Event Detail

Accounting I and Quantitative I Review Sessions

Date, Time, and Location:
Friday, October 24, 2003 (add this event to your Outlook Calendar)
8:30 AM - 3:30 PM

The Investment Analysts Society of Chicago is pleased to offer its highly popular Supplemental Review courses in Accounting & Quantitative Methods for the Level I Exam in December 2003.


As many of your Candidate and CFA® Charterholder peers can attest, the exam is a challenge and all of us at the IASC want to help you pass the exams.


These supplemental sessions (in addition to any review course you might take), are designed around topic areas that have historically unnerved candidates the most - given the depth and breadth of the content that candidates are required to know.


Included in this supplemental review are -


  • New Study Techniques
  • Analogies, and
  • Real-World Examples

- all designed to help you "know" the knowledge rather than memorize it (which we easily forget with the slightest anxiety).
