Series 79 Exam: Knopman courses - Exam is long and comprehensive

I passed the Series 79 this morning with a really solid score thanks primarily to the Knopman training program. The exam is long and fairly comprehensive. But, Knopman provided some highly relevant data in addition to their study manual, video course, practice exams, etc. You still have to put in the study time. But the Knopman course is strong...in case anybody was wondering.

i have been seeing many posts on Knopman. to me, it seems as if these are folks employed by the prep firm. i could be wrong here, but it just seems strange

Me, I don't work for Knopman, I work at an investment bank – and I definitely give Knopman's training a big thumbs up. In the last week, I scored high 80s and low 90s on the two FINRA license tests, after taking Knopman online courses. My bank suggested STC but I decided to go with Knopman because of consistently high marks on WSO thread posts. Yes, it requires a time investment, but (to me at least) it's worth it to pass the tests on the first try with strong scores. To be fair, I haven't even looked at STC materials; from what I've read on WSO they're somewhat off base. Just in case anyone is looking for alternatives, I have heard a couple of professionals say good things about Kaplan.
