Hi all, I cannot decide between STC or TS for additional material for the 66.  I hate Fire solutions and I am not scoring well on their finals.  I don't know if their tests are close to anything like the 66 or if investopedia is just that easy but there is a huge  discrepincy between what I am scoring on the two and I do not feel comfortable.  I will be sitting for the test on the 14th of June so I do have a little time.  Any thoughts?  Thanks.

I was in the same position as you. I found that the Fire Solutions material was terrible for the 66. I used a bit of the STC material, but predominantly the Kaplan manual for the 66.

For the 7- The firesolutions is all you should need to score in the 80s or above

For the 66-I used the Firesolutions exams and predominantly the Kaplan training material to study. I studied for about 20 hours total and made out with an 85 on the actual exam. I actually still have the STC and Kaplan training manuals if you are looking to buy one. I have no idea what they go for used, but I'm sure we can probably work something out.

I had STC and TC.  TC is much better.  If you want a definite pass, get TC.  If you want to work a lot harder and know way too much information, and possibly not pass becuase you are on information overload- get STC.

I went with TC as a supplement after failing with a 74% with Fire Solutions. Got an 83% second time around and saw several very similar questions to the TC bank on the actual test.

Thanks for the info guys, sorry to say that I wasn’t successful today. My question is should I just get the qbank from TC or the whole enchilada?
