Level I WindsorWeek Details

  • Diagnostic Pre-Test: This 45-minute self-exam will be given when you register at WindsorWeek. The exam will not only provide a kick-start to your week, but it will also give you a baseline for your CFA® exam preparation.
  • Major Concept Reviews: Held during select evening sessions, instructors will provide you with several problems relating to designated Concept Review topics. After working through the problems, the instructor will then review the problems with you and answer any questions. The Concept Reviews are intended to provide an active learning environment, which will improve retention of topics discussed during the daytime lectures.
  • Participant-Driven Review: The name says it all. This is not a Q&A, but rather an open-ended review where you, the students, get to suggest the topics of discussion for each session.
  • Strength Assessment Third-Length Mock Exam: The popular end-of-the-week exam is 2.5 hours, constituting a third-length CFA mock exam. Topic coverage weights and difficulty will be as close to the CFA exam as possible to give you a realistic sampling of the actual exam.

As a traveler, what are some important things for me to know?

Canadian law requires that all persons entering Canada carry both proof of citizenship and proof of identity. A valid U.S. passport, passport card, or NEXUS card satisfies these requirements for U.S. citizens. Non-U.S. citizens: Please check with your travel agent to determine what documentation (passport, visa, etc.) will be required for entry to the U.S. and Canada. We strongly urge any candidates traveling by air to secure a passport.

Important Links:


Enjoy a choice of residential housing in Alumni Hall on campus or a room at the Waterfront Hotel Downtown Windsor (approximately 3 km/2 miles from the University of Windsor). Many people find they get the greatest benefit from the Windsor program by staying on campus.

Paulette L., 2013 Level I

You get the opportunity to go through every section, so you have the ability to get questions answered, as well as how to prepare for that section of the exam. That was very useful and definitely helped with my final preparations prior to the exam.
