Four Reasons to Love Video Lessons

Four Reasons to Love Video Lessons

Article by Team Salt Solutions on (Updated on ) in CFA Insights

As you're preparing for your CFA exam, you might benefit from using video lessons to learn CFA curriculum concepts! Check out four reasons we love video lessons.

Many Chartered Financial Analyst® (CFA) candidates use video lessons as their primary study resource while preparing for the CFA® exams. Video lessons not only explain the concepts—they also keep you engaged.

That’s especially true when the video lessons are from Salt Solutions and feature our lead instructor Mike Carmody, a charterholder and entrepreneur with over 20 years of teaching experience.

Here are four benefits to learning via video lessons, both in general and on Salt Solutions in particular.

1. Simplified CFA learning in a familiar format.

If you’re a visual learner, you might learn best by watching someone explain and demonstrate the concepts of the CFA curriculum. A video lesson mimics the classroom experience, in which an instructor walks you through the material. This method of learning is less time intensive than reading and engages your senses, too!

2. Flexibility to learn when you please.

But unlike the college classroom, you can watch video lessons on demand, on your schedule and at your own pace. You can also watch video lessons as many times as you want. When you’re having trouble understanding a particular concept, restart that video lesson and give yourself another look at the material.

I loved that [Salt Solutions] videos have 2x speed. I watched all of them that way and it sped up the process immensely. – Brandon, Salt Solutions candidate

3. Convenience and comfort, too.

You can also watch video lessons wherever you like, especially when you take advantage of the ability to download videos from Salt Solutions. Watch on your phone during your commute (on the bus), on your laptop during your lunch break, on the couch at home—anywhere that’s comfortable for you. With video lessons, you’re in complete control of the experience.

I love the Salt Solutions videos and summaries. They make everything as straightforward as possible without sacrificing depth. I like how [Mike Carmody] takes intimidating concepts and talks through them until the answers are obvious. I feel like I am gaining a lot every time I log in. – Erika, Salt Solutions candidate

4. Exceptional preparation from Salt Solutions.

At Salt Solutions, we’ve spent a lot of time on the quality of our videos. We thought about the design, from the colors to the font and the overall flow of information. We also quality control every step of the process, from writing the scripts in and filming in our studios to editing and closed captioning. This particular benefit is unique to Salt Solutions!
