We've got YOU Covered!

A successful candidate reported back to us that success on the Exam required:

  1. an extensive technical knowledge of many, many topics; but
  2. more importantly well-developed exam writing skills.

We have worked with candidates who have exceptional knowledge of financial planning but choke on the Exams. The most common error is failing to manage time, but there are many others. So, let us help you ensure that you have adequate technical knowledge but also the exam writing skills to get the marks you deserve.

    “The case study backgrounds were each 6 or 7 pages long and the last two pages were the financial statements. In using your study aid, I learned to avoid wasting time anticipating questions that weren't asked and focus on only the background information required to answer the questions.

    It helps to be able to get the information out of the case study backgrounds. I took your advice and started the case studies first as it allowed me to take sufficient time to complete both case studies. I knew I would struggle if I left them to the last hour. Thanks for putting together a great study aids.”

    “I relied entirely on the Personal Financial Planner's Manual as my study material during preparation for the CFP® Exam. I found the material very detailed, technically sound and insightful. Your preparation guide was particular helpful in focusing my study time.
    In my financial planning practice, I have made reference to the Manual on numerous occasions. I keep it on my credenza within arm's reach. The manner in which the material is presented is very applicable to everyday situations and I apply the concepts outlined with ease.”
