”I’ve passed all SIE, Series 7 and Series 66 exams all thanks to the Knopman Marks training program. Give my thanks to all the team and faculty, you’ve all been very supportive, helpful, reliable and friendly throughout the process. Being completely new to the industry with no prior knowledge, I relied completely and solely on Knopman Marks materials and I still can’t believe I passed all three exams on their first attempt.”

Series 66 FAQ
Can I take the Series 66 class even though I am not sponsored?

You are not required to have a sponsor to take the Series 66 Exam.

How does the difficulty of your Series 66 practice questions compare to the difficulty of the questions I am likely to see on the actual exam?

The questions on the practice exams are slightly easier than the actual Series 66 Exam, so you should be scoring in the low 80s on the practice exams before taking the examination.

How many questions should I complete on the Series 66 practice exams before I take the exam?

You should plan on completing between 1,500 and 2,000 practice questions online prior to taking the exam.  If your scores are not within passing range at that point, you may need to complete more questions.

How soon after the Series 66 class should I take my exam?

If you come to class having read the material and completed at least 1,000 practice questions you should give yourself about one week to complete additional practice exams after the conclusion of the program before taking the Series 66 Examination.  If you have not read the material before coming to class you will need more time after class ends.

Should I expect to use the full time allotted on the Series 66 Exam?

Most students are able to finish the exam within the allotted time.

Should I read the Series 66 book before class?

Though it is not required to read the textbook before coming to class, doing so will make the class more beneficial and worthwhile. If you have not read the material prior to class you will still get value from class, but should plan to spend more time following class to fully prepare for your exam.

What is the usual study time for this exam for the typical Series 66 student?

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 lectures or receive private instruction one to two weeks prior to the Series 66 Examination. The total study time is typically four to six weeks.
