I'm taking the series 7 Monday morning and was informed by my trainer that the exam is asking ALOT more questions about CMO's and REITs. I suppose the 7 is keeping up with changes in the market so Muni's and options have given up a handful of question slots to be filled by the afore mentioned topics. For those with the 7 in their future I would recommend spending a little more time on those items.<?: prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />


For those familiar with the Jones 7&66 training system (SFS), my Series 7 SFS score averages leading up to Monday's exam are:


- Checkup Average (1-4): 89%

- Final Exam 1&2 Average: 83% (intentionally harder than 7)

- Practice Exam 1&2 Average: 90%

- The three prong average": 90.4% (Final 1 + Final 2 + checkup 3 + 12 ÷ 3)


Though I naturally feel nervous about the exam, I also feel confidant. All the studying comes down to Monday morning. Wish me luck.

You’ll be fine. Don’t stay up all night studying, go to sleep and eat a nice breakfast. It’s just an exam.

Jones prepares you well for the 7. Test was easy. 66 is even easier after the Training Consultant course.
