Fitch Learning has announced the release of Exam Prep App - CFA, an innovative new mobile app for CFA exam candidates, offering a first-preparation app for the CFA exams which enables CFA study from anywhere at any time.
Leading features of the Exam Prep App - CFA include:
--3,000 test questions;
--90 hours of video recorded instruction from Fitch Learning's accredited full time faculty;
--Slides and instructor-annotated course notes;
--Full capabilities and technical support without a WiFi connection - the first CFA exam preparation app with this feature;
--Compatible with iPhone, Android, tablet, and mini tablet.
"Fitch has prepared over 31,000 candidates for the CFA exam in the last 14 years," said Rob Thakur, Head of Professional Qualifications at Fitch. "Our Exam Prep App - CFA incorporates all we have learned about tutoring and supporting candidates to become charterholders. We are very excited to share this valuable resource as a free download and trial."
"Our clients have confided in us that one of their biggest challenges is time. They are managing demanding jobs in highly pressured industries and the required study time is scarce. To that end, the Exam Prep App - CFA app allows our clients to manage time more effectively. With some lectures only a few minutes long, even a quick train ride could mean a full lesson absorbed," Thakur continued.
Global pass rates for the exam are low, according to the CFA Institute. The organization acknowledges inadequate question practice as one of the causes and this was another strong consideration during the app's development.
"To obtain a pass, candidates need more than content knowledge. They need repetition of question practice and a deep understanding of how to perform for success. Exam Prep App - CFA was intuitively engineered to address these areas. It retests knowledge until the required level of knowledge is achieved, making candidates more confident than ever in their CFA preparation," continued Thakur.
The app is now available for free download and seven-day trial in both the Apple App and Google Play stores. The Exam Prep App - CFA joins Fitch Learning's robust library of training resources for CFA candidates, including online and classroom courses to prepare for the December 2014 exam.
