    this is my first time posting an English thread.Please forgive me if my words are not precise.

    Let's get down to the business.I am preparing the series 3 exam,attempting to be a CTA. I have traded for a few years and last year I exerted a return of 36.64% and a max drawdown of 6.7%. I know this is not a very good record,but it surely encourages me to be a CTA.

    However,this is a difficult task for a foreigner,as you can see,my English is not very good.(be honest,it's very bad) and where I live is totally no information on CTA--China.So I have to make a pointed studying.words,knowledge and regulations are just some of the bewildering amount of information I will have to learn.

    Can anyone passed the exam offer me some study materials or information on it ? anything will be very helpful.

    thanks a lot!!!

    If you get the study guides from STC it should be ok. There are questions on the practice exams that were actually on the exam when I took the test. I had to look around to see if someone was playing a trick on me.

    If you ace the regulations (and the STC will ensure you will), just doing ok on the hedging questions will put you over the top

    What does 'STC' stand for? or where can I get this guide?

    What they said...

    I have several licences and the 3 was by far the easiest.

    STC or PassPerfect study guides will do the trick just fine.
