Wall Street Prep Exam - FT Analyst Training

Hi everyone,

As part of my banks FT Analyst training programme commencing this summer, incoming Analysts are required to complete four courses and their respective exam on Wall Street Prep (WSP) before the training commences. We have c. 1 month to complete these courses and exams. 

I was wondering if anyone has completed these exams before and / or has gone through a similar process and has advice on how to expedite the process of completing these courses/exams (e.g. how much study is required, tips for the exam, difficulty of the exam etc...)

Thanks in advance everyone

Lol just watch the videos double time since the exams are true to what's in the videos. On the accounting possibly spend a bit more time reviewing, but overall they aren't to bad. If you take notes on key points you should be golden.

The questions (in my case) are all multiple choice. If this was the same for you, were the questions mainly memory recall style questions, or applied/involved questions which require calculations and a working knowledge of (for example) the accounting adjustments? Thanks
