Schweser Secret Sauce Review

Take this compact book anywhere you go, printed or eBook, for a concise review of the CFA® Program curriculum. Schweser's Secret Sauce® provides insights and exam tips on how to effectively prepare and apply your knowledge on exam day.

Schweser Secret Sauce Review

The first portion of this book offers concise, readable explanations of the major parts of the CFA Program curriculum by Schweser’s team of expert authors. The second portion gives you essential exam strategies and guidance on how to pass the exam, including:

  • Tips and tricks on how to apply your knowledge
  • Basic strategies and time management hints
  • A plan for the last week prior to exam day
  • Topic-by-topic listing of high-probability exam topics
  • Analysis of level-specific question styles

For my preparation, I used Schweser's notes, as well as the FRM manual. However, I have not seen the benefit of using the Manual as all topics are covered in the Notes. However, remember one thing. The goal is to overcome both the first and the second part. And from my personal experience, the second part is much more difficult than the first and requires a lot more knowledge and practice that goes beyond Schweser's notes. So, if you just want to go through the first part, these notes are enough. But from a long-term perspective, keep other manuals handy so you don't get left behind when preparing for the second part.

About Kaplan Schweser

Dr. Carl Schweser, Professor of Finance at the University of Iowa, founded the Schweser Study Program in 1990. He compiled study notes from the basement of his home in Iowa City for the first level of the CFA® exam. . Prior to founding his company, Schweser taught CFA exam preparation courses for the Financial Analyst Study Seminar (SSFA) in Windsor, Ontario.

Andi Temte, a doctoral student who arrived at the University of Iowa in 1989, worked closely with Dr. Schweser. Temte, together with Schweser, contributed to the realization of the CFA Level I material. Together, in 1991 and 1992, they presented materials for the study of CFA levels II and III. Schweser's study program failed.

Schweser and Temte were led by a small number of dedicated employees who saw their Schweser curriculum become the CFA industry leader by the mid-1990s. After earning his PhD in finance, Dr. Temte returned to his hometown of La Crosse, Wisconsin in 1996. He began producing supplemental materials for Schweser's study program called Temte's Financial Education. Temte produced cards and audio-video material from his home and expanded the company's product range.

The continued growth during the 1990s eventually attracted the attention of education giant Kaplan, Inc. In November 1999, Kaplan acquired the Schweser curriculum. Knowing that his company was in good hands, Dr. Schweser decided to retire after the purchase. In May 2000, Andi Temte was named president and chief executive officer of the Schweser curriculum, and the company headquarters moved from Iowa City to La Crosse.

Since 1999, with the full support of Kaplan, Inc. and its parent company, Graham Holdings, Kaplan Schweser has been a world leader in providing state-of-the-art CFA exam preparation materials and continues to be a trusted name in the industry. .
