Best exam materials for doubling down
After a bit of advice from those experienced in the CII financial planning exams on the best and most efficient way to tackle them. I've got R01 booked in for June which preparation is going well for. I'm using the Brand FT study notes and question pack which, so far, seems to be a good addition to slogging through the study texts. Initially I had just planned to stick to the DipPFS to begin with however reading around it seems a common consensus that if you have ultimate ambitions of achieving APFS it makes sense to double up on certain exams at the same time.
With that in mind I'm planning on running R02, J10, J12 and AF4 together for the October date and then R04, J05, AF7 and AF8 together next year. Does anyone with experience of Brand FT know what the best combination of study materials would be to succeed in both of these endeavours? I don't want to shell out for study texts, questions and calculation books for 4 exams if the majority is just going to be repeats.
