Level III CFA® Exam Study Packages

Level III Study Packages

Level III of the CFA® exam requires demonstration of the same skills as Level II but tests your ability to make and write about judgment calls. The constructed response section of the Level III exam is the biggest difference between the previous levels. You must answer open-ended questions that do not have multiple-choice questions. The historical pass rate is 56%. Our study packages include the tools you need to master every Learning Outcome Statement and practice your ability to answer constructed response questions. Choose one of Kaplan Schweser's industry leading study packages below, or compare your package options.

Premium Packages for the Level III CFA® Exam

Your exam preparation begins with a personalized Activity Feed that schedules weekly tasks based on your study time frame and exam date. Each task is strategically placed to follow our proven study plan that covers the entire curriculum. Begin preparing for your exam by reading SchweserNotes, practicing the concepts with integrated quizzes from the SchweserPro QBank, and learning from CFA Program instructors in your OnDemand classes. Once you’ve learned the material, test your performance with our Mock Exams to measure your readiness for the actual CFA exam.

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.
