Congrats on passing. i know what you meant about hating studying for a specific test. I remember in college doing all nighters and then walking on the way home from the exam thinking, "Well, whatever happened it's over now."

I remember back in 83 I was going to school to get my FAA license to work on planes and the federal tests are 3 parts..Written,oral and practical.
Well due to the freedom of information act they are required to publish the test questions and answers.So for a week before we took the written tests we sat there 6 hours a day and pretty much memorized the written questions and answers.

The written part was a joke.It was the 3 hours of oral testing that separated the men from the boys..

I have seen a bunch of films (mainly on pornhub) that seem to indicate being a real estate agent can be a lot of fun...

The guy at the end of my street was my first buddy to get a Maserati (before they were everywhere). He's a real estate agent.

The last standardized test I took was the Series 24. That said I get tested every day. I am in the middle of raising capital for my company and I get shelled with questions about every aspect of the business and if I don't have the answers, I risk losing the potential investor. Life is a series of tests, most don't involve paper and pen (I know most of these tests are digital, these days).

Congrats!

I had all those securities licenses. The firm I worked for made me an AVP. My whole purpose was to become the Principal. I had my Series 7 already. I took the Series 24, 8 options and 54 municipal bonds in less than two months. These guys were setting up a Pump and Dump Shop but it didn't get off the ground. I would have not participated if it had. When I went to work for Schwab, I bet I had more licenses than anybody.

I am an excellent performer with housing applicable knowledge, but was never a very good student. My "talent" has always been, learning something inside an out from a practical application perspective, and being able to develop a presentation on the fly, or produce a product/outcome. I have done a lot of various standardized tests earlier in my adult life for various careers i dabbled in. This is the first one where i had to truly study for, because even know i've been around this sort of thing most of my life, the regulatory and law information was very detailed.

I'm just glad to not have to mess with another big test for 2 years, unless i get some certifications with going concerns and commercial stuff.

I created this thing from the ground up. So, I should have all the answers. However, everyone comes at things from slightly different angles. So, you can get a question from left field that you might not have already considered. You have to be fluent.

I took the 7 and the 24 two weeks apart. I needed them fast because I was a co-founder of the firm we were starting and you have to have the 24 to be an owner of an NASD licensed firm. They are both 3-hour tests and while there is a little overlap, the material that they cover is quite different. That said, all you really needed to do was read the study guide and do tons of practice tests.
