And below is one example of a BEF post that we all knew was not very good. The problem with Put/BEF is that he knows just enough to be dangerous.

Because I have the 7 and 63 I think I can take either the 66 or 65. If what you said is true about the make-up of the exams I'd rather take the S65. The 66 includes the 63 crap I already have and if the 65 includes some 7 content and more questions I'm fine with that. I hated that 63 test.
I don't believe you get a choice. You must take the Series 66, as I said the Series 65 is for people who do not hold a Series 7.
What the Series 66 will do for you is allow you to avoid taking the Series 63, but if you already have 63 that's a moot point.
For new brokers the appropriate licenses to take would be Series 7 to make you legal at the federal level and Series 66 which makes you legal at the state level and also qualifies you as an IAR.
Established brokers take Series 65 if they do not have a Series 7 and Series 66 if they do.
Series 65 is 130 questions in 3 hours--less time than is allowed for Series 7.
Series 66 is 100 questions in 2 1/2 hours--a bit more time than is allowed for Series 7.
The Series 65 will have about 90 of the same type of questions that appear on Series 66 and the other 40 are things that appear on Series 7 exams.
What, in particular, did Put/BEF post that you thought was worthwhile?
He knew/knows a lot about the business. For example, we had an interesting discussion about the Bond Daddies one day. His depth of knowledge on this obscure subject exceded my own.
By the way, for the curious, the Bond Daddies are the fathers of modern day cold calling. They were for the most part, boiler room operators robbing the unsuspecting blind. However, ethical brokers applied the Bond Daddies cold calling regimen to quality bonds, many building million dollar plus books in the process. There was a book written about them titled "Thirty Seconds to Success."
Hi Hulk (without the I)!
I think you'll have to miss him from afar, as I believe that his latest incarnation has been retired.
You mean I'm just sittin' in the bleachers drinking a beer and there's no entertainment down there on the field? <?:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />

Think of that movie the Replacement's.
there's always entertainment.
It would have been great if Big Sleazy actually had a drop of humility. I don't care how much somebody knows about anything if they don't have a grasp on basic human decency.
He admittedly "played chat boards" when he was bored........maybe I'm reading too much into what he meant but I think it was obvious by his candor that he was "just playing" most the time. Although his posts certainly indicated an insight into the business, the content of his "playing" was rarely useful or helpful. Someone who participates in discussions in the manner that he did, in my opinion has little respect for themselves or their own (or others) time. Why would I (or anyone) want to listen to someone like that, regardless of their experience. People who use their experience to inflate their ego's are rarely worth listening to.
Frankly........good riddance to But Traitor, Big Cheezy Flubb, IgnrantHulk, Dirk and the rest of those who are so bored and pathetic that they incite others for entertainment.
Don’t forget about how much you LOVE being next to the chinese food place and the laundry and how Mary Lou rocks.
Indy, I got to admit I find him amusing as well… <!–
