      Hi! I am aiming to pass the CFA I in May, and I will be soon starting studying.

      I have no previous background in finance or economics whatsoever, and with the 24% pass rate I am wary that the basic tools provided by the CFA will not be enough for me. I was thinking of getting a tutor, some one-to-one guidance who I can meet online. I saw Kaplan Schwesser has the on-demand course, but not sure they provide this service. I do not want to spend tons of money either. What courses/resources do people recommend for someone in my situation? Is the premium package from Kaplan enough? should I also get a tutor? or any other suggestions?

      There are tutors available generally, but you’re probably fine with video lessons which would be lower cost. Live classes could be an option as well except they’re usually a lot more expensive.

      Personal one-on-one tutoring would likely be on a per-hour basis and similarly quite expensive.

      So I would recommend checking out video lessons first – Kaplan Schweser and UWorld are both good choices to look into.

      Let us know if you have any questions!
