How often do you update content?

As needed. Our dedicated team works every day to create new content, improve current content, and track the ongoing changes to the CFA Institute curriculum. We may also change or update content based on your feedback.

Do I need to cancel my subscription after my exam date?

No. Your recurring subscription billing will end automatically after your exam window closes.

Why should I choose Salt Solutions as my CFA exam preparation provider?

Salt Solutions follows CFA Institute guidelines and standards to provide you with valuable study materials and a high-quality CFA learning experience.

Our team built Salt Solutions based on extensive research into what CFA candidates want from a study tool. Our work was also informed by our own time as CFA candidates and our years of experience helping candidates succeed on their exams. We fed all of that knowledge into creating this platform to help you prepare efficiently and effectively.

The result is a learning experience that guides you from your first day of studying to your exam day. We have divided your preparation into two phases: Learn teaches you the material, while Focus teaches you how to take the exam. Check out our video introduction from instructor Mike Carmody to learn more.

Is a question bank included?

Yes. All questions are handpicked by our team to cover key concepts, and they are similar in style to what you will see on the actual exam. In addition to the question you answer after each reading, our approach to preparation includes a second phase, titled Focus, featuring practice exams, a custom quiz builder, and review materials.

What is included in the free trial?

Our free trial for Level I and Level II includes access to the entire Quantitative Methods topic, including all video lessons, manuals, and our custom quiz builder so you can test your knowledge. Level III includes access to the Portfolio Management (Part I) topic.

Are discounts available for Salt Solutions?

Using our referral program, you can earn discounts on Salt Solutions study materials by referring fellow candidates. Each successful referral (i.e., one leading to a qualified purchase) earns you 10% off, up to a total of 50% off.

What are other candidates saying about Salt Solutions?

“Salt Solutions was KEY for my exam preparation. I passed the exam on my first try and I'm so grateful for that. I work 9 a.m. to 9 p.m., Monday to Friday, and I didn't have much time to study, but the videos are really helpful and the mock exams helped me a lot during the last mile of my study. I really like that they give you an explanation for every answer of the exercises. I 100% recommend Salt Solutions.” – Diana A., who passed the CFA Level I, July 2021 exam

"I was one of the lucky 22% [to pass the July 2021 exam]. Although I studied extremely hard and was humbled to be comfortably above the 90th percentile, I must say there's no way i could have done it without Salt Solutions." – Hitesh Masan, who passed the CFA Level I, July 2021 exam

"One thing I noticed with Salt Solutions CFA Level 1 compared to other 3rd party companies, is that the same info is told in a more direct and simple manner. Readings from the CFA are the longest of all and 3rd party seminars are not quite as long, but much longer than Salt Solutions. I will be signing up for the regular membership." – PepperGypsy, Level I candidate

"Passed my Feb CFA Level 1 Exam—couldn't have done it without you all. Really appreciate it!" – Reza, Level I candidate

Full Exam Access gives me access to my Level [X] materials until I pass? Does that include the new curriculum for each year?

Yes, if you don't pass your Level I exam in 2022, for example, you will receive access to the Level I curriculum in 2023 as well. We never revoke access to Salt Solutions materials once you've made the Full Exam Access purchase.

Can I share my Full Exam Access with others?

No. Salt Solutions users agree to not share access to their account. Furthermore, students are required to keep private (not share) any materials, viewed, download, or otherwise acquired from Salt Solutions websites or software or partner websites that require a purchase or subscription to access.
