Dalton Education offers two review programs, The Dalton Review and The Dalton Review Guarantee to Pass™.
The Dalton Review
Students enrolled in The Dalton Review are immersed in our core philosophy, which is to teach the material, assess student's strengths and weaknesses, then remediate those weaknesses. We believe that if our students learn the material, regardless of how a question is asked, they will get it right! Our program consists of a review readiness assessment, pre-study materials, office hours, both traditional and virtual classroom reviews, a comprehensive testbank, an exam readiness assessment, and much more. We encourage our students to attend the review lectures multiple times to make sure they've learned the material.
The Dalton Review Guarantee to Pass™
With the Dalton Review Guarantee to Pass™, we guarantee students will pass the CFP® examination the first time or we'll refund the enrollment costs 100%! Simply score 70% or better on our exam readiness quiz. Students that score 60% or higher on the exam readiness quiz have an 88% pass rate on the CFP® exam and historically half of our students score 60% or higher. Students in our Guarantee to Pass program receive everything in the Dalton Review, plus one on one coaching and supplemental study tools to guarantee their success on the CFP exam.
