Canadian Writing Series 7

Any tips from Canadians who have written the Series 7 or from those who have written the Series 7 in general. Is the Series 7 basically just the CSC but with U.S. tax and regulations? If so, why is it so long?

I have the same questions as above about the Series 66. Study materials?

Thanks guys! Continue reading
