Start Exploring the Curriculum


As a registered CFA® Program candidate, you have access to all the study tools you will need to prepare for the exam. The Learning Ecosystem provides the complete Level I CFA Program curriculum in a digital format, along with chapter summaries, practice questions, mock exams and a study planner for tracking your progress. You will find your study materials on the Candidate Resources page.

To get started, choose a study plan that is right for you.

The Structured Plan is the best choice for candidates who wish to thoroughly cover all curriculum topics. It takes you through the entire curriculum in sequential order, from the first to the last curriculum reading.

The Adaptive Plan is geared toward candidates with finance knowledge who wish to prioritize the topics they need to focus on. This plan starts with a 90-question assessment to establish a baseline for your existing knowledge. From there, the Learning Ecosystem creates a personalized study plan and tracks your progress, adjusting the progression of content to your strengths and weaknesses to make the most efficient use of your study time.

You can find test center locations on our website. To ensure that you get your preferred test center, make your selection promptly. Please note: if you wish to make changes after your initial selection, a USD 25* rescheduling fee will apply.

Best of luck in your studies!
