From the Author:

CFA Program

The CFA Program is an exhaustive self-study curriculum developing the fundamentals of financial analysis and portfolio management industry. It is designed to broaden and deepen your knowledge of the entire field of investment valuation and portfolio management. The program assumes the candidate has mastered undergraduate finance and accounting and seeks to build a platform for individual and sector analysis, equity and fixed income valuation, and asset management emphasizing competence and integrity within the profession of investment management.


There are no prerequisites to begin this area of study. This can, however, be considered a fairly difficult study if these concepts are totally new to you. AIMR assumes you have mastered undergraduate finance and accounting. Although every effort is made to cover all the material you may encounter at exam time, this book does not get into extreme details in areas that most financial professionals should already know. You may need to supplement this reading with other resources if you are behind in some areas.


Starting with the first question, begin to answer the multiple choice questions that you are sure are correct. If you do not know the exact answer or if it is a choice between two or more answers, mark it gon on. Often later questions will trigger the correct answer to this question for you. (You should have answered at least 50% of the questions with certainty about the answers.)

Return to the beginning and start again on the unanswered questions, do not take time with those you have already answered. If you can narrow a question to two possible answers, pick the best one. Now proceed to the scenario questions.
