I just started studying for the Life,Accident and Health Insurance exams and was curious as to what is a good amount of prep time. I was thinking two weeks but would like to hear if that is too little or too much. Any tips would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Honestly? A few hours, tops.

Thanks for the response Bobby, would you happen to know what is a passing score on that exam. I can't find it listed in the book or on the web. Thanks again.

I don't remember. Probably 70. I think the exam may be different in each state.

I took a prep course, didn't study at all and still made a 81 in 30 minutes. Pretty simple test.

I took life and health after a 2 week study period while I was working.  That is the truth.  Forget the other jerkies.

I fell asleep reading the study book and decided to go in with only a couple hours.  Now I was fresh off the S7 material so that probably helped.
Sounds like vbrainy should change his username.

If your state requires classroom time, just attempt to stay awake.Nowhere near the Series exams

1 week of class and then I spent one work day studying.  As someone I know told me, if you cannot pass the insurance exam you shouldn't be allowed to have insurance.

It took you TWO weeks to study for the insurance quiz? Here's an idea...call yourself vdamagedbrainy.

Bobby just taped a note to a dog's back and passed easily.
Look at some of the insurance-only guys who can barely write their own names selling EIAs...does that answer your question?

What a bunch of dolts.  Not two full weeks you idiots.  I was working, prospecting, doing appointsments.  Like the 60 hour week.  Remember that time?  And I studied 15 minutes here and there.  That is real life.
So glad those days are behind me.
