    That is pretty standard -- Training the Street is the best program but if you haven't done the work before it can take a while. Better to suffer through it in training than on the job

    citigroup doesn't use training the street...we don't get much homework and are out pretty early (around 5:30/6)

    How long does it take to complete the TTS training?

    TTS is a great program. There is no way you were there until midnight every night. If you were there everything until midnight you probably needed more guidance or help. YOu should only have had 2 hours (max 3) of homework a night on top of the 9-5 class.

    I took a valuation and modeling course with them and found it very helpful. Great instructors, lots of BB use them, and a good concise format.

    I think most of the firms are using training the street, but you shouldn't be there until midnght every night. did scott rostan teach your course?

    How many different trainers are there with TTS?

    Also, anybody out there had Wall St. Training w/ Hamilton?

    My friend took TTS, but I was closed out, so went to The Analyst Exchange. It was great, there are no 6 hour days, no one gets out at midnight.

    They courses are set up like a "virtual classroom" (as they call it) where you dial into skype for the lessons, so you can take them from your room. The lectures were also separated from workshop sessions where you work directly with a trainer going through the model. It's great because it give you the ability to work at you own speed.

    Also you can take the classes whenever you want not all in one week...it's definitely for me at least a better learning format that 6 hour lectures

    Does TTS offer claases to the public where anyone can take them if you pay?

  • pbibman's picture

    Yes but only 2x a year. (I could be wrong).

    At The Analyst Exchange you can take them whenever you'd like

    But TTS is by far the best. took it as an anlayst and associate

  • pbibman's picture

    Can't argue that because I never took it, but my friend who took TTS was up until midnight every night and paid 2x what I did. I ended up landing a job at Morgan Stanley as a Math major (I can't justify it was due to the courses but I learned everything I needed to know) www.theanalystexchange.com (if that's still it)

    Hmm...I just took the free lecture at the Analyst Exchange. It does look like an interesting approach. I don't see why you have to be up until midnight for 5 days straight for a modeling course when you can take it via skype at your time. They're also pretty flexible about refunds if I don't like it, so I think I'll give it a try....let you know

    (Analyst Exchange i mean)

    They had offered free lectures at out school. I'm deciding if I should take the whole program.

    My take was that it was clear that they went through (and trained) analyst programs as they have a very nice way of explaining things in a way that anyone would understand using simple but complete examples.

    I also liked the material. Very sufficient, to the point, with minimal repetitions. I usually lose mycconcentration when I see too many simple examples.

    The new analysts took Dealmaven, and they seem pretty buschleague in excel compared to my class who took TTS.

    I'm looking for something to take over the winter break. I've narrowed it down to:

    1) TTS
    2) Analyst Exchange
    3) Swiss
    4) Wall St. Prep

    Anybody know anything?

    There is also Adkins Matchett & Toy:

    Spin23: does Training the street offer classes during the winter break? Man, I just found out they held a seminar at my school last weekend, and I missed it!

  • spin23's picture

    I think the do in New York. I'm also looking into the analyst exchange. My friend's doing it now. He's says its about the same as training the street, but you work live with a trainer via internet...so, i guess no timing constraints?? It's much cheaper too. They came to our school for a free lecture which was helpful, but want more feedback if anyone's got it.
