Final thoughts

You have completed the series 62 exam review available on Investopedia. This is only a portion of what you will need to know to for the test. The series 62 can be a challenging exam for many people. The sections relating to the secondary market and the market for corporate securities tend to be the most challenging for test takers. We recommend that you reread this section in your textbook two to three times. In addition you should review your notes carefully and take as many series 62 practice questions as you can. Most states will require that you also pass the series 63 exam in addition to your series 62 before you may conduct business with the investing public.
