Frequently Asked Questions

 

The number of hours, from 2 on up, and where to spend them depends on your specific goals and the span of exam topics you need to cover.

Many Exam Success students use tutoring as a study supplement and they generally have a sense of what their strengths and weaknesses are and want to drill down on specific topics, concepts or questions they find challenging. With the focused attention tutoring delivers, they are able to get over the passing score.

The decision as to how many tutoring hours to take ultimately will come down to your specific situation and needs — there is no set tutoring syllabus.

If you think you might be interested in many hours of tutoring, it is suggested you start with one or two initial sessions to ensure that your coaching sessions are adequately useful.

You can work with Prof. Gordon (one of world’s best tutors for the CFA, CFP, CIM, CSC Program exams) no matter where you live thanks to online conferencing technology.

Exam Success’ live online tutoring provides a real-time, interactive experience, and is available to anyone with an internet connection from the comfort of any place at a time that is convenient for you (tutoring times are subject to availability). We use the Zoom platform to ensure you receive the best possible instruction in a highly engaging digital environment.

Exam Success is a leader in the Financial Services exam preparation industry and we feel we offer extremly high-quality preparation.
