The key to cracking the CFA exams is practice. Solving practice questions similar to those that appear on the exam, make you familiar with and prepared for the level of difficulty to be expected. It also helps you gain speed in solving the questions.
Speed is of essence on the CFA exam. Remember in the CFA Level 1 exam, you have to answer 120 questions in 3 hours time in each session i.e. an average of 40 questions per hour. Therefore, it is important to be able to solve the questions within the allotted time for each question or else you risk not being able to complete the exam. And missing answering all questions would be a shame, considering there are no negative markings 🙁
CFA study materials such as CFA Study guides and the CFA Institute curriculum books do come with a few practice questions at the end of every chapter but that might prove quite inadequate when it comes to cracking the level 1.
In this post I’m going to review the exclusive practice questions packages offered by Analyst Prep which will help you prepare thoroughly for the exam. So let’s see what’s on offer…..
Analyst Prep offers great options in terms of practice questions and mock exams for CFA Level 1. They have three packages, i.e. free package, Premium Package and Coaching Package.
The free package, which can be availed of by just registering on their site, includes 150 practice questions, video lessons and performance tracking. You can track your performance from your dashboard, individually as well as relative to others, overall and also subject-wise.
But as you can see like any free package this package is also quite inadequate in meeting your practice needs as it offers just 150 questions. If you want the real deal register for the Premium Package. The premium package is paid for no doubt but all good things come with a price tag :-)….and they are always worth your while. This package is also guaranteed to be worth it.
In addition to everything in the free package, the premium package includes 3000+ practice questions, 4 mock exams and unlimited customizable quizzes. That’s all the practice you may want.
In addition to all this the package also includes Comprehensive study notes and formula sheet to boot.
The premium package retails for $129. However at present it is being offered at 10% discount to the loyal readers of this blog.
There is a Coaching Package available too, which in addition to everything in the Premium Package includes 5 hours worth 1-on-1 coaching and a personal study plan. Should you be interested it retails for $599. The 10% discount is applicable. However its not recommended by this blog. CFA exam is not an exam you can crack with just 5 hours worth of coaching.
I can vouch for the effectiveness and usefulness of the Analyst Prep question bank, mock exams and quizzes though as I have myself used them in the course of my own study. The study materials are updated each year to include the latest changes in the curriculum.
If you are a CFA Level 1 aspirant preparing to take the June 2017 exam, I suggest you take advantage of the discount and book your package now. I understand you may not need the practice questions immediately but the discount may not be available later. It’s a great offer….grab it. Trust me its guaranteed to go a long way in ensuring you crack the exam.
Ciao and all the best….
