The Series 79 is a regulatory exam that is required to perform your job as an investment banker. The exam tests all the various components of investment banking, including underwriting, mergers and acquisitions (M&A), bankruptcy, financial statement analysis, valuation, as well as the rules and regulations governing the securities industry.

Focus of the Series 79 Exam

When the exam initially launched in 2010, it was heavily focused on math concepts and calculations, which comprised about 30% of the exam. However, the Series 79 has evolved tremendously over the past couple of years and become much more of a regulation-focused exam.

You should now expect only about 10% - 15% of the questions to be calculation-based, with the remainder on rules and their applications. This is why understanding and retention are essential to your passing the Series 79.
