Background: I'm studying for my CFP currently. A few people in the industry have suggested that I study and pass the Series 65 to put my resume in a better light since I'm a career changer.

I'm also on a very tight budget. I've seen people recommending Kaplan but it costs $150+ -- what would you guys recommend?   I considered the Pass the 65 book but the author / publisher has a ton of fake positive 5-star reviews on Amazon (I went through each reviewer's profile, and they all only have 1 review -- and that's the Pass the 65 glowing review). That turned me off because I don't know how good the book is for sure.   Would using the free Investopedia study guide be advisable? I'm not sure how updated it is.   Thanks in advance guys!

Take out a loan or make sacrifices to raise the funds needed to get good prep materials.
