Taking a course can help you get more out of the time you were already devoting to preparing for your test. You'll get to learn from an experienced instructor who is an expert on the topics that you're studying. CFA exams are often taken by graduates of local colleges, such as Clark Atlanta University and Georgia State University. The easiest way to get started with an Atlanta CFA course is by contacting us directly. In the sections below, you'll find more information on how you can benefit from taking a course.
What's covered in an Atlanta CFA class?
Your class will help you review everything that you need to know before taking your upcoming exam. However, before diving into the specific content that your class covers, it's worth reviewing the format of the CFA exam series and seeing whether or not you're currently qualified to take one. CFA stands for Chartered Financial Analyst. It is a credential that is granted by the CFA Institute to individuals who successfully pass all three exams in the CFA series of tests. The credential is held by over 150,000 professionals across the world and signifies an advanced understanding of investment analysis and portfolio management skills.
In order to begin the exam series, you'll need to have either four years of professional full-time work experience, a bachelor's degree (or be in the final year of your bachelor's degree program), or a combination of education and experience that totals at least four years. If you satisfy this requirement, you can get started with your test preparation process. You'll want to review a number of different investment-related topics. This includes things like derivatives, corporate finance, economics, ethical and professional standards, and portfolio management, among others. Your Atlanta CFA class can help you develop a better understanding of all of these topics.
What are the benefits of taking an Atlanta CFA course?
Courses provide a unique way to get more out of your test preparation process. They take place entirely online so you can participate in them from anywhere that you have a steady internet connection. When you sign up for a course, you'll learn on a powerful virtual learning platform that connects you directly with your instructor and with your classmates. You can interact with both your educator and your classmates throughout your course sessions. For example, you can listen to the questions that your peers ask, which may help you think about the material that you're learning in new ways that aid your understanding of it.
Your instructor will teach you through a number of live lectures, which each focus on a different set of skills that you'll need to demonstrate on your upcoming CFA exam. If you're having trouble with some of the topics covered in your course, then you can also sign up to work individually with your teacher. This will give you the chance to focus more on the material that you're having the hardest time understanding. You can get personalized instruction and feedback, which can help you develop the skills and confidence you need to keep making progress towards your CFA exam goals.
You can sign up for a course even if you already have a schedule that's full of work, school, or personal obligations. This is possible because there are a number of different courses that you can sign up for, which meet at various points throughout the week. That means you can find one that you can take without having to make too many sacrifices in the other important parts of your life. Reach out to us if you'd like some help finding the right course option for your scheduling needs.
How can I get started with a CFA exam prep course?

I enjoy helping students learn material in a way they can remember and apply in future coursework.... Perseverance trumps brilliance every time. Ask questions and work hard, and there's nothing you won't be able to understand.... I would begin by asking a few questions to see where a student is. I would then provide a useful note sheet and go over a refresher of some of the concepts we would be focusing on.... I would talk about my learning habits with the student and refer them to some useful online/in person resources as well as ask questions to prompt independent thinking.
