If you are looking for a Tucson CFA course, Varsity Tutors can help set you up. If you are about to graduate from the University of Arizona, or you are a professional in the financial industry looking to make a vocational improvement, a Tucson CFA course might be just what you need to prepare for the exam. The CFA is a multi-test credentialing examination that may challenge your knowledge in a wide range of financially-related topics and passing it could give your career a boost. Enrolling in an online course to review the concepts that will be on the exam might give you the leg up you need to succeed on the tests.
What will a Tucson prep course cover?
The Chartered Financial Analyst, or CFA, credential is for those who have at least a bachelor's degree and 4 years of experience in the investment analysis and portfolio management industry. Attaining the CFA demonstrates a strong understanding of these areas. To receive this credential, you will be required to pass three separate exams - CFA Levels I, II, and III - in sequential order. The tests will cover a variety of topics, including Ethical & Professional Standards, Equity Investments, and Quantitative Methods, among others.
Each of the three exams has a different structure, with different numbers of questions and different types of questions. More than just covering the material on the exams, the instructor for your Tucson CFA class will address the format of the exams. Each exam is laid out differently, so becoming familiar with each exam can be hugely beneficial so you know what to expect. Your instructor can also help you learn test-taking techniques so you can more effectively work through the exam. Not only being familiar with the material but also the layout of the exam itself can help you keep your composure and confidently approach the exam.
What advantages are there to enrolling in a Tucson CFA course?
There are several advantages to preparing for the CFA tests via a course versus reviewing on your own. Your courses will be led by an expert instructor who has been vetted and who is a skilled communicator. Your instructor will guide you and your fellow course mates through the material on the tests and provide some strategies for taking the tests. Your course may even be split into smaller groups so you can discuss new material or work on small projects that will reinforce the learning of the new material.
You can also benefit from a collaborative environment where the instructor can lead the Tucson CFA class in a discussion over the material. Additionally, if you have a question about the material being covered, one of your fellow course mates can help you out. Conversely, if a classmate has a question and you know the answer you can help them out. A class discussion can help you better retain the topics discussed. Working with a class also exposes you to perspectives other than what you might have considered yourself.
Working a Tucson CFA class into your schedule is probably easier than you think. Since the classes are conducted online you can attend from anywhere there's an internet connection. You won't have to hassle with traveling to a physical location to attend. You can meet with your class and instructor in a distraction-free environment of your choosing. The classes are held through video chat where you can see and interact with your classmates and instructor, and there's a virtual whiteboard to make it feel like you're in the same place as the rest of the class. Despite the advantages of a collaborative environment, if you find that you're having trouble with certain topics you are always free to get in touch with your instructor and set up one-on-one help outside of class.

Brad: Tucson CFA course instructor
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.

As an investment professional for over thirty years, I really enjoy teaching the nuances of the craft. It's a great career and students can benefit from my victories and defeats. Tutorship exclusively by the Thayer Method; This methodology is one in which students are responsible for their own learning. They study material prior to attending class and classroom time is spent reinforcing/clarifying lesson material. If you are unmotivated, I am not the correct teacher.
