Burnham's preparation materials have played a key role in helping me to prepare for several exams. When you supplement the Burnham system with your regular reading (and course work), there is no better way to prepare. Since there is always so much information presented to you in any single assignment, Ray's materials help you to organize all of the information and help you to effectively focus on the critical points.
This method has helped me to learn the material more effectively ... at a much faster pace. Ray is passionate about his work, and he unequivocally guarantees that you will be satisfied. Thanks for caring Ray ... you and your materials are AWESOME!!

In the past 2 1/2 years I have completed the INS, API, AIS, and CPCU. I began using The Burnham System with INS 23. I had previously completed INS 21 and 22 before using your study method. I must say that your program with guaranteed results definitely works. In today's society it is very refreshing to receive and use a product that is better than the promise. I have just completed 7 years in the insurance industry after having a 24 year career in the Army. I was recently promoted to Senior Underwriter in Personal Lines. While I'm sure that my performance played a key role in the promotion, I am also certain that my studies gained the attention of my peers and supervisors.
Your system minimized my study time, which allowed me to focus on the key points. I personally paid for 2 of your course guides while the company picked up the bill for the rest. The cost versus results is immeasurable. I appreciate your contribution to the industry. Thanks very much for all you do,

The INS 23 is the 3rd course that I'll be using your study guides with. I'm HOOKED!!! I appreciate the way you explain the material in layman's terms. I can read the other manual and then wonder what I had just read. The INS 23 is the last one in this AU series that I have to take. However, since you have made it easier, I'm looking forward to possibly delving into some other applicable courses as well.On the AU 65 &66, every morning first thing before I did anything else, I would read the 5 or 6 pages in that chapter every day. (It was quick, easy reading.). I didn't try to memorize anything. I just read an assignment a day. It took me 20-30 minutes, then I was done for the day. I did that every day for weeks. The material being covered started becoming more and more familiar. When it came down to "crunch" time right before the test, I don't feel that I had to study and "cram" as hard as I have done in the past. Thanks again!!!!
