THANK YOU!! You just made me very happy:)
wow! this is good! thanks.
Visit www.soleadea.org as a free resource of extra mock exams to get comfortable with the format itself. Those tests are prepared by professionals and the guys who developed this preparation guide are always ready to help. They clarified some of the confusion I had even after reading the books and browsing a bunch of blogs.
I had a chance to look at what Soleadea offered and wanted to take a moment and thank you, guys, for such a great effort to "maintain and improve the professionalism of others". The new portal is, in my opinion, a more reliable source of practice compared to browsing blogs that provide material ranging in degrees of accuracy.Keep it up, guys, keep it up!
Awesome site... they also have lovely slide presentations on some of the topics. I'm sitting for the Dec exam and trust me I will be a regular in this website...
Thank you! The presentation is very well done and will definitely be helpful.
Studying Process – Am I missing something?
To achieve better results in the exam, it is important to make use of BOTH passive and active learning:
Reading study materials
Watching video lectures
Listening to podcasts
Mailing with tutors
Studying in groups
The most challenging obstacle to passing the CFA exam is the QUANTITY of study materials and not their difficulty. Hence, a good study plan and a proper review process are of key importance. Both of them will help to improve the so-called learning curve and forgetting curve (concepts originally stated by Hermann Ebbinghaus in the 19th century).
How to overcome the Forgetting Curve
Apply one simple rule. Review systematically each portion of material you've studied:
reviews: just after learning, on the next day, in the next week, in 1 month's time or later
To enhance the review process, our study materials have the following features:
average length of a video lecture is 12 minutes; test app allows to generate smaller or larger sets of questions and to choose different levels of difficulty; CFA formulas app enables filtering by topics, readings and importance; our portal is mobile friendly, so you can review on the go
