As stated on CFA Institute's Homepage: "The CFA® Program is designed as a self-study program".  "Candidates should be able to succeed on the exams on the exams by studying the CFA Program curriculum readings and mastering the Learning Outcome Statements (LOS). Some candidates, however, may benefit from using prep courses and/or review notes. But these materials should be used as a supplement, not a substitute, for study of the prescribed curriculum."



Our society supports the efforts of local CFA candidates by sponsoring a variety of CFA exam preparation and review opportunities.  Experienced and respected investment practitioners coach candidates on CFA curriculum topics, such as securities analysis and investment valuation, financial accounting, quantitative analysis, economics, asset allocation, and portfolio management. Participation in an organized program can complement the self-study design of the CFA Program.
