5 steps to succeed in the CFA Exam



By now you must have read my article on how to bag a CFA Scholarship and most likely already have nicked it. Congratulations!!

Wining the scholarship is just the first step down the line. Below, I share 5 key steps which are guaranteed to ensure you make the most of the CFA exam.


1. Have a study plan and strictly follow it.

2. Read and UNDERSTAND the CFA® Curriculum and/or prep provider’s materials.

3. Do all End of Topic (EoT) questions and blue boxes included in the CFA® Curriculum to check if you understand the material and to review it.

4. Do many tests and mock exams to understand how the exam is structured and to grasp what the exam may look like.

5. Participate actively in study groups (both real and virtual ones) to improve and master your knowledge while asking and answering problematic questions.
