The Series 22 exam is also commonly called the Direct Participation Programs Limited Representative Examination. As its name suggests, the test was designed to assess the competency of an individual applying for an entry-level position as a direct participation programs representative. Some of the fields an individual in this industry may cover are real estate, limited partnerships, and oil and gas. The exam covers skills directly relevant to the job, including topics like solicitation and the purchase and sale of limited partnerships, among others. It's also important to note that an individual must pass the Securities Industry Essentials exam before taking this test.
