If you can afford it, classroom training is pretty awesome for a number of reasons:
- it figures out what you need to be learning, and when you need to be learning it
- experiencing someone explaining a financial concept is often a lot easier to understand
- there's interactivity - you can ask questions if you're not sure about anything
- the class will pace itself to its students, going faster or slowing down as needed
And for classroom training, you can't go far wrong with Fitch Learning. Fitch is one of the most recognisable names in finance, and Fitch Learning is one of the largest full-time CFA classroom training faculties worldwide.
Sometimes, however, you might prefer something more flexible, perhaps in the comfort of your own home, perhaps in snuggly home clothes. To help you with that, Fitch Learning has launched Cognition, an all-in-one virtual coach that covers all of the advantages of classroom training mentioned above. It's a pretty slick bit of kit that you can access anywhere, making CFA studying a lot easier.
