For fresh-faced entrepreneurs and professionals, it should come as no surprise to hear that undergraduate degrees can only get you so far these days. With more and more graduates and fewer and fewer jobs, a professional certification can go a long way in helping you stand out amongst the crowd. And for those of you working in finance, the Certified Financial Analyst status is the holy grail LinkedIn update.

Yes, becoming a Certified Financial Analyst can do wonders for your career. The money is great, the certification gives you flexibility in exploring jobs or opening your own business, and it puts you on a career path with virtually no ceiling. But becoming a Certified Financial Analyst is far from easy. Over half of the people who take a CFA exam each year fail. Considering exam and study fees can add up to nearly $1,000, it can be a real pain to fail, not to mention a drain on your bank account.

If you're thinking about taking any of the CFA's three certification exams, you should mitigate your risk of failing as much as possible by investing in a trusted test prep solution. AnalystPrep is one well-known option that gives you the best chance of passing on your first try, and it's more affordable than most to boot.

In short, AnalystPrep is a one-stop-shop study platform designed to guide you to success. Their massive study library includes video lessons, study notes, a 3,000 practice questions Question Bank, and complete mock exams to help you fully prepare for any CFA exam. (Or FRM or SOA exam, too.) They believe practice is the only way to make perfect when it comes to these exams, so you'll have virtually endless practice exams and quizzes at your disposal.

AnalystPrep is not a new kid on the block, it's worked with 25,000 satisfied customers, helping them get the best hands-on practice that the Internet can offer, all at a more affordable price than their competitors. While other prep services can cost north of $500, AnalystPrep's study plans begin at just $149.

If you're thinking of a career in finance, you'll have to pass some tough certification exams. Give yourself the best chance possible by enrolling with AnalystPrep before you take the exam. Check out their plans today.
