CFA exam preparations

The most important source of information is the website of CFA Institute. Available are e-books, summaries, mock exam questions and other online tools. Head for the website of CFA Institute for an overview of all (free) sources and visit the Candidate Success Center (, where resources and information about how to succeed on exam day are collected. Although the CFA Program is designed to be self-study, you are not on your own. We try to help you as much as we can to get the best possible result when you sit for your CFA exam. We work together with exam prep organisations, providing support with an offering of local activities and workshops.
