The purpose of this CFA Candidate's Guide is to give you the information and practice required to pass the CFA Level I exam. It is the first in a series of three exams, in addition to industry experience, needed to obtain the CFA designation. Once you have passed the CFA Level I exam, you are considered to have mastered the basics and the general breadth, but not the depth, of the information necessary to function as an analyst in today's global economy.
The Candidate's Guide Tutorials provides two main sections for each Study Session:
Book / eBook CFA Curriculum, including Concept Checks
Self Help and Interactive Exam Study Aids
You begin your studies with the CFA Curriculum on Page 1. Continue your studies page-by-page; the learning outcome statements (LOS) have been re-ordered, where necessary, to make learning more intuitive than in the CFA Institute's Study Guide. Our concise writing style minimizes learning time, and there are numerous Examples to help you master every LOS. Study Guide command words are boldface in the LOS title; the examiners expect that your knowledge reflects the command word.
It is suggested that you first read the Learning Outcome Statements to get familiar with the section, and answer the Concept Check Questions provided within the program to determine your weakest topics.
Each Specific Study Session question database consists of 70+ multiple choice questions with a level of difficulty and design similar to those on the CFA examination itself. Allow 60 minutes to complete each Adaptive Exam (90 seconds per question). Adaptive Exam questions are unique to The Candidate's Guide Tutorials, so if you have also purchased other Level I Mock Exams (Morning or Afternoon Sessions) rest assured that our Adaptive Exam questions will not be repeated there.
