Hi Y'all!



I'm a newbie & after much anticipation I finally received my series 63 study guide from Kaplan (which   most of u recommended. )



Unfortunately I'm on page 4 & I'm already struggling with the study material. I find its not an "easy read" & they use too much "technical" language/ financial jargon.



I was googling study materials up & I came across a course called "Pass the 63" & they have a one page "freebie". I found it to be less "TECHNICAL' . More like "story telling" .



As soon as I saw it I immediately thought their "level" of English was simpler.



Before I waste my "hard earned money"   on about the 'Pass the 63" material please chime in & lemme know ur thoughts about this study material.



While their 'freebie" was impressive ...I worried that after reading 200 pages of it ....it might turn out to be "too amateuristic courses." when it comes to exam testing courses.



From ur own experience...do u think that I should suck it up & stick to Kaplan or just move on to " Pass the 63"???



Thanks in advance

xoxo

ps: I would like to add that I generally dont have probs with English(although I'm fluent in some major European languages...so please dont suggest that I "take an English course etc. I dont think its me...I think its Kaplan

Edited for spelling. Typed fast & I didn't use the spellchecker.

The bottom line is that the matierial the 63 covers is painfully boring. I can't imagine anyone finding it interesting.

 
I read a few pages of the Kaplan book and quickly realized I'd never make it through the whole book, so I went to the back and read all of the tests several times.
 
I passed on my first attempt. It wasn't pretty, but I passed.

If you find the Kaplan 63 material too difficult, you are wasting your (and our) time trying to break into this field.  Harsh?  Perhaps, but would you rather waste all that time studying only to run into a brick wall?  Just wait until you get to options on the series seven, or worse yet, actual job functions.  You've shown me nothing here under your various aliases to lead me to believe that you've got what it takes.  There's a reason that your boyfriend tells you to smile and not talk...and this is a talking business.

Yeah with their "level of English" I doubt ANYONE would make it thru the whole book.



BTW...Why would anyone say "The difference is the same?". Makes it harder to understand. Just say"There is no difference."

At my firm they gave us 2 days to study for the 63. I passed with a 75 (I think) Sure, it's boring but also very easy... Not at all like the 66.. So if your having problems now.. i can't imagine you having much sucess with the Series 7 or 66..

Hey Thatgirl, in the lounge under what ladies wear you said you were going to be working in Canada and here you say you need info on studing the series 63--what gives?  You don't need the 63 in Canada!!!!

 
Are you a troll?  Are you Ms Obama? Blowjobqueen?
 
Are you just wasting everyone's time?

Roadhard- She is obviously not that smart- or she thinks we aren't.. Either way.. The only thing she has blown is her cover.
