Don't use Kaplan!, I passed the 7 with a 94 and it took me 3 attempts to pass the 66, it's horrible" Kaplan is the material provided by our firm. OPTIONAL FORM 7. SEPTEMBER PRESCRIBED BY GSA. FPMR (41 CFR ) PROPERTY PASS. 1. DATE ISSUED. This pass is to be used.

If 90 percent of your mark comes from coursework and you do that poorly all year, you can't expect to save yourself at the last minute with a sudden good exam performance. Similarly, even if you've done brilliant coursework, if it counts for only 10 percent of your total mark, you still need a good performance in the exam. If you understand where your marks will come from, you can allocate your efforts accordingly.

Plan your revision More than 20 years after I last sat an exam of any kind, I still get a recurring nightmare about not having started my revision in time! Chore though it is, you can never really spend too long revising.

Teachers will tell you that it's generally easier to spend a small amount of time each day revising over a long period than to try to cram in all your revision the night before your exam. But different strategies work for different people. Some people find concentrated revision suits them best. Some prefer to revise one subject entirely before proceeding with another topic; others prefer to alternate revision between different subjects.

As you become proficient at exams, you should find a pattern that works for you. One good tip is to make revision a habit: treat it like a job and make yourself revise between certain set times of the day whether you feel like it or not. No-one ever feels like revising, but if you get into a routine where you always begin and end at the same time, you'll find it a whole lot easier.

Another good tip is to intersperse your revision with relaxing activities to stop your brain overloading. Go for walks, listen to music, hang out with friends, play sports—whatever you like— as long as you understand the distinction between break and distractions. Probably give reading books a miss until your revision is done, however.

Prioritize weak subjects Aim to revise everything but devote more time to things you don't understand or know less well. It sounds obvious, but it's surprisingly hard to do.

Because we like doing easy things—so our tendency, when we revise, is to concentrate on the things we already know. If you're not sure what your weaker subjects are, ask your teacher or look at the marks you've received on coursework through the year.

Prioritizing weak subjects also goes back to understanding the marking scheme. Let's suppose your examination involves you writing three essays.

Most likely they will carry equal marks. Even if you know two subjects off by heart and get perfect marks, if you can't write a third essay you risk losing up to a third of the marks. So weak subjects will have a disproportionate effect on your total mark, dragging your overall grade down much more. That's why you should give weak subjects most focus. Be honest with yourself What are you good at and what are you bad at? Maybe you think you're good at everything, but you'll still have weak points you need to focus on.

And if you think you're bad at everything, that's probably not true either. Ask your teachers to spend a little time with you helping you to understand where you need to focus your efforts. Most often they'll be happy to oblige. Practice makes perfect Photo: Set yourself "mock" questions under real time constraints.

Now, as teachers often tell you, exams are theoretically a way of testing your knowledge and your understanding and the object of studying is to get a good education, not to pass exams.

But exams count for a lot and a great deal of our education is geared specifically to helping us to pass them. Like it or not, you'll be sitting an awful lot of exams in your life. It makes sense to practice exams like you'd practice a sport or a musical instrument.

Most likely your teachers will get you to try out real exam questions or past exam papers.

If not, get hold of those questions and papers yourself and test yourself under real exam conditions. Can you really write a good essay on the causes of the first world war in three quarters of an hour?

Try it and see. Practicing exam questions and papers under time pressure is one of the best ways to improve your exam performance. Don't forget that teachers are creatures of habit as much as anyone else; exam papers are often set by the same people from one year to the next so particular topics will crop up over and over again.

Use memory aids It can be quite hard to remember all the things you need to know in an exam, so use memory aids if you need to. No, I don't mean write the answers on your arm!

When you had to remember the colors of the spectrum , you were probably taught to use a memory aid such as "richard of york gave battle in vain" [red orange yellow green blue indigo violet].

You can take this idea a stage further and memorize lists of things you need to remember or even entire plans for essays you might have to write. All you have to do is take the initial letter of each thing you want to remember and make up a sentence that helps you remember the letters. You can then remember in order half a dozen essays simply by memorizing six simple sentences!

I told my buddies, "why on earth didn't you just take the 65, since you already have the series 63??

Get it over, take it serious, and move along. Nobody cares the least bit what your score was, and if you scored REALLY high, keep it to yourself, because the washout rate is significantly higher for folks that scored in the good 90's, compared to the low 70's. This is a sales job, not an academic one I used Fire Solutions, my company's choice, and found them to be extremely useful.

I would recommend hitting the material again and giving yourself 2 weeks to study.

Practice tests were my saving grace, I found the material dry and daunting, but simply doing the questions over and over got me accquainted with how the test would appear.

As far as identifying your missteps, that will be hard to pin down, like you said. I don't know what state you are in but our state has a requirement for the testing centers to only allow X number of people to pass the test each month. As that number increases or decreases so does the level of difficulty of the test As you know, it's a very hard test.

I was right there with you back on July Staring at the screen-my heart about to pound through my chest-as my score was calculating. When I saw the score I seriously thought that my eyes must have just found a score for only a section of the test or something and that I just hadn't seen my actual score yet.

The 20 Best Resources to Pass the TOEIC Test

It honestly took me a few minutes before I accepted that as my final score No problem And, took ALL of the practice tests. And, averaged in the 80's on the practice tests. I thought I was set. Here's the thing, not only has the test introduced new questions and material and raised the passing score, but the general laws and regulations have changed as well.

My advice: Do everything they instruct you to do. It's an absolute pain to go through the material again, but most likely your job is riding on you passing this test this time around. Don't chance it. I scored an 83 on both exams. It will help. You'll do great. Of the two exams, I thought the 66 was a lot harder.

I just failed the 66 twice, after getting a different book as well.

The second time I actually thought the test was easier wording was simpler maybe? I feel your pain Kes So now I am debating on trying again, or getting the 63 and then the 65 later down the road. Any suggestions? Sorry to hear that KES The series 66 is proving to be extremely difficult.

I got a 90 on the series 7, studied hard for the 66 only to fail with scores of 71 and I just took and passed the 63 and am studying for the This info was given to me by word of mouth from an employee at the testing center. I do not or have ever thought about verifying it. I passed the first time so I didn't see a reason to be mislead but it is possible I was. I would agree with everybody else that the 66 is pretty tough. I passed on my first try and the only I advice I would give is to take the practice tests over and over and over I do have the 7 and will schedule for the 63 sometime later this week, probably taking it on monday.

My firm provided us with Test Prep material from PassPerfect. We didn't get any books other then a cliff notes version of the content in a little sprial bound booklet to refer to.

Once you read and completed the courses, I just kept taking practice after practice test. It was really helpul, I would highly reccommned PassPerfect materials, had them both for the 7 and This Series 66 must have changed dramatically, I took mine in with a 92 and Series 7 with a On the 66 - got a 73 and Studied for weeks, took different books and exams, had a two day live coaching plus a webinar.

Her last day is 30 days away. I am bummed out big time, she cried for days Study hard - didn't help. It seems that no 3rd party has good test preparation questions. Kaplan sucks. Kaplan is what I used for the first time, then got pass the 66 by Robert Walker, while still using the practice CD from Kaplan.

Pass the 7 helped me out, but the practice exams were cheesy and baby you. The test prep material is weird compared to the actual exam For some reason, the exam question wording is vague and simplistic compared to the 2 paragraphs of questions on the practice exams.

My supervisors are telling me that they studied for the 66 and 24 all in one week or something ridiculous. One has a law degree so I'm sure that helped, but were these exams totally different back then? What gives? I reeeaaallly wish the 66 was a 70 to pass, I wouldn't be stuck taking the 63 just to start working, even though I'm sure I'll have to take the 66 later on down the road. I have the Kaplan material for the 63, although outdated by 3 years, and I ordered Empire Stockbrokers 63 material which is up to date, so let's hope that does the trick.
