"Morning Joel, Just wanted to say a big THANK-YOU for everything you did preparing me for the FASEA exam. I received my result a few weeks ago and was relieved (and surprised) to find a PASS mark. It’s one of those exams walking out all finished and done and you really have no idea how you went… In high school and university I would underperform on exams. They really let me down, I was hopeless. Your content was thorough and organised and gave me the confidence to go in with the best possible chance of passing. Keep up the great work – and thanks again. "
"Joel , thank you for providing this very important program – I thought the reference material was fantastic , the two half day tutorials invaluable with all of your handy hints about where to direct your limited time and though I found the practice exam an emotional challenge (40 plus years since a three hour exam)... It prepared me for what to expect from the exam and I was much more relaxed for having completed the practice exam. I don’t believe anyone should attempt the exam without investing in what you have to offer and I commend you for your contribution to getting as many of us through this misguided attempt at elevating the public’s perception of advisers as possible. Please keep up the good work , your fee is worth every dollar."
“It is hard for me to express how angry I am at FASEA and ACER for the rollout of the Financial Advisor exam. My first attempt at the exam was to follow the FASEA Exam Preparation Guidance which had 6,000 plus pages of reading involved, which in my view provided no guidance at all. My second attempt at the exam was to follow myIntegrity 200 plus page workbook and appendices, which I was able to deep dive, and I passed the exam with some confidence. The gap in guidance regarding the exam is frankly appalling- there are peoples professional lives at stake- luckily for the Financial Planning community myIntegrity were kind enough to fill it. Thank you.”
"I received my results today from the November exam and happy to say I passed. I have to say I was really anxious to sit this particular exam as its been a while since I have sat one. I chose a number of different pathways to study as I wanted to be extra prepared. I did the TAL two day workshop, the Kaplan online exam, worked of the FASEA site plus did the MyIntegrity program. I would have to say MyIntegrity was the best preparation by far, especially the online exam as it’s the closest thing to the real exam. The suggested reading materials were great but the online exam was invaluable. I would absolutely recommend this to anybody wanting to sit the exam. Thanks again and Merry Christmas."
"Hey Joel, I just need to tell you I passed my FASEA exam. I want to tell you how much I really appreciated your support through it. Hooking up with you and myIntegrity really made the difference. It was without doubt the best decision I made. Thank you so much. I wouldn’t have passed without you (and the myIntegrity program). More, most financial planners work alone or in small partnerships. You were able to provide some much needed personal support and confidence boosting comments, just when I needed them most. You really made the difference to my exam preparations. I can remember you sending me an email just before I sat the exam where you said something along the lines of “You’ll be ok. Just knock it out of the ball park!” For some reason, that phase really lifted my spirits and at various time, particularly when I was waiting two hours for the Proctoring session to get started, I thought of it a couple of times and it really helped me settle and focus...I would to say to anyone, particularly older advisers like myself, that they really need to team up with yourself and take the extra steps to prepare for the exam. Again I really appreciate your forbearance through it all and support in getting me through. The best(est) wishes. 😊"
"Thank you for providing the excellent FASEA Exam Preparation Program. I am pleased to let you know that I received a "Pass" on today's June result release! 🙂 I am really so happy and couldn't believe that I've made it! ...the good thing is I've passed the exam ...I wanted to send you a "BIG THANK YOU" note for helping out. Without your tutoring service, it would be very hard for me. I was confused in understanding the intent and expectation of the exam before I enrolled into your program. I had made the right decision to go for it. The program was so concise, straight to the main points. Materials were so well presented and easy to read and understand. Overall, not only it helped with the exam but I also found myself acquiring new knowledge. I will definitely spread the word when I have a chance. Thank you again. :)"
"Hi Joel, Just a quick note of thanks (I passed the Exam!). Your FASEA course was instrumental in reducing the noise and making me focus on what matters most. Thank you once again."
"Hi Joel, A sigh of relief this morning with getting my PASS result for the Exam. Just thought I would send you an little “thank you” for your class, exam prep material and assistance 😊"
"Hey mate Just wanted to let you know that I PASSED my FASEA Exam 😊 Thanks once again for your assistance."
"Good morning Joel I’m writing to let you know I passed my FASEA exam – your program helped me immensely."
"Hi Joel I received good news today that I passed the FASEA June exam. Thanks for your help with the course content and discussions held, much appreciated."
"Hi Joel Thanks for assistance with exam, I found the program, hot list, and exam a great way to prepare. The actual FASEA exam were in the similar subject areas that you outlined in your course, so I felt relatively prepared. For future attendees, I would say that there were a number of ‘trick’ questions in exam where things were written in small print, or question designed to ‘throw you off’ so I would recommend read through EVERYTHING!! The other issue I had with Proctor U Sitting was how long it took to download exam and set everything up, which was nearly an hour from start time. If others are doing Proctor U going forward, allow extra time."
"Hi Joel, Thank you. I thought the course and material were really good... doing your course all online and at a quick pace was really good and convenient for me. Thanks."
"Hi Joel - I just wanted to reach out and say thank you for your help with the course. I found the material very relevant and useful. The webinars excellent. The practice exam really honed in on the particular aspects of the FASEA learning outcomes. This gave me confidence going into the exam that I had a solid grounding in the learning outcomes. What was most impressive was your responsiveness. Nothing was too much and you always responded to my many questions with precision and great explanation. Thank you very much. Overall not only did I feel my knowledge base was broadened for the exam but overall as an Adviser."
"Hi Joel - I found the practice exam to be fantastic preparation for the FASEA exam as completing it made me aware of how easy it is to lose track of time. It also helped make evident areas I needed to further study. If anything, I found that the practice questions referenced a lot to specific sections of law, which I have not heard this is done in the FASEA exam. I would recommend taking part in any of the myIntegrity courses to anyone preparing to sit the FASEA exam. Thank you for providing such useful study guidance/materials."
"Hi Joel, I received my results back yesterday (I passed! - April FASEA Exam) and just wanted to thank you for the course! I couldn’t have done it without you."
"Overall I think if I was to prepare any better for the exam, I would advise others to do the master guide (your Online Study Program option) and sit your exam, and then spend a lot of time on the fasea standards and testing yourself on which standard is breached and how they apply to a case. The standards will really unlock the entire exam...thanks for the help and the course and exam. The exam and feedback was very beneficial."
Hi Joel, Hope you are well. I am writing to you to thank you for going the extra mile with me In the last preparation for the February Fasea exam. Ii helped enormously and I passed😊. Thankyou
"Hi Joel - Thank you to Integrity Education for the comprehensive exam preparation course. The course is very well structured, you can work at your own pace, and are able to print the comprehensive summary material which is invaluable in helping you prepare for the exam. The practise exam and full feedback is brilliant as it increases your confidence in answering some of the more “ambiguous” questions you will face in the actual FASEA sitting. Worth every penny! Well done Team."
"Hi Joel - just a quick note of thanks for the preparation course, which I have no doubt gave me peace of mind about completing the FASEA Exam successfully. After the session with you, and completing your Practice Exam, there is no doubt I was more calm, better prepared, and relaxed, when it came to the real thing.”
"I have completed the practice FASEA exam through myIntergity. I must say its very very close to the actual exam. The only difference is the trick questions that FASEA imbed within the exam to throw advisers off and waste valuable time. (myIntegrity does not do this). This was an excellent practice exam and was very close to the real thing. Anyone doing this course will be very well prepared for the exam."
"Hi Joel - Yes, I can happily confirm that I passed the exam and that’s all my FASEA commitments finished now having also recently completed the Ethics bridging subject. I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you again Joel as going through your reading materials and doing the practice exam under realistic exam conditions, together with the fantastic short answer questions feedback, all was tremendously beneficial to me in feeling prepared. I’ve spoken to a number of ex colleagues at AMP Advice and happily recommended you and your company to at least half a dozen of them. Keep up the great work Joel. I was really impressed with your proactivity and commitment to getting the answers I needed in a pretty short turnaround time. You are one of the good guys and leaders that this industry desperately needs and I wish you all the best."
"I would just like to say that the myIntegrity practice exam was extremely helpful for me. I sat the Dec exam and found that I was much more prepared as to what to expect on the day from completing your course. Thank you for having this available for advisers to refer to. I have encouraged other advisers that are yet to do the exam to use your site."
"Thanks Joel. I did pass the exam – I came out of it thinking that I had done ok and would have been surprised to fail. I am pleased that I did your course – it certainly helped me understand much more than I would have, had I just relied on the FASEA reading list. I really appreciated you narrowing down the areas of the legislation. The practice exam was useful ... (and) identified quite a few gaps in my knowledge so that was very useful preparation for the real exam."
"I did find this course very handy in terms of providing good specific focus on what is required to be known to get through FASEA Exam... this course is very useful and provided me with a very good structure of information to ensure I had covered what was required to be known in the FASEA exam. Most importantly though – in my opinion – is the practice exam. The practice exam from these guys is very much like doing the real thing. Same format, same length, same reference material and also provided through an on-line format – just the same as you need to do with FASEA. I am not aware of any of the other prep courses providing this sort of comprehensive practice exam – and I found doing the practice exam extremely useful for getting familiar to Volume 4 of the Corps act under exam conditions and navigating around that body of work – so that during the real exam, I was not freaking out trying to find stuff. Additionally, from what I have seen available elsewhere, the practice exam provided by myIntegrity was the most similar to the FASEA exam in terms of depth and breadth of the real exam. Although the practice exam does NOT contain the same level of ambiguous question that I encountered during my FASEA exam. I did not find the practice exams provided by FASEA to be of any practical use in terms of preparing for the exam. I would have no problem recommending that an adviser attend the preparation course in order to put them in the best position to pass the FASEA Exam."
"Hi Joel - Thanks for your help in the FASEA exam preparation. The workshop and the course material was very useful and helped us to prepare and pass the exam. All 3 of us have passed and are very happy. I think the structure of the workshop and the notes along with the resources on the portal and the practice exam are all structured very well and definitely if any one just focuses on that, should be able to easily pass the exam."
"Hi Team, thank you so much for all the feed back (on my Practice Exam)! – it was really good information! – I really feel that this course has helped me to prepare for this exam, I feel a lot more confident about doing it now."
"Hi Joel, I did a few of the exam type practice options. Yours was good and helpful. I found yours was harder than Kaplan and more in closer to real experience. Cannot think where you can improve or change. Yours is a good mix of the true/false, short answer and multi choice. You were also prompt in marking it just before I sat the exam which I appreciated."
"As a person that is not completely familiar with the requirements that were necessary in order to complete and successfully pass the FASEA exam I have found that supporting documentation and the ability of being able to test that understanding through the practice exam supplied by myIntegrity invaluable. Joel and his team were amazing. The practice exam identified some areas that I needed to go back over and some other areas that I had omitted to study. It was excellent and the follow-up support and answers provided by Joel and his team were lengthy, descriptive and extremely helpful. I would highly recommend this service to anyone looking at providing themselves with the necessary confidence needed for their upcoming FASEA exam. I appreciate your support and professionalism. Thank you very much..."
"Hi Joel, Thanks for this. I thought the practice exam was on the money."
"Hi Joel Just wanted to let you know that I got my results from my FASEA test on the 9th December. Pass 😀 Wouldn't have got through without your practice test. Thanks so much."
"I thought the workshop was beneficial and has given me a lot of insights into the FASEA exam. The practice exam was beneficial too. It looks a lot like the actual exam that the FASEA video shown, such as navigating through the questions and accessing resources. It's helped me prepare for the exam next Monday and learning to manage my time as well."
"Joel was really helpful in understanding the exam platform, on how to answer case study, and gave detail idea on how to aim to use exam time to answers all questions. I would definitely recommend this workshop to other people."
“We recently had Joel present a very informative FASEA presentation to our Advisers at our PD Day. The session was the most highly ranked and most valuable topic conducted on the day. All our Advisers enjoyed it and it was a very interactive session. We look forward to working with Joel on our FASEA requirements moving forwards.”
“Joel Ronchi recently presented to our national adviser team and his knowledge on the FASEA requirements is exceptional. We all found Joel to be approachable and highly skilled in all things FASEA. The team is looking forward to working closely with Joel in the months ahead!”
"I think it prepared me well for the exam... (and) I was very impressed with the feedback received on the short answer questions."
"I would recommend it because I found it really informative and the hot list is great as it breaks it down for you as there is a lot of information to take in."
"Hi Joel, Thanks for coming in last week, the feedback received was excellent and everyone left feeling much more prepared with what to expect for the exam."
"Thanks Joel. Did the test on Saturday. Felt comfortable with it although some answers I now would have picked differently and some were very ambiguous or depended on individual interpretation of the questions. Would definitely say that yours was more difficult. I had to look a lot up with yours however didn't need to look up in the actual exam."
