Hello there to everyone and apologies for my blatant theft of JK Rowling there!

For anyone who is new to paraplanning, financial planning or just our profession in general, firstly congrats on choosing a fab career and secondly, congrats on being a super smart cookie and joining the Big Tent.

This is the best place there is to get help on every aspect of paraplanning, from when your just starting out and aren't sure of where to go for the best resources or support to get you started, to those who have been at it a while and are looking for more techy help.

One of the things out there to help newcomers to the paraplanning party is the Personal Finance Society's Paraplanner Pathways. This was put together by their Paraplanner Panel and is a useful little guide to help you get going on your paraplanning journey. The links can be found on the Paraplanners Powwow website here:

https://paraplannerspowwow.co.uk/paraplanner-pathway/

The Panel are working on more stuff too so keep your eyes peeled for updates.

Welcome to the gang and if you need help, just give anyone here a holler! :)

    Hi @Misper

    Welcome :-)

    Have you taken a look at the CPD & Exams category? There may be a few pointers there that are helpful.

    Good luck.

    Hi @Misper

    R02 was my demon (hoping not to make you feel worse by saying that!). I passed on my third attempt last year. It is a hard exam. For me, the thing that got me there in the end was exam questions. I bought the packs from The CII and literally spent the weeks leading up to the exam going over and over questions. It's a great way of discovering where your weak points are, so that you can go over them in the study text and do your own research.

    Revision Mate also has a study forum for each unit of study, I've also found this really helpful too, plus you get chatting to people studying the same unit. Stick with it, if I can do it, you can!
