UWorld was founded in 2001 by Dr. Chandra S. Pemmasani, M.D. while preparing for the United States Medical Licensing Examination (USMLE). In just a few years, UWorld’s quality and disruptive educational approach made them the dominant force in the medical exam prep segment, with a reported mind-boggling 95% market share.
Following USMLE, UWorld has successfully expanded into other segments in healthcare, legal, accounting and college entrance exams.
In early 2020, UWorld launched its CFA Level 1 product after 1.5 years in development, with Level 2 and Level 3 products launching in 2022 and 2023 respectively.

- Answer explanations are thorough and note-like, accompanied with step-by-step calculator keystrokes for both calculators (if applicable).
