For the nearly three decades that I have taught CFA review classes, I have found common success factors to passing the exam.
The Core Curriculum Slide Book was diligently and passionately built over several years of experience teaching the Level III CFA Program curriculum. Alternative review provider slides are constructed with many different “contractors” building different slide decks for various topics without regard to continuity or context of the Level III CFA Program curriculum and are rarely updated from year to year. Details matter and many slide presentations shy away from those details as to reduce seminar time and reduce confusion for instructors. LevelUp slides are comprehensive and detailed with full regard to details required to solve afternoon item sets. One candidate called them the “Mercedes class” slides.
The LevelUp BootCamp is held over four days with over 40+ hours of instruction with one instructor, Marc LeFebvre. This time is required to adequately cover the topics, to go over tough examples and answer candidate questions. Many days last until 9 pm in the evening with Exam Strategies Workshop. Alternative live reviews are held over three days, conduct no evening workshops, end at 5 pm and often change instructors between topics thereby losing the continuity of topics.
After you purchase access to the CFA Level 3 Videos, please log into “Account” on the top of our website. This will take you to your Dashboard. On the dashboard select Weekly On-Demand Videos to start watching the videos. Study sessions will be listed on the left side of the page where you can tab through to the various topics. The one topic I do not cover is ethics, as I suspect you know that topic by Level III. The color slide book is a bound, hard copy on heavyweight paper stock. Candidates often use these color slides for index cards. The color coding helps immensely with memory recall on exam day.
This is a great question. The video series was a hotly requested feature by candidates over the past five years. The videos will cover each reading in detail highlighting concepts and topics that very well could be part of the CFA exam. I will drill down into details that should not be glossed over, I will highlight practice problems, white text and bluebox problems that require your attention. The purpose of the videos is to have you work through the candidate readings; I will have those very readings on the screen as we work through the material via the Vital Source electronic version of the CFA Program curriculum something we don’t have as much time to do in the 40 hours of a LevelUp BootCamp.
The LevelUp BootCamp ties all the material together that is so critical for the exam success. We will cover the details once again and many tough problems to refresh your memory. What you learned months previously maybe hard to recall as you prepare for the exam. The LevelUp BootCamp intensively reviews the curriculum front to back. The BootCamp also gives you the strategy as you prepare for the exam the last few weeks to the exam date. The two together, a weekly systematic learning approach to the CFA Program curriculum coupled with an intensive exam focused LevelUp BootCamp will be for many the formula for a “One & Done”.
