23 November, 2023: Shutdown for Maintenance
On Thursday, 23 November, 2023, our site will be shut down periodically as we install a new e-commerce plugin.
With luck, this will fix all of the problems candidates have been having with purchases / downloads.
Unfortunately, it will likely require that all candidates reregister so that they are recognized by the new system. It appears that we cannot download the data from the old system, so we cannot automatically add everyone to the new one.
I hate technology.
Once we verify that everything is working properly, I’ll post an announcement with instructions for reregistering and transferring all of your existing purchases to the new system.
I apologize for the inconvenience, but, when it’s all done, it should work far better than it has been.
I appreciate your patience.
Welcome to Financial Exam Help 123, the place to get help for the CFA exams. I’m Bill Campbell III, CFA, and I’ve been teaching CFA review courses since 2005. If you’re a candidate, please go to the tab for the exam for which you’re registered; there you’ll find links to articles that I have written on topics that you’re studying. If you’d like help on a topic that isn’t on the list, send me a comment (be sure to include which level) and I’ll get to it as soon as I can.
Thanks for stopping by!
Here are links to some other sites that CFA candidates find useful:
Our e-commerce plugin has been having problems, and they’re getting worse. In the last two days, links to purchase some items have been failing, even after I have fixed them.
If you try to make a purchase and find a failed link, please e-mail me with your username and the item(s) you want to purchase. I can send you an invoice through PayPal, then add the purchases manually. I’ll also need the e-mail that you use for PayPal.
If you make a purchase, but then find that you cannot access the item(s) you purchased, please e-mail me and I’ll fix that as well.
We will be getting a new e-commerce system that should take care of these problems, but in the interim, please know that I will do everything that I can to ensure that you can still get the study materials you need. I apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
Individual Topic Areas
Candidates have been asking for access to individual topics – Derivatives, Quantitative Methods, Ethics, and so on – so I’ve started to package them for individual access. Check out what’s available so far:
- Level I
- Level II
- Level III
There will be more to come as I fill out the content in each topic area at each Level. Stay tuned!
Updated Mock Exams – 2024
I’m working on the updates to my Level III mock exams for 2024, dropping the Behavioral Finance questions, adding new questions, updating existing questions, and so on. I’ve completed Exams #1 and #2, which are now available for downloading. I’m hard at work on Exam #3, with Exams #4 and #5 to follow shortly thereafter.
If you’re interested in the 2024 exams, you can buy a 2023 exam package now; your access will automatically roll over to the corresponding 2024 exam(s) as those become available.
Updated List of Lists – 2024
I’ve finished the 2024 Level III List of Lists – all of the lists of trivia in the Level III curriculum that could appear on your exam – and it’s available for download. The 2023 list contained 86 lists; the 2024 list contains 137 lists. Because it has expanded so much from the original, the price has gone up. Still . . . it’s probably the best USD 20 you could spend studying for the Level III exam.
Note that if you bought the 2023 List, you automatically get access to the 2024 List.
