When people say that they've taken the exam, they mean that they answered the questions and got a grade. Not that they brought it home with them.

No reason to be an ass. I know for a fact you can get old exams from Kaplan and other test prep places for study purposes. I was just curious where else you can get them. But if trying to be-little other people makes you feel better about yourself, then hell go for it! Doesn't make you any smarter though.

THen why don't you get some from Kaplan? Why do you have to waste out time with this crap?

I'm the one who was smart enough to pass the S7, young lady.

Belittle is one word, not two hyphenated words, sweetheart.

If you think this is a ploy to cheat, then you are an idiot. You must know nothing about test taking procedures. Do you think they give everyone the same test every year? No...After the year is over, they file the tests for students to take practice tests. I am simply asking if anyone knows where to get old (07,06 ) exams, so i can take practice tests. You didn't just magically pass the S7. You took practice tests whether you bought them in a book, used S7 for dummies, or got materials from your firm and guess where they got that material from, OH MY...OLD TESTS. But since you used material based off of old tests, i guess that makes your S7 grade mean nothing right?... By the way, Im a man, not a sweetheart. Oh, and it says something that i haven't see you on any well respected posts here, so i'll just ignore both of you.

I appreciate it ice. I have obviously the study materials from Jones, but i also purchased Series 7 for Dummies (It's actually wonderful at explaining the basics) and it comes with a practice exam, but i was wondering if there were any besides Kaplan. The study materials i have don't come with many practice questions. They feel a bit dumbed down, compared to others i have seen online and such. Thank you for taking my post seriously Ice...

STOP WORRYING seriously if you cant simply study the Jones material for the time alotted and pass easily you probably will have some serious issues answering intelligible questions from prospects regarding their retirement preparation and life savings, not trying to be a jerk, but trust me if you do the work and spend the time reccomended you will be fine. Two months from now you will be worrying more about your REAL challenge in this biz, making quality contacts, and qualifying prospects. Good luck, study hard every day, pay close attention to options and bonds, particularly muni's and you'll be just fine. Relax, focus, and you'll pass with flying colors.

What system does Jones use?  My company uses Firesolutions and I know you can order extra practice tests.  I have no idea where you get old tests.  I also used STC and Dearborn practice tests.  I'd see if anyone else in your region has access to those discs.

Aug 24, 2008 6:20 pm

I am not worrying..DC...I am just looking for some more tests...for extra practice...

Aug 24, 2008 8:19 pm

I'm new to this myself, 3574, but if you can't learn to work with a little more grace your going to be Gone With the Wind.

WOW waaaaaaaaaaaay to much is going into this.

The tet is hard yes, but not that hard to have all this commotion going on. I know guys with just a GED who at 18 years old simply took the stc enough times (about 7) which I am certain most the answers were memorized go and score mid 70s on the 7. If you fail, it will be because you are nervous, not because you didnt know the your stuff.

I agree WAAAAAAAAAAAY to much into this...I simply asked for where to get a few extra practice tests....People like to start drama....

as I understand it FINRA has some thousands of test questions and each test they give piucks a random NNN questions from this bank -- so the questions you are given will not necessarily be the exact same ones your buddy gets.

 
I had an interactive CD that allowed you to answer hundreds of questions organized by topics whcih then provided the right answer and the reasons. This was very valuable,especially on options math.

Dude,

Check Ebay
A lot o' sheeit iz fo' sale dere

slap mah fro!

Aug 27, 2008 4:04 pm

Wind,  just stick to the EDJ tests and you will be more than prepared.  Trust me.  No need to waste any money on extra questions.

Aug 27, 2008 4:06 pm

So just study the Jones material hardcore?  I was contemplating getting the Kaplan cd but have been putting it off due to the cost of it.

Aug 27, 2008 4:32 pm

Don't buy anything.  The Jones material will more than prepare you for the 7.  If you can't pass it with the Jones study process, you ain't ever gonna pass it.

Well guys. I'd have to disagree with you. I purchased a supplemental book that explains the information a lot better than the Jones material. I was able to understand the Jones material quicker by reading this book first. Saying that because i do not ONLY USE JONES MATERIAL i will never pass is a little un true. It's good stuff, but it doesn't always explain it in the best way.... I don't feel like anything is a waste of money, that helps me understand the material especially when i mention the book to my trainer and after se purchased it, she recommends it to my current classmates...as well as changes how she teaches..based off a few concepts in the book...There are better materials...I am just looking for some good supplementals.
