But before we made it happen, we spent 10 years teaching people finance and observing how they learn. When starting our professional activity in education, we were naive enough to believe that our students are all finance freaks who would just study and never stop until they pass their exams. But soon we found out that’s not how it works.
There were all sorts of students: with the overconfident and ignorant at one end of the spectrum and the anxious or unsure of their abilities on the other. But what was common about them all was that these were not abilities they lacked. Their success always depended on their attitude.
That’s when we realized the saddest things of all:
the whole CFA learning business focuses
on hard skills development only.
They teach you how to calculate the IRR. They tell you how to manage a portfolio. But they never explain how to cope with your exam preparation as a whole.
We set about to change that.
As we watched our students, it was becoming a sure thing to us that the holistic approach is needed here. Too many smart students failed ‘cos they didn’t know how to cope their preparation process, not CFA study content. It is clear to us that they would have succeeded if their CFA exam prep hadn’t been uncontrolled, unexecuted, and unproductive.
This is why we devised this exceptional growth attitude to CFA exam prep with CFA study planner at its core.
Based on 3 pillars of control, motivation, and knowledge retention, it helps you:
manage your CFA exam prep,
execute your CFA study plan,
truly learn while you study.
