      Just wondering if ethics in level 2 is the same as level 1. they can’t make it ‘more ethical’, surely? Would be useful to know before i start.

      The short answer – no.
      They add more depth, they have a chapter each on soft-dollar standards and research objectivity standards.

      I actually couldn’t really tell – I’ve had plenty of time for Ethics to drop completely out of my head between levels.

      @tim same.
      Sorry but I myself haven’t actually read the ethics chapters. Just thumbed through them when you asked the question and read the short summary I have on them :p

      There is actually quite a lot of synergy in Ethics between levels – this is why we always advise readers to invest a bit more effort into Ethics 🙂

      But like @diya said, it’s not exactly the same – they do go in-depth and touch on new topics, so you can’t just ignore it just because you aced Ethics in the last exam…
