Series 65 Tutor Insight - The Diminimus Exemption

by Michael Weiss, CFA on 02/23/14

Most students know that there is a registration exemption for certain investment advisers and their reps.  STATE  investment advisers/reps with no office in a state and who have 5 or fewer clients in that state are generally exempt from registration in that state.  This diminimus exemption does not apply to broker dealers.  Although, some states have enacted diminimus exemptions for broker dealers. With that said, this exemption for broker dealers is NOT in the Uniform Securities ACT or related model rules. Broker dealers have to register in a state if they meet the definition of broker dealer, even if you they only deal with one client.

Series 65 versus Series 66. Which one should I take?

by Michael Weiss, CFA on 08/30/13

Many students are unsure as to which exam to sit for; the Series 65 or Series 66. Conventional wisdom suggests that the level of difficulty is the same for the Series 65 and Series 66.  While it is true that the questions might be of comparable difficulty, the passing scores are not the same.  You need a 75% to pass the Series 66 while you need a 72% to pass the Series 65.  Three points does not seem like a lot but that margin could be the difference between passing and failing the Series 66. It is not unusual to score in the the low to mid 70's on the Series 66.  These are challenging exams and as a result, very few people, score in the 90s on these exams! You might also want to consider your strengths and weaknesses in terms of the content.  On the Series 66, there is greater emphasis on the laws and regulations compared to the Series 65.  The Series 65 has a greater emphasis on investment topics.  Lastly, you should consider getting a Series 66 or Series 65 Tutor. 

How to Pass the Series 65 Exam

by Michael Weiss, CFA on 10/07/12

The difficulty level for the Series 65 Exam is comparable to that of the Series 7 Exam but some students find the 65 especially challenging.  Do the people taking the Series 65 Exam have less experience than those taking the Series 7 Exam?  Actually, the opposite is probably true. Then, what is the deal here? There are a few factors that work against the Series 65 test takers but most importantly, they don't have as much motivation to pass the test compared to people taking the Series 7 Exam.  For many people taking the Series 7 Exam, they need to pass( sometimes on the first try) to stay employed.  Series 65 test takers don't usually have this issue.  Students taking the Series 65 Exam need to find the motivation to study and should approach the test as if their job is on the line.  This is where a Series 65 Tutor can very helpful.  Not only will the tutor help you understand difficult concepts but at the same time, a Series 65 Tutor can help motivate student to study.  

Those Formulas Look Difficult!

by Michael Weiss, CFA on 07/18/12

There are some very complicated formulas that are covered on the Series 65 and Series 66 Exams.  Without a background in finance, it might be difficult to calculate the net present value (NPV) or the internal rate of return (IRR) of a project. Then there is the capital asset pricing model  (Er = rf + b(rm-rf) and a few other challenging ones such as modified duration. Well, the good news is that the probability of having to calculate something like NPV is very low.  I can teach you how to do it but we would likely be wasting our time.  The calculator you get to use is very limited.  You cannot even raise a number to a power!  Much more importantly, you need to know how to identify stuff. In other words, you need to know the hows, the whens and the whys of these formulas.
