The Ultimate LevelUp BootCamp experience is a total immersive educational, cram session for the Level III CFA exam. The class will be limited to 40 candidates. Candidates that chose this review will change their exam locations to Omaha, NE. Why? The Omaha exam center has less than 20 CFA Level III candidates taking the exam. The stress is low and like the “Cheers” bar…everyone knows your name. Additionally, the exam center is located directly across the street from the Marriott hotel.
The agenda for the Ultimate LevelUp BootCamp is simply hard work. We will cover the detailed aspects often tested in the candidate curriculum, we will work the difficult white text problems (found inside the CFA candidate readings), blue box examples, end of reading practice problems but most importantly we will work past exam questions. We will learn the topic then practice how to answer the exam question. So many candidates are “mis-led” on how to answer the questions with “fewer words to earn more points” but that is farthest from the truth. We will cover the “theory and practice” of exam solutions, we will cover the hidden traps candidates make on the exam. Hidden traps are “blind spots” in the exam where candidates don’t see the points they are missing or make mistakes they didn’t know they were making. The primary emphasis of the Ultimate BootCamp is working problems and quickly providing the best solutions to earn maximum points in the least amount of time.
