Why is the language of the Learning Outcome Statements (LOS) different from the curriculum?
The LOS are protected under the CFA Institute's copyright, and we don't have permission to duplicate them verbatim. Therefore, we've rephrased the LOS and included alphabetical labels (a, b, c, …) to simplify cross-referencing with the original LOS in the curriculum when needed.
