S66 Test on July 1 Monday 93% readiness

Hi, I am scheduled to take my 2nd attempt at the S66 in 2 days!!

my test readiness score is 93% …and previously it was at 86% when I took it previously and I made a 71…really hoping to pass this Monday.

any tips or suggestions to review over the weekend and this evening

I do plan on taking a final tomorrow and review on Sunday …possibly a final


I reviewed your account, and it looks like you’re doing well!

Since you’re on track, I don’t have much specific advice. I recommend spending your remaining time reviewing your most recent practice exam, and taking the Focus quizzes for your previous exams.

Make sure to sleep well the night before your exam and get everything ready in advance, so you can get to the test calm, focused, and relaxed. It makes a significant impact!

My firm will only give me one more chance to pass

Do you think I should reset the program and go over everything again

Or any advice ……

I did find this time around the questions and wording was super confusing….i feel like the first time around the test was way easier not as confusing….

I’m super bummed about not passing .

Any advice at all I will take

For context I also used a few series 7 guru and cap advantage series 7 Whisperer videos


Hi @Faith_Beahan, I’m so sorry to hear that. I think the best thing to do at this point is to conduct a retrospective and take a moment to reflect on your exam experience. You mentioned the wording was confusing this time - could you elaborate? Did you end up running out of time because the questions took too long to read? Did you feel like the concepts were presented in unfamiliar terms? Or were the questions filled with wording tricks like ‘except’? It feels like you know the material well at this point, so identifying the root cause of the challenges with the wording will be essential.

I understand that passing on your next attempt is critical, and I do think that resetting your course to study again from the beginning is a good idea. As you’re going through the content, take the mindset of learning it for the first time as a beginner - this will help ensure you get the most and pick up any missed nuance, as compared to skimming through it.
