Level II material providers, prep start date
I passed Level I and am getting my Level II plans together. I relied on Schweser for 95% of my prep (used CFAI mat'l for a bit of ethics). From what I gather, relying on Schweser exclusively for Level II is not always recommended. I'll get the hard copy of CFAI mat'ls (since it's what? Only another $50 or so?) and go with Schweser again. May go for a package with videos to hammer down some of those trickier topics.
I'm primarily getting the CFAI hard copy materials for the EOC questions which I did NOT use for Level I but likely would have benefited from using. Schweser impressed me for Level I, thorough enough, and the Q-Bank was extremely useful.
1) Anyone care to share their opinion/experience on going exclusively Schweser vs. mix of CFAI and Schweser?
2) Opinions of Schweser videos?
I'll also be deciding how many hours of prep I need and when I should start studying. I spent 320 - 330 hours on Level I and did okay (40/60/80 score of 66%, min of 59.6% max 77.1%). I imagine scheduling 400-500 hours for Level II, starting in October or November.
