  1. Ah, No. As some who has studied under Anthony and Kaplan, I can assure you that Brightwood has watered down the coursework. Whereas when the company was Anthony or even Kaplan, the customer support operators had a firm grasp on the course work on offer, now they are flogging classes in different states and don’t know what they are selling. The workbooks are riddled with errors too.


    • Hi Steve,

      Appreciate your insight here. The last time I did continuing education it was from a tiny school whose owner and coach was friends with my managing broker. Quantifying and qualifying the many different courses available is difficult enough, but nearly impossible when they keep changing curriculum, owners, course materials, pricing, etc. etc. We try to keep our articles as updated as possible, but invariably things will change. Thanks again.
