lot (along with its FRA problem set videos).
OK, back to reviewing accounting fictions & bond legalese.
I used both schweser and elan for Level I and just elan for Level II.
For level I, i found the practice questions offered by elan better than Qbank of schweser. They were tough and conceptual and very much exam-like so to speak. I wasted a pretty good bit of my time early on in doing Qbank but then i switched. The study guides were more or less same of both the providers. Didn’t watch any videos.
For level 2, i just used study guides of elan and their selected videos. Elan’s readings of FRA and FI were simply brilliantly written and recorded. I also practiced like crazy and solved all the CFAI EOCs twice.
