CFA Level 1 Hacks

Our CFA Level 1 Hacks will enable you to prepare more effectively for your CFA Level 1 exam.

When you think about your CFA Level 1 exam, are you:

  • Confused about the best ways to study for your upcoming CFA Level 1 exam?
  • Fed-up with not getting the desired results on your practice exams and end of study session questions?
  • Can’t seem to stay focused and concentrated on complicated study topics and required concepts?
  • Feel like you won’t have enough time to properly study the required materials before the exam?
  • Annoyed at having to rewrite the exam a second or a third time?
  • Fed-up with spending your money on a variety of courses, seminars, books and study notes that lead you nowhere?
  • Stressed about the approaching exam date?

The truth is: You’re Not Alone!

Whether you are writing your exam for the first time or re-writing it again, these are the challenges and difficulties most candidates face when studying for their CFA Level 1 exam.

We know this firsthand because we’ve been there before. Passing the CFA exams is more like running a marathon than a sprint. Preparing for the CFA Level 1 exam requires not only discipline and commitment, but also the understanding of where to guide your energy,  which topics to study more and which topics to cover less.  CFA Level 1 curriculum is complex. The material is spread over 6 books, thousands pages and thousands exercises. First time and second time candidates can definitely by overwhelmed.

Study more effectively

To help you get a grip on what is required for the exam and make you feel confident that you will be able to cover all the essentials and master the most important formulas and concepts, we designed a unique toolkit to help you pass the CFA Level 1 on your first attempt.

We understand that there is already an important authoritative source of information to help you prepare for the CFA exam such as the Schweser Notes and CFA’s own books. For this reason, we did not create yet another similar guide. Instead we separated all the content from the CFA curriculum in three main sections and narrowed down to the most important and critical issues that you need to master in order to pass the CFA Level 1 exam.

You will finally understand the crucial concepts and relationships between different factors that will help you feel prepared and comfortable on the exam day.

In your CFA Level 1 Hacks each topic of the curriculum is separated in to three components: Formulas, Definitions and Concepts. This enables you to understand and review the material quickly and better budget your time between memorizing and understanding concepts. Your CFA Level 1 Hacks covers the most important and difficult concepts of the CFA curriculum. In order to save you time, we don’t elaborate on the concepts that most candidates already know such as Time Value (for example).
