Level I CFA® Exam Study Packages

Level I Study Packages

Level I of the CFA® exam tests knowledge and comprehension of investment tools and ethical and professional standards. The curriculum mainly focuses on recalling formulas and definitions from memory, and most of the material is a straightforward introduction to the concepts covered. But, don’t let this fool you. The historical pass rates for the Level I exam are the lowest of all three levels with only 42% of candidates passing. Our packages combine multiple study tools and access to an exclusive community forum to help you learn the material and apply your knowledge to exam questions. Choose one of Kaplan Schweser's industry leading study packages below or compare your package options.

PremiumPlus™ Packages  for the Level I CFA® Exam

This all-inclusive study package contains the same Core + Instruction + Review tools found in the Premium Package, but allows you to select a Live Online option for your Instruction and Review. Learn, ask questions, and engage with expert instructors in a live classroom environment with a set schedule…providing structure and guidance to your CFA study plan.

*Please note, all components may not be available at time of purchase. For more information, see product availability.

eBook versions are available for SchweserNotes, Schweser's Secret Sauce®, and QuickSheet. Our study packages now include both print and eBook options at no additional cost. Learn more about our eBooks, accessed through VitalSource®, on our FAQ page.
Our OnDemand class covers all the topical areas as a live class but allows you to learn on your schedule with 50 hours of OnDemand classes. You also get five instructor-led live online workshops providing the opportunity to ask questions and work complicated practice problems.

Our live online classes give you virtual access to our expert instructors regardless of your location. Classes are held at a specified time and recorded for later viewing if you are unable to attend.

Our in-person classes are held in select locations and provide the opportunity for those who learn best in a traditional classroom environment to engage with an expert instructor.
There are a lot of opinions out there on what makes a good study plan—simply because what works for one individual does not mean it will work for another.

We create packages and materials based off of data and insights from the hundreds of thousands of candidates we’ve helped pass the CFA exam over the past 30+ years. The Activity Feed (included in all packages) provides you with strategically placed weekly tasks to form a comprehensive study plan that covers the entire curriculum. We recommend sticking to this plan as closely as possible and using the Performance Metrics to understand which topics you’ve mastered and which need additional practice.

We also recommend using the month prior to exam day strictly for review. Attend a Review Workshop, read Schweser's Secret Sauce®, and take a mock exam to gauge your readiness.

The Premium Package is our recommended package. We’ve spent the last 30 years understanding what makes CFA Program candidates successful and improving our offerings to align with those needs. The Premium Package includes our most important tools and it is designed in accordance with how candidates prefer to study.

No two candidates are alike, which is why we also offer the PremiumPlus and Essential Packages. The PremiumPlus package was designed for candidates who enter the CFA Program without an extensive background in investments or finance and prefer a structured class. The Essential Package is perfect for the candidate that has a strong understanding of the curriculum but needs to learn and/or refresh themselves with the curriculum.
