CFA® 2021 Level I – Study Solutions

The CFA® Level I exam is an extremely challenging test comprised of 180 multiple-choice questions. It is vital that you not only have a firm grasp on the CFA curriculum, but that you are able to apply your knowledge and answer questions quickly and accurately.

CFA Institute is transitioning all Level I exams to computer-based testing. The December 2020 exam was the last paper-based exam for Level I candidates. Additionally, Level I CFA Program computer-based testing will be offered in fours windows each year – February, May, August and November. Each window will be a maximum of seven days during which candidates can sit for the exam.

The Kaplan Way is a three-phase learning strategy: Prepare • Practice • Perform®. Using this methodology, we have built the most comprehensive study packages available for the Level I of the CFA exam, designed to help you make the most of the time you spend preparing for the exam. Our instructors have years of experience and know what it takes to pass the CFA® Level I exam.
