Pretty decent study aid, but I can't find the cards for first section of the Financial statement section, which is Inventories - LIFO, FIFO and all that good stuff. The app has a list of all the LOS's, but there no cards for these Los's. Very strange. "No cards" means no info on the topic, FYI.

I created new flash cards but can't seem to save it. What happened?

Reasonably priced, great definitions and easy to use. What more could you ask for?

nice flashcard app that covers the entire curriculum and breaks down the material by LOS. Useful for quick reviews of the study sessions. Only things I don't like are that you can't flip thru the cards and that there is no setting to automatically show the answer. I'm not big on using flashcards to quiz myself except for formulas and it would be nice to just have the answer show up automatically. Price was $19.99 so not too expensive. Other suggestion, have formula flashcards for each SS.

This app is convenient as long as you understand it is not comprehensive: 1) there are only 510 flash cards, with most of them being concepts. That means MANY formulas in the material are not covered here. For example, the Forward Premium and some of the Parities (Econ) flash cards have a concept but no formula. For bond conversions, there are 7 formulas in the readings. The flash cards provide 5. 2) Great for on the go, but because it only covers a portion of the material, you will have to use other personal notes or actual flash cards to supplement. There is a custom flash card option, but pretty worthless when you have to write out a formula like Black Scholes with powers, Greek symbols, etc. 3) You can star flash cards as favorites or flag them, but would be cool if every flash card you could mark with you know them, don’t know them, or need to review some more. So if you kind of know a concept be able to star it differently from a concept you don’t know at all. Essentially, the electronic version of making 3 piles. 4) Also you have to decide whether you want to view the cards at random or in chronological order at the settings level on your phone. This should be an option in the app. It’s pretty inconvenient to change the setting every time you want to change your view from chronological to random. 4) Overall, for $20, it is extremely disappointing that this app doesn’t cover every singe formula. You will fail if you rely solely on these flash cards because only 80% of material is covered. Great concept, but they have a long way to go for the price they’re charging.

Update: as i have gone through the level 2 material this app is really out of date. This is a really good app; however, some of the formulas are not clearly written. I also wonder how much it will help with level 2 given the test format differs from level 1. It'd be great if they had questions which were put into the lvl 2 format. I'd probably pay an extra $20 for that

Studying for the CFA 1 has put a major dent into my time outside of work. This app is really helpful for memorizing concepts, terms, and formulas. I still need to spend a lot of time studying and practicing problems, but when I do have the time to sit down and study, I can concentrate on going through problems instead of memorizing material. I would say this app is an essential study supplement.

Pass the CFA Level 1 was instrumental to me passing Level 1 and alas the gods have blessed us with Pass the CFA Level 2. So far it is just as thorough and helpful as the first and am absolutely happy i invested the $20. Good work!

Really helpful to review on the train to work. Just finished the books so this is perfect for me especially all the formulas which is a big plus. Got the free 2016 update which is much nicer design as well. Easy to use.
