You are not required to have a sponsor to take the Series 65 Exam.
If you come to class having read the material you should give yourself about one week to complete practice exams after the conclusion of the program before taking the examination. If you have not read the material before coming to class you will need more time after class ends.
Though it is not mandatory to read the material before coming to class, doing so will enable you to reinforce the concepts discussed in the book. If you have not read the material prior to class you will need more time after class to prepare before you take the examination.
Assuming you are working full time while preparing for the examination, you should allow yourself two to three weeks to read through the material and another two to three weeks to complete practice exams. You should attend the live class, watch the online KIT or receive private instruction one to two weeks prior to the examination. The total study time is typically four to six weeks.
Most students are able to finish the exam within the alloted time, without being rushed.
