What is a CFA Certification all about?
The CFA certification program is aimed at equipping you with specialization in a wide range of investment principles that can be applied in the worldwide market. Other than equipping you with these investment principles it also helps you meet professional requirements of any work place. In fact a finance professional’s integrity and competence is measured by an authoritative standard as the CFA program.

One has to study a rigorous amount on topics covering the length and breadth of finance and allied subjects to be able to even attempt few of the questions in the paper.
