Level III Essay Exam Primer

You’re almost done with CFA, don’t underestimate the essay exam! 

Join Arif Irfanullah to crack essay exam questions in this online class.

First Two Classes are FREE.

To Register for the course, please visit Here.

While IFT videos will help develop your concepts, simply watching the videos will not ensure exam success.  To maximize the probability of passing the Level III exam you must work through lots of practice questions.  Pay particular attention to the morning (essay) exam because you’ve not seen this format before.  In fact, poor performance on the essay exam is a major reason for failing Level III.

In order to prepare you for the Level III essay exam IFT has launched an online class which will focus on solving exam-style questions. I will also solve some questions from actual Level III essay exams.  In addition to showing you how to solve problems, in this course we will identify common mistakes and pitfalls that need to be avoided.

Instructions to join live class: We use a streaming portal.  Please visit our channel here at the right time on the date below

Classes will be conducted online per the below schedule:
