A stack of coated conductors is a perspective configuration for various applications of high temperature superconductors. We present an efficient fast Fourier transform-based numerical method for magnetization problems for a stack of flat films of the same (arbitrary) shape and compare it with the recently proposed finite element methods. For stacks containing a large number of densely packed films an accurate solution can be obtained as a properly rescaled solution for a stack of only several films. For an infinite stack the problem simplifies and becomes similar to that for a single film.
