WHAT CFA CANDIDATES ARE SAYING:

“I felt so prepared for the CFA exam after Apptuto’s Live course. The hard part of the CFA Program is finding time to study. I needed a class to make sure I was focusing my limited time on the right concepts, and Apptuto helped me stick to a study plan, making sure I was prepared and calm on exam day.”

Andrew L. (June 2015 CFA Candidate)

Apptuto’s online class was amazing, it really felt like being in a real classroom. I got to know other students well and the tutors knew my exact areas of weakness. Being online saved me valuable time, as I didn’t need to travel to the class. We also had access to the the class recordings after!”
