3 Months Study Plan for CFA Level I

You can download the 3- months study plan for CFA level I from here – 3 Months Study Plan for CFA level I. (This study plan has been updated for CFA 2017 exam)

Please read the important points at the end of the study plan, and you may change the plan according to your strengths and weaknesses.

Anyone can prepare comprehensively for CFA level I in 3 months, but it will become more and more difficult with a lesser number of days. People usually overestimate how far they can get in a week, but grossly underestimate how far they can get in 3 months.

You can download our sample tests for Financial Reporting and Analysis, Fixed Income, and Quantitative Methods from here.

We hope that you can start preparation at the earliest and pass the exam with the flying colors. Wish you all the best !!

    As a non working candidate, you must study at least 4 hours a day. If you are not able to perform well after that, then you may consider it to increase to 6 to 8 hours daily.

    I have a question regarding the sectional tests. Where can I access 2015 material? I have seen you link a page whose newsletter dates from back 2013 and I am not sure how useful that can be since the curriculum changes every year.

    As for the mock exams, where can I get them? The CFAI only provides one I think.

    Thank you for this guide, it looks quite good and what I was looking for.

      You can use those sectional tests as syllabus has not changed for those subjects.
