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 2004. 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:
Really, Really, Really Important Note
Well, I finally did it! As of April 25, 2016 I have the subscription software installed and I can start charging for memberships here.
Starting June 5, 2016, the subscription rate is $60 for Level I (6-month subscription) and $120 for Levels II and III (12-month subscription).
There you go.
One More Important Note
The login problem’s been fixed, though it’s a (tiny) bit roundabout. Click on “MEMBERSHIPS” (above) and you’ll go to the WordPress login page. Once you log in, you’ll be at your WordPress user profile page; you can click on the link at the top to go to the website.
I just love software. Don’t you?
And a Third Important Note
Given the enthusiastic response to my idea of having a 2-day Level I review, I have scheduled such a review for the weekend before Thanksgiving, at the Hilton Anaheim, in Anaheim (duh!), California, at a cost of $500 per candidate. I’ve arranged for a special room rate of $119/night at the Hilton, but that is guaranteed only through August 31. So register soon to get the special rate.
I need at least 5 candidates registered to be able to run the class; again, register soon, and I look forward to seeing you there!
By the way, if you sign up for the review, I’ll include (at no charge) access to the Level I articles on my site.
Also, as an object lesson in (legal) price discrimination and sellers capturing some or all of the consumer’s surplus, if you are one of the candidates who answered the poll saying that you’d be willing to pay more than $500 for the course (or would have answered that way but haven’t gotten around to it), feel free to pay me as much as you want beyond $500. 😉
Guess What! Another Important Note
If you’re curious about whether the articles on this website are worth the (eminently reasonable) subscription fee, I’ve decided to help you make that determination: I added a page (Sample Articles) that has links to six free articles: two at each Level. Those should certainly give you a feel for whether you should purchase a subscription or not. You should also look at the list of existing articles for your Level, and the list of proposed articles for your Level. Then you can make an informed decision.
