Passing the CFA exams is a challenging task. When you start on your CFA journey, it is important to be well prepared and have a strong strategy to get through it. These tips will help you better prepare for the exams.

1. Start preparing early: You should plan to start your exam preparation as early as possible. A 6-month period before the exam is the ideal time. The CFA Institute suggests that you need, on average, 250-300 hours of preparation time for each exam. This means you will require at least 10-15 hours of study time per week.

2. Prepare a schedule and a strategy document: Since there is a huge commitment of time per week, you should make a weekly calendar specifying what part of the syllabus you want to complete every week. You should allocate time such that you complete the entire syllabus at least once in four months. The remaining months can be allocated for reviews and practice.
