This is easily one of the top questions we get asked here at the Securities Institute. Yet the answer isn’t as simple as you might think. First, everyone learns differently and we have long discovered that there simply isn’t an effective one size fits all approach when it comes to effective preparation for the Series 3 Exam. Every student is different and has to find the right mix of materials to meet their needs. However there are a few steps everyone can take to improve their odds and ensure they are doing everything they can to prepare for their exam.
First, always start with the textbook. Our Series 3 textbook is quite literally the foundation of our learning system. This book has everything you need to successfully pass the exam all laid out in a comprehensive, easy to follow format. Because of this we recommend that every client read the book completely and take notes of key points. This will ensure you know more than the basics, it will ensure you know the facts.
From there move to the practice tests. Take as many as you can and keep track of your results. The more you practice the more prepared you will be on test day and the higher your chances of passing the Series 3 Exam.
