I think I'm really going to need it! I have taken 8 practice finals w/ Pass Perfect and I keep hitting in the high 60's up to the low 70's.  I'm starting to feel the nervousness kick in and a little bit of doubt.


What should I do in the mean time? Pound away at practice finals, re-read materials, both? I am doing pretty well on the suitability questions but stumbeling on options, and some of debt questions.  It just seems like there is a lot to remember!


Any advice is good advice.  I had the same issues when it came to the series 6/63 a few years ago but i passed both on the first attempt even though STC's finals just reshuffled the same questions, this is definitely not the case with pass perfect!

If you have only read the manual once, you should probably re-read some sections. Also, take finals until your last one is your highest. Pass Perfect's finals might be more difficult than the actual exam. Low 70s could be enough. Good luck on the exam.

Thanks for the support! The passperfect finals are pretty tough but this is a good thing I suppose. My biggest worry with options is memorizing what makes up the various types, straddles and the spreads and whether I'm adding or subtracting the combined premiums. I know this will only account for 25 questions on the total exam but I'm still kind of nervous here.

A belated 'good luck.' How'd you score?

Thanks for all of the well wishes but I missed it w/ a 71% it's frustrating because that is basically 2 questions. The material appeared to be presented in a much different fashion than it has been presented w/ my pass perfect materials. None the less I take it again at the end of April so I'm thinking the second time should be the charm.
