HIGH-YIELD Course 2021

Level I HIGH-YIELD Course 2021

The IFT High-Yield Course for Level I is based on Pareto’s 80-20 rule according to which 80% of the exam questions are likely to be based on 20% of the curriculum.  Hence this course focuses on the 20% material which is most testable. 

We call this the “High-Yield Course” because your investment (your time and money) is low but the potential return (passing the exam) is high!  As with high-yield investments in the world of finance, there is risk.  Your exam will contain some questions which are not addressed in the High-Yield Course.  However, we believe that such questions will be few and if you complement the High-Yield course with sufficient practice, the probability of passing the exam is high. Watch the below video for a brief intro:

Below are the main components of the Level I High-Yield course:

    1. IFT High-Yield Notes® summarize the most important concepts from each reading in 2 to 5 pages. Key formulas and facts are presented in blue boxes while examples appear in gray boxes.
    2. IFT High-Yield Lectures® are online video lectures based on the notes. Each reading is covered in 10 to 20 minutes (total duration approx 15 hours)
    3. High-Yield Q-Bank® has between 600 and 700 questions covering concepts that are most likely to show up on the exam. These are online with automatic grading, but you can also export them into a PDF format. All Learning outcomes are covered and there is a minimum overlap of the questions.
    4. Key Facts and Formula Sheet: 12 pages covering key facts and formulas for all of Level I
    5. You will get the IFT Mobile App to view High-Yield Videos and Notes (with off-line use also).

The High-Yield Course can be used on a ‘stand-alone’ basis if you are time-constrained. However, if you do have time, we recommend taking the High-Yield Course along with IFT’s regular material.  This will help ensure sufficient mastery of the entire curriculum.

Many candidates complain that they forget the material covered earlier.  The High-Yield Course addresses this problem by helping you to quickly revise key concepts.
