Congrats wind!  How'd ya score? 

 
BTW - Take the rest of the week off and get hammered.  Come Monday morning, throw the Series 7 out the window, and start the Series 66 materials.  Don't take it lightly.  There is no overlap with the Series 7.  You could very well fail if you blow it off.  In fact, even though it's shorter than the 7, it's probably harder.  The material is VERY dry.  After you've hit the books for a few weeks, and passed the S66, forget everything for a 3 day weekend, and get hammered again. 

Then come THAT Monday, get ready for the REAL HARD part to begin. 
 
A buddy of mine in the business called me while I was studying for the S7 and told me that in two years, I'd look back at my stressing over the S7 as a complete joke compared to the level of stress that I would soon be dealing with.
 
He was dead on.

Ha...I can imagine it's alot harder come the next few months..But to be honest with you i am excited about the time i am coming into the business....there are going to be alot of people looking for new advisors and scared...Time to be the hero.......I had some family issues so i got behind in my studying and I didn't score as great as i liked but i passed. I was told in the office at Prometrics that she has never seen a 25 year old pass the test (I am 25). She said they never do, that it is usually people in their mid to late 30's with some experience in the business that pass. So i felt pretty good about that....I have heard alot about the 66. I have heard that it is easier, but not to take it lightly. If you do, you will fail....and that it is alot of remembering things, rather than applying like the 7

Congratulations on passing.  From what I hear, passing the test is the easiest part of the gig.
