As there are various types of investment theory, each with a unique scheme, we recommend beginning with the introductory course on securities investment theory in May.  (Details of the introductory course and an application form can be found HERE)

 Regarding the actual course contents, we will proceed by covering frequently appearing past questions using exam preparation materials.  Understanding will develop more quickly if you become familiar with technical investment terms, formulas, etc.
