Why do you want to take the test in three weeks?  Do you turn into a pumpkin if you don't?

yes i get a rolex daytona if i pass it in 3 weeks, lol.. no im kidding. I wanna knock it out in 3 week's that's my own goal.

That seems like an unrealistic goal.  Sorry, but that is my true feelings.


I studied the books and cd for 5 weeks.  We use Pass Perfect.  Then I took the Dearborn class for 1 week (the Dearborn stuff is too easy).  I passed with a 75.


I think that most people you talk to would tell you that 3 weeks is not enought time.  Good luck.

Two very legitimte questions.


1.  If you had PassPerfect books why did you take a  Dearborn Class?


2.  Why, after all that studying, did you score so low?

Hell, I studied for three freaking months.  I got an 86 but it was almost full time studying for all that time.   


If you can pass it in three weeks, maybe you should get a Phd so we can all call you Doctor Investment Rep.  Let us know how it goes.  Good luck.

Serious question.


Is it possible to pass Series 7 by not studying, but being lucky in guessing the answers?

Yes.

It isn't a yes or no question.  It is a question of probability.  Since you only have a 1:4 chance of getting a correct answer on a 4 choice multiple choice test, the odds are very slim, if you are truly guessing.

well my first practice exam after reading it through was a 70.



Now that I am going back through it and taking some notes on the stuff i struggled with.


It is a lot of material but it is not that hard to comprehend the basic ideas.


Can it be done - I say yes - 3 weeks - 7 days a week about 6-8 hours a day.

If you place a thousand monkeys in front of typewriters, and give them enough time and paper, one of them will eventually type the entire works of William Shakespeare free of any errors......

Yes.. I guess you already asked yourself..

Anything is possible, but you have a challenge.


The worse that can happen is you fail and retake in 30 days.. Ohh yeah and lose a couple of bucks.


Make it happen while others talk.

"Make it happen while others talk."


I like that, Exec.

My experience:


I used PassPerfect for three weeks, then took the Dearborn class (week long class, ending on last Friday), and passed the exam with an 80% yesterday.  I was studying seven days a week, at least five hours a day. 


It was intense; if you have anything you would rather do (spend time with family, enjoy your summer, go to church) it is not a path I would recommend. 


I did it because I am being paid to be in a training program that requires successful completion of the series 7 in four weeks; series 66 in three.
