New Hire w/ Edward Jones
I am a new member to the form and first and foremost would like to say in advance thank you for you comments. I am a new hire with Edward Jones. I have read a lot of different opinions regarding the company. As a newbie can anyone give me advice on first passing the series 7 and also their experience, if any, with Edward Jones? Once again thank you in advance for your comments.
Study like you never studied before. I recently took and passed the test and I was lucky to have the "PassPerfect". The questions is almost identical to the actual exam. If you have the funds, order the CD on the official site. Its worth it!
You will do fine on the test as Jones has a great study plan. Some of the best pass rates in the industry. Keep in mind Jones is one of the few firms that are hiring new brokers. It is a tough fight you have in front of you. Don’t listen to the Jones supporters on this board. You must follow the script to a T. You must drink the kool-aid because if you don’t they will find a quicker way to cut the cord on you if you are not working out. Kiss the arse of the IRD GP’s and this will help. I am being serious here. Results are one thing but at Jones appearance can carry just as much weight.
Use the Passtrack Book and study that and also take as many tests from various sources as you can. Some books you will find errors though I have found. But try to understand Bonds and Options. If you don't KNOW these topics you will not pass. I passed on my first try with nothing but a Passtrack Series 7 book.
I work for EDJ and I am very happy here. The key to the 7 is to buy a book of sample tests. That helps tremendously. Also, study your ass off.
