I passed with a 79! The thought of failing and then having to study all over again was very motivating! I will say this -- I have used STC materials for 6 exams (Series 6, 7, 63, 65, 24, and MA State Insurance) and I have passed on the first attempt every time. As I look back, one of the main reasons for my success are those practice exams. I have always felt that the STC practice exams are more challenging than the actual exams themselves. So, preparing that way is MOST beneficial. I will also say that for my recent exams (the 7 and the 24), the review course was a HUGE benefit. The content for those exams is a lot greater, and having it organized the way the STC does in the review courses was a major plus. So, thank you.
