The objective of this course is to assist you in the final weeks before your CFA Level I exam in becoming “exam ready” by focussing on the key topics, question practice as well as exam technique
- Key topics and question practice:
We will focus on reviewing key topics and item set practice. Class will start with a review of key learning points and move on to a detailed review of the more challenging topics. Your tutor will then set questions on the material just covered under timed conditions to give an idea of the pressure faced by candidates. You will then be given time to go over the answers with the more difficult ones being debriefed by the tutor.
- Exam technique:
Your tutor will also spend time discussing exam technique and the experience of exam day itself. Remember that your tutor has been in your position and has succeeded in passing the exam.
Key topics covered:
- Quantitative Methods – Thursday 11th May, 18:00 – 21:00
- Fixed Income – Friday 12th May, 18:00 – 21:00
