Arif Irfanullah is an excellent instructor! He has an outstanding command for the subject matter, both in breath and in depth — Impressive! He really explains concepts well. He is both careful and precise with his explanations. He has an enthusiasm for teaching. He real cares about helping students learn. I can’t say enough good things about Arif and IFT!
I started studying for Level I in March 2015 after enrolling for the December 2015 examination. It was very time consuming using the Curriculum. I had only covered three topics by August 2015 (Quantitative Methods, Equity and Fixed Income). I then stumbled upon IFT 2011 Level I Videos from You Tube. That entirely transformed my approach. The videos helped me quicken my pace and my understanding of the Curriculum significantly improved. I passed Level I in Dec 2015, thanks to these videos. I purchased Level II time saver while waiting for Level I results. When the results came out, I… Read More
Using IFT’s prep course I was able to pass all 3 CFA levels on my first attempt in an 18 month period (December 2014 – June 2016) while working full time as an international tax attorney for KPMG. Despite having no background in finance, the IFT videos made the difficult concepts easier to understand and then helped me analyze the types of questions I was most likely to see on each level of the CFA exam. While each level is different, IFT did an excellent job of helping me understand the concepts which were likely to be tested and the… Read More
Arif’s unique pedagogical skills makes you feel that you are present in the classroom. He was very receptive and keen to address my problems whenever I had any. I have heard many lectures from other instructors but after listening to Arif I feel he is the only one who gives you value for money.
I purchased prep materials from your website after watching some of them on YouTube and I was convinced that it is indeed a value addition to my preparation. Honestly, I just did whatever you told me to do. If I still couldn’t understand something, I’ve again gone back to your lecture videos or IFT notes to ensure I get the concepts reasonably well. Finally, for the last one month I worked out more and more questions from other sources as well. I still couldn’t believe that certain topics on which you insisted us to get the concepts (as they were… Read More
I flung myself into the Level I Curriculum full of hope and with the enthusiasm of the beginner. One month into my study I became discouraged by the lack of progress and the realization that, in spite of putting in a lot of time and effort, I could not make head or tail of many topics. I was stuck. I consider myself very lucky to have hit upon IFT at that point in my exam preparation. As soon as I launched the first video on FRA I knew I was at a turning point: as Arif went through the reading… Read More
When I registered for my CFA Level 1 and got the books designed by the CFA Institute I was overwhelmed with the course content. The level of detail the Curriculum goes through is just staggering. I thought I could never complete the course in time, let alone pass. Close to about a month before the actual exam a friend referred me to the videos presented by IFT. Although the videos seemed long at first, I was amazed how quickly I completed a chapter as compared to self-study. The best part? We never skipped a learning objective. I highly recommend these… Read More
Mr. Irfanullah, I just wanted to send you a quick message that I very much appreciated your video lectures, including your crash course which I did in May. I took the Level 1 exam today, and don’t know if I passed yet of course, but there was more than one occasion when I could hear your voice in my head reminding me on certain concepts!I am a full time IT consultant, and have decided to pursue my passion of equity analysis, and the CFA program is the first step I’m taking towards a career switch. Needless to say I currently… Read More
