Series 7 FAQ
Can I take the exam even though I am not sponsored?

You must be sponsored by a FINRA member firm in order to take the Series 7. Learn more about sponsorship and consider the SIE exam if you aren't sponsored.

How do I enroll in a live Series 7 class?

Add All Access Pass to your course and you can enroll in any of our Series 7 live (virtual) courses through your Training Center, along with an onboarding call and review sessions. With the All Access Pass, you have unlimited access to our instructor-led sessions.

How many questions should I complete on the Practice Exams before I take the exam?

You should plan on completing about 1,000 practice questions online prior to taking the exam in addition to the benchmark and diagnostic exams. If your scores are not within passing range at that point, you may need to complete more questions. For best results, be sure to use unused questions when building your exams so that you continue to get exposure to new applications of the concepts.

Are the slides and material covered in the All Access Pass classes different from what’s covered in the video lectures?

The live-class slides are the same slides shown in the videos, representing the best distillation of the content we offer. The advantage of the recordings is that you can watch them on your own schedule, and you can speed up or replay material. The advantage of having an instructor deliver the information life is the student-teacher connection that offers the most nuanced test insights, including real-world examples, performance-enhancing tips, questions from other students, and even jokes.

What is the usual study time for the Series 7 exam?

Assuming you are working full-time while preparing for the examination, you should allow yourself 5-7 weeks or 75-100 hours to read through the material and complete practice exams. 

How does the difficulty of your practice questions compare to the difficulty of the questions I am likely to see on the actual exam?

Our questions are designed to be a bit more challenging than most of the questions you’ll see on the exam. You should be scoring high 60s/low 70s online before taking the exam.  The diagnostic exams and benchmark exam are the same level of difficulty as the actual exam, so any passing score on those exams is good.

Should I expect to use the full time allotted on the Series 7 exam?

Most students are able to finish the exam within the allotted time, without being rushed.
