10) Should I take the SIE and Series 6 exam on the same day?
e get this question a lot . The short answer is no. We strongly recommend that candidates take the SIE exam first without even looking at the series 6 material. Once the SIE exam has been successfully completed. We suggest candidates take a few days off, no more than a week, and then while the SIE material is still fresh, start preparing to pass the series 6 exam.
