Passing the Series 7 Exam

By Nick Hunter

How to pass the Series 7 exam? A question we get very often as trainers and study material developers. The Series 7 is not an easy exam but it is very pass-able if you use the right material and use correct study techniques. A huge key to passing the series 7 is working with enough practice questions and tough test questions. Most people fail the test because they did not really challenge themselves in working with hard enough exam questions when preparing.

People fail the Series 7 exam many times because they are not practicing with enough difficult questions. Passing the Series 7 needs you being completely confident

The real series 7 is 250 questions. Is using a study program with 500 practice questions enough? 1000 questions? In my opinion - NO. You want 5 or 10 times that. The more scenarios the better.

As you study for the Series 7, Series 6 or almost any securities licensing test - it is crucial to work with MORE than enough exams. Memorizing repetitive test questions may give you good final exam practice scores, but it will not give you the readiness to pass the Series 7. It will only provide a false sense of security.

Working Series 7 questions from your computer will prepare you well as long as the amount of questions is there and the degree of difficulty is strong. The actual exam is given on computer so drilling yourself with computer based training questions is a great way to prepare.

American Investment Training is known for having the largest Software and Online databank of questions - over 7000 exam questions and 50 question subject tests.

Learning the concepts of the questions you get wrong while studying can be helped by reading the correct answer explanations. Being a trainer myself, I even want students to read the full correct answer even if they guess it right.

A great study tip and technique is to write out the answer explanations on exam questions you got wrong. This reinforces the concept and will limit you from getting that question wrong again or even a similar question.
