"Knopman gave me the training and guidance I needed to pass the Series 79 exam. I was taught exactly what I needed to focus on, and through the training I was able to figure out my strengths and weaknesses I needed to work on in order to stay on track to pass."


"The preparation for the Series 79 by Knopman financial was outstanding, the test covered a wide variety of material that I would not have been able to conquer on my own. The practice tests and material were all highly beneficial to my success on the exam."


"I thought the program was set up well especially in regards to having the FINRA and IPO/Regulation stuff early on in the week...Everybody I know had no experience with most of the material coming in and passed with flying colors."
