Failed Series 3

So, I failed the Series 3 today. Supposedly, this was supposed to be one of the easier, if not easiest FINRA exam.

To provide context, I passed the 7, 63, 57, and 4 all on the first try.

I was not able to complete the 3 due to spending a lot of time on those long math problems.

I ended up getting a 77 on the market knowledge and a 68 on the regulations.

Does anyone have any tips or suggestions, please?

I took the Knopman course, but I am thinking of taking STC if I take the test again.

Agree. I have a 7, 63, 3, 4, 24, & 55 .... the 3 was the easiest by 10 miles.

Not trying to rub it in .. but I used STC on all of my exams, and have always felt that they strongly prepared me for 95% of the material I saw on the actual exams.

Thanks, MX.

I studied the least for the 3 than I did on my other exams.
