CFASF's Review Program participates in CFA Institute's Prep Provider Guideline Program
The first exam in the CFA® series requires demonstration of a thorough comprehension on a broad range of topics. Disciplined study is needed to master the volume of material to pass this rigorous exam.

Each evening focuses on one topic from the CFA Institute's Study Guides and is accompanied by our proprietary notes and classroom presentations, available in advance online.
