A recent Series 10 tutoring program was designed for a candidate who was promoted to branch office manger at a large national firm.

The Series 10 tutor asked him to go back and review the muni section in the Series 10 book during the next several days and scheduled two 90 minute virtual tutoring sessions. During the first session our Series 10 tutor detailed the key concepts and application of the rules relating to municipal securities and advised him to take all of the Series 10 practice questions on municipal securities and to review the answers carefully. By the second session the following Monday the Series 10 candidate's simulated Series 10 exam results showed a dramatic improvement on the municipal securities questions on the Series 10 exam. The second session covered test taking strategies, a final review of the municipal regulations and key test points for the other main areas on the Series 10 exam. The candidate passed the Series 10 exam with a score of 87%.

A large producer was recruited to a new firm to manage a high profile office. He had been a producing manager at another firm but had only been required to take the series 24 exam.

The Series 10 tutor assigned Series 10 practice tests as homework each evening and reviewed the results with the Series 10 candidate at the start of each session.
