IB analyst 2 is right

Knopman Marks course + study book. Each exam will take about a week of prep if you study full time. All the banks I know of used Knopman Marks.

knopman is great, I passed the SIE, 79, and 63 in less than two months using the program (while being fully staffed on deals)

I’m going to need the lord for this, thanks for reminder

You just gotta stay consistent, I did STCUSA’s program, took me 3 weeks to study for each. The practice exams coupled with the on demand videos are going to be more impactful in terms of learning then the book. That’s what worked for me. Book just wastes time compared to the videos if you ask me

Agreed, go with knopman. Try not to lose it over all of the grammar errors lol

Knopman for sure

Thank you everyone, I wish you well in your deals !!

Burn through practice problems, that is all

I’m in IB only 1 YOE.

How hard is it to go from IB > into corp dev > and then back into IB later if I preferred IB?

My gut feeling is that I should just stay in IB for as long as possible and only leave until I truly feel ok with the possibility of never working in IB again.

But, I feel like I’m going to plateau here eventually and I have a desire to move to nyc and to a bigger bank but I’d have to start as a first year analyst. Could use some advice on the tradeoffs.
