My online instructor was knowledgeable and exhibited a true desire to help me succeed on test day. Even though the course was online, I was able to ask questions and interact as if we were in a classroom together. The archived classes also served as a great study tool.        

Nicholas G., 2013 Level I

Kaplan Schweser has outstanding faculty. Having your own personal professor online, live and on-demand, has made my preparation for the CFA exam much more efficient than it would have been otherwise. The professors deliver the lectures as if you are sitting right in front of them. Very impressive! Thank you!!!
