  • CFA is very easy to crack with good dedication and channelized efforts. If you make a good study plan and stick to it, nothing is going to impossible to work along. CFA preparation can either be offline, i.e)self-study or classes or online i.e) by taking online classes or courses. Both the media are equally good but you definitely need to make the best of both. The syllabus for CFA is huge and is very tough to deal with if your a working professional. You need to have the right kind of balance with your study and work environment. You definitely need to have a solid plan before you start your preparation. Here are some tips which can help you during the preparation:

    Prepare Intelligently

    Don't leave any topic

    Use CBOK

    Learn to use the calculator wisely

    Strategize your preparation

    Manage distractions

    Practice! Practice!!!

    Keep track of time while preparing


    Pamper Yourself! EAT healthy.

    You can refer to these online courses also during your prep:> This will help you understand CFA structure and the exam itself completely.> This helps you to master Portfolio Management from scratch.

    All the best!!

    I believe video lectures of Irfanullah will definitely help you. It thoroughly covers complete syllabus and also makes it real easy to understand the concepts. I definitely prefer it over Schweser considering that you must have basic understanding of few topics before you can refer Schweser.

    You can send a mail to [email protected]. They have all the material related to CFA level 1 at really very cheap price. They also provide Schweser CFA material at lowest prices.

    I really struggled when I referred other study materials including Kaplan/Wiley. Trust me Irfanullah sir lectures did wonders for me.

    I got complete series of Irfanullah lectures(2016) for Rs 1500-2000(usually costs more than 15000–20000).
