The December 2020 CFA Level 1 online prep course – USA edition starts in mid September 2020, approximately three months before the actual exam. This is the time when most candidates realise the true extent of the challenge still lying ahead, often coming to the conclusion that there really isn’t that much time left.
Sounds familiar? The period between September and December should be your most intensive and productive time of study, which you simply cannot afford to waste. With limited time left, you should:
- formulate a realistic study plan to which you can commit
- stay focused and maintain discipline
- practice solving plenty of exam-style questions
- ensure you get broad coverage of the CFA Curriculum
If you are worried about your ability to stay on track, let me assure you that you are not alone. Many, if not most, Level 1 candidates have similar doubts and anxieties. At A4 Training, we are committed to helping you use the final three months before the exam to the fullest with our December 2020 CFA Level 1 online prep course.

Have a peak at the content preceding the Module 1 live session:
A MAXIMUM OF 25 PARTICIPANTS
I’m a great believer in classroom interaction. That’s why we have capped the group size, allowing for plenty of classroom discussion, giving everyone the opportunity to interact with the tutor and ask questions.
In-between the sessions, I will be asking you to tackle numerous exam-style problems, read extracts from the CFA Curriculum, and solve selected end-of-chapter problems from your CFA texts
- Texas Instruments BA II Plus or the BA II Plus Professional calculator – this is the calculator which I like to use and I will
- Access to the CFA Curriculum – as part of your homework assignments I may point you to specific extracts from the CFA Curriculum, blue-box examples and end-of chapter problems (in fact I will be asking you to have a go at solving a great many of them)
