The Learn tool is used to read manuals, watch video lessons, and take question assignments.

Because Simpler Is Better

Focus dashboard shows your overall performance, a step by step recommendation on how to improve, and a list of your weakest topics.

Showcasing Prometric-like user interface, you can navigate through exam questions and attempt answers.

Realistic Mock Exams

Salt Solutions mock exams are just like the real thing. Our questions mimic the language, tone, and structure of actual exam questions. Our mock exam interface resembles Prometric, the computer-based testing (CBT) interface you’ll see on exam day. Testing is a mindset, and you’ll walk into your exam knowing what to expect.
The Checkpoints dashboard shows your overall progress, weekly progress, and compares it to last week.

Make Every Step Count

In our CheckPoints tool, topics that are crucial to the exam are worth more points. If your exam is quickly approaching, we’ll help you focus on what’s most important. Be targeted, not comprehensive.
The Quiz Creator gives the option to create a quiz based on a topic or reading while providing you with statistics on your performance.

Knock Out Knowledge Gaps

Our quizzes supplement your time learning and practicing. If there’s a topic you’re struggling with, target it with a custom quiz to round out your understanding. You determine the topic, number of questions, and grading style, to ensure your quiz fits your needs—and calms any nerves.

More Than a CFA Learning Tool

Highly polished, start to charter.

We have tailored our quizzes, practice questions, video lessons, and other CFA study guide tools, including our CFA question bank, to be high quality, engaging, and beneficial for your learning experience. The materials we have developed are designed to keep your attention with easily consumable 10–15 minute chunks of information.

Incredible instruction

All video lessons are taught by lead instructor Mike Carmody. He’s a CFA charterholder with 20+ years of teaching experience.

Never get lost

Simple, efficient navigation ensures everything you need is nearby. If you step away, get right back to where you left off with one click.

Empowering analytics

Stay motivated with statistics and infographics that help you assess your preparation and compare your progress to other users.

Bite-sized content

We know your time is limited. That’s why our videos and readings are split into 10-minute chunks. Fit studying into your busy life with ease.
