Hey Everybody,

I currently have access to STC material for the Series 66, but failed on my first attempt. I've been reading about Training Consultants (TC) and I'm wonder if there is anybody out there who might be willing to share their access? Additionally, if I do end up paying TC for the material... should I buy the whole package, test with the books, or test only?

Feel free to PM me or reply to this thread. Thanks!

Hi SDR949 -

I'm a strong advocate of Training Consultants. Used Fire Solutions at ML and failed my first shot at the 7, took Training Consultants and blew it out. Took Fire for the 66 and failed my first shot there and was shown the door. Came her to Wells Fargo Advisors and just didn't jell with their program - Pass Perfect, used TC again and killed the 66, so I'll sing Tina's praises up and down. Everyone I knew at ML said don't bother with another program, just use TC and foolishly I didn't first time around. You may see some other threads about Training Consultants being sued by FINRA over the 66 but if you read the details it's clear that it's a lot of hoo-ha.

I suggest getting the whole program. Her practice tests are especially good in comparison to other programs in that with other programs you'll often only get the correct letter answer (i.e..."The Correct answer was B) which is not helpful. Or.... they'll provide you a synopsis of the incorrect answers - also not helpful. Tina's practice tests when printed out are themselves a great study tool because she provides A) the question followed by B) the correct answer and the WHY, the logic of the correct answer. Very helpful.

Good luck.

You may have already passed the 66, but I highly recommend Training Consultants. I failed the 66 twice using STC, then purchased the TC course and passed it with an 89.
So, if your worried, don't be it's well worth the money. As a matter of fact I still have 3 months on my subscription that I don't need now that I've passed. Let me know if you're interested.

What is your definition of hoo ha? It must be different from mine. Why don't you go read the docs... If test takers want to learn something about investment management, Pass Perfect is the way to go.

I failed the 65 twice using STC materials. I didn't want to wait so I went for the 66. On the FINRA website, I saw that the outline for taking the 66 was MUCH SHORTER than the outline for taking the 65. I don't know WHY I was told to take the 63/65.. BAD IDEA!

Before I made the mistake of going with STC again, I came to this blog to find out more information about the Series 66 exam and successes. I saw a lot of people using TC and decided to invest in that company. I RECOMMEND THIS INVESTMENT. I would recommend not to go with the company recommendations of STC because of the discount. I ended up getting an 86 on the exam with TC. Go for TC and forget the 63 and 65. Just take the 66.
