I was really excited to take the class with my wife to help us both get on the same page. I was excited to have some interaction with people who have similar goals as us, but we did not find anything like that here. The teacher basically just came in read straight from the book and pushed the button on the dvd player. She didn't give us a chance to or encourage us to participate as a group. Each class it felt like she prepared maybe 5 minutes right before class, and presented us with a cliff notes version of the lesson, then turned on DVD. I was really excited but always left blah each night. I get more out of the radio and you-tube podcasts then i did from the class.

When originally purchased it stated I could go through with a group to refresh when I wanted. However, when I signed up and started the refresher course there was no online access without paying again. This to me is false advertising. Thus my disappointment.

The class was very clique like that I attended though my wife and I did learn quite a lot to help us on our journey. This review is being colored by the experience of the class but what we learned was invaluable!!!
Coordinator should have stuck to Dave Ramsey's Teachings

I am a huge fan of Dave Ramsey and his principals. I regularly listen to his podcast and have read several of his books. So I was extremely excited to take FPU when it was offered at my church but was sadly disappointed. The circle discussions were not at all within the linings of Dave's teachings. When subjects came up such as keeping a credit card open or having a joint bank account when you are married, they were tip toed around by the coordinator as it seemed he feared their judgement. The coordinator himself stated that he also keeps a credit card open apparently for emergencies. Our circle discussions always seemed to contradict what I would hear on the radio show or read in the Total Money Makeover and are what ultimately led to me choosing to stop attending the class. However, on the positive side, the resources are amazing as were the 9 video lessons, so I will continue my journey on my own. I only wish I could have benefited from the group sessions.

I am a co-coordinator of this class. Request was made in the beginning to have me signed up as such. this was not done!! I called Brian Bush and he said he had me signed in as Co-coordinator. Yet one week later I cannot sign in as a Co-coordinator and the class ONLY shows Tim Tamerler as the Coordinator.
