One of my clients wants me to get the Series 7 and 66 licenses so that they can put me in front of their clients on stuff, and so they are sponsoring me. I’ve never taken these exams.
I gather from other sources and comments here that the test length is comparable to the CFA exams but the test difficulty isn’t.
Can anyone offer general advice and pointers as to how much effort or detail is required in order to pass these things? Looking at the Schwesser guide, it so far looks fairly straightforward, and I guess it’s really the regulatory nit-picky rules that’s will be a pain, yes?
Thoughts and perspectives would be helpful here, at least insights on what’s required to study efficiently for these and any “gotchas” that may not be initially obvious. Like a drivers’ license, the real goal is just to pass without taking ridiculous amounts of time to prepare.
