Hi all,

Failed the Series 65 exam twice so far using STC Interactive materials provided by my firm.  So if I fail it again I have to wait 6 months... really trying not to fail again, I got a 65% the last time I took it, in late Feb.

I've been studying the STC materials some more but our subscription just ran out; considering buying the Kaplan "Basic Self-Study Solution" ie the QBank and the Manual, plus a one-time practice exam ($160).

Does anyone have experience with that, or have any other ideas? I've read most all of the posts on here about it and it seems like people like it in general, but just wanted to make sure.  Seems like "pass the 65" has had some mixed reviews on here.

Thanks a lot!

Kaplan is good.  Plenty of choice of media to study from.
