Quick question to help with my Series 7 Studying. <?: prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />


 


Does anyone know or a resource (or could we create one together) that simply has a list of all securities and their corresponding settlement schedules (T+3, T+2 etc).


 


Also, has anybody else had the experience in studying for the 7 where they are doing really well on the advanced concepts, but keep screwing up little memorization things like settlement dates?

wait till you try to figure out margin accounting and the stuff about ex-dividends, record dates, declarations

Margin Accounting, Ex-div dates...all of that has been easy for me...don't know why and I may still bomb on those during the test. But the little memorization stuff just kills me!

If you are with Jones, your SFF trainer will give you what you are looking for just before you take the finals.

Man, I'd be more worried about the bulk of the test rather than small things. I mean, buy/sell settlement ain't that difficult but that's not the vast majority of the test.

know your options, munis, and regulatory info. Bone up on REITs and CMOs too.

Keep pounding that settlement stuff till you get it right though... make it click.  Its only 5-10 questions on the exam, but they're placed as gimme's, you'll want to nail them.  This way you have a little breathing room on options and all that fun stuff.

as I recall now you'd better know options cold...especially barrier options...

Congrats.  BTW, you studied about 20 pts too hard.  Think of all the golf you could have played instead of studying so hard to get a good score.

Thats what I thought when I got a 86%, lol.  I scaled back for the 66 and got a 87% should have played more golf!!
