Good Series 65 Study Materials

Discussion in 'Professional Trading' started by cdcolvin, Apr 5, 2006.

  1. It's time for me to get a 65. Currently hold a 7 and 63. Does anyone have any recommendations for course materials that can produce good results on the exam? I'd like to study about an hour a day, get a good knowledge of the materials then open a test window.

    Any suggestions?

  2. Found this:

    Who requires series 65? I know this is for Investment Advisors. Does everyone who has to file an ADV form have to have a series 65 license? Is the requirement different from state to state?
  3. Huh? If you have a 7 and 63, the 65 is pointless as your 7 and 63 already cover all the material in the 65. Not sure who you work for but that doesnt make any sense unless I'm missing something.
  4. As a 7 and 63 license holder, I can only work on a commisison basis. With the 65 I can charge a fee for services.

    I used the study materials from Securities Training Corporation, after returning materials from Dearborn and AIT.

  6. Agree with segv, stc is the best out there as far as mimicking the real test. Dearborn sux.
  7. ADV FORM -What is the best way to go about doing this?



    start here .... you need to get an account with IARD before you file ADV

    Even if you have the Series 7 and 63, you would still need to have either the Series 65 or Series 66 to be able to collect fees for giving investment advice. You can find out more at

    The best books that I have found on the Series 65 are the ones by Kaplan ( and Empire Stockbroker Training Institute ( I feel that both of these books are equally good although the one from Empire is a little less expensive.
