All good advice for Series 65 candidates.

could I connect with Sheri or equivalent to get some advice on whether series 65 would be appropriate for my background. I have a degree in business administration, economics and political science.
Thanks Sheri! I certainly enjoy working with you. At least you know I’m at home doing my homework and studying…...... kid free weekend! I’ll let you know when I’m ready.
Great read!! I know this article was posted in 2014, but I’m studying for my series 65 and I haven’t had success in passing the test. I’ve used Testeachers and have scored 90-100% on all 19 (1,477 questions) of their tests. I felt very confident when I started my test,but I was blindsided and thought they accidentally keyed in the wrong test. I failed the test. In your article you mentioned Robert Walker’s “Pass the 65” program, does his course have a high success rate? I’ve thought about Kaplan, until I read this article. Please advise. Thanks
I’m concerned now about my study course from testeachers.com. Joseph, what happened?
Sheri, should I get a refund and use a different system?
