The CFA® Designation

The CFA level I exam is the first of a series of three rigorous exams that must be sat and passed sequentially. The right to use the CFA designation is only granted once a member has passed all the three exams and satisfied work experience requirements as specified by the institute. Candidates can sit for the CFA Level 1 exam in June or December, but CFA Level II and III exams are offered exclusively in June. All the three exams are offered in English only.

Tips To Help You Crack The CFA Exams

  • Start your prep early. The CFA exams are a marathon and require an extreme level of dedication.
  • Go through your notes at least twice. The first time around, you learn the concepts, but the second time you read the notes, you solidify your understanding of the CFA Curriculum.
  • Pay attention to CFA exam weightings. For example, the Level I exam puts a lot of weight on Ethical and Professional Standards and a lot less on Alternative Investments.
  • Always use end-of-chapter practice questions and AnalystPrep quizzes. The CFA Institute does not give out a lot of information. Therefore, you should supplement your studies with a CFA QBank to better your chances of passing the exam.
  • Be sure to take at least four mock exams. Time yourself and try to answer as many questions as possible in the three-hour timeframe given to you. Then, spend extra time reviewing your wrong answers and going back to the CFA Study Notes if required.

“Thanks to your program I passed the first level of the CFA exam, as I got my results today. You guys are the best. I actually finished the exam with 45 minutes left in [the morning session] and 15 minutes left in [the afternoon session]… I couldn’t even finish with more than 10 minutes left in the AnalystPrep mock exams so your exams had the requisite difficulty level for the actual CFA exam.”

“Before I came across this website, I thought I could not manage to take the CFA paper alongside my busy schedule at work. But with the up-to-date study material, there is little to worry about. The Premium package is cheaper and the questions are well answered and explained. The question bank has a wide range of examinable questions extracted from across the whole syllabus. Thank you so much for helping me pass my first CFA papers.”
