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!
Updated Survivor’s Guide – 2023
I’ve updated my Survivor’s Guide to the CFA Institute Command Words for 2023, including the reduction of the number of command words (from 30 in the 2010 revision to 17 in the current revision), and revised the examples to look more like the CBT interface, rather than the old, handwritten examples. I’ve also added an example of how to show a calculation on the CBT, so you know that you’re writing enough, but not too much.
If you’ve already purchased a copy, you can download the updated version here. If you haven’t purchased a copy, get one now so that you have ample time to study it and practice answering Level III constructed response (essay) questions the correct way.
