Looking for the best study materials for Course 2
I know these are the 3 textbooks in the Course 2 Syllabus:
Principles of Corporate Finance, Brealey
Price Theory and Application, Landsburg
Theory of Interest, Kellison

Also get the texts and read them. Especially Price Theory and Corporate Finance.

Any advice on CSM vs ASM anyone?

Without a doubt, CSM. I used the CSM in combination with the texts.

i would suggest the csm study guides just for the large amount of old questions. i used the temple pack for interest theory and finance. i found the interest theory one was really helpful as i never learned any of that material before. i learned most of the stuff without having to refer to the text too much.
i also highly suggest reading the micro and finance books. the micro is fairly easy to follow. corp. finance may seem too much at first. i skimmed it over in the beginning because i was falling asleep so much whenever i would read it.
but later i went through each chapter and took notes. it actually wasn't too bad. i got my score report today and got a 10. if i had just used the temple finance study guide alone and the csm outlines for the finance part i don't think i would have done as well.
Everyone seems to be saying the csm manual is very good along with the texts. And that the micro study note is terrible. What should I use to study the macro part?? I heard that there is not a lot of macro questions, like only 5. Is there any truth to this??

The texts and the CSM manual get my vote as well. Get the CSM Supplement too though - its full of problems and doing lots of problems is the key to passing. There are usually 7 or 8 Macro questions. ANY study manual is better than the Wachtel study note. But frankly, I would concentrate more on old exam problems for the Macro because there is a lot of material but they seem to ask a lot of the same types of questions.
