Hi bluesmap,

I took my series 7 on November 22 (95%), two weeks after the material changed.  I used both firesolutions and STC, and both were reasonably good.  I only used STC for the practice finals, and used firesolutions for the content plus the test questions.  I think I would recommend firesolutions over STC, especially if you want to use recorded tutorials, as the trainer over there is quite good.  

The only drawback of firesolutions is that you don't have an option to "score as you go" on their questions, you have to wait until the end of the test and go back over all of them at once.  STC allows you to see the correct answer immediately after answering, which I thought was akin to using flashcards and was very good.

Good luck!

Fire Solutions is okay for the Series 7, but for the Series 66, you must use Training Consultants.  TC is better for the Series 7 too, in my opinion.  I have used both.

I have STC and I think it pretty good.  I think the value in STC's material is in the questions rather than the notes.  They give you lots of practice exams and the ones towards the end are very difficult, probably much more difficult than the actual exam.   I have heard very mixed opinions about Fire Solutions.
