  • "I have just passed my exam first time, once again, relying mainly on your study notes. The calculation workbook was very useful, helping me to understand and work through the calculations, as were the mock exams giving me practice for the exam itself. Thank you!"
    Paul JacksonPaul JacksonPartner, Professional Practice Services, Worcestershire
  • Your MP3 audio masterclasses were of great quality.  I felt they reminded me of some things I had not thought about for some time and prompted some wider study.  The content was accurate, relevant and up to date for the exam and the length of each class was very good.  The approach was not patronising like so many learning MP3's.  I would definitely recommend.

  • "The R06 case study analysis was fantastic!  There was nothing in the exam that wasn't covered.  Brand was recommended to me by a colleague who said "you don't need anything else" and they were correct. I would happily recommend your services."
    Edward BarstowEdward BarstowWealth Account Manager, Aviva, Sheffield
  • "A really great resource. Of particular use was the audio masterclass which was constantly on whilst driving between client meetings. This void of "dead time" was filled with a productive revision session instead. I combined this with the study notes which was far easier to digest than the AF3 manual. This paper has the lowest number of candidates passing out of all the AF4 papers and I was delighted to pass this first time, as well as the corresponding JO5 paper."
    Chris BinnsChris BinnsIndependent Financial Adviser, Model Wealth Management, York
  • "I've used your resources for 3 exams so far and have always passed first time.  I find these questions help to highlight those areas in which I am weak and which may need further study.  I also find that questions in the exam are phrased in a way that I would not normally use, and that reading mock questions helps me to be aware of and alert to these.  Your mock papers were invaluable in helping me to prepare for my exams."

  • The Brand analysis prepared me perfectly for the R06 exam. Thank you for such a great resource.
    Damien GoodallDamien GoodallLocal Mortgage and Protection Manager, Lloyds Banking Group, Plymouth, Devon
  • I passed the exam and got 86%, your analysis was a massive help in achieving this.

  • Your AF7 resources really helped me prepare for the exam. This is the second time I have used your resources for an AF exam and have passed both, so I am really happy.
    NicolaNicolaPrincipal, Reynolds & Co, Peterborough
  • I passed R01-R06 with a 100% success rate, and a lot of that has been down to the Brand study materials that really simplify the learning process. The practice exams for R01-R05 were great, as all answers were explained at the back of each paper. For R06 the case study breakdowns were really simple to understand and covered a lot of what was in the actual exam. I’ve recommended Brand to all my colleagues that are studying for R0 exams, and I will certainly be using your services again when I move on to the AF exams.

  • I just wanted to say a huge thank you to your team! I had an email conversation with your technical team, and the speed and clarity of your responses, plus the friendliness inherent in the tone was a breath of fresh air. I passed my exam last week and your support in those moments of doubt and confusion around particular questions and scenarios was brilliant, as are your training notes and resources generally.
