As members of the Education team at CFA Institute, we are in the privileged position to be able to evaluate the various candidate preparation resources in the marketplace.
Technological advances and a much larger global candidate footprint (not to mention over 100K motivated charterholders!) have made offerings of all flavors and mediums ubiquitous.
Unlike my experience many years ago where a few large training providers dominated the live instruction business, candidates have access to countless online tools, social media communities, blog sites, practice tests, and even two recent book publications. Preparation has truly democratized.
