Series 24 Tutoring FAQ
Series 24 is a license and exam, which is also called the General Securities Principal Exam. It was given this name because individuals who pass the exam are able to go on and act as supervisors and branch managers at a broker-dealer. In order to take the Series 24 Exam, a financial professional must first hold a pre-requisite license. This can be achieved by completing another Series exam, such as the Series 7, 17, 37, 38, 57, 62, 79, or 82. If you already have one of these licenses and are ready to take the Series 24 Exam, you should begin the preparation process by familiarizing yourself with the format and content of the test.
First, it's important to know that the test has 150 multiple-choice questions, which a test-taker must complete within a three-hour and forty-five-minute time limit. At least 70% of these questions must be answered correctly to pass the exam and receive a Series 24 license. The content of the exam is meant to grade a financial professional's ability to successfully carry out the job functions of a securities principal. Therefore, the topics on the exam you should expect to see questions on include things like corporate securities, real investment trusts, trading customer accounts, and regulatory guidelines.
Given the importance of passing the Series 24 Exam, individuals getting ready to take it often seek professional help with their preparation process. One of the best ways to get this help is by working with a private Series 24 tutor. Varsity Tutors can help you get started with this by connecting you to an expert on the Series 24 Exam who is able to work with you.
