I am looking for an online training for series 7. I have narrowed it down between Greico Financial and Training Consultants.
Does anybody have any suggestions>

I am currently using training consultants which my firm had me sign up for. I like the course, the instructor takes the time to explain the underlying concepts so you are not doing memorization only. Thy study guide schedule and practice exams are very helpful. The course comes with a manual that follows the online course and tells you how many questions per section with be on the test which I find extremely helpful. Has your firm recommended a course for you to take? Based on the book guidelines options and muni's are heavily covered. I take my exam at the end of the month.

Wish I would have checked this site out prior to taking my 7. I started off with the STC book & went at it every night for about 2 weeks. Then incorporated the practice exams & started taking those with scores mostly in the 60-70's. Just kept on it with reading & testing for another 2 weeks. Scores went up but not any in the 80's. Googled & found out about Kaplan. Fast forward and I am taking a crash course at their campus. I received the book but figured I didn't need the Q-bank due to already having STC practice tests. Make it through the week & feeling good, continue on studying & testing for 1 week. Had 2 days before the exam & went all out practice testing, writing out my option cheat sheets & going over & over questions. Got to my seat & next thing I know I am floored by how many questions on (ETN, variable annuities, ETF, & some other topics that I didn't seem or realize we're going to be so heavily tested). So now I don't know where to start regarding getting back at it?
Any ideas or input would be great!
I have all this info with me & don't know which way to go?
Thanks

If it is on FINRA's series 7 content outline, you need to know it. FINRA does not release the weight per investment topic, only per job function. Just because someone had a lot of ETF questions does not mean that another person will have a similar number of questions on this topic
