Using the CFIA Exam Prep Course
The program will randomly serve up questions in each of the four sections. It will continue to serve up any questions you get wrong until you answer them correctly. You can go back and re-take sections as often as you like. We recommend taking each section until you are consistently scoring in the 85%-90% range.
You may study and take the exam sections in any order you choose.
The AFIA recommends you begin by taking the Pre-Assessment. This will help you identify your strongest and weakest sections. Start studying with the strongest of the four sections (the area in which you are most knowledgeable) and work up to your weakest area. This way, you are studying your weakest area closest to the exam.
