Hi, I have been using Acheivable and Pass Perfect to get ready for the SIE. I have found Pass Perfect more difficult and seeing a big difference in practice test scores. I am curious to hear anyone’s thoughts if they have used both before. Thanks!
Hi @Yellow_aqua_toucan, thanks for posting.
We get versions of this question pretty frequently; the short answer is that we try to make our practice exams similar to the real one, whereas other vendors tend to make theirs more difficult. To add another layer on top, FINRA exam difficulty is randomized, so it’s luck of the draw if you get an easier or harder one, but in all cases, the scores are scaled and normalized.
