The books are about 1,000 pages long.  Most of the guys on this board put in close to three hours give or take an hour or two.


Remember the adage, "If you score more than 70% you studied too hard" so what you should do is try to finish the real test as quickly as possible. They give extra points if you can complete it as a rate that suggests that you could not have had time to read the questions.


You're given three hours, but if you take more than fifteen minutes you're not going to get the extra points, time is actually very critical.


Out of 250 questions you're going to need to get 175 correct.  Since scoring more than 70 is a waste of time it is suggested that you simply stop once you have answered 175 questions because that maximizes your time spent versus score achieved ratio.


Finally as you're studying remember that the Series 7 exam has nothing to do with being a broker.  Well, except for that licensing part.

Three hours?  Are you sure?  I don't think so!


I studied STC material for 1 1/2 months and then passed with a score of 80%.

Dude normally you're mighty sharp but in this case I think you missed the sarcasm dripping from BEF's post!

I've been a little thick lately.

It was a funny post, but I could've sworn that he would've said 3 DAYS - to try to make it more believable.

I suppose I've been working too hard.

It is a funny post!
