I Studied Only 2 To 3 Weeks Per Exam

“If you’re looking for a worthwhile alternative to combing through the textbooks, look no further. The interface is simple to use, and the information is streamlined and presented in an efficient manner. I studied an average of only 2-3 weeks per exam, and I felt well-prepared for each. AssociatePI is a total game changer. 10/10 would recommend.”

John D. Lloyd – Underwriter

Passed CPCU® 500, CPCU® 520, CPCU® 530, and CPCU® 540 with AssociatePI

Translated In An Easier To Understand Format

“I ran into a brick wall with Finance and Accounting (CPCU® 540). There were so many formulas to comprehend and memorize, I just felt overwhelmed with all the material. Unfortunately, I took my exam and was unable to pass it my first go through. As you may know, the exams are not cheap, and I was determined not to waste my money on a failed attempt again. That’s when I stumbled across AssociatePI. I couldn’t have been more pleased. They were able to condense the information down and able translate it in an easier to understand format. I found this an excellent tool, and would recommend to anyone looking for an edge to get over the hump. No testimonial would be complete without the results; I passed!”
