What are some of the topics a Pittsburgh CFA class can cover?

There are three Levels in the CFA and they all test you on your knowledge of asset classes, investment tools, ethics and professional standards, and portfolio management and wealth planning. You'll need over 300 hours to cover all the topics that will be tested in the exam and you need to pass each Level before you can move to the next. All three Levels can be taken annually in June with an additional test date for the Level I exam in December.

CFA Level I has 240 multiple-choice questions that focus on your basic knowledge and understanding of investment valuation and portfolio management. CFA Level II has 120 multiple-choice questions with 18 case statements while CFA Level III combines constructed response or essay questions with multiple-choice questions that test you primarily on portfolio management and wealth planning. All the Levels have a morning and afternoon test session and questions are usually divided equally for each session.

In your Pittsburgh CFA class, your instructor can give a comprehensive review for each Level of the CFA so you can better understand the format of the test and how questions are presented. The content, learning focus, questions of the exam increases in complexity with each Level, so your instructor can also give you tips on how to best approach this type of test.

What are the advantages of enrolling in a Pittsburgh CFA course?

Studying for the CFA with the guidance provided in the course can give you benefits that may be hard to achieve if you're just studying on your own. The course is handled by experienced CFA instructors who can not only help you become more familiar with the exam but also share with you some tips on how to avoid question traps in the test and develop good study habits throughout your CFA review. Your instructor can have you work on practice questions individually or with other students to help you learn topics faster through group study. You can also have detailed discussions on topics under the CFA like Financial Reporting and Analysis, Equity Investments, Portfolio Management, or any other topic that you may have questions on. If you need more help, the course also allows you to request a one-on-one meeting with your instructor so you can get personalized attention and support.

You can complete the entire review without leaving your home since the course is conducted online in a virtual classroom. Through the use of video chat and an online whiteboard, you can have an interactive live class with your instructor and classmates. No need to commute to and from school and you don't have to worry about time or expenses for the trip.
