  CFA经历近几年的考纲巨变,现在已经趋于稳定。如何知道CFA考纲是否发生变化了呢?CFA协会每年会公布考纲,叫做LOS。但是不能单纯的看LOS陈述的改变,就说考纲发生变化了。
 
  因为,有些时候协会只是把字眼改一下,使得LOS更(chun)加(shu)精(wu)准(liao)。
 
  所以,只有通过仔细核对原版书,才能发现真正的变化。考纲的改变是大家复习之前迅速理清框架结构的其中一环,特别是对于考纲新增部分,是CFA协会历来出题的重点,希望引起大家重视!

  很多同学担心自己的学习基础不行,担心CFA考试通不过,其实在目前复合型的人才建设下,跨专业很常见,多个专业也基本是雇主的人才需求标配了,所以不用担心专业的问题,也不用担心个人基础的问题。满分通过CFA一二三级都用什么资料,CFA学姐准备了一份CFA考试大礼包,助你高效复习CFA考试! >> 2017-2018年CFA考试电子版学习资料下载
