The Level III CFA® Constructed Response (Essay) Exam Technique Course focuses on the written exam, which many students find challenging. Students are given homework assignments to prepare for each class. We discuss the answers and exam technique in the classroom to help students improve performance and succeed in the exam. The course also includes a practice exam and students receive an individual analysis of results with suggestions to improve performance.

How do the live online classes work?

The aim of offering classes online in real time (the classes are also recorded and can be watched later) is that you can join the class wherever you like and still count on the support of the teachers to get your questions answered. The difference between live online and face-to-face classes is just convenience, as you can watch the classes together with the face-to-face students in the classroom, joining remotely.

Main benefits of the live online classes:

● Support: students interact with teachers in real time, participating in exactly the same classes as the face-to-face students, enabling them to ask questions and interact during the class through the online learning platform.
● Flexibility: class recordings are also available, enabling students to access the classes at any time from anywhere. This can be an advantage if students want to watch a class again or if they miss a class.
● Networking: all students interact in an online classroom.
