IFT Summary Videos focus on learning outcomes and the most testable concepts of a reading. In creating the Level III summary videos we have considered the learning outcomes and CFA Institute essay questions over the last several years. The duration of these videos is about 12 hours.

We are confident that the summary videos will cover more than 80% of what you are likely to see on your essay exam.

For 2019 this is purely our prediction – however our 2017 summary videos did cover over 80% of what was in the 2017 essay exam!  For more information about this claim please click here
