Studying the printed material from CFA Institute is the most effective way to prepare for the CFA exam. Additional materials can be used to supplement the CFA readings. In order to defray the cost, CFA Society of Detroit has partnered with the Schweser study program. Discounts for this program are available to our candidates.
CFA Society Los Angeles (CFALA): Since 1984, CFA Society Los Angeles, Inc. (CFALA), in partnership with the University of Southern California, Marshall School of Business (USC), has offered its Chartered Financial Analyst® (CFA®) Review Program to candidates studying for all three CFA examination levels. For Spring 2017, we offer streaming media recordings of Levels I, II and III. For Fall 2016, we will offer streaming media recordings of our Level I Review Program. Click here for more information.
Prep Providers: Discount information on the Kaplan Schweser program can be found HERE.
Study Groups: Candidates can join an informal study group to help prepare for the exam. Just send us your name, email, phone, level of exam and location and we will put you on the study group list. We will also send you a copy of the list so that you can contact others to set up study sessions, share materials or just bounce questions off of each other.
Tutors: Looking for a tudor? We have compiled a list of CFA Society of Detroit members who are willing to help tutor candidates. If you are stuck on one section of the exam or need help overall, you can contact a tutor for help. Email the office at firstname.lastname@example.org with subject line "Tutor List". Each tutor sets his or her own rate and you will need to contact them directly to set up a mutually beneficial date and time.
Study Materials: Looking for extra study materials? Do you have study materials that you would like to sell? We have compiled a list of materials that candidates no longer need and are looking to sell, including flash cards, study guides, lecture notes, and mock exams. If you are interested in buying items or having your materials added to the list, please email us at email@example.com. (No CFA Institute books please).
Mock Exam: CFA Society Detroit also offers a Mock CFA Exam on a Saturday in May. Please see our events link for further information. For more information please contact the society at firstname.lastname@example.org.
