If you are taking the Series 7 and have a specific date you want to start trading for a pro firm (in my case Bright) how long before that date do you need to schedule the test? For example, I'm looking at being ready to trade 9/2. Would I want to take the test one week before (8/26)? I'm not sure of the process. For example, how do they get the results sent to the firm? By mail? If so, are they mailed the following day? Is the only step left funding the account?
