no fastway..just fight a bunch of random battles...between the storyline battles..and before the end you should have your major characters at level 99.....

I find Ramza the easiest to get to 99 first. Gained Exp Up (from the Calculator class), Yell himself to 50 speed, Accumulate to 99 PA, Scream for a while until the long animation annoys you too much, then win the battle and do it again. The second time should get you there.

--be sure to go into options and turn off "show jp gained" and "show xp gained."--

Once I have a lvl 99 character, I like Punch Art to level up other units, namely Spin Fist and Chakra. They're fast animating and you can alternate them endlessly. Just be sure the lvl 99 isn't wearing a mantle.

This is boring. But it's fast.

Remember, there's no particular reason to get to lvl 99. Your stat growth diminishes with higher levels, the plot battle enemies don't get nearly that leveled, and the random enemies adjust themselves to you, so the only reason to get to lvl 99 is if your neurotic about it, in which case you shouldn't have any problem spending an evening doing repetitive xp farming.

I like yelling Ramza's speed up to 50, then having him steal gil repeatedly while a group of mimes help surround the enemy.

It takes longer than stealing, say, experience, but it takes care of money for a long time after that. And it levels up the mimes with crazy mime stats.

Efficiency, baby!

That information can be found in the Holy Battle Mechanics Guide:
http://www.gamefaqs.com/console/psx/file/197339/3876


Here's a brief about stat growth:

There is the most variation between classes in HP, MP, and PA. All the generic classes but two have the same Speed growth (Thief and Ninja have better) and all but one generic class has the same MA growth (Mime has better).

Hit Points: Mime has the best growth, followed by Monk, then Knight, Priest (!), Geomancer, and Lancer.

Magic Points: First Summoner, then Wizard, then Priest, Time Mage, Oracle, and Calculator.

Speed: Ninja is best, then Thief, then all other generic classes are tied. Ramza has better than average speed growth in his base class but not as good as Thief.

Physical Attack: First Mime, then Knight and Lancer, then Ninja, then Archer, Geomancer, and Samurai.

Magic Attack: First Mime, then all other generic classes are tied. Ramza's base class has slightly better than average MA growth.

Overall:

Mime - Best for HP, PA, and MA, spending lots of levels in Mime can make for a fierce meleer, including those that use MA-based sets like Elemental and Draw Out. Mimes, however, have the lowest MP growth so the class doesn't make good training for standard mages (Mathematicians, however...).

Knight/Lancer - Good for PA and HP, and a fair sight easier to open up and use in combat than Mime.

Ninja - Best for Speed and good for PA. Poor HP and MP, though. Good for characters that prize speed above all, like Mustadio or your Stealers.

Priest - Well-rounded, with decent growth in all areas. A bit weak on PA, but the best PA of the mage classes.

Summoner - If all you care about is MP, this is the way to go.

Ramza's Squire class - not bad in any department, and slightly above average in the rare areas of Speed and MA.
