A Philadelphia CFA course provided by Varsity Tutors can be the right choice if you are looking for a more convenient way to study for the CFA. The course is offered entirely online so you can study at home and learn from experienced and knowledgeable CFA instructors. Many aspiring candidates like students from schools such as the University of Pennsylvania and Drexel University choose the online course because there are many course times to choose from. If you need a CFA course that will allow you to study while also fulfilling your other work and personal commitments, then the Philadelphia CFA prep course can be the answer to your needs.
What are some of the topics a Philadelphia CFA class can cover?
It's important to be familiar with the content of the exam so that you can be at ease when answering questions. In the Philadelphia CFA class, you'll work with your instructor on practice questions for the three different Levels of the test - Level I, II, & III. All three Levels will test your knowledge on these topics: Economics, Fixed Income Financial Reporting and Analysis, Alternative Investments, Quantitative Methods, Corporate Finance, Ethical and Professional Standards, Portfolio Management, Equity Investments, and Derivatives. You need to pass each Level before you can proceed to the next.
There are 240 multiple-choice questions in Level I, which are divided into two three-hour test sessions (morning and afternoon). The questions cover basic knowledge and comprehension of tools and concepts in portfolio management and investment valuation. Level II, on the other hand, has 120 multiple-choice questions that are also divided into a morning and afternoon test session. This Level focuses more on asset classes and the application of concepts tested in the Level I exam. For Level III, there are essay questions and multiple-choice questions also split into a morning and afternoon session. Questions focus on portfolio management and wealth planning and some topics that are also tested in Level II.
What are the advantages of enrolling in a Philadelphia CFA course?
Busy schedules, work, and other personal commitments usually prevent test-takers from starting their CFA prep. Traditional review courses are not always the most convenient option especially if you need to travel far to get to a review center. The CFA course with Varsity Tutors is conducted online in virtual classrooms that can make it easy for students who want to prep for the test but don't want to spend extra hours commuting to get started with their review. You can log into the virtual classroom and you can already participate in the class in a distraction-free environment of your choice.
The online course is also live - you will be able to hear, see, and ask questions to your instructor and work on practice questions together with other students. You will use video chat and an online whiteboard for the discussions. Studying alongside other aspiring financial professionals can also have a positive impact on your studies. You can gain new insights about a topic through their perspectives and even address procrastination problems and increase your motivation to continue with your studies.
The course is also led by highly qualified CFA instructors who have many years of experience in the finance industry and in helping students perform at their best in the exam. Your instructor can help you make sense of test questions that might be confusing or give you tips on how to spot question traps in the test. With the instructor's experience, you can also learn some effective ways on how to approach each level of the CFA so that you can increase your chances of passing. If there are still topics that you might be struggling with and you would like extra help on, you can request to meet your instructor outside of class in a one-on-one meeting. The course sees to it that this personalized attention is available to you so that you can have many ways to address your difficulties with the CFA.

Juan: Philadelphia CFA course instructor
Hi! Thank you for taking the time to review my profile. I have found that every student comes to me with different needs and expectations so I seek to not only select students that I believe I can truly help, but I also come into the sessions expecting to adapt my teaching techniques that will yield the best results for my students. I look forward to speaking!... My teaching philosophy is to place the student's needs first in order to prioritize and adapt the way in which concepts will be presented.
