Selecting the CFA review program that is right for you is a critical decision.  A large portion of worldwide CFA candidates achieve scores that are on or near the borderline between passing and not passing.  The margin between success and failure is slim.  Choose the wrong CFA review program, and you may add a year or more to the amount of time required to earn your CFA charter, or you may never earn it at all.  CFA Institute data reveals that less than 1 out of every 5 candidates who fails the Level I Exam ever bothers to resit for the exam.  RGQ&Co. offers an unsurpassed mix of quality, value, and diversity of learning opportunities and media.  Use this matrix to facilitate your selection of a CFA program.

1This is one of the most important considerations in selecting a program—programs are taught by instructors, not institutions.  There is a steep learning curve required for adapting broader knowledge and instruction skills to the unique requirement of CFA exam prep training.  What is the CFA exam prep training experience of the program that you are considering?  Many  organizations promote a program without even naming or contracting with the instructor(s).

2Reduces risk of missing or coming late to class, and facilitates departure.

3Other providers will advertise a course, then cancel it due to insufficient enrollment and attempt to get candidates to enroll in one of their other classes, sometimes leaving candidates without a desirable class if the alternative program that they would have selected is full.

4The chain is only as strong as its weakest link.  Success on the exam depends upon being able to score points across the entire curriculum.  Each class is important.

5Conducive for successful learning environment.  Large class size is a common reason for lack of comprehension, reluctance or inability to ask questions, and significant attrition as programs progress.

6PowerPoint presentations to enhance effectiveness and efficiency of live instruction courses.  Most candidates annotate the Q-Notes and use them as their primary "cheat sheets."  Follow the link to obtain Q-Notes excerpt.
