      Good morning,

      Attached is my day-by-day schedule for Level II next June. In summary, 16-18 hours a week with time built in for breaks. Take first mock exam (of six) in early- to mid-March. I haven’t scheduled the exact days and topics for my second half of review as that will be adjusted as I see which areas I need more time to study. Let me know what you think.

      General order is:

      Ethics
      Alternative Investments
      Quant
      Corporate Finance
      FRA
      Equity
      Fixed Income
      Derivatives
      Portfolio Management
      Economics

      Thanks,

      Le Chiffre

      Without having studied the attached excel file, my only comment would be to perhaps think about studying ethics last. There is little logic to ethics a lot of the times, and it come down to just knowing “this” or “that”. I feel this makes it all the easier to forget  minor details (which are important) if left too long between review and exam.

      I would schedule some time off from the 18th-20th Dec, ya know, for the Star Wars Force Awakens movie :pensive: 

      looks solid. Amazing how you can study that much during the week!

      @Stuj79, We are on the same page. I plan on doing a second full review of Ethics prior to my mock exams and final review.

      @rsparks, 2 hours after work is about my max. And if work is slower I can study there too, which helps tremendously.

      @LeChiffre Do you happen to have Qbank for L2?

      @LeChiffre you must not have the premium schweser package I’m assuming?  They dont even have their on demand lectures released yet, nor their instructor link, qbank or books! I have the ebooks already but I’m holding off so I can follow their recommended strategy as I did on L1
