What's the big advantage to get the 66 over the 63?

Feb 5, 2009 5:29 pm

I just got my 7 the other day and my firm told me to get the 63 so I can start trading. I feel I'll get the 63 start making some money then go from there once i've got some time under my belt with trading.

Seriously, though, what firm do you work for? Ask your principal why you can't get a 66. You'll be able to make commissions and have a trail. If I were you I'd start asking some questions. And double check to make sure you're not working out of a boiler room.

Discounts don't require 66.

Get the 66, there's no reason to not get it.

take 66, which is inclusive of 63.  it takes same amount of energy, time, and effort to prepare for both exams. 


and more reputable firms tend to require 66 as opposed to 63.


check this series 66 item out on ebay. (item number 140309454760).

Ummmmmm....no.  Ask my friend who had no problem with the 63 but can't pass the 66.  Don't get me wrong...if you passed the 7, you should be able to pass the 66 just fine, but at the same time, it's a step up from the 63 in degree of difficulty.
 
My advice...don't waste your time on the 63 unless you suck at taking tests.  Get the 66 and be done with it.

The problem with the 66 is not the difficulty of the subject matter or length.  Its that they had a bunch of attorneys write it, and it reads more like a deposition than a test.  I have no idea how that compares with the 63.
