Sean Purcell’s Testimonials

Sean helped me pass the SBL exam. Having previously failed the exam twice, I felt quite hopeless at the beginning. Sean provided a unique learning approach, easy to understand, comprehensive, and concise.

Also, he has reviewed my practice questions, and provided individual feedback and guidance along the way, including 3 mock exams. The course is very well structured and designed, and supported me in finally passing the SBL exam on my third attempt and becoming an ACCA affiliate. Highly recommend!
