Adventis or Wall Street Prep?

I am looking to take one of these financial modeling courses at my school in order to get the certification and show IB recruiters that I mean business. I can either take the Adventis course or the Wall Street Prep one. I am curious to know which one is better in terms of the actual instruction as well as if there is any difference in the level of prestige of them both. Any help or advice on this would be appreciated.

I took both, Adventis in College and WSP for continuing education at work. Preferred Adventis for the macro book they provided. Still use it 3 years later. Neither will really prepare you for building or maintaining financial models until you just do it

was in this same position not too long ago and opted to go for the WSP course. a couple reasons - one, I don't believe adventis comes with videos you can later watch online, while you could with WSP (and download them as well). and two, the certification test for Adventis is advertised as being extremely difficult, with only a ~60% pass rate, while the WSP certification test is online and not terribly difficult. I realized it would really suck to shell out a ton of money for the certification and not even potentially get it, especially when most investment banks won't know the difference in difficulty between the tests. So I went with WSP mostly because I wanted a near guarantee that I'd be able to list the certification on my resume
