Level I (2022) HIGH-YIELD Course 2022

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 approximately 600 questions covering concepts that are most likely to show up on the exam. These are online with automatic grading. All Learning outcomes are covered and there is a minimum overlap of the questions.
    4. Key Facts and Formula Sheet: 13 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.
*All materials will be accessible from the IFT Learning Portal in electronic format. No items are shipped to you.
