Study guides come in two formats, those based on the specific Learning Outcome Statements and those that are curriculum-based.

 

Some providers reason that structuring the guides on the specific LOS makes it easier to package the material in shorter pieces.

 

FinQuiz has taken a different approach, developing curriculum-based guides as a complement to the curriculum instead of as a substitute.

 

By following the curriculum, the guides are more condensed and focus on those areas that give candidates the most problems.

 

Some candidates completely ignore the curriculum, opting instead to only read study guides.

 

Granted, this cuts down on the time spent to get through the study material but you are sure to miss some points.

 

As condensed notes, the study guides are not going to include 100% of the testable material in the curriculum.

 

If the guide only hits 90% of the material and the candidate only retains 80% of the guide, then their score is already maxed out at 72%.

 

This is why FinQuiz feels that a complement to the curriculum is more appropriate than a substitute.

Liyang Weng, CFA

Please permit me to share my experience with using your resources and how it helped me to pass my Level II examination at the third attempt even though you have not solicited for it. After using other tutors and failing Level II twice, I was in search of a tuition that would prepare me adequately with the level of difficulty that is expected for the examination. I am glad I decided to trust FinQuiz to help me achieve the much desired success. I think you are the best and yet the most affordable. I am sure I would not have passed but for your rich materials. I entered the examination very confident and I have got my excellent results to show for it. I only wished I used your resources earlier. I do not hesitate to refer others to you. Thank you for the good work you are doing. I am definitely using your materials for Level III and I am sure I would pass at one sitting.

A Scientifically-Proven Way to Study for the CFA Exam

The phrase ‘study smarter, not harder’ is thrown around a lot but candidates may not be taking the advice to heart. Studying upwards of 300 hours for the exam is hard enough but even that may not get you closer to the designation if you’re not retaining the information. You truly do need to master the material in order to recall it on the exam and you won’t be able to do that by just reading through the curriculum.

Ebbinghaus published his hypothesis on the ‘curve of forgetting’ in 1885, describing how we learn and forget information.

The idea is that you learn everything you can about a topic through a study event or lecture but then start to lose the information over time if it’s not reinforced. 

If you do nothing to remember the information, you’ve lost up to 80% of it by the second day and retain just 2% in a matter of 30 days.

The solution is to reinforce the material and commit it to long-term memory by reminding yourself of the key points.

Spending just 10 minutes studying the material the day after a lecture will help boost your memory back to full comprehension.

After that, it takes less time revisiting the material to remember the bulk of the topic.

CFA I

Using this idea in your CFA examination study plan means reviewing the material you study the following day and each week for the next month. Use study notes to review the key points and then do 15 or 20 minutes of practice problems.

Work published in Psychological Science by a Washington University professor on a 2009 study shows that students remember material better when they actively recall it after studying. Instead of just reviewing notes or rereading material, close your book and verbally recite the key points to a topic. Do this just after studying and before reviewing the material.
