Completing the Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) exams and obtaining the CFA designation is not an easy walk in the park. It’s more like climbing the Mont Everest. It takes months (and sometimes years) of not only mental but also physical and emotional preparation and dedication.

Only through tears and struggles that most people really pass the three examinations and become charterholders. With passing rates as low as 43% for the latest June 2016 Level I exam, its not surprising that most people do not finish the program and abandon it altogether after numerous attempts.
