Anyone have any recommendations on study materials? Thanks!
I used the STC materials and did fine (although there was more math than I expected)...take the practice exams (or print them all out with the answers and study) and you'll be fine. The 3 is one of the easier exams in terms of breadth of material.
I'm willing to part with the printed materials/binder (don't know where the disc is right now) for $50. Everything is clean - no highlighting or notes.
Any other feedback?
Passtrak gets lousy reviews on Amazon, but I think that's because only unhappy people posted. I thought the book was good and recommend it.
The Series 3 isn't too bad -- easier than the Series 7 and way easier than the CFA exams, if you are familiar with them.

My wife and myself both used the Dearborn material (thats now called Kaplin). Pretty easy exam if you study the material even a little. Here is a link.
I appreciate your input -- I check in on your fund performance every now and then. Keep up the good work!
I avoided the CFA program and instead did the CMT. I still "toy" every now and then with the CFA because it's so highly valued in the investment community but I think the material will probably make my head explode!
I'm abroad and have a two-year old study guide for the Series 3, but I'd really like to take some practice tests on a computer screen, CD-ROM or online. That's how the test is given, right? Anyone know of any?
You are tested at a testing center with a camera...its a timed test...no notes just blank note paper...you can use a calculator. if you fail you do not need to wait 30 days...
Ok, but I still prefer to take some tests in advance on computer, if possible. Anyone know?
by the way... there is a bank of tests and you do not get to know the correct answers of the ones you got wrong...
there is only about three options questions... thank gawd...
