Who will be teaching this class?  Daren E. Miller (earned the CFA designation in 1999; passed Level 3 on the first attempt and was a senior L3 exam grader in 2000 and 2001)

What is fhe secret to passing the morning session on L3?  "Less is more!"  Candidates tend to overthink both the difficulty of the questions and the complexy of their answers.  L3 questions are remarkably straighforward, with no hidden assumptions and no tricks.  By reading too fast or carelessly, candidates become their own worst enemy of the exam.  Daren will show you to slow down, read questions more carefully, and structure short answers, most of the time in *** less than ten words ***.

What will be covered?  We teach the most challenging topics that are likely testable on the morning portion of the CFA Level 3 curriculum.  We call these difficult topics "red flags" and these are notated in our classes and course material.  You can learn the easier topics in your own time.  We teach the toughest topics first so that you have more time to practice them.  We believe that the "red flags" are minor inconveniences that you can eventually master with practice and repetition.

What about Daren's popular morning Level 3 mock exams?  One complete, original mock exam is included in your course fee.  Daren will grade it for you and provide you with his grading key so you get valuable feedback on your handwriting.  Most candidtes write waaaaaay too much and are waaaaaay off target with their answers.

Will I get to practice what I learned in class?  Absolutely!  You will practice solving several exam-type questions and go over answer rationales with common exam traps to avoid.  Our classes are exam focused, so we put you under pressure so you know what to expect on exam day.

What if I have a question outside of class?  We moderate an exclusive, online community that brings together our instructors and candidates.  The community is organized by topics, so you can zero in on sticking points.

Each day runs from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. with a one-hour lunch break on your own.  We reconvene at 2:00 p.m. and finish each day at 5:00 p.m.
