Results That Matter

"I PASSED my CFA exam Prof. Gordon! I'm crying with joy right now... My score was very near the 90th percentile too, professor. I am in debt to you for all the opportunity you gave me... you are the very reason that I passed... I would not have done this without you. You are amazing, professor. I'm speechless right now."

Michael Tofilis

"I passed the Level III CFA exam. If it weren’t for you, I don’t think I could have ever cleared this exam (within this decade). Thank you Exam Success! I’m even thanking the guy who told me about you. You have no idea. Cheers,"

Jonathan James

"Brian is an exceptional Professor! He really gave me the understanding of finance that I needed to succeed in the industry, and pass all levels of the CFA curriculum. He is very clear when explaining new or complex topics, focused on understanding the material rather than memorizing it. His sense of humour made those long business school days more bearable. My friends and I always looked forward to his teaching and wished more university instructors were as fun to learn from."

Jason Marten

"I just wanted to thank you personally for providing such a great CFP prep course! I passed despite the very low exam pass rate. I utilized and relied heavily on your CFP material for the exam, and it paid off. I actually purchased the entire Gobeil's study material, only to soon realize it was near impossible to get through 2000 pages of notes. Even his 1000 questions (which were interesting) were largely out of scope for the exam. That is when I decided to purchase your course - I just wish I didn't waste my money on Gobeil's course, lol. I will be sure to recommend your course to my colleagues in the industry."
