I passed my Series 7 exam yesterday and it was a LOT harder than the SIE in my opinion. There were lot more math-based questions (especially on options) and a lot more time-consuming questions, some of which required multiple calculations.
I would say it would be a good idea to focus on knowing the material and not just take practice questions/exams absentmindedly.
There were some questions on my exam that gave away answers to or at least eliminated choices of other questions so make sure to look for similar questions when you’re reviewing your exam; I even got 2 questions that were literally the same question asked in slightly different ways with the same exact answer choices.
@brandonrith I did get 2 questions that asked about which yield(s) show up on a callable municipal bond trade confirmation and some of the choices (I don’t remember exactly which question had which choices) were: Current; both YTM & YTC; the higher of YTM & YTC; the lower of YTM & YTC. I did not see in the study materials any mention of yields having to be disclosed on a trade confirmation. Is this something that’s not testable at the moment?
