    I’m preparing for Level 2 and have bought the Schweser online mock exam and the BSAS mock exam. I’ll also be doing the CFAI mock exam, of course. Do you have any suggestions for buying additional mock or practice exams? I see that I can buy a set of 3 from Schweser, without having to buy any of their other products. Do the other test prep companies (7 City, Elan etc) offer such an option?

    Hello @Shantala, welcome to the community!

    Your question is timely. I’ve been on the look out for more practice papers for our members too, since this discussion with @Ajfinance.

    For Level II, since you’ve got BSAS and Schweser, here are other additional options:

    • 7city: They don’t sell it separately (for now). But I’m in the midst of discussion with them on this and it looks promising. So I will come back to you on this ASAP next week, so do come back often to the forum to check for updates.
    • Elan: Yes, they sell 2 sets of mock exam papers with answers for $130 on their website. You need to register with Elan and use the special 300 Hours discount code to get 10% off (so $117 net). It’s listed in Reviews and Offers section, code is 36571664166 at check out.
    • Finquiz – another provider that has 3 full length item set papers, going for $250. Unfortunately we don’t have a discount code for our readers on this, and I’m unable to comment on material quality as I haven’t seen them personally. Perhaps others in the community that have tried it can add to this.

      Hope this helps @Shantala, will revert on 7city asap.

    Wow, Sophie thank you so much for your prompt and very helpful answers! I’ll check out the above items and see which one I want to buy. I’m really glad that this forum exists, I feel more comfortable asking questions here than on the CFA Candidates LinkedIn group.

    No problem @Shantala! Let us know which one you’ve tried, and it would be great to hear your thoughts on the papers too. So we’ll see you around more often in the forum then! 🙂

    @Sophie I hadn’t heard of Finance Train before. Are they the ones you had previously mentioned regarding the IPS questions for Level 3?

    @Ajfinance, unfortunately not. They don’t have Level 3 papers (yet?). I’m hustling BSAS and 7city on Level 3, their papers are of good quality (took time to look through) and hopefully have good news next week…

    Thanks @Sophie 🙂 . I have visited 7 city’s website in the past, they don’t seem to sell Q Bank or Practice exams seperately.

    Yup @Ajfinance, hence I’m trying my super powers on them to do this ;;)

    And off she flies off the building and smacks her face on the ground…. to land in front of 7city’s office building.

    Hi @Sophie, about FinQuiz — I read two comments on AnalystForum from people who had used FinQuiz mock exams to prepare for Level 2 and were impressed positively by it. On their website, it appears to me that the set of 3 mock exams can be bought separately for $100?

    @marc wasn’t too impressed by FinQuiz if I remember correctly. @marc can you comment?

    I didn’t look into the Exams on FinQuiz, so I can’t speak to them.

    Yes @Shantala, it’s a little odd as this page says you can get it for $100, but when you click it it goes to $250. 8-} Not sure why, may have to ask them that question directly?


    @Ajfinance
    , @zee – done! I now am an epic superwoman thanks to @Ajfinance!

    @Ajfinance – you think too highly of me. I was more thinking of using this technique to persuade the prep providers

    @Sophie this technique is my personal favourite.
