3 Step Process

We recommend dedicating approximately 100 – 120 hours to the Prestudy materials before attending the Live Review Exam Prep Program class. These materials consist of two Zahn Workbooks accompanied by a series of quizzes, cases, and mock exams, all of which should be completed before the actual Live Review session. We offer corresponding prerecorded videos to align to the materials.

The Live Review Class spans 4 consecutive days, usually over a weekend, providing 34 classroom hours. With the live instruction the program lends a workbook aligning to the exam focused topics. For the live in-person classed, the program fee covers a catered networking lunch, ensuring participants can maintain allotted time allocated for lunch break. Please see testing cycle locations for a schedule. For live in-person location details, please click here.

We recommend dedicating approximately 60 – 80 hours to the Post Study materials between the last day of the Live Review Exam Prep Program classes and taking the CFP Board Exam. These materials include advanced comprehensive questions and challenging cases designed to intensify your preparation as you approach the exam date.

Amazing! I felt so prepared and confident going into and during the exam. Brandon during the live review was unmatched. He explained things in a way that made sense and stuck in memory. Thank you!


Our Prestudy program comprises two workbooks with quizzes and mock exams, supplementary subject matter videos, an Ask Instructor bulletin board, and a recommended study guide. It is important to note that some believe extensive industry experience or recent completion of a CFP Board registered education program can bypass this crucial step. However, on average, successful students invest 100 – 120 hours in studying with the Prestudy materials. Completing this step optimally prepares you for the Live Review Exam Prep Program class.


Our Live Review Exam Prep program has assisted thousands of students in successfully passing the CFP® Exam. The classes offer real-time instruction and interaction, available both virtually and in-person. Both formats maintain the same rigorous class structure.

A detailed assessment summary will offer students valuable insights into their strengths and areas needing improvement.
