Kaplan has an expansive, thorough educational program that prepares students to take the CFP® exam. It is very organized, multi-faceted, and provides extra help and guidance. I attribute my success to the program's lecture videos, books, notes, and supplemental information. I would highly recommend Kaplan to any prospective student wanting to pursue their CFP® certification.
