That is all, just felt like saying it.    On to the Series 7.  (yes I know that’s a bit backwards but there were scheduling conflicts with a class I’m taking for the 7)
Happy Holidays to all!

7 will be a breeze for you after the 66.

Really? I’ve heard a few people say that but I’ve heard more say the 7 is much harder.  It’s certainly much longer.

Yea… the series 7 is way harder.  I have to take the s66 soon and since I have my s7 already, the study material feels like review.  I’ve already made 80% and higher on the exams.  It may just be a preference thing though.

I found the 66 harder since it’s all material you either know or don’t, while most of the material on the 7 can be “worked out.” All the options stuff, for example. If you know the concept, you’ve got 40-50 questions out of the way.

Congrats! The world becomes a bit bigger when you get those tests out of the way. I agree with xbanker, know your options and you should be in great shape!

The real difference IMHO is that the 66 is a bit more tricky…the answers aren’t straightforward, unlike the 7 where there is a lot more math based (options) and the answers are definative. 

  Overall, I think the 66 is a bit tougher, although the 7 has more pressure since firms (Jones at least), will let you retake the 66 if you fail...but if you fail the 7 you are out!   Congrats...the 7 will be  cinch!

Congrats! non of the test are easy. Don’t blow any of them off you don’t want to be the person who failed. Plus the retake exam takes time. Life and Health is just the same don’t blow it off. I totally put life and health off until the night before I was up until 430 in the morning. Still passed, felt lucky. Cheers
