How to acquire CFA formulas?

When learning CFA formulas:

  • use the small-steps approach: obviously you can’t learn 200 formulas overnight, but what you can do is learn 4 formulas a day over 50 days – it’s achievable with relatively little effort.
  • apply active learning techniques, e.g. write formulas down on a piece of paper or in a specially dedicated space on our flashcards, create your own flashcards to use for review, do exam-type computing questions.

CFA Calculator Tips

So many CFA candidates get to know their approved financial calculator over the last weeks before the exam. It’s so unreasonable when you take into account how much your score on the exam depends on your calculator literacy. Don’t be one of them.

If you want to learn how to use your calculator’s MEMORY and CF, NPV, IRR, BOND, DATA, and STAT worksheets, check out this e-book:

Your CFA Calculator – a piece of advice

To optimize your CFA exam prep:

  • It would be best if you used your calculator regularly during your whole exam prep, ideally from its very beginning.
  • While doing practice questions, don’t use Excel or other tools – just use your approved CFA calculator.

Use the MEMORY worksheet of your calculator. It’s optimal if in your exam you write down as little as possible. That’s why you should store the computations in your calculator’s memory:

  • Firstly, you save much time: you can recall the values whenever necessary without the need to note them down and then input them to your calculator.
  • Moreover, it eliminates a possible mistake of putting down a wrong value or, the other way round, entering a different value than the one you jotted down.
