The test covers financial industry regulation, securities law, ethics, investments and economics. All these topics factor into a financial advisor’s day-to-day work. Most candidates devote considerable time to studying for the Series 65.
Different States have different requirements in become an Investment Advisor Representative (IAR) so check your states department of securities licensing to find out its requirements.
Series 65 vs Series 66 Exam
The Series 65 exam is designed for those who do not have a Series 7 license. The content of both exams are similar though the Series 65 will be more heavily concentrated on Investment products and economics (like you would need to learn for the SIE and Series 7 Exam). … The Series 66 exam has a little more State law (such as what you will find in the Series 63 Exam) and some esoteric investment products.
Our audio lessons for both the Series 65 and Series 66 cover the material you would need to learn for the SIE and Series 7 exam so it may be a little more than you need for the Series 66 but we want you to be fully prepared!
The only difference between the two series of exam lessons (the 65 and 66) is that the Series 66 exam also covers the material needed for the Series 63 exam.
