I'm taking the S7 this coming Friday, and I've been studying using the STC Interactive program.
In the simulated exams I've been scoring fairly well lately. High 80s - Low 90's, but my problem is that I'm nervous as hell.
Just Breathe........ I was getting around the same results on my Series 7 practice Tests from Fire Solutions and I passed with an 85. My biggest piece of advice is to be confident in what you know. If you can handle options and municipal bonds, then you have a leg up on about half the test. For most people, a lot is riding on the results but if just take your time, and keep a tally of questions that truly stumped you, you should do fine. If you are nervous and jittery, avoid caffeine that morning. Eat something of substance (muffin, etc) and go in saying, "I'm going to own this b*tch." Good luck.
thanks BR - I sure need the advice. I'm just probably over reacting, but nervous none the less.
I'll keep you posted.
Thanks again for the good advice - did eat a muffin, no coffee, went to bed early (but couldn't close my eyes til really late). Guess I forgot to breathe... specially when clicking to get my score.... 87%
Going to eat something now and celebrate!
