Common Series 66 Exam Candidate Frequently Asked Questions:

Who Takes the Series 66 Exam?

If you want to be able to both trade securities, and also be able to practice as an investment adviser to private clients, one way of reducing the cost and time necessary to achieve both of these career goals is to take the Uniform Combined State Law Examination, or Series 66 exam, which is administered by FINRA (Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (formerly NASD)) on behalf of the North American Securities Administrators Association (NASAA).

 

 

Is the Series 66 exam different state to state?

No, the Series 66 exam is a federal exam and is the same in every state.

Do I need any other securities licenses to hold a Series 66 license?

You have to hold a Series 7 license or plan on obtaining a Series 7 license to take the Series 66 exam.

What content does the Series 66 exam cover?

Instead of taking two separate exams, the Uniform State Law Examination (Series 63) and the NASAA Investment Adviser Competency Exam (Series 66), you can take the Series 66 exam. The test will require you to understand the Uniform Securities Act, which allows qualified brokers to trade securities in all fifty states, along with basic stock market terms and definitions, and rules for soliciting clients and handling their accounts. In addition, you'll also need to understand risk, different investment types, appropriate investments for different kinds of investors, interest rates and their effects, retirement planning, investment law, inflation and deflation, portfolio management, and all other aspects of advising private investors.

As you can see, the investment adviser portion of the Series 66 exam will make up the bulk of it, and will be much more difficult. It's a difficult and challenging test, but if you're planning on both trading securities and advising private clients on investments, the Series 66 exam is an excellent way to save both time and money in getting your career established.

Do I need a sponsor to take the Series 66?

No, you do not need a sponsor or to be employed by a broker/dealer to take the Series 66 exam. To schedule an examination, a firm should file a Form U4 for a candidate or an individual can file a Form U-10 and pay the fee

How do I schedule my Series 66 exam?

Once the correct form has been submitted, you will have to wait until your testing window is opened. Then you may schedule your exam with either Prometric or PearsonVUE.

What should I bring to the test center the day of my Series 66 exam?

You should bring your Key Facts from our Series 66 exam prep course to re-read just prior to going in to take your Series 66 exam. This will load your memory for the test. You cannot take anything into the test room with you other than what the proctor provides you. You will be able to leave your personal belongings in a locker in the testing center waiting room. They will provide you with a pen/pencil, scratch paper, and a basic function calculator at the test site. Make sure to write down your cheat sheet on your scratch paper when you sit down at your cubicle prior to starting your Series 66 exam. This will allow you to refer back to it whenever you need to during the exam.

If I don't pass is there any waiting period that applies before I can retake the Series 66 exam?

The following waiting periods apply for individuals needing to retake the Series 66 exam following a failed attempt: (1) a minimum of 30 days after failing the first exam before the second taking of the exam can be scheduled; (2) a minimum of 30 days after failing the exam for the second time before the third taking of the exam can be scheduled; and (3) a minimum of 180 days after failing the exam for a third time before the fourth taking of the exam (and each subsequent taking) can be scheduled. These waiting periods mirror those in place for FINRA-sponsored examinations.

What do the questions on the Series 66 exam look like?

Here are two Series 66 exam questions that come from our materials that are very similar to the formatting and content of the questions on the exam:

1. Under the Uniform Securities Act, registration requirements for agents may include all of the following, EXCEPT:

AA Consent to Service of Process

B. Minimum net capital

C. An examination

D. Surety bonding

 

2. With regard to the Investment Advisers Act of 1940, which of the following persons does not have to register as an investment adviser?

I. A Broker/dealer who gives advice and charges a specific fee for that advice

II. Agent of a broker/dealer who gives investment advice within the course of his or her duties and charges a fee for that advice

III. Broker/dealer who gives investment advice that is incidental to the course of his or her business

IV. Attorney who writes a legal opinion of counsel for a municipal bond

A. I,II and IV

B. III only

C. III and IV

D. All of the above

 

Answers and explanations to the previous questions as found in our comprehensive Series 66 exam prep online and print materials are as follows:

1. Answer - B Explanation:

Remember that you must READ THE QUESTION at least twice to determine what the question is asking prior to looking at the answers. So, which of those answers listed is NOT a requirement for registration as an agent under state law (Uniform Securities Act)? The correct answer is B since minimum net capital may be required of broker/dealers and investment advisers, but not agents.

These questions are great because they give you three true statements that may help you answer another question within the Series 66 exam (answers A, C and D).

 

2. Answer - C Explanation:

On your scratch paper after you read through response I above you would write no since response I will not be in the answer (A B/D that charges a separate fee for giving investment would have to register as an IA). Then you can look at the answers. LOOK AT THE ANSWERS ABOVE. Since answer A and D both have roman numeral I in it you already know they are not the correct answers. You can now eliminate answers A and D as the correct answer. You have now significantly increased your chances of getting the answer correct. You can now move on to roman numeral IV since the only answers left (B and C) both include roman numeral III. Is roman numeral IV going to be in the correct answer? Yes (attorneys whose performance of services is solely incidental to the practice of their profession are exempt from the definition of investment adviser). Knowing this rules out answer B since you now know III & IV are both going to be in the correct answer and answer B only lists III.
