Focus of the Series 79 top-off exam

When the Series 79 exam initially launched, it was heavily focused on math concepts and calculations, which comprised about 30% of the exam. Now, however, it has evolved tremendously and become much more of a regulation and process-driven exam, which means more memorization.

In fact, only about 10% to 15% of the questions are calculation-based, with the remaining allocated to the rules, processes, and their applications. This is why learning the content, understanding it, and remembering it are so essential to doing well on the Series 79. And the best possible tool for the job is Brainscape’s collection of flashcards.
