CFA Level 1 Mock Exam

  • With CFA® Total Recall, you never get the same question twice.  Ever.
  • The only thing that stays the same is the thing you need to learn.  Our natural language processing AI algorithm gives you question after question after question... with no repeats.
  • All you need is your mobile phone and an internet connection - no more books.
  • And how's this for help?  Answers are fully explained after each and every question is answered.

The Only App With Limitless Mock Exams

Most other CFA exam prep providers give you hundreds of hours of videos which you'll never watch.  And you'll pay them thousands of dollars for the pleasure.

But what if I told you there's an app that costs maybe a coffee a week that provides you with the most question practice you'll find anywhere?

That means you can concentrate on doing instead of memorizing.

You'll understand instead of regurgitate.

The ability to teach complex matters to students in a unique way

"Sean is a 1st class education professional in the financial services industry. I first met Sean when I was studying for CFA Level 1. He combines solid understanding of Economics & Finance with the ability to teach complex matters to students in a unique way!"

One of the few I'd call a supreme teacher

Michael McKay

Michael J. McKay


"Andy Duncan is one of the few I would call supreme teachers who can make complex financial knowledge simple, clear and, most importantly, memorable. I give highest marks to Finlingo because it is infused with Andy Duncan's incredible talent."

You Won't Wreck Your Personal Life

We created the CFA Total Recall app to stop this crazy stuff from happening to you:

"The 2.5 year journey stunted my personal development a bit (personal relationships, physical and mental health)."

"I forgot at least half of the material since I never use it."

"I gained 10 kilos during the course of my CFA prep. Was very difficult to manage, work, gym, CFA prep and my girl friend. had to quit the gym in march."

"I have no personal life. When I go out people barely recognize me. Pretty sad actually"

"I believe I lost two friends just because I have been devoting most of my time in Barnes and Nobles, and Starbucks, instead of hanging out in pubs with them… Sad??"

Have Your Cake and Eat It, Too!

Our app lets you study on your commute, while you're waiting for a meeting, and during lunchtime without the extra baggage. That means you won't sacrifice your personal life for your career goals.

A treat to sit thru a training session with Sean

"High energy, good anecdotes and real life examples make it a treat to sit thru a training session with Sean. Sean's draws a lot on his own experiences and plenty from the books to deliver a precise and concise session which I have found to be of immense help."

Frequently hired to teach the big shots...

Jeff Deist, President Mises Institute

"Andy Duncan is a teacher without the dullness, an economist without the jargon, and a finance expert who actually understands the humans behind the numbers. He's a fantastic talent, frequently hired to teach the Big Shots at Goldman Sachs, JP Morgan, Credit Suisse, and the like. Thanks to Finlingo, he can teach you too."

Perfect Practice for Non-Native English Speakers

"Personally, I haven’t seen anyone with below average English pass the CFA. I’m not saying it’s impossible though. You don’t need to worry if you are a native English speaker. However, if you’re mother tongue is other than English, you need to be careful."
- a Chartered Financial Analyst on Quora

You can't escape it: English is the only language for the CFA Level 1 examination.  There's just no getting around it.

But what you can do is practice enough so English isn't the problem it could've been.

By continually using the CFA Total Recall app for practice, you'll get accustomed to the linguistic nuances the examiners employ during the exam.

You'll answer each and every question with confidence, as you'll have practiced enough to be completely prepared.

Makes it easy for people to understand otherwise difficult financial concepts

Stephan Kinsella

"Andy is hugely knowledgeable about economics and free markets, and from what I saw when I was lecturing with him in Brazil, he's also an entertaining speaker and teacher. He makes it easy for people to understand otherwise difficult financial concepts, and I thoroughly endorse his teaching application, Finlingo, to anyone who wants to learn about the modern financial world."

We built an AI engine to create questions on the fly.

"If you read anything over twenty times, you will not learn it by heart so easily as if you were to read it only ten, trying to repeat it between whiles, and when memory failed, looking at the book."
- Sir Francis Bacon

As a Viennese piano teacher would say... "Practice!  Practice!  Practice!"  It's critical to drill the concepts, formulas, and descriptions into your head before you get to exam day.

In order to do this, we've designed a question engine - not a question bank.  Everything you see on our app is instantly generated the moment you hit the "Next Question" button.

That means you never have to worry about running out of questions, answers, and explanations.  Ever.

Manage Your Study Time Better.

You've wasted enough time reading seemingly interminable, unintelligible jargon without knowing how you're going to get tested on it.

With the CFA Total Recall app, you know exactly how you're going to get tested - and how to master answering those questions correctly.

Wait... who are you guys and why should I trust you?

Sean and Andy drink beer

Finlingo co-founders Andy (left) and Sean utterly loathed creating questions, answers, and explanations for our CFA Level 1 students.

It was a complete pain-in-the-ass!

So we decided to automate the process.  Yes, out of sheer self-interest did Adam Smith's invisible hand guide us to help you pass your exam more easily.

But it's good to know we have nearly 40 years teaching experience between us, have worked for major global banks when we weren't teaching, and passed the dreaded CFA Level 1 exam.

Made the CFA fun

"Sean made the CFA fun!! Enthusiastic, engaging, Sean has a great ability to deliver the message in an a clear and straightforward fashion. Always a straight up professional who demonstrates the highest level of due diligence care and attention when it comes to getting the job done."

He’s a great teacher

Chairman, Casey Research

“Andy has a great understanding of how the world works in general, and economics in particular. He’s a great teacher, and I strongly endorse Finlingo.”

How does it work?

Ah, the secret sauce.

A question engine that spits out questions, answers, and explanations that pass the Turing Test every time.

Andy has been coding since he was a little boy.  Sean has been complaining about tech since he was a boy.

It was the perfect marriage.

But the creation of the qualitative questions is the crowning achievement.  That means you can actually practice your Ethics questions over and over again, just like your CAPM, Two-Asset Portfolio Variance, and Sharpe Ratio questions.
