Learn Faster. Remember Longer. Perform Better.

PrepSmarter is the most advanced, continuously adaptive, learning engine for CFA®, FRM®, CPA® and CIA® exams.

PrepSmarter is a great supplement to your favorite instructor or study material while preparing for these competitive exams. You need not be enrolled in a course to gain from PrepSmarter nor will PrepSmarter interfere with your existing preparation. It’ll only embolden your learning.

I greatly enjoyed the interactive problems. They not only provide tips on what you did wrong but are an effective daily warm-up exercise, so you can remember the subjects you’ve already studied while working on others. I passed CFA Level I on the first attempt. I found PrepSmarter to provide an adequate balance between conceptual understanding and quantitative practice. The service was worth the price considering how new it is, and I believe they have nowhere to go but up from here. I will definitely be using them for Level II in the future.
          – Aaron Alghawi, CFA Level I Candidate, June 2016

How PrepSmarter Works? 

PrepSmarter uses adaptive learning technology and brain-based learning principles to quickly increase your knowledge retention and confidence so you retain everything you learn and can confidently apply it on exams and beyond. The entire learning experience is wrapped in gamification to make it fun, social and engaging.

  • Practice at your proficiency level with an engine that adapts to you. All our questions are continuously stratified by difficulty levels.

  • Don’t waste time doing questions that are either too easy or too difficult and discouraging.

  • Sweat less, score more. We have over 13,000 questions for all levels. But with our adaptive practice engine, you’d never need that many, because it delivers question at the right level to optimize your learning.

Why PrepSmarter?

  • Regular practice is the biggest differentiator between successful and unsuccessful candidates. Too many smart and hard working candidates fail these exams due to inadequate practice. With PrepSmarter, you can continuously practice and track your progress. You need not be enrolled in a course to gain from PrepSmarter nor will PrepSmarter interfere with your existing preparation. It’ll only embolden your learning.

  • Too much to learn, too little time - Most CFA, FRM, CPA and CIA candidates are either full-time students or employees. So they need a system that works fast and stays longer. Adaptive technology combined with Confidence-based learning quickly identifies and plugs knowledge gaps. Brain-based learning concepts such as spaced reinforcement and repeated retrieval keep those knowledge gaps plugged.

 

Over 25,000 students worldwide use PrepSmarter every year to prepare for:

  • CFA - Level I, II and III

  • FRM - Part I and II

  • CPA - AUD, FAR, REG and BEC

  • CIA - Part I, II and III 

PrepSmarter is available on the web and mobile.
