Test Taking - Setting Aside Study Time

Setting Aside Study Time
One typically needs around 60 to 80 hours to prepare for the Series 3 exam. One's work and family schedule will determine how many hours per day one may allot to uninterrupted study time. Schedules permitting, try to make use of that time of day where one's strength of concentration and focus are best. Adhere as much as possible to any study schedule once it has been established. Avoid or minimize any and all distractions. With diligence, one should be able to sit for and pass the Series 3 exam in one month.

Here are four things you can do to help you focus:

  1. Make to-do lists that prioritize all assigned tasks according to their importance.
  2. Organize your schedule efficiently so that you save time wherever you can.
  3. Find the easiest means to get work done.
  4. Focus on the important details, even if it means ignoring less critical things.
You can also supplement designated study time by looking over your notes and other material wherever and whenever you find a spare 15 minutes or so. That means having your study materials with you at all times.

Empty classrooms and offices after-hours afford quiet study time. So, too, do libraries and airport lounges, if one is travelling.
