FX is a train-wreck. Wow, they need to hire a grammar teacher and figure out the correct answers to their own questions. It seemed like every other questions had the wrong answer. How do you learn if you're getting bad info from the course that is teaching you?

I doubt that this is true. Although I write and edit materials for another national prelicensing and exam prep provider, I happen to know one of the senior editors at Exam FX personally, and I think she would disagree with you, too.



All educational materials can be expected to have a few minor errors, but materials are reviewed by state insurance department personnel before they go into circulation to make sure they meet content guidelines. As long as the required content is present, any minor grammatical errors should not alter a student's exam outcome.



Here in CA, for example, on the Life-Only Agent exam (75 questions, 60% passing score . . . yes, only 60% (45 correct answers) needed to pass) regardless of the educational provider, the first-time test takers passing rate is barely over 60%. I think this says more about the wannabe agents than it does about the exam. Yes, there are a few obscure questions on the exam, but, please! How hard can it be to get a 60% or better score? I took the 150-question Life & Health exam a few months ago just to see what the questions looked like, and scored a 96%.

ExamFx seems to work for passing the state test in MS, but that's because the passing score is only a 65.

Other than that, ExamFx is an awful service. They have ZERO communication with their clients and then wonder why people get angry when they aren't contacted when there are problems with their documents, when their information is going to be sent to the state, etc. Let's not forget, also, that they do NOTHING on time. I have had to spend an hour on the phone with them every day to get my prelicensing FINALLY sent over to the state department after all of my paperwork was completed.... Now I have to wait another 2 days before the Department gets it, and then 3 days after that before I'll get my license. That's if they actually send it over this time. 1 month of pay GONE because of them.

The CSR's there are completely incompetent...I will NEVER use them again or recommend anyone to use them.

No wonder you failed. You can barely speak English.

I have used License Coach because NAA had me use them to start working with them, let me say they are awful!!Lots of wrong information and no video help. I ended up going to Americas Professionals and the course was a breeze!!!! License coach has a few short videos which do NOTHING! Americas Professional is ALLLLL Videos and explains everything very detailed any easily.

It is not easy to use the wording is terrible. I am using the low cost version.

It does not help. It does not provide real life examples.

Hate it.

Looking elsewhere.

Well, with all respect for those who think that Exam FX is not a good insurance licensing program to study. I have to say, and probably is noticeable in my writing that English is not my primary language. I pass my L&AH licenses at the first try. I don't believe that there is a silver bullet to have people pass their license at the first attempt. Some people think that it is going to be easy, and they just don't study hard enough. I would recommend Exam FX because the simulated exam is very similar to the actual test. At least here in Minnesota.

Course is extremely wordy and repetitive, it is very hard to absorb. It is supposed to be a 40 hour class but there is about 100 hours of material.

I really liked ExamFX. I passed the exam with an 81%. I read through all the material and took notes, watched all videos and passed the end-of-chapter quizzes. I didn't pass the guarantee exam because I scored a 78% and still did well on the real exam after having studied what I most of what I missed. I wouldn't say that means the gaurentee exam is much harder but it prepared me very well.



If you take the time and effort to really learn the material (as you should if you desire to be an agent) you should do well using the program.

My company sent me Examfx for my Life Health insurance certification and for Series 7. My thoughts...



For Life/Health the majority of it was good however not very deep. I noticed in several chapters discrepancies (they stated a different time for the blackout-period in their chapter compared to their quizzes/test). Overall it was alright not great. really had to memorize the material.



For Series 7...NOT GOOD. It is terrible for series 7 prep. Every chapter there is something wrong. With the chapter quizzes, if you get something wrong they do not explain why its wrong. If you click "review" which is suppose to bring you back to the relevant part of the chapter the question is asking about, the majority of the time it brings you to totally something different. I have screenshotted numerous questions like this.



with BOTH life/health and series 7....within the chapter they don't keep it consistent. They will be using one word to describe something or someone and then randomly change it to another with telling the reader that these two names are the same,

I studied using ExamFX for the Life & Health exam, I studied for 8 days based off of what the course directed me to do. I took the certificate on the 8th day, and the guarantee exam and then took the real test from prometric on the 9th day. I passed with flying colors the first time I took the exam, I honestly thought it was very helpful, and I recommend using the webinar (bob jones) is a great instructor (yes that is his name). You can also email him and ask for him to send you a recording of the webinar, and that way you can go at your own pace. He is wiling to help and give ample advice on how to pass it the first try. I believe one of the biggest problems people have with examfx is they keep taking the practice exams so they memorize the answers instead of understand the material. Bob said don't take them more than 5 times, so if you don't pass study your ass off and don't try and take it again until your confident you can get at least an 80%.

DON'T USE THEM. Do yourself a favor and Save your Money and TIME. I was told I could choose any course from their list for my Life and Health License. When I called the Department of Insurance they would not accept their Commercial Line course. This was a total waste of my precious time. When I called Examfx they just told me to take another course and that I should know which course to take and that they are not responsible for the courses I took...I don't know why that course was even offered to me in the first place...DO YOUR DUE DILIGENCE and go to someone else...

PostPosted: Wed Nov 16, 2016 6:48 pm   Post subject: Sponsorship? Alt company?  

Hello, i am currenlty looking to obtain my series 6&63 but I don't have sponsorship. I called examfx today and they stated they do sponsor individuals to clients to take exam. This is great as i have called multiple companies and everyone has said unless i was employed i can not be sponsored.



After reading these negative reviews i think i need to dig more. To make sure a rep isnt just trying to get me to buy the course.



Im seeing bad reviews but no alt options. Does anyone have any other suggested company?
