DSST Personal Finance
Hey test takers,

I'm cramming for DSST Personal Finance.  What study methods did you guys use and how many hours did you study for?

Also, passing is a 400 out of a 200-500 scale.  What % is that?

Any help would be awesome!

I used InstantCert. The scoring is very opaque and there isn't a set percentage. The questions have different weights so it depends on which ones you miss what score you end up with.

I took this and passed without studying, but I have some knowledge of the info that's already on there. Have you bought a house? That is helpful. Do you have a 401(k) or 403(b) plan? Also helpful.

For people who are in their 30's and up, this might be easier than someone in their 20's for instance.

What resources, if any, did you use to study for the DSST Personal Finance?

Thank you in advance.
I am so happy you passed.  I have tried to pass this exam 3 times and I have not been able to do it. That is why I decided to tried InstanCert. Any suggestions?
