Live Three-Month Courses in Zurich


"While no course can replace the necessary study effort, the FRM prep course at CfBS was crucial to my understanding of the exam material and to stay focused on my tight learning schedule. The excellent tutors presented the curriculum and its key concepts in a very clear and concise manner and provided helpful insights on what to expect at the exam. I can highly recommend the course."
