CFA® Exam

Since 1984, CFA Society Los Angeles, Inc.(CFALA), in partnership with the University of Southern California, Marshall School of Business (USC), has offered its Chartered Financial Analyst® (CFA®) Review Program to candidates studying for all three CFA examination levels. In the spring, we offer courses for Level I, II and III candidates. For candidates preparing to take the Level I examination in December, we offer a Saturday review course in the fall. While live instruction is the cornerstone of our program, we also provide candidates with supplemental study tools including a full-length practice examination, access to recorded classroom lectures, and Schweser Notes and Pro Question Bank. The weekday and Saturday review courses provide candidates with a structured classroombased approach to preparing for the various CFA examinations. We designed our program to assist candidates with mastering the CFA Program Candidate Body of Knowledge. Our faculty covers all disciplines on the CFA examination.
