Also looking to hear what in your experience has been the reason that impedes the exec presence someone could potentially bring in a senior leadership setting. How does that differ for a M vs. F candidate?

There’s some good YouTube videos on this (some bad as well!) but I would start there first so you understand the basics before going onto live classes and tutorials etc.

Thanks D1. Any specific ones you recommend?

But when I saw the outline for the CFF material and there seems to be a lot of topics so I was wondering if the review course was sufficient considering this exam is also multiple choice. Thanks!
