Series 7 Exam

Description


Most Series 7 study materials simply throw hundreds of questions at you without connecting the dots among all the different topics. That's why this complete, self-contained study guide for the Series 7 is different. Use it to understand the regulations, concepts, implications of suitability, product types, and markets as quickly as possible!

How hard is the Series 7?

In terms of required mental effort, the Series 7 test is actually pretty easy. The tricky part is the massive amount of information that you need to memorize. And most people get lazy about memorizing.

That's why the Series 7 has only a 65% pass rate. (Over a third of test-takers fail!)

Luckily, Brainscape has put together the dream team necessary to create an app with both the content and technology that will help you ace the exam with the least amount of annoying study time.

How to Study for the Series 7

Brainscape guarantees that you will score within the top 20th percentile if you put in the time to study the nearly 3,000 flashcards in this app.

Authored by Christian H. Cooper (CFA, FRM, & author of the FRM Study Course) and a team of ex- Kaplan Series 7 instructors & editors, this app contains all the concepts and calculation practice you need to comfortably pass on test day. It includes:

  • Nearly 3,000 cards covering every topic with a focus on Options, Municipal issues & the new Issue underwriting process.

  • Detailed practice questions and answers that connect the dots across subjects where applicable.

  • Use of Brainscape's Confidence-Based Repetition study algorithm, scientifically proven to promote better understanding and retention, not just memorization that you will forget tomorrow.

  • The ability to study anytime, anywhere using our mobile-friendly website or the Brainscape app!

  • Calculation decks in which you'll practice applying the subjects you have reviewed; and
