I had a phone interview with Charles Schwab for their broker service representative trainee position and was invited to an information session that has a test at the end to judge you chances of passing the S7.  I have done some research about what to expect on this SIFMA assessment test and found that it is 56 questions no calculator divided into two parts 30 of them logic questions and the other 26 math. The only information I have found to what specifically to expect is long division but I am sure that doesn't account for all 26 of the math questions and have found nothing as what the logic ones are like.   Has anyone taken this test that could possibly give me a few example questions of what to expect and also what math I should brush up on besides long division?  I know you can not really study for logic questions but I would like an example of one that is similar to whats on the test so I can have an idea of what to expect.  Also what are the next steps in actually getting the job after the info session?  I will be very grateful for any help!

...no really, Ice, how do you really feel about it?  you need to stop holding back and learn to let your true feelings out...

It's easy.  Brush up on fractions and long division for the math part, and pay attention to the might, will, should, etc on the logic.  You should be fine.

I dunno.  I'd talk to Chuck...see if he knows.

Thank you very much OrDieTrying I appreciate the advice.  Ice, i 'm not stressing about an information session I just believe in being prepared and I thought this forum was a good place to ask sorry if I offended you.

Month not going well Ice?  There is a great thread started in general you should take a peek at.

That's pretty funny.  Be careful, you're going to get him all riled up and 8 pages later we'll have posts in rainbow colors.
