Series 7 Exam For Dummies
Your no-nonsense guide to acing the Series 7 exam
In order to become a stockbroker and sell securities, you must first pass the Series 7 exam—a 6-hour, 250-question monstrosity. Unlike many standardized tests, the Series 7 exam is harder than it seems, and people who score below 70% must retake the test, having to wait at least a month before retaking it and paying hefty registration fees. Luckily, there's Series 7 Exam For Dummies—the leading guide that not only shows you how to think like a financial advisor but also like the test designers. Rather than an all-encompassing, comprehensive textbook, this guide covers only what's on the test, offering formulas, tips, and basic info you need to study.
Packed with tips for answering questions and taking the test, Series 7 Exam For Dummies continues to be the trusted reference for anyone looking to ace the exam and start their career. The test has gone through its first major overhaul in more than a decade, so in addition to updates required to keep the book in line with the latest exam, this new edition provides two completely new practice tests. Plus, you'll find easily navigable content review covering everything you'll encounter on test day.
Brimming with valuable information and know-how, this no-nonsense guide is your ticket to scoring high on the Series 7 exam.

I love dummies series.
This one is well written, easy to understand and follow type book.
I'm using STC and Kaplan as I write to study the overall materials, and when a concept bugs me much, I just come and read the dummies.
Give it a try... another way to put it sometimes, does the wonders.
