When I first enrolled in the CFA Program I felt like the textbooks and practice tests provided by the CFA Institute were more than enough for my preparation. I didn’t understand why people would pay for a prep provider that creates its own textbooks because I believed that it could partly drive me away from the CFA Learning Outcome Statements (LOS). I also thought that taking a prep provider would only mean more reading, which although could be helpful, may not be the best investment of time to help me pass the exams.
But once I had finished to go through all the chapters and wanted to review, I realised the depth of material covered was very large. It had taken me almost 200 hours and I didn’t want to go through all the material again to hunt through the thousands of pages for to revise and to answer the specific questions I had. So I started to look for help on the Internet on how to manage the rest of my study time and was so blessed to find IFT High-Yield Videos. It was exactly what I was looking for! Unlike most other prep providers, it follows exactly what the CFA Program covers by reviewing each chapter and helps you orientate your effort on most likely subjects to be asked. This is what made IFT so invaluable to me. So when came level II and III it was clear to me that IFT would be a very important partner to help get through that journey.
Having passed all three levels on first sittings, I can strongly affirm that IFT helped me clear the CFA Program, and while in itself it should not be a goal to aim for, in the shortest period of time possible (one year and a half). Thank you to Mr. Irfanullah and all the team behind IFT.
Hope you all the best in earning the Charter!
