If anyone is finished with their Perfect Pass test/data bank CD now that they've completed the 7, I would like to purchase it!


Let me know and I apologize if this post is against the rules of the board...Though I haven't see a WTB post before, I don't recall anything forbidding such a post.


Thanks,


Joe

Pass Perfect is a great fourth choice for sample Series 7 questions, especially if you like sample questions that look almost nothing like the real things.

Again, soon to be gone is talking out of his backside..



Pass perfect, in my opinion, is the best material.  Correct the questions are not like the questions on the real exam.  However, Pass Perfect will teach the concepts needed to pass the real 7.  if you understand the pass perfect material you will master the exam..


The key to these practice exams is not memorization, but understanding of the material.

I repeat, Pass Perfect is a great fourth choice--behind STC which is far and away the best at Series 7, followed by Kaplan which is acceptable if your firm forces you to use it, followed by CCH Wall Street which is excellent because it was developed by former STC writers, and finally Pass Perfect which is so far behind the others as to be practically worthless.


The textbook is notorious for spending pages off on a tangent, only to end with something like, "Everything from page 67 to 82 is irrelevant for the exam but is background on the industry."


On the other hand STC cuts to the chase and tells you what you need to know.  Ditto for Kaplan.


When you buy these courses what you're wanting to see are questions that look like the real test.  Of the major publishers Pass Perfect is the least effective at doing that. Virtually nothing that appears as a Pass Perfect sample question is even remotely similar to what is on the real test.


Period.

I agree that STC is excellent.

anybody have a used STC set?

Thanks for the replies-

I did purchase the STC Series 7 Exam book and sample exams, but the "topic" quizzes throughout the chapter are fairly easy.  I'm looking for "topic" quizzes that I can use after finishing a chapter...

Is it perfect pass that offers the topic quizzes? Pass perfect? or another...?

Thanks.

How is the new kaplan course?

Oct 6, 2006 4:44 pm

I used Pass Perfect and passed on the first try.  There may be better material available, but I did fine.  The 2 most recent guys in our office failed their first time.  I believe they used Kaplan.

What type of firm?  Major wire, regional wire, insurance, etc?

Oct 6, 2006 5:29 pm

I used Pass Perfect for my series 7 and 63 and Dearborn for my Life Insurance License.  Personally, I thought both companies were great.

Did you take your Series 7 while with a firm of questionable reputation.

No I didn't.  I maybe mistaken, but I think my old firm who sponsored me switched everything to Dearborn.

I was told by another broker the same thing .. the Pass Perfect questions are NOT like the real test questions.  Personally I think PP's test questions are probably more difficult.

Why would anybody want to buy study material that presents sample test questions that don't look like the real test questions when there are materials out there that have questions that do look like the real test questions?


Why would anybody want to buy study material that takes pages to explain something that another set of material can explain in a few sentences?


Why would anybody want to buy study material that is notorious for going off on tangents that the author freely admits are irrelevant to the exam when there are materials out there that cut to the chase and tell you what you need to know without wasting your time?


NASD exams are difficult enough without building in pitfalls such as sample questions that don't look anything like what will be encountered on the real exam.

STC materials worked great for me, passed the first time, also with a higher score on the real thing than on any practice exam on the cds, preps you really really well imo.

Any feedback on the new material that Merrill is using...Fire Solutions?

Oct 20, 2006 4:10 pm

I have a buddy who used the new kaplan book and cd. He passed with a mid 80.


Any other feedback on kaplan's new material...I am about to move forward studying with it...
