A word of warning about the series 7 refresher requirement, or whatever the hell you call it. I just failed it ! Everybody said how easy it is, that you can't study for it, etc. etc. .... BULL dust ! Now, I'm not the smartest person, nor am I the dumbest. I've passed the 63 as well as the 7 first time, and now I just failed the one that's supposed to be the easiest. Also just heard of someone else who failed ... so this is just intended to be a heads' up. I've aleady dug out the books to prepare to take it again ASAP... if nothing else, I feel that by going through some of that stuff again it will get my mind working considering it's been over 2 years since I took the 7. To give you an idea, there are 7 categories with 210 mins. to get through it, ... if you don't get enough answers it keeps revolving you back ad nauseum through that one category ... I got to the second last category with over an hour left, and got bogged down (don't remember anything about custodial accounts and the like) Never did get to the last one. I would've preferred to have had the option of moving on to the last one and then go back to work on the one that was giving me trouble 'cos of seeing the time disappearing. There was a thread about this a while back, .... I did a search but can't find it, if anyone knows where it is I'd like to know ... I dunno ... maybe I am just dumb ! I sure feel it right now ... Tia, XGG BTW, didn't know what thread to put this in !
