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:
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!
2022 Level III List of Lists is Out!
In 2021 my Level III List of Lists (a compilation of all of the lists in the Level III curriculum that candidates need to know) was extremely popular, so I’ve revised it for the 2022 Level III curriculum. Candidates were asking me to employ a broader definition of what constitutes a “list” (e.g., many of the subsection headings, not merely the bulleted or numbered lists that appear in the text), so that’s what I did: the 2022 List has 85 separate lists on it (compared to 34 for 2020/2021). Of course, this comes at a price: the 2022 List is USD 10, which is still a bargain given how well it organizes your Level III review. You’ll find it here.
Reorganized Level III Morning Session Mock Exams
With the advent of computer-based testing (CBT), CFA Institute’s exams have shrunk from 180 minutes apiece to 132 minutes apiece. To keep abreast of these changes, I have reorganized my Level III morning session mock exams into 132-minute exams, with a correspondingly lower price than the originals. This involved ripping 48 minutes of questions out of each of the existing five morning session exams (giving me five exams in the new format), then reassembling the ripped-out questions into two new morning session exams. Unfortunately, 5 old exams and 7 new exams don’t have exactly the same numbers of minutes, so exam 6 is done, but I have to write a couple more questions to fill out exam 7.
For those of you who bought the old (180-minute) exams, I will make sure that you also have access to (the new) exams 6 and 7, so that you don’t miss out on any of the questions you originally purchased. If you find that you cannot download one or more exams, please e-mail me and I will check into it lickety-split.
Level III Afternoon Session Mock Exam(s)
My first Level III afternoon session mock exam is finally finished, through review/evaluation/editing, and available for download. Please let me know what you think of it.
I finished exam #2. So, the odd numbered morning exams (#1, #3, #5, and #7) have afternoon exam #1 included, and the even numbered morning exams (#2, #4, and #6) have afternoon exam #2 included.
