Series 3 Finra Exam- any tips?

Post by Futuresinfo » Sun May 13, 2018 12:23 pm

Hi fellow bogleheads!

I’m looking to expand my futures knowledge by passing the Finra Series 3 exam. However, the available material online is quite outdated with mixed reviews. Has any of you studied for this exam and have books you’d recommend? I’d like to take it within the next few months.

Appreciate any advice!

Kaplan Financial offers FINRA exam prep books and an online question database called Qbank. Get the series 3 exam book, read it entirely, and then do many Qbank questions. Study very hard to avoid failing.

Nothing new to add, but reinforcing the Kaplan suggestion. Family members have taken 3 different FINRA exams, and found Kaplan helpful. All passed.
Okay, I get it; I won't be political or controversial. The Earth is flat.
