    Patrick, how does this compare to BIWS, which I believe you used to offer a discount for? How does it compare to the self study TTS?

    Hey KKS - yes, we used to have an affiliate partnership with BIWS and I think their video course is solid (from everything I've heard and from the lessons I've watched).

    The WSP self-study course goes into more depth technically also has video tutorials and also sends you the physical material for reference.

    The discount outlined above for the IB Bootcamps is if you prefer to have live instruction. It's a more expensive option but for some it is the best way to make sure you are forced to learn the material.

    I will ask the CEO of WSP to chime in on more specifics between difference with TTS.

    Obviously I'm a little biased, but I will be happy to add my two cents on the differences between Wall Street Prep and TTS.

    Boot camps:
    Wall Street Prep boot camps are $975 (with the WSO special).
    TTS course is $6,000 ($5,000 for early registration).

    Duration:
    Wall Street Prep boot camps are three days long while TTS are five days long. Both cover essentially the same material, with the difference being that TTS covers LBO and Comps Modeling live, while Wall Street Prep covers them after live training via a robust self study program.

    Materials:
    Wall Street Prep materials are more comprehensive and intuitive. Our philosophy is to use a step-by-step approach, where you start with a blank spreadsheet and go through modular, easy to follow steps so that we can cram in a lot of detail without overwhelming you. If you want to really to mimic the experience of a banker, the Wall Street Prep program is designed for you.

    Excel Add-In:
    Those enrolling in Wall Street Prep programs (both boot camps and self study) get free access to the Boost Excel Add-In, which enables you to format and audit financial models faster than with native Excel. TTS offers a Macro Kit, but it frankly doesn't hold a candle to Boost. You can see Boost in action at www.wspanalytics.com

    Self study program:
    As far as I know the TTS package doesn't include critical models like LBO Modeling. Frankly, I think that BIWS and WST are better comps to Wall Street Prep's self study. You can see a head-to-head comparison chart at::

    Hey Matan,

    Do attendants get all the same ,arterial and resources that one would receive through the purchase of the premium package?

    Also, although I know you are obviously biased, what is your experience with individuals placing this certification (or that of any other similar course) on their resume? Does this reflect positively on the candidate, or is it something that they expect you to know and don't want to see on your resume. To clarify I mean just listing it as a single point, not creating an entire experience out of it.

    Thanks in advance

    Attendees receive access to similar material - the same content as in the premium package, but the manuals are modified somewhat to work better in a live class setting, You get access to the same unlimited e-mail support for 24 months following enrollment in either the live boot camp or the premium package.

    Regarding the certification - I actually wrote a blog article about this a few weeks ago so I'll paste below:

    Trainees that complete Wall Street Prep’s Premium Package or live seminars are eligible for Wall Street Prep’s Certification in Financial & Valuation Modeling. Certification is issued only upon passing an online examination (70% is the passing score) which tests the concepts taught in the Premium Package and live seminars.

    Why is certification important?
    Certification enables trainees to place this credential on their resumes, since simply enrolling in a program does not signal to recruiters that one actually completed the program.

    Do recruiters really care?
    In a nutshell, some do and some do not. The primary determinants of whether a candidate will get an interview are GPA, reputation of the undergraduate or MBA program, networking prowess, and past work experience. If you do not have those things in place, a certification will not help you.

    However, when those other elements are in place, the certification can help “round out” the profile. The reason is that since Wall Street Prep works directly with corporate clients, the certification is a “seal of approval” of sorts that hinge on the reputations of the training providers.

    At Wall Street Prep we consistently receive calls from employers to validate certification claims on candidates’ resumes – employers would only do this if the certification mattered. For international students and students that come from a liberal arts background, certification is a highly effective way to demonstrate basic competence in financial concepts and modeling.

    Is there a downside?
    Some have argued that such a credential may potentially be counter-productive because it will expose the trainee to more challenging technical questions. This is a red herring; it is true that the more candidates represent that they know during interviews, the more they will be challenged. But this is not unique to candidates who complete a program like this: A finance major will undoubtedly receive more challenging technical questions than a music major. But stronger resumes are also more likely to lead to an interview in the first place. From our experience, if the candidate is careful about not “overselling” the experience, the advantages of using such a Certification as a credential far outweigh any perceived risk.

    I'm wondering how you get the 35% discount. When I went to checkout, the discount for the bootcamp was 15% ($230).

    The 35% off is for students using a .edu email address I believe. I should have listed that in the original post. Did it work with the .edu or are you not a student?

    Thanks,
    Patrick

    I am a student at a Canadian university, and our email addresses have a .ca extension as opposed to .edu. I haven't signed up, but was considering it with the 35% discount. Is there any other way to get the discount without having a .edu extension?

    Unfortunately, the system does not automatically accept .ca extensions, (only .edu) so it has to be done manually by first ordering with the 15% discount (using the .ca email address) and then forwarding the order receipt to support@wallstreetprep.com. They will then add the incremental 20% discount.

    I cant find the 2nd bootcamp in Dubai from Dec 9-12 on the registration site. Please check

    This seminar was cancelled – it was our first oil and gas specific training in Dubai and did not get much traction. We will keep running a regular boot camp in Dubai twice a year (we just completed a great seminar this weekend, and the next one will be in the spring with dates up on the site shortly).

    Are these course ultra competitive? If I had minimal knowledge would I be the bastard child and would my inefficiency be exploited?...or is it a great place to learn the game for any skill set prior to becoming an analyst?

    I am a dual econ/finance major and have only just started my actual finance training.

    I did it as a humanities student, with about 90 minutes of accounting experience (bought a textbook, flipped through it).

    So the answer is: absolutely not.

    The prerequisites for the Premium Package are at least 1 semester of financial accounting as well as beginner level knowledge of Excel. Trainees without this background, would need to enroll in our beginner’s “Crash Course in Accounting” and the “Excel Online Crash Course” which are both $39 add-ons and available when checking out online.
