Show Notes

In this episode I am going to take you through the step by step process on how to study and prepare for the CWI Exam and give you all of the resources to help you get prepared for the hardest exam I have ever taken in my life. This is a very difficult Exam to take and it will require a lot of time, effort and attention to detail. But if you are able to pass this test, it can be a very lucrative investment.
