I have just completed (and passed) the FWS program, in my case I bought the manual (for self-study) and did the exam online. I thought the manual was fantastic, well written, packed with useful information (not just for the exam but also for my day job in a wine store) and a valuable keepsake for future use. I also did the exam 100% online and I found the experience to be non-threatening and generally hassle-free. The software tools for the exam were intuitive to use and worked quite well. The exam was tough but fair - no surprises. Overall my experience with the FWS has been superb - I highly recommend it!

The FWS Program is a very in-depth serious program for the wine professional or enthusiast. There is no other program like it and attaining the qualification should be a highly recognized achievement.
