7 and 63 were very easy. I studied for the 7 for about a week and a half and the 63 for a weekend. I would suggest you do more than that, but it’s definitely possible to study and take the exams within 2 months. I first tried to read the books / materials, but I ended up going straight to the practice tests to identify where I needed to focus my time.

I also took a 2 or 3 day class (been so long I can’t remember) downtown which was tremendously helpful. I learned almost everything there and they gave tips to help you remember and speed through the tests. Definitely would recommend (especially if you are more of a visual learner like me)

That’s a good point. I originally took my 7 and 63 when I was in college back in 2010. I’ve heard both tests have changed a bit since then. The best advice remains to keep doing practice tests and reviewing sections you get wrong answers in. Once you’re consistently getting 90+ on practice tests you’ll do fine.

Also, from what I remember the practice tests were much harder than the actual test. Many times the practice tests try to trick you by using dates around holidays, etc. Whereas my particular series 7 and 63 tests were much easier and straightforward. This again might have changed since and I’ve also heard people can get different tests or questions (which might be just as hard), but if you’re running low on time until your test date and aren’t acing the practice tests, I wouldn’t get too nervous.
