What do ya do when you passed the seven on the frist go around and the Insurance exam then can' t seem to get passed the 66?? I would really appreciate some input from some seasoned vets. (I work for Jones and I know I'm gone)
The 63 is no longer an option at Jones. It's strictly 7 and 66.
I don't think you're in danger of being fired just because you can't pass the 66. The 7 is the one they harp on.
I thought the 66 was the more difficult of the tests. Print out the review on Joneslink and read it over and over. You can pass it.
Yep, everyone that had the 7 and 63 was required to get the 66. Can you imagine being 15-20 years into the business, working 25 hours a week and then being told you have to pass that booger? As you can imagine, there was a lot of moaning and groaning going on.
I have yet to use my 66. We have a $100k minimum for fee accounts, and at this point in my career, I have to have that upfront pop to survive.
ML gives you two chances to pass the 66. I have seen several guys do fine on the 7 and not be able to pass the 66 after multiple tries.
I cannot imagine being a rep for the last 10 to 20 years and not have the 65 or 66
Dinosaurs still roam at Jones!
advice for passing: take a cram class and buy a book with series 66 test questions. It helped me a lot & I did pass the first time.
The first time that I took the 66 I made a 50; yea I know, I was sick and druged. The 2nd 69 and the 3rd 70. Thanks for the information about not having to be sponsored I thought that went for the 7 and the 66 but I'm glad to know I was wrong. Also for the idea about the 63. This was a huge help!!!
Thank you for your words of encouragement. I am still waiting to hear from my ATL and my RL for the official word.
they will not give you another chance. i know a few people who have failed three times and they were let go by jones. someitmes they dont even give people a third chance. it's a hard test though.
