Why Salt Solutions?

More Studying, Less Thinking

Our scheduler adjusts your weekly goals based on the days left before your exam. Focus on what matters most. Worry less about what to do next.

Respect for Your Time

Each piece of content includes a time estimate for completion and comprehension. Figure out how to fit your studying in and spend your hours wisely.

Expertise You Can Trust

All video lessons are taught by Mike Carmody, a CFA charterholder and educator with 20+ years of experience. Mike also writes much of the material you study.

Easy on the Eyes

We’ve intentionally designed our platform for use in low-light situations, since many CFA students do their studying late at night.

Answers Within Reach

Our Solutions content, discussion forums, and extensive manual ensure you always find the answer to your questions.

Never Get Lost

Our platform features simple, efficient navigation, so you’re never far away from where you need to be in the material.

What users like you have to say

It will be a long road [to my CFA exam] so the support the platform can give me is invaluable.


Salt Solutions demonstrates the STUNNING visuals I wanted to help me consume and digest the material.

Dan K.

I love the interface … I found the apps easy to navigate and the background doesn’t strain my eyes.


I love how the lessons are 'simplified' without compromising the quality of the content. The videos after the readings are also great to enhance understanding [and] help retain information.
