A place for rookies and wannabes to have their questions answered.

May 21, 2018 12:05 pm

I have two associates in my team both of which have taken the 66 three times and have yet to pass it. One is a 30 year veteran of the industry and the other a college educated, 1 1/2 year vet. Both have studied over a hundred hours and they can't pass that test!!

What is the story with that exam! Are we trying to keep people out of the industry. I am a 37 year vet and I find this very frustrating. What is the solution to get this done ie. vendor, crams, tutoring. They will do what it takes but the scores continue to come back about the same.

Does anybody have advice? Help is appreciated.

I would love to see what the pass rate is for the 66 and the 65. NASAA hold that close to their chest it would seem.

Am a Financial Advsior with Series 6 and 63 with a MBA in Finance. I have failed Series 65 3 thrice and I followed Kaplan study plan to the core.



Sorry I am in the same boat

Siritalks, at this point, you should consider working with a tutor. Check out www.series65examtutor.com

Training Consultants & a LOT more than 100 hours. You really gotta know your stuff.

Score 80s on simulated exams through Kaplan consistently and do Training Consultant's Program.
