If you’ve ever wondered what makes the Center for Futures Education’s Futures Broker Home Study Course the best Series 3 prep course on the market, here are five reasons:
- It was written by a two-person team (from widely differing backgrounds) who have both taken the Series 3 exam, not by a panel of experts who have never taken the exam.
- We re-take the exam periodically and update our material accordingly—even after 25 years.
- Shortly after it was written, it was read by our secretary who had no special training in this field and a high school education only. In areas where she had problems, we rewrote the material so it was clear to her.
- When customers call in with questions about the material, we rewrite the material on which they had questions until it is clear.
- We used the Futures Broker Home Study Course as a textbook to teach German students (who had English as a second language) to pass the Series 3 exam. When something wasn’t clear to them, we rewrote it until it was clear.
The CD has 800 questions to study for the Series 3 Exam! For complete answers and immediate feedback, this CD is great! It makes an excellent adjunct to the Futures Broker Home Study Course. Buy them together for this great package price!
