Has anyone on this forum used this resource or know anyone who has?

I have a coworker who has taken the FS exam and struggled with it and is now looking for some organized, structured study program/materials to help him study effectively for the exam. He's at a close to entry-level salary, so $500 is a significant investment for him.

John has a statement of "guaranteed pass" on the linked page. That's an awfully high bar to be promising, but if the track record of those who have attended or bought the recorded version bears it out, then I'd like to be able to recommend the program to my coworker.

I'm helping him to put together a study plan, but it's been 25 years since I took the FS and from all I've heard, the test content has changed quite a bit during that time, so my ability to help him might not cover all the areas currently reflected on the exam.

I am not familiar with this program, but as John Pavlik passed away recently, I would not think the program will be continued.

Of course, I could be wrong.
