New CFA Review Course Available
A chartered financial analyst (CFA) review course for professionals preparing for the CFA examination is now available through Becker Conviser CPA Review. The new course offers courses in Chicago and New York beginning in mid-March.
The pros at Becker Conviser understand that professionals are busy and have tailored the new offering to feature e-learning tools and flexible schedules. Each student will be able to tailor content to specific learning needs and can access Web-based tutorial sample problems via the Net.
A course like this is helpful because CFA candidates must pass three levels of the exam in sequential order and may only take one test per year. An estimated 70,000 investment professionals from 70 nations will sit for the next exam scheduled for June 2000.
The company hired a team of CFAs, PhDs and instructional designers to develop the review course. It is the only CFA course that offers an eight-week program of two classes per week or eight double sessions on Saturday. All classes are taught by CFAs.

Voice of the Editor
Which isn’t completely true. I mean, occasionally I drop by when I manage to sneak out of the nonstop frat party over at Going Concern, but I’m mostly a wallflower over there. I’m happy to say that I’ve been given express permission (or explicit orders, if you like) to wander over here to AccountingWEB more often.
Why is that, you might ask? My job is to replace the irreplaceable Gail Perry as Editor-in-Chief. What does that mean? I don’t really know! I think it’ll be fun getting a feel for things, throwing in my own thoughts here and there, and listening to the discussions you’re having about the accounting profession.
