Live Four-Month Courses in Zurich

Testimonial

"Given the limited study time and the wealth of teaching material available, attending the CFA courses run by CfBS has made a real difference for me by making my studies extremely efficient. The CFA four-month courses have helped me pass all levels at first attempt. Moreover, when I entered the exam room, I always felt well prepared and confident."

Study Material

Teaching/studying is based on the following materials:

  • Comprehensive handouts developed by CfBS which contain all the Learning Outcome Statements (LOS) and the corresponding concepts.
  • Questions compiled by CfBS.
  • The Curriculum Readings of CFA Institute and the Schweser Study Notes (optional) which summarize the Curriculum Readings.

In order to prepare for class students are required to read the Curriculum Readings and/or the Schweser Study Notes. During the lessons CfBS will use its own study material to explain and practice the concepts. This approach ensures that the material is presented from a different angle and that students receive maximum added value.

The CfBS handouts are a summary of the CFA curriculum and can be used to efficiently review the curriculum in the final stages of the exam preparation.
