An average CFA student spends 322 hours prepping for the exam*. In our experience, most students struggle to cope with the expanse of the curriculum and find some topics challenging to master. Level I pass rates remain the lowest amongst all three levels, although the number of material providers are highest for this level. That means there is more to passing the CFA exam than just reading from the books and watching online videos.
