When I picked up 101 Ways to Score Higher on Your Series 7 Exam, I almost didn't take it seriously with that tacky title. But right away I liked how in chapter one it tells you how to study. Studying for regular tests is not the same technique as studying for this test and it was nice to hear how to tackle this particular test from a professional. Another thing that I thought was important was the section on what to expect. Knowing the structure of the test is crucial. As a former educator, I taught students how to master the state test and one of the things that I used to preach to my students was to familiarize yourself with how the test looks and works in order to beat it. So it was a relief to see the section on what to expect.

Probably not important but the tone of the book was mildly annoying. It read like a bad infomercial: "Read this book and you'll know everything you need to on test day!" I guess there's no harm in selling yourself but I already have the book, just cut out the horn blowing and give me the information that I need!

With that said, the book actually did do a good job of breaking down everything a series 7 test taker would need to know (which is, unfortunately, a lot!) It also did a good job of explaining the need for the test, the test itself and even some aspects of actually becoming a registered representative. The practice test at the back of the book is key and I was glad to see it there. Nothing says test suicide like going in cold on exam day! It would have been nice to have one or two more practice tests but given their length I guess that would be difficult. Overall, this book got the job done.

I read this book till the derivative section, and I could not stand it any more. The option strategies explanation is simply WRONG, e.g., protective put(the books long stock and short put) and put spread motivation(books says expect underlying not move).

Stay clear of this book if you expect to deal with derivatives.

"101 Ways to Score Higher on Your Series 7 Exam: What You Need to Know Explained Simply" helps readers wade through the large amount of complicated material a person needs to review before taking the financial certification test known as the Series 7, or General Securities Registered Representative, Exam.
I particularly appreciated the bold-faced terms and boxed tips throughout the book that offered suggestions for how to score higher and avoid common mistakes on test, as well as techniques to help save time and study more efficiently. And, since I had no prior knowledge of the Series 7 Exam, the book also was helpful in its general explanation of the test and why it is an important way to protect investors from incompetent representatives.
The book, by Claire Bradley, includes a valuable full practice test to prepare readers for the real examination, and also adds helpful career advice from professionals so readers can prepare for their own futures as registered representatives, giving clients guidance for investment decisions within laws and ethical rules.

Format: Paperback
Rating: 5 stars
In today's complex world, certification of one form or another is virtually mandatory for almost any position requiring specialized knowledge. Gaining certification often involves revisiting the fundamental principles of a field of study and successfully completing an exam to demonstrate one's competency and aptitude in the field. The value of studying and preparing appropriately to successfully complete an exam cannot be underscored. Unfortunately for some, the time or expense of returning to school or going to a specialized exam preparation school is prohibitive and they must find an alternative method to gain the certification they desire.
If you are pursuing your Series 7 license, 101 Ways to Score Higher on Your Series 7 Exam: What You Need to Know Explained Simply, will help you to achieve your goal. This book, with it's full Series 7 practice test, will reacquaint you with the basic principles and terminology of the field and help you identify your strengths and weaknesses in the different areas the test will cover. The author, Claire Bradley, has done a wonderful job organizing the material in a simple and intelligible fashion. Her presentation of the various sections the test will cover is clear, her definitions are concise and she provides seriously useful information in the tips she highlights in each section. In fact, the book provides information with such clarity that I would even recommend it for someone who is simply trying to understand the jargon and concepts involved in the securities industry, but might have no desire to pursue a career in the field. I also appreciated the fact that the style of the book was clean; the author doesn't digress into useless factoids or try to be a college textbook.

Do not rely on this book as your only resource for the exam. There is much more depth in reality than this book has to offer. I agree with another reviewer that the review questions in this book were far too easy. The content glossed over many topics that should be covered in greater detail; I didn't realize this until I picked up a practice exam (from another source) and saw that the questions were nowhere in comparison to what I read. The only good part about this book is that it contains 260 practice questions (to simulate a full-length exam). However, the answer key is numbered incorrectly in the second half, so in the end I found this book to be a complete waste of time.
