AFC Student Blog Series Part 6: Preparing for Exams
May 09, 2014
After completing the reading materials for the AFC course, I am now ready to start the review. With practice questions and answers included in the back of the books, I can conveniently test my knowledge. And although the reading is in depth, the tools for studying are very straightforward.
While some students start the quiz section using an open book, I like to challenge myself and answer each section with my book closed. And, as it turns out, I do pretty well! Once I've scored my quiz, I then go back to the questions that were wrong and figure out what I did not understand. By the time I reach the third section of the review, I find myself doing better and better and I'm becoming more comfortable with the material.
Everyone studies differently and everyone learns differently, and this is why I enjoy the self-study AFC program. The study material is written in a way that suits all learning styles. Most importantly, I find it rewarding because it has allowed me to examine my own personal financial situation and think about where I want to be in five years.
Have you thought about it?
