Bryant self paced or Brent Danilo fast track. In any event use Brett for the review course. Every advisor I know who passed has used him, including me. Best of luck!

I used Dalton Education and passed on my first attempt. I didn't do any review course either- I just used the practice exam questions extensively.

So I am a W-2 salaried CFP at a small IRA and I have a neighbor who runs his own practice and asked if I knew anyone who would be looking for part time paraplanning work. After thinking about it I got to wondering if its compliant and okay for an advisor to do something like that on the side for extra income or would that be considered a conflict on interest as an OBA?

I recently had my final round with one of the partners at Mck. I start my initial structure as to what areas / questions to probe and he just jumps in goes “no” “no” after each bullet. While I wasn’t an expert on the topic, I dont think I was way off-base. His reaction kinda threw me off. I got nervous and was out of structure the rest of the time. Was his reaction normal? Wouldn’t you let someone finish their initial hypothesis? Whether its correct or not is proved later and then synthesized.
