He's taking one of those course which purport to up your chances of passing - I think they claim 90% pass rate. This past semester,which was my last as a full time student,for Investment and Portfolio management,I had a professor that taught a college prep course for the CFA. She said for the people who take the CFA,the pass rate is in the 30% range give or take. I've run into similar claims for online courses to pass the series 7,6,63 etc. I've never tried one though.Read books for years even before I got into college.Which is why I asked who was reading what.I've seen some pretty expensive manuals on the CFA.Sheesh!Portfolio Management text (which I somehow won the auction for with a bid of $0.01 - the guy mailed it to me in gift-wrap paper). I had to laugh at this!Nice of him.I also just completed my MBA in finance last August, so all of my text books and notes are relatively up-to-date, and good for background material. I've nearly completed my bachelor's degree (need one course in the fall). I am going to have to spend some time going over the material in Invst & Prt, until I have it down cold.We were discouraged from memorizing in class...totally different type of teacher. Good luck, J.P.
