Congrats Hambone!

Although I didn't score near 90, I did pass with a 78 on Friday. I saw at least 25-30 questions that were identical to TC, some of the more detailed questions that I had never seen probably hurt my score a little - should have read the book in its entirety at least once. Hambone is right in that you should take every exam twice, those are the questions that you wiill see later on.

Good luck everyone, TC is the only way to go

Congratulations Hambone and sjwhit09. That is great! I have my exam on the 9th.

So you are saying that the final exams 1-5 are a good indication of what is on the exam, including 20 to 30 actual questions.

Should I just keep going over the finals 1-5 until my exam on Monday ?

I used stc for the reading and the 1000 question practice exams and I know very well.

I have been using the TC test bank for the past month…did 2 sets of the study questions and went over the finals twice getting 89 to 98 on the finals..

Wow to finish in an hour is amazing…

I am so glad I am not the only person saying this stuff.  Maybe people really believe I was just trying to help all along and don't just work for TC.  (I do NOT work for TC).  hahaha.  Awesome job guys.  I just convinced my co-worker to get TC instead of STC.  I also told the sales manager and the people who order the material. I feel like I should get compensated for letting them know that TC is a great resource.  The fail rate here was probably 50/50 for the 66 with using STC material, I guarantee that it'll be morel ike 90/10 if they bought TC- thus they would save a LOT of money from all the retakes, and their employees would be more valuable quicker- if only people would listen!!!

Take every exam twice and a few randoms. You will see tons of repeats. Not only does it make the test much easier but it's a huge confidence builder throughout the exam. I was kind of worried bc I went through it so quick but I knew the practice exams and the book so well it was so easy. If you have the book def pay attention to what they tell you to. If you only have the tests then I am confident that if you have them down you could pass just by memorizing them, that's how many I saw. Good luck to you all

Well I'm next up. Should be taking it next week. I'll let you all know.

Apr 2, 2012 4:16 pm

I completely agree with Hambone, that is EXACTLY how I felt throughout the course of the exam!  Joebull, you'll do fine!  you've done your research on how to pass the thing, you'll pass it!

Apr 2, 2012 4:21 pm

Stamct and Joebull,  My first attempts on the TC finals were 75, 84, 86, 80 and 80. My first random I got a 93. After my first attempts, I started getting high 80s and low 90s on the exams. Despite the multiple questions that I saw repeated on the Random as I did on the Standard finals, I assumed it was because TC really wanted us to understand those questions. They really did appear on the actual exam. I don't think it would hurt to use the other course you were taking to supplement what you're seeing on TC - a few questions on the actual I had to give credit to Pass Perfect, but all in all, the 125 pages that TC created, plus the lectures and databank of tests, you really should be ok with just TC. As Hambone said,  it's a HUGE confidence builder going into the exam - the format is the same and really zero in on what Tina says to checkmark, highlight etc...she is spot on!

Good luck you guys, you'll do fine. Keep us posted!

ok will let you know...Thanks for the help

Failed the 66 today with a 73%...used only STC material and studied my behind off!!  Yes, too many things to focus on in the STC material and I wasnt able to drill down on anything.  I tried EXTREMELY hard to get that 73%.  Now that I know something like TC anyone selling their TC online material?  If so, PM me.  Thank you....

NY1982 sorry to hear that..

I also used stc and I purchased the TC test bank. I have my exam on Monday.


I agree with you, STC is loaded with information…TOO MUCH…How were you doing on your STC finals ? and how many times did you read the book  and do the exams?


I was pissed when STC told me to keep reading the book over and over..that is NOT A SYSTEM…

Apr 3, 2012 11:48 pm

stamct -- I read the book twice and went through it very slowly the second took me forever to get the info down and still I dont have it down 100%.  I also did the tests too in which some were repeated and the explanations were not all that great....I was doing ok on the tests, maybe 70s but I dont base it on that anymore.  I took the 7 and passed it with an 80 and was getting 50s-60s in the practice tests.  I just made sure I understood concepts for that one.

Did you get the online access with lectures and book.... or do you just have the TC test bank?

Good luck on Monday !! Let us know how it goes!

Apr 4, 2012 9:59 am

Ny1982..I also read the book twice …For the TC..I purchased the testing bank only. I noticed the difference immediately. I completed one set of the study tests and completed two sets of finals…cannot do any more…so we will see.


What type of questions did you see on IRR, NPV and DCF…STC really did not cover it that well and TC had definitions, just wondering who has it right..


I would suggest buying the whole system. Read the 125 page book, watch the video and do the test bank…If I don’t pass that is what I am going to do…I don’t like how STC gives you a ton of information and basically tells you to master it all…because they have no idea what is on the exam…Not a system….

Apr 4, 2012 10:22 am

From what I can remember, they had one question on NPV and asked how it was calculated.  For DCF, I believe they asked what are you solving for when you discount cash flows.  More basic stuff and doesn't get into details.  I don't remember an IRR question, however.

Apr 4, 2012 10:26 am

ok great...thanks...

Apr 4, 2012 11:17 am

I definitely had at at least one question on DCF and one on IRR but I can't remember the details. Only that I dropped an audible F bomb because the only useful information I knew about IRR was to "treat it like the effective rate" and that didn't answer the question.

ok will let you know...Thanks for the help


Hi Stamct - how did you make out on Monday - Did TC help you at all?

Apr 11, 2012 10:20 am

Hi Guys,

Passed with a 96%

Tc really helped..

I am at work right now...will talk more about it later

Thanks for the help everyone..

Apr 11, 2012 10:40 am

SERIOUS?!! wow...good for you! 

I just bought the test bank...hope that helps.  Did you go through every single test in the test bank? 

Can you also share any Qs that stood out?  Thanks!

Apr 11, 2012 5:10 pm

WOW!!! That's EXCELLENT!! Congrats, very, very well done

Apr 16, 2012 1:30 pm

Also, my brother just passed on Saturday with an 84%. Took about an hour and 15 minutes. He said he took a 10 minute break in the middle for a snack.


TC worked for us…made it simple
