Practice Exams, Volumes 1 & 2 (6 Full Exams)

Once you know the concepts, apply the material with 6 full-length practice exams. Identify your problem areas, master the material, and gain the confidence you need to perform your best on the actual CFA exam. Each volume of Practice Exams includes 3 full exams, as well as the Online Performance Tracker, which allows you to compare your scores to other candidates.

Weekly Class (attend live in classroom or live online) with On-Demand Video Lectures

The Schweser Weekly Class, in combination with the On-Demand Video Lectures, offer over 90 hours of blended learning that covers every LOS in the CFA® exam curriculum. Our blended learning approach provides the value of in-person classroom learning with the convenience and flexibility of e-learning.

The On-Demand Video Lectures, designed to be viewed prior to the Weekly Classes, feature lectures covering every LOS. Weekly Classes are offered live online or as live classroom courses in select cities around the world. Our live online classes are archived, so you can review at your own pace.

Although online and in-person learning have their individual advantages, a blended learning approach will increase comprehension and retention as you prepare for the CFA exam.

Having the Schweser weekly online classes, the ScweserNotes, and the Practice Exams really helped me prepare well. In addition, I made great use of the Faculty Email access and found that invaluable whenever I had questions about the curriculum.
