I passed today with a 72%.  In my defense I only had just over two weeks to prepare but man it was tough.  
Now I'm a "Series 7 Licensed broker. Now you're a millionaire, it's that f*cking simple."  
If only it were that easy.

Nice job! 2 weeks huh? Must've been busting your @ss!!! I just got hired by Edward Jones and start studying for the 7 in a couple weeks. They give me two months to prepare though.

 
Congrats and good luck to you!

The 7 is not hard, two weeks or not.  Try the 3.  Take a weekend to study for it.  Let me know what you think a hard test is.

Nicely done. You took a perfectly innocent celebratory exclaimation about someone else's accomplishments and turned it into a pissing contest.

Jan 16, 2009 7:25 pm

It is what it is.  Simply stated the 7 is not that hard.

Jan 16, 2009 7:27 pm

Every exam is easy... if you STUDY.

 
Get over yourself Sam.
 
Good job Glenngarry!

I don't know about the 3 but I've heard many people say the 7 is difficult so I know I'm not a lone.  It may be the amount of the material versus the difficulty level, but trying to absorb it all in two weeks was a little tough for me.  Perhaps Sam is just a stud.  Kudos.

If you think the 7 is hard, I cant wait to hear how hard you think it is to build a book.
Good luck.

Lol! This sentence alone has been keeping awake at nights and giving me ulcers. How does the saying go? "Life is a bitch and then you marry one." I guess I'll consider the 7 the day I get "married" to my new career.

I know some very dumb people that have passed it. You either ace it, barely pass, or bomb it.

The only thing easier is the series six and the insurance exam.  Nonetheless, my guess is that your limited study time made it seem hard.  Now, get ready to find out what "hard" is...

 
Oh, and yes, Sam is a stud.  I feel like a dumbass in his presence.

Perfect utility in study/passing, one point over the pass mark. Any more than that is a waste of time. Congrats. I found the 66 to be a bit challenging. Safe bet that's next on your list.

Every interview I've been to they've always asked what I scored.

Jan 17, 2009 2:40 pm

Congratulations, GlenGarry.  Ignore the sourpusses that come here to simply dump on other people because it makes them feel superior or better about their own miserable lives.

Congrats on passin the 7!!!

You've been interviewing with some stupid managers.  I'd hate to be working where you finally decided to work - since they keep asking you a stupid question.
 
I've NEVER been asked what I "scored" on my exams!
 
What did your manager "score"?
 
What did the money manager's score on the 7?
 
Who the @#$% cares???
 
Of course, the only interview that really matters is from the client and they have never asked me what I "scored".

I can't speak about series 7 scores, but as a manager, I care more about your effectiveness at work and how a person utilizes the information they learned - productively. I know a high score may be a sign of a hard worker or one with a photographic memory; then again some people score high on a test and can't do a thing with it.

Merrill and Morgan, hell even the guy at EDJ was curious. If anything, they were probably asking for their own curiosity.
