The Foundation - Introduction

In building your foundation for the test, it is important to have a thorough understanding of the Blue Sky Laws, the USA and other acts. While the information covered by the Series 63 really is not too complicated, your study process will move along more smoothly if you have a deep understanding of where the information comes from, and WHY you are required to know it. It is easy to skip over this section, but it is very important that you not only read it, but also have a firm grasp of the origins of the USA.
