Is passing the Series 7 Hard?

The first and last 25 questions are the easiest, so don't panic if it suddenly gets more difficult. The Series 7 exam is three-hours and 45 minutes. That's down from six hours, but it's a beast. There's a reason you need to immerse yourself into practice exams rather than simply bite-sized study chunks.
