Our Prestudy program includes prestudy books (2) with corresponding quizzes and mock exams, recorded subject matter videos, Ask Instructor bulletin board and a recommended study guide. There is a common misconception that if you have extensive industry experience or have recently completed a CFP Board registered education program that you can bypass this necessary step. On average, successful students spend 100 – 120 hours of study with the prestudy materials. This step best prepares you for the actual Live Review class.


The Live Review class has assisted in 10,000 + students in passing the CFP® Exam. The live class provides real time instruction and interaction. Our instructors are all CFP® professionals with years of real world experience. They apply their practical experience to align with testing concepts to solidify subject matter.

Upon completion of the Live Review we estimate that students will spend 60-80 hours to prepare for the CFP® exam. A class specific study plan provided at the Live Review class will guide the student down the home stretch. The post work provides more challenging questions along with extensive case work and supporting subject matter videos. A detailed assessment summary will provide students with an overview of their strengths and weaknesses.
