Hi, I have just signed up for the CFA exam at dec. Been looking to purchase study guides and came across this guide provider named elan guides. Would like to know anyone used it before? Compared to schweser and stalla, it is cheap. And judging from the comments in analystforum, it seems even better than schweser. Any comments would be appreciated. Thanks!

No. Decided to self study. Even though some of the lecturers in Kaplan were previously my lecturers in SIM. Not tt they are lousy, its just that I think attending lectures are really unproductive for me. Just go there, feel slpy, in the end nv listen much. I just bought elan guides to study. I find their video lecture quite good. It is just a alittle bit long, maybe to reinforce some of the concepts.
