So I failed my 66 a few days ago. Work gave me about 3 weeks to prepare with pass perfect book and online access.

I passed s7 with Kaplan and got an 80, s63 with pass perfect and got an 80.

I need the 66 because I’m moving onto a new role within the company. Thankfully they’re giving me another chance. I got a 73. I’m positive if I took it tomorrow I’d pass, but I’m not going to take any chances. I don’t wanna keep going through PP exams and read the same crap for another month. Tests ranged from 77-83 consistently. I’m debating on getting Solomon’s q bank or TC material. Thoughts?

It is unusual to average about 80 in Pass Perfect finals and then only score a 73 on the test. Did you complete the Pass Perfect program? if you did, I don’t think you will benefit from getting different materials.

Today I passed my 66 with Training Consultants.

This is your third recommendation to get Training Consultants.

I used a combo of STC and TC (just got their exam pack) and passed yesterday with an 81%. I still have 70 days left on my TC exam pack, PM me if you’d be interested in buying it.

Used only TC to study for the exam. If you put the time into studying and follow the program that is laid out for you, you’ll pass.

Also, disregard everyone that is saying commenters are paid off by TC.

Highly recommend TC.

Took the 66 again (2nd try) using TC. i read the material, did practice problems for each section, and took 3 exams. i didnt have time to watch all the video presentations because of work but im sure they would have definitely helped.

final result was an 83!

Why is everyone have such a hard on for TC stuff. I mean it’s like everyone is getting a commission. Been using Kaplan and questions are hard as hell. Am I screwed? Test in 2 weeks

So I used TC and was averaging 90 - 95% but I just failed the 66 with a 69%. How is everyone else getting so much more out of TC? The questions were a lot harder on the real test…TC questions were not as in depth as the real thing. Im so confused what to do to make sure I pass the next time.

Is training consultant video based or do you need to do the majority of learning through the reading material?

It is video and reading materials with section tests and final exams.

@FAjourney What did you end up doing? Going back through the TC materials or using another quiz bank

Getting 90s on practice finals (any firm’s practice finals) and then failing the exam (any exam), suggests one thing to me: the questions were too easy compared to the actual test. This is basically what FA journey said
