"Simply put, Brian Marks is an outstanding instructor. Not only does he have an incredible knowledge of the material; his delivery is succinct, he has very up to date knowledge on the test questions and an incredible sense of humor, which makes a HUGE difference"
"I just took the Series 24 Exam and wanted to say that the Knopman Financial Training services were absolutely essential in my passing. I believe they not only provide a high quality product in their manual, on-line classes, and practice exams, but also take it a step further with personalized training and follow-up. I commend Deutsche Bank in using Knopman as its exam-preparation provider and hope it continues to do so going forward."
"Knopman did a phenomenal job of preparing me for the Series 24. I've utilized other vendors in the past (at other firms), and was never given such detailed, informative material that ultimately set me up for success. "
If you come to class having read the material you should give yourself about one week to complete practice exams after the conclusion of the program before taking the examination. If you have not read the material before coming to class you will need more time after class ends.
Most students are able to finish the exam within the alloted time, without being rushed.
Though it is not mandatory to read the material before coming to class, doing so will enable you to reinforce the concepts discussed in the book. If you have not read the material prior to class you will need more time after class to prepare before you take the examination.
Assuming you are working full time while preparing for the examination, you should allow yourself two to three weeks to read through the material and another two to three weeks to complete practice exams. You should attend the live class, watch the online KIT or receive private instruction one to two weeks prior to the examination. The total study time is typically four to six weeks.
The Practice Exams questions are about the same level of difficulty as the actual exam, so you should shoot for scores in the mid to high 70s online. The questions on the actual exam are likely to be more scenario based than the practice questions. As such, it is essential that you review concepts in the book while answering practice questions rather than merely reading the rationale. If you only read the rationales you may feel unprepared to answer the more nuanced questions you are likely to see on the examination.
