Our ultimate tips list for acing the Level I CFA® Program exam

In this series of posts, we present our top revision tips for you to get on track with revising for the papers!

As the CFA® Program exam draws near, we know most students are hard at work doing practice questions and revising.

To help you, we've compiled all our revision tips, written by CFA® charterholders, into one handy post.

Every post in the Cheat Sheet series has been written by the AB Maximus tutor for that specific chapter in the Level I curriculum. It generally covers the top 3 key concepts of that chapter and common mistakes and misconceptions candidates make. There's also extra tips and additional material recommended by that specific tutor to help you better understand the material in that chapter.

The section on calculation tips is meant to aid you while you do calculations for your practice questions.

Last but not least, the section on exam day tips covers what you should do in the days leading up to the exam, what to remember as you're doing the paper, and also a breakdown of what you must and must not bring into the exam hall.

Good luck and happy studying from all of us at AB Maximus!
