What Series 65 prep materials to use?

  1. Hi Everyone,

    I was wondering if anyone who has taken the series 65 exam could tell me what the best preparation materials (preferably in the form of a book) are for passing the exam.

    I've searched all over the internet and can only find ads for exam prep courses and books, but no indepedent ratings of the various options.

    Thanks in advance for any help you can offer me!
  2. Haven't taken the Series 65 exam, but Securities Training Corporation (STCUSA.COM)
    is one of the very best securities and financial exam preparators.

    Among the STC S-65 prep options, consider the 4-hour On-Demand Online Lecture
    combined with the Study Manual & CD-ROM Final Exams
    - if you're totally new to the test subject; for $200.

    To me, the advantage of this combination is:
    1. in addition to studying a manual,

    2. you review the 4-hour Lecture Demo online as many times as you want
    within a 15 day period vs. scheduling and taking a one-time class,

    3. and the convenience of repeatedly reviewing Final Exam questions
    and answers via CD vs. printed exams & answers.

    As an secondary:D alternative, there's Dearborn, Pass Perfect, and others.

    Good luck.
  3. I got the Dearborn Passtrak study guide. Didn't really need to study much though....

  5. Hey Everyone,

    I looked at the options posted, and it seemed like Dearborn would suit me best.

    Thanks for your help!
