I took the series 7. Congrats on your job, I really enjoyed working for a brokerage. I was having trouble passing the practice exams until my uber-boss gave me this advice: Don't try to read through and master the material beforehand, then take the exams cold without referring to the texts. Maybe you might want to do that once or twice, just to become a little familiar with all the new information you have to learn. What you do is take the practice exams, and once you get to a question you just can't answer, look it up in the text. Don't feel bad you didn't know it, but be sure to learn what you look up. Do about 7-8 of the entire practice exams with this method, and you'll start to get passing grades. I studied for 3 months my way without ever passing once. After 2 weeks of studying his way, I was passing and passed the REAL exam on the first try.

I have my CA L&D(equivalent to group 1) Series 7 = Securities Rep. Series 24 = General Securites Principal Series 53 = Municipal Securities Principal and Series 63 = State reg and blue sky laws. Currently sturdying for the Series 55 = OTC trading principal. Series 7 is a tough exam. Study the option and regulation section. If you get books from Dearborn, do the practice test. Dearborn writes a lot of the questions for the NASD. By doing the questions, you will get the hang of how the questions are asked. Dearborn offer a 5 day prep class. I suggest you take it. However if you are a Finance major, you will not have a problem.
