Anyone out there know if the EDJ Finals and Practice tests are tougher than the 7. I’ve heard this and was looking for further confirmation.

It’s been a pretty good time since I started at Jones, Sonny, but the prep material was excellent and I’d credit the tests about the same level of difficulty as the actual Series 7.  I was well prepared when I sat down at the testing center.

Five years seems to be about right.  I stayed a little too long, looked at through the miracle of hindsight.

Best of luck next Monday, and let us know how you make out!

Keep at it over the weekend.  Don't let up you are too close.  When you get a question wrong, write out the correct answer.  Writing enhances and reinforces learning.

Eat normal food (like no Mexican or Chinese) the night before and get a good night's sleep.  Say your prayers too!  Eat a good breakfast and you may want to pack a lunch (I did).

If you are hitting a bad spot in the test, if you have time, take a break.  Drink some water, run up and down a stair case.  Go back in and you will be amazed at how questions you were dumbfounded by are easier.

Take some hard candies like Life Savers with you.  Tell the test takers you have them and leave them on the table.  Pop them and they will give you a boost too.

Good luck.  Let us know how you did.

Well, first of all don't take the Lord's name in vain, that won't get you anywhere.  Sorry, but it is true.

Secondly, mental exhaustion is DEFINITELY a factor you have to master for this test.

If you want, you can PM me with your fax number.  I can send you some hard copy test to take and the answer key.

Hey I checked back in at 5:00 and I had no response from you.  Gotta run.  Good luck Monday.

Great going, Sonny!

Welcome aboard!

Good for you Sonny, a very good score.

NOW pick up those 66 books and get at it.

Your firm probaby has you taking the 63 because you won't be talking about Investment Advisor products. If you were the 66 would take care of you. The NASD discourages "parking licenses."

Where's Put Trader to tell Sonny what a loser he is for only scoring an 80?  The flipside of that, of course is, "What do they call the guy who graduated dead last in his medical school class?"

Answer: Doctor!

Not bad for a left-wing kook!
