Just took the 7, and it's not that hard, its a lot of info but not very difficult. From everything I have heard the CFA is much more difficult. Good luck

I would say that the series 7 is considerably easier than the level 1.

You will find the 7 MUCH easier.

You have been posting on here since December 06' and you are just now taking the Series 7???????????  Do you even work for a broker/dealer????

Why couldn't he be working in the industry without being registered?  There are other jobs in this industry that don't require a 7; if he's been studying for his CFA then he does work in the business in some capacity.

Just took LII.  CFA is significantly more difficult.

CFA and Series 7 are two different animals.  I just took Level II.  The Series 7 can be beat by just taking tests and memorizing, the CFA (except for maybe Level I although it is much harder) cannot.  You must know the material cold and the competition is stiff.  You do learn a lot more than you do on the 7 though.
