    • Hi, my name is Tina Leahy and I’m the founder and Chief Instructor of Training Consultants. I’ve been helping people pass their qualification exams for over 30 years. The purpose of this video is to help you understand what the Series 6 is all about and to talk to you about the best way to prepare for your exam. Our goal at Training Consultants is to provide you with the best exam preparation experience available. And, of course, your preparation starts with a good understanding of how the exam is structured. So let’s get started!
    • The Series 6 is the Investment Company Products/Variable Contracts Representative Exam. It was developed by the NASD, which is now called FINRA, and qualifies you to apply for registration with FINRA as a Limited Representative. This license is for people who wish to conduct business in mutual funds, variable annuities, and other variable contracts issued by an insurance company.
    • The first thing you need to know is that you need to be sponsored by a broker/ dealer to take the exam. No Sponsor—No Test. And that’s the bottom line!
    • You also need to know that when you take and pass the Series 6 you will be required to pass the Series 63 exam to be properly registered as an agent at the state level.
    • Now let’s talk about the structure of the exam. The Series 6 exam consists of 105 multiple choice questions. The exam is administered in a single session and you are allowed 2 hours and 15 minutes to complete your exam. You must score 70% or better to pass.
    • There are two different types of questions you will encounter on your exam. The first is a standard multiple choice question with A, B, C, D answer options.
    • The second type is the multiple of a multiple. These questions include roman numerals in addition to the A, B, C, D choices.
    • Our products use these types of questions exclusively to give you a solid feel of the real exam. The functionality of our exam software also mirrors that of the real testing interface because the more familiar you are with these items, the better you will perform on test day.
    • Now that we have the general structure out of the way, let’s talk about the content of the Series 6. The Series 6 is broken into 6 main subject areas, but 35% of the questions are related to Investment Companies. If you want to do well on this exam and you commit to our study program, you will be able to pass your exam comfortably, in the 80’s, on your first attempt. We have successfully trained thousands of candidates for the Series 6 exam, so I am confident that we can do the same for you.
    • Now that you have an understanding of the structure and content of the Series 6, let’s talk about the right way to approach preparing for your exam.
    • You might have heard that a good way to prepare is to memorize question answers and just test, test, test. You can’t do that and here’s why! Your exam is drawn from a live bank of questions that are constantly updated and changed. And so the only way you can be successful on your exam is to have a good understanding of the concepts and definitions that you will be tested on. Our training solutions focus on knowledge and preparation, not gimmicks and memorization.
    • So that’s what you need to know about the test. Now, I want to tell you about our Series 6 Online Course. With our course, you get a complete package including a personalized study plan, multimedia lectures, a book, and practice questions. These components all work together: You’ll see the presentation, You’ll hear the lecture, and you’ll take notes and complete exercises in your study book. I will personally walk you through the entire program. It really is like private tutoring.
    • We at Training Consultants look forward to helping you get through this important step in your career. So, the only thing left for you to do is to go to and get started! See ya there!

From starting your studies to passing the exam, it is our goal to provide the best material and delivery possible. No one supports you like Training Consultants!
I PASSED WITH A 72% ! If it were not for the online exam software, I wouldn't have done it. It made all the difference. I will recommend this to everyone I know!! See you for the 66! :-)
I just wanted to say thank you for your amazing material!!! I passed my Series 66 tonight with an 87!!!!! I failed the exam on a few occasions with another vendor and no doubt your material made the difference.
Thank you. I had been twice through another vendor’s program. A fellow employee recommended your class and I was ready to try anything. I took the test on Saturday, and I "Passed."
Hi Tina, I passed my Series 7 exam yesterday with 94%.
I wanted to thank Training Consultants for assisting me in passing my Series 7 as I used two other training materials and this was by far the best!
Before your class, I was having difficulty in not getting confused so all of your hints are VERY important (I kept hearing your voice in my head). On to the Series 66!
Tina's lectures made it easy to understand the materials in the books. If I am ever asked to recommend a study program for any "series" type of licensing, I would recommend none other than Training Consultants
I wanted to let you know that I passed with 81!!!! Words cannot explain how relieved and happy I feel to put this behind me. Thank you, thank you, and thank you!
The options chapters turned out to be my favorite chapters (and I received 86-90% score on that section) and if you would have asked me before your study program I would have told you I was afraid of options!
I received an 87! I didn't want to just pass. I really wanted to do well. The material was excellent! I felt entirely prepared. And quite honestly, I'm amazed at how similar the exam was to the practice material
Tina has devised the simplest method for options calculations, and her “home base chart” relieves any anxiety going into the test, because you are confident that the calculations are going to be correct.
Thank you Tina I got an 84 on my exam yesterday. I have never been so sure and comfortable about my answers on a big exam like this.
I did receive the promotion I was expecting. Your class and the study materials helped more than you can imagine.
