Hello all, I failed the series 7 before by making the mistake of reading the material and not focusing on the practice exams. I am here now about to take the exam again a month later and I'm still getting in the low 70's on the practice exams. I've been studying for about 8-10 hours for the past couple days mostly just with the practice exams, before that I got 15 hour video lectures that I had watched... Nothing seems to be sticking, my grades on the practice exams aren't improving and I take the exam in 2 days at 8am, so I really only have 1 day left to study. Should I; 

1. Decide that maybe this isn't for me

2. Try to reschedule and pay the full 305

3. Study all day tomorrow and try the exam

4. Not study all day tomorrow and try the exam although I'm not doing that well on the practice exams?

im so afraid I'm going to fail again, it almost seems inevitable, I just don't know what to do at this point. 

Thank you!

It is not a mistake to have read the materials. I do not think low 70s is good enough, especially when you have gone through the materials for the second time. If there is no downside to rescheduling except for the fee, it should not be a difficult decision.
