You guys around here helped me with the 7 and 66 last summer and I passed both test. I now have the chance to take my Series 9/10. I receive my materials within the next 2 weeks and I have 90 days to pass both or I don't get the promotion. After passing the 7 and 66, I worked in operations focusing in annuities, mutual funds, and wrap accounts so I haven't worked with options or seen much on options since last summer when studying for the 7 and 66. The 9 is all options and has me worried. It seems the 10 is a lot of compliance/regulations and I feel confident I can pass it with studying.
What is you guys take from the 9 and/or the 10? What is the best training materlal? I will be given STC books but I loved Training Consultworks online test bank for the 66. Anyone recommend any provider for these exams. I don't mind reading STC for the material, I am mainly looking for online test modules.
Thanks in advance!
I used both. My firm provided STC which I used to read. I bought TC 10 days before the exam and used it strictly for practice test. I passed the exam.
the issue with the principal exams is that they are considerably harder and just passing the practice exams isnt a straight guarantee that you are going to pass..
you have to actually understand the topics before you walk in there. very few test takers score much higher than a 75ish on the actual exam and that is after scoring 80s-90s on the practice exams.
the 9 is the options one but it is mostly rules and regs on options not so much on calculating option questions.
the 10 is a bear and has so many rules.. you need to OWN MSRB rules cold I can't really give you a full synopsis in a forum but over preparing and reading FINRa notices to members in addition to your study materials will be huge.. READING is absolutely the key to passing these exams.
