There will be a special test for brokers who want to do them, but if you do not do them you do not have to know about them.
I wonder if we will be able to sell mutual funds that invest in municipal securities or if we will have to take that extra test.
My manager said it is just a way for the NASD to get more money by charging more testing fees.

Took my 7 a few weeks ago. Used Firesolutions. Passed with 88%. Has quite a few questions on CMO's,yet Federal,State,Nasd rules and regs were the majority. Only had a few options calculations. Mostly option scenerios. Morning session was horrible and afternoon session was a breeze.
