Swiss,


What areras are strong in and what areas are you week in?  I have never used the STC tests so can't comment on that.  I assume that you will need to score higher on those tests to pass the 7.

Uh,yes...you are doing something wrong.  My first clue was "I haven't looked at the study material".  While you should spend the most time (probably 70%) on practice test questions, I would not advocate starting there.  Read the material.  When you complete each section, take a test on that section.  Once you score at least 80% on that section, move on to the next section. Once you're through the entire book, do nothing but take practice tests covering all of the material, only referring back to the book for sections that you are consistently below 70%.


I Don't know about STC, but I've used Dearborn and the practice test scores were almost exactly the same as I scored in the real thing.  Good luck.

Swiss,


Sorry, when I left my old firm, I left the series 7 materials behind since they had purchased them.  Aside from that, they would have been several years old and probably seriously outdated.  I'm going to list my series 24 materials on eBay and perhaps you can find series 7 materials there also...

Hey man.. I went to amazon and picked up the dearborn with disk for 110 bucks. The test material with disk is excellent.
