Our first Series 63 candidate studied for approximately 40 hours reading the Series 63 textbook from another publisher and taking practice exams offered from several publishers.This candidate simply could not keep all of the rules and regulations pertaining to the administration of the Uniform Securities Act straight. This Series 63 candidate was showing a good understanding of the basic concepts but could not apply the rules of the Uniform Securities Act effectively She was scheduled to take the Series 63 exam at the end of the following week and needed some assistance to ensure she passed.
One of our Series 63 tutors administered two evaluation exams and determined that she was missing the same types of questions relating to the powers of the state administrator and the Uniform Securities Act. Our Series 63 tutor scheduled three one hour virtual tutoring sessions. The tutor explained in detail the various concepts relating to the duties and powers of the state securities administrator and the framework and application of the Uniform Securities Act.

The North American Securities Administrators Association who writes the exam questions likes to write very long and complex questions. The Series 63 exam proved to be more challenging for this new registered rep . He scored in the high 60s on his first attempt and he needed to retest as soon as possible.

This Series 63 candidate was one that was a first even for us. As a resident of Florida and the owner of his own agency for over 40 years he had not be required to take the Series 63 because he did not conduct business outside of the state of Florida. Now in his early 80s he and his son wanted to acquire an office in Georgia which does require the Series 63. Having come to terms with the fact that there was no way around taking the Series 63 if he wanted to earn commissions on the book of business in Georgia, he was ready to get started.
e sent him the hard copy of our textbook and put the plan in place to walk him through everything he needed to know to pass the Series 63. Our Series 63 tutor met with him three days a week from 10AM - 12PM for two weeks and covered all the material in a complete Series 63 review course. The Series 63 tutor then began having him take practice tests and reviewed the results, explaining the rules and regulations as they are tested by NASAA. We walked him through the material from start to finish and he was successful in passing the exam. Being older he was able to request and receive additional time to take the exam. We wish him another 20 years in the business!
