- Read the study material. I recommend the Series 7 manual and practice exams from Securities Training Corp. at http://stcusa.com
- Plan to spend at least 20 hours a week for 4 to 6 weeks absorbing and understanding this material. If devoting this much time is unappealing for you, you may want to reconsider a career in financial services.
- Take the practice exams. Score 85% or better on the final, closed-book quizzes. This should give you what Warren Buffett calls "a margin of safety" for passing the actual Series 7 test.
Best of luck! Gordon Mitchell Series 7 Tutor
