2021 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 43% of candidates passing. Our packages combine multiple study tools to help you learn the material and apply your knowledge to exam questions.
