Individuals in the Atlanta area who are interested in taking the CFA may want to reach out to Varsity Tutors to sign up for Atlanta CFA prep. The Chartered Financial Analyst exam, or CFA, is an exam that measures an individual's understanding of portfolio management skills and investment analysis. You must have a bachelor's degree and four years of experience in the investment industry to take the CFA. The CFA is broken down into three different levels, and each level must be passed before taking the next. The exam covers an extensive amount of concepts related to the investment industry. As such, it may be helpful to conduct a comprehensive review of the concepts before taking the exam. If you could use some guidance as you prepare, you should enroll in Atlanta CFA prep.

What concepts can Atlanta CFA prep cover?

While the curriculum evolves every year, all three levels of the CFA focus on similar areas, including financial reporting and analysis, ethical and professional standards, and corporate finance, among others. Each exam covers similar topics, but the types of questions vary. The Level 1 exam is all multiple-choice, the Level 2 exam has multiple-choice and short answer questions, and the Level 3 exam contains short answer questions and essays.

Reviewing relevant concepts is an important aspect of preparing for the CFA, but there are also several test-taking strategies that could be advantageous. One strategy is time management, which can be useful in multiple areas. First, it can ensure that you move through each question quickly enough that you can answer all of them. Second, it can also ensure that you aren't rushing through the exam so quickly that you make careless mistakes. Using your time wisely can also help because you may have a chance to check over your answers before your time is up. Lastly, if you employ the time management strategy of skipping over difficult questions and prioritizing the easier ones, you may also build confidence.

No matter how much you study, there will likely be questions on the CFA you don't understand. When this happens, it can be valuable to be able to eliminate incorrect answers based on context because this can improve your chances of guessing correctly. It may also be useful to underline relevant parts of passages to sort through your thoughts.

What are the perks of the two types of Atlanta CFA prep?

There are two types of CFA prep: an Atlanta CFA prep course and private tutoring. Most individuals only sign up for one option, but there are those who sign up for both.

If you are someone who prefers collaborating with others, you may want to enroll in an Atlanta CFA prep class. You can learn concepts from an instructor and participate in discussions with your classmates. Class discussions can be especially helpful on the short answer and essay questions because your classmates can offer different perspectives on investment advice. It may also be worthwhile to work on an outline for your essay questions. This can save you time on the actual test because you will already have a plan for your essays on exam day. If there are any topics you are having difficulty understanding, such as fixed income, you can meet with your instructor after class to ask questions.

If you prefer a more personalized study approach, you may wish to connect with an Atlanta CFA tutor. One of the advantages of private instruction is that you can work at your own pace. If you are struggling with a particular concept, you can focus most of your time reviewing that while not spending as much time on topics you already know. In addition, your instructor can tailor the way they teach to fit with your learning style. For example, if you are a visual learner, your instructor can go over diagrams to increase your understanding.

How can I get set up with Atlanta CFA preparation?

Whether you are an adult in the investment industry or a student at Clark Atlanta University or Georgia State University, you likely have a busy schedule. You may feel that you can't fit CFA study time into your schedule because of school or work responsibilities. But the online nature of Atlanta CFA prep means that you don't have to worry about traveling to your sessions. You can attend them at your home or any other location with Internet access. If you wish to receive guidance as you prep for the CFA, contact Varsity Tutors today either online or over the phone.
