What You Should Know About Series 63Aug 15, 2014Many may want to know more about the Series 63 exam, since it is required by all but a handful of states to be taken by those seeking positions as professionals in the financial investment industry. Unless those seeking licensing for the sale of investment products live in Florida, New Jersey, Colorado, Maine, Louisiana, Ohio, Maryland, Vermont, Puerto Rico or the District of Columbia, a passing score of the Series 63 test is required before a license is approved. Passing and obtaining a Series 63 license demonstrates that the candidate receiving it has basic knowledge and understanding of the laws and regulations of the state in which they take the Series 63 exam as outlined under the Uniform Securities Act. It should be noted that many of the top brokerage firms also require the passing of the Series 66 test and financial advisors are expected to pass the Series 7 exam in addition to the Series 63. Series 63 Organizations Series 63, as well as other Series exams, have been prepared by the NASAA (North American Securities Administrators Association) and are all administered by the FINRA (Financial Industry Regulatory Authority), which was previously known as the NASD, or National Association of Securities Dealers. The purpose of the Series 63 test, as well as other similar exams, is to provide harmonization and standardization of security regulations and laws between all participating states across the nation, as outlined under the 1956 Uniform Securities Act legislation. The North American Securities Administrators Association has been the driving force for standardizing securities laws and regulations with its statewide efforts beginning at the organization’s formation in 1916. From its start in Kansas, the NASAA has since brought organization to all U.S. states and territories except for the few mentioned above. The primary aim of the NASAA is to protect the public from investment fraud by providing securities investment advisors for the financial industry that have been licensed as a result of demonstrating quality, competency and ethics. The Series 63 exam, as well as other Series products, acts as a vehicle to help determine these traits. About the Exam Series 63 contains 60 multiple choice questions and 5 questions which are considered experimental and are used to help sculpt future exams. Only the 60 standard questions are considered in determining the overall score which requires a 72 percent or above to pass and equates to 43 of 60 correct Series 63 exam answers. Candidates do not know which of the five questions are experimental. The Series 63 test is scheduled within a 120-day window upon registration with the FINRA and payment of the $115 fee. It is recommended that candidates wanting to take the Series 63 test prep for it via independent study and/or by using the Series 63 study guide. If the candidate fails the exam the first or second time, they will be required to wait 30 days before retaking it. If a candidate doesn’t obtain a passing grade by the third try or beyond, they will be required to wait at least 180 days before trying to get their Series 63 license again.
Series 63 Study TipsAug 12, 2014In most states, it is a requirement for those seeking licensing in the financial securities industry to first pass the Series 63. Developed by the North American Securities Administrators Association, a Series 63 license reveals to securities brokerage firms and agencies that the holder has at least a minimum knowledge of the regulations and legalities of security sales in the state of issue, as well as an understanding of ethical obligations and practices governing financial investments. Since a Series 63 license is required in order to sell securities in most states, it is extremely important that the Series 63 test is passed. Although the Series 63 exam can be retaken, a 30-day waiting period is required after failing the first or second time and 180 days must transpire before the exam can be retaken after failing the third, or subsequent, time. It is therefore worthwhile to prepare for the Series 63 prior to taking it. Following are a few Series 63 study tips to help you effectively prepare for the Series 63 exam. Series 63 Study Guide In order to get a format and content overview of the Series 63 test, download the Series 63 study guide from the NASAA website here. The various subjects are covered in the study guide including financial obligations, ethical practices and the acts and regulations pertaining to securities of the state in which the test is being taken. Uniform Securities Act Candidates planning on taking the Series 63 exam should also be familiar with the Uniform Securities Act, whose laws and regulations are used by participating states to govern interstate trading, customer account management and solicitation. Series 63 test prep knowledge can be broadened by also being familiar with business practice legalities, industry terminology and standards for record keeping. It is also recommended by the NASAA that test candidates review the organization’s statements of policy and model rules before taking the exam. Use Flash Cards Flash cards are a great way to retain knowledge because they operate via repetition and visual assistance. Series 63 test prep flash cards can either be found on several online websites, or they can be made by the candidate. Flash cards consist of a question printed on one side and the correct answer printed on the opposite side. Take the Practice Exam A practice exam is available to further help candidates with their Series 63 test prep efforts. The questions on the practice exam are similar to what will be on the actual test and they will help the candidate gauge their strengths and weaknesses as well as make necessary adjustments during the preparation stage. Areas of weakness can be strengthened by applying more study time to those subjects. The practice exam can be retaken in order to determine if weak areas have, indeed, been strengthened. When to Study It is recommended to do the bulk of studying in the weeks just prior to taking the exam so that the information is fresh on the mind. Candidates that register for a Series 63 license are given 120 days by the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) to schedule their exam. Candidates can either prepare and then register and schedule their test right away, or register and study before scheduling an exam date.
