What’s Included With AnalystPrep
Log into your user account with AnalystPrep and you’ll see a ton of useful sections and tools to help you succeed. Let’s start with the Dashboard, since it’s essential for accessing the rest of this course.
The Dashboard section of your account clearly displays your current lesson progress and the lessons that you still have to complete. There’s also a breakdown of each subject and a progress bar that updates as you complete materials like lectures and practice tests.
Keep in mind that this dashboard is used for both Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) and Financial Risk Manager (FRM) exam study materials. Whether you’re enrolled in one, the other, or both, you’ll interact with this exact course dashboard— although it will only display info for one course at a time in order to prevent confusion.
Question Bank with Practice Questions
Looking past your personal Dashboard within your AnalystPrep account, you’ll see a section that’s filled with all the different subjects pertaining to your exam. Click one of these subjects and you’ll see a practice question to help prepare you for the real test.
AnalystPrep pulls these practice questions from a qBank of over 3,000 test questions. When answering them, you also have the choice of rating each question if you “loved” or “hated” it. This helps other students too, since the question bank is updated regularly to replace unpopular questions.
Once you’re ready to move onto the next step in your CFA or FRM study schedule, you can click on the Mock Exams section of your dashboard. By practicing in this way, aspiring financial professionals can adjust to the format and structure of the exam before test day, relieving any pre-exam jitters.
There are a couple of specific features worth mentioning when it comes to AnalystPrep’s Mock Exams. First, you’re allowed to print out the full exam and/or its answers— allowing you to even more accurately set up conditions at home to simulate your actual test day. Second is that you can compare your results with other students after completing your tests online. This means you’ll know exactly where you stand when compared to your fellow CFA Level 1 or FRM Part 2 test takers.
Customizable Practice Quizzes
You may be thinking, “Aren’t mock exams and practice quizzes essentially the same thing?”
Not exactly. Here’s what makes AnalystPrep’s practice quizzes different:
AnalystPrep provides you with a section in your login titled Practice. After specifying your chapter and subject of study, you also have the option to filter down the content that you want to review even further with more descriptors. Once you do, this platform will generate a unique practice quiz based on your parameters.
Do you want to include questions you haven’t answered yet? What about questions that you’ve previously answered incorrectly? You can select these criteria, in addition to specifying the amount of questions on each quiz. This is a source of endless review and improvement of trouble areas— an incredibly helpful resource for you to pass your exams.
Mobile access is important to many students who like to study on their smartphone or tablet. But what about offline access?
AnalystPrep easily meets the first criteria by supporting mobile devices without the need of a dedicated app. But here’s how it approaches the second criteria:
AnalystPrep’s Notes section has several downloadable files that can be taken with you anywhere. Much like the practice quizzes mentioned earlier, you can even print these items out should you need to take your review somewhere without a solid internet connection. Essentially, this allows you to maximize your studying anytime and anywhere— no more excuses!
The last piece that really rounds out this CFA/FRM prep company is their library of video lectures. These are broken down by topics in each chapter and are a great supplement for those who prefer to learn in this way. They’re all taught by Prof. James Forjan, a charismatic and knowledgeable CFA with a PhD level education. Since he’s written several instructional materials relating to financial markets and risk management, you’ll be in the best possible hands when learning from one of his lectures!
