CFA® Level I Exam Prep Now Available

December 2013

BRYN MAWR, PA – December 2, 2013

Financial analysts interested in completing the Level I Exam leading to the CFA® designation can now study online 24/7 through Analyst Success, the custom platform designed by The American College. 

“The College entered the CFA market just three weeks ago, and already, the program has garnered interest from candidates in all 50 states,” according to Dr. Larry Barton, President of The College.  “For many years, those studying for the CFA had only a few options for exam prep.  The time for monopolies has ended, and as the largest non-profit College devoted to financial professionals, we spent thousands of hours to create a seamless study protocol leading to exam success,” Barton adds. 

“The College’s package leverages eBooks, Video CoachAssist™, printed materials and mentor support for the Level I June exam. The program offers both self-study and instructor-led options and a free trial for any candidate who wants to access the first two study sessions,” notes Linda Need, CFA®, the Vice Chair of the College’s Board of Trustees and SVP, Managing Director at Wells Fargo Advisors, LLC.

CFA® candidates visiting will experience features such as: an interactive dashboard with progress and performance statistics, video solutions for application exercises, live webinar classes, and extensive interaction with instructors and peers.

Analyst Success offers candidates advanced learning technologies that they can experience for themselves by signing up for a free trial without any commitment to purchase.

“The CFA is one of the most formidable designations in the world.  We are just thrilled to have received hundreds of inquiries in just the first few weeks.  We’re elated,” notes Dr. Barton.

The Analyst Success prep program offers both Self-guided and Instructor-led packages. Resources include multimedia explanations, video lectures, personal mentors, practice problems, quizzes and practice tests, and the latest eBook technology supplemented by hard-copy workbooks.

“A team of 17 top subject matter experts has collaborated to create the Analyst Success program with a focus on what candidates really need to succeed,” says Barton.  “Time management is critical in preparing for CFA® exams, and a personalized analytics dashboard will help candidates stay on track.”

Level II and III packages will be available in the fall of 2014 to complete the full exam prep offering from Analyst Success, and materials and support will be available worldwide.
