I used the American College program and did just fine. I also used the Zahn review and that was very helpful!

I agree with Brett danko. 30 of us at Merrill did it in 6 months. 29 passed the first time. They hired him to come to our office. At the very least do the review course

I'm doing Bryant University 'S online. Not too expensive but I also paid $600 for the books.

FSU has a fast track program intended to be completed in 12 months and you pay for each class as you go

There is a program that will have you finishing it in 6-7mo. I’ll respond back if I can find the name.

I would recommend American College Sed study to compete the modules as fast as you can, then a crash weekend course(I prefer Zahn) about 1 month out from actual exam date

Self study’, not “Sed"

I’ll be joining amex in disputes (band 28). Salary discussion is yet to happen however, HR told me in our first discussion that the budget for this role is 7 LPA and she won’t go beyond that. My current CTC is 6.5 LPA. Should I negotiate on the salary once I receive the offer?

Have heard HR usually have a good margin and candidate should never accept the first offer even if the salary was discussed in the very first round.
