CFA Level III Study Prep

Hey monkeys,

The time is coming up quickly. The CFA exam is in 6 weeks. Does anybody have any advice in regard to studying for the multiple choice portion of the CFA Level III exam? The CFA Institute doesn't seem to post the afternoon (multiple choice) portion of past exams. How are you guys studying the multiple choice portion? I saw that CFAI has an online Q Bank now.

Any thoughts would be helpful.

Thanks!

Hi there.

I am doing the online Q bank and EOCs so far. From next weekend onwards, I'll start doing old and new afternoon mocks as well. I can't imagine where else to get MCQs. I've mostly been focusing on the morning questions for the last 3ish weeks.

Thanks for the heads up on CFAI having an online Q-bank. I didn't know that. I'm studying for the multiple choice by going through 1,000+ Schweser Q-Bank questions. I'm taking a few weeks off before the exam to do four or five Schweser mock exams and the CFAI mock exam.

CFA Level III Mnemonics (Originally Posted: 03/25/2018)

2018 Level III Candidate here just looking for some study help/tips!

Fortunately, there are not too many equations that I've come across on LIII relative to LI and LII but I was hoping someone might have some good mnemonics on some of the sections (PWM, Econ, AA, FI, and Risk) that do have some heavy equations/multi-step equations. Additionally, if anyone has any good study tips outside of Google Docs/Notes, Concept Checkers, flashcards, Q-Banks quizzes, etc. I would welcome that.

Thanks!
