We’re your pathway to passing.

Our two-phase approach to preparation puts you on the pathway to passing. First, you’ll learn the materials, then you’ll focus on applying what you have learned to exam-like questions. Each phase features a unique dashboard, content, and analytics to keep you focused on the important stuff.

Phase 1

Our approach to learning gives you the confidence and understanding to solve any question you encounter.

Using our online manuals and video lessons, you will work through simplified explanations of each CFA topic. We help you learn and retain only what you need to know versus everything within the topic. From there, we’ll provide you with bite-sized assignments to reinforce what you’ve learned and help you quickly assess your understanding.

Phase 2

Using our mock exams, quizzes, review materials, and analytics, you’ll have everything you need in the final weeks leading up to your exam.

We start you off with review materials that cover each reading and give your brain a quick refresher. At that point, you’ll be ready for a combination of quizzes and mock exams to help identify your strongest and weakest areas. Through analytics and insights, we’ll help you use your last few weeks as effectively as possible.

Crafted for Candidates

Prep that stands above the rest.

Salt Solutions is a CFA learning experience built to fit your needs and life. We are with you every step of the process—from the day you register to your last custom quiz—to deliver a unified CFA learning experience.

The Journey Ahead

In Phase 1, our Learn dashboard shows you what you need to accomplish to stay on pace. Divide and conquer with weekly CheckPoints goals that break the curriculum up into manageable, bite-sized chunks. Your studies start here.
The Learn tool is used to read manuals, watch video lessons, and take question assignments.

Because Simpler Is Better

You’ll spend most of your time in Learn, so we streamlined the interface to get you closer to the materials faster. Our manual and videos simplify the most complex concepts and break them down with step-by-step explanations.
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.

Your Best Version of You

In Phase 2, our Focus dashboard helps you continually strengthen your understanding. Review, practice, and assess, then determine where your attention is most urgently needed. Focus lays out your plan to improve, making the best use of every day.
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.
