Passing the Series 79 test is required for applicants of entry-level jobs as investment banking representatives. In addition to the Securities Industry Essentials (SIE) exam, this test is a necessary step to obtaining registration for the job. Both tests are administered by the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA).
The Series 79 is considered a lighter version of the Series 7 exam, but don't be fooled because it's deceptively difficult. Keep practicing to learn more about the Series 79 exam, including prerequisites, what you'll need to pass, and the breakdown of the test.
The Series 7 was required of all financial professionals, including those who wanted to become investment bankers prior to 2009. Investment banking is only a small portion of the Series 7 exam, most of which is more relevant to the functions and services of retail securities firms. An investment banking committee agreed on the major duties, job functions, and tasks associated with those working in the field after conducting a job analysis. This allowed for changes to be made.
The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) approved the new Series 79 exam in 2009. This test, which is also known as the Investment Banking Representative Qualification Examination, is commonly referred to as the Limited Representative Investment Bankers exam because it was designed for entry-level investment bankers.
There are specific areas of finance for which one will likely need the Series 79 license. FINRA Rule 1220(b)(5) defines the different types of representative categories, and section (i) Limited Representative-Investment Banking gives a thorough explanation of the areas.
The Series 79 test satisfies the Series 24 prerequisite as a representative exam. Since the test focuses on investment banking, the Series 24 General Securities Principal is limited to investment banking supervisory responsibilities if the candidate only has passed the Series 79 exam.
Testers generally need the Series 79 registration even if they already have the Series 7. This is one of the only cases where the Series 79 can be used as a prerequisite instead of the Series 7. Candidates may need the Series 79 to work in a number of key areas, including debt, equity, or mergers and acquisitions (M&A).
Companies have several options available to them when they need to raise money. Along with borrowing money from a financial institution, they may issue a debt or equity offering:
Debt or equity activities that may require a series 79 include:
Advisory services are a very important part of an investment banker's role, especially when it mergers and acquisitions. M&A refers to the consolidation of companies or assets. This can take place through a number of financial transactions. Some responsibilities that a Series 79 might be required for under this category can include:
Series 79 registration may not be required for professionals who have limited involvement in investment banking activities. There is some leeway, though, in some jobs in which new associates rotate among various business areas and departments for training purposes. These financial professionals are generally given a six-month grace period while they are training. For a complete guide to exemptions, look at FINRA Rule 1230.
A tutorial on the test is provided prior to taking it. The test is made up of 75 multiple choice questions and is completed on a personal computer. Each candidate’s test includes 10 additional questions that do not contribute to the candidate's score.
Candidates are given 150 minutes to complete the exam. The results are available immediately after the test as a pass or fail grade, with a breakdown of the candidate's performance in each section. Individuals need to answer 73% of the questions correctly for a passing score.
Candidates must be sponsored by a FINRA member to take the exam. Requirements for eligibility include taking the appropriate qualification examination. Individuals are required to pass both the Series 79 and SIE exams in order for test-takers to become registered.
You don't need to be take the Series 79 and the SIE exams at the same time.
There are three sections to the test. The 10 additional questions are scattered throughout at random and are not identified as such.
This is the largest section, taking up 49% of the test with 37 questions. It includes identifying the relevant data and knowing where to find it. For example, you may need to know what will be in proxy statements Form 14A or Form 4s for beneficial ownership of directors.
This section also goes into communicating with various departments and clients, using metrics and ratios, and analyzing trends to evaluate what you have found in the firm and sector data.
Candidates are also tested on their understanding of due diligence activities in this section, such as the regulatory requirement for the buy and sell sides.
This section has 20 questions, making up 27% of the test.
It deals with regulations for filing and registering securities. This includes forms, such as the prospectus, as well as rules, and required financial statements.
This section also covers the distribution of marketing materials and any associated rules.
With a total of 18 questions, this section is roughly 24% of the exam.
Some of the issues covered in this part of the test relate to buy-side and sell-side transactions, the fairness opinion, and SEC rules and regulations. It also tests a candidate's knowledge of tender offer regulations and financial restructuring.
The Series 79 and Series 7 are two different exams required by financial professionals who wish to obtain registration by FINRA. While the Series 7 is required by all securities representatives at the entry-level, the Series 79 test is a requirement for anyone who wants to work as an entry-level investment banker. The Series 79 test is 75 questions and takes 2.5 hours while the Series 7 is made up of 125 questions and takes three hours 45 minutes to complete.
The Series 79 test is more difficult than the Securities Industry Essentials exam. The SIE test is commonly considered an introductory test while the Series 79 involves concepts that may be more complex required by those who need a higher degree of skills in the investment banking industry.
There are a number of Series 79 prep courses you can take in order to prepare yourself for the exam. These courses provide you with study materials and practice exams that you can take. Many of them come at a cost, ranging between $200 to $300.
Financial professionals who wish to work as entry-level investment bankers are required to take (and pass) the Series 79 exam. Candidates must also pass the Securities Industry Essentials test in order to obtain registration, although it isn't required that the exams are taken together.
Anyone who wishes to perform certain duties in the financial industry must become a registered representative with the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority. In order to become registered, individuals must pass certain exams. The type of test depends on the type of position they seek. Professionals who want to become entry-level investment bankers must pass the Series 79 exam, along with another test—the Securities Industry Essentials exam. The Series 79 tests an individual's knowledge and skills in a number of areas, including debt and equity offerings, along with tender offers, mergers and acquisitions, new financing, and financial restructuring.
Last Spring, I had a chat with a journalist from one of our competitors who had been/is taking adviser qualifications.
I found her efforts admirable and this conversation really gave me food for thought.
In the next few months, I mulled over the idea of preparing for a professional certification myself and shopped around, because there are plenty of professional bodies and exams out there.
I wanted something that would interest me but also be useful at the same time. Therefore, it would have to be a certification in investment.
I first considered the CFA Level 1 as it was the investment qualification I had heard the most about.
However, the fees ($900 to $1,200) and the low pass rate (37%) had the effect of a repellent on me. I thought it was not reasonable to spend that much money for something that would in all likelihood end up being a complete disaster.
You may call me pessimistic, I will answer that I am just not self-delusional. If even financial professionals find it hard, my chances were close to none and the technical level is probably way above what a financial journalist needs.
I had a look at the other programmes listed on the CFA’s website and came across the Investment Management Certificate (IMC).
After further research, I had made my decision. This was the right certification for me in many regards.
It aims to provide the foundations in investment management and acquiring the baseline knowledge. It is all I need for now.
Also, while the CFA is not related at all to financial advice (from what I know), the IMC does look into this profession, albeit superficially (it is primarily aimed at investment managers rather than financial advisers). As a result, it still had some relevance to my job.
Last but not least, the IMC is relatively UK-focused in comparison to the CFA which is global in its nature. As I am not a complete stranger to the UK financial industry, that would play in my favour.
I have not completely abandoned the idea of sitting the CFA Level 1 one day. Life is still long (hopefully) and the IMC will enable me to test the water. If I cannot complete it, then the CFA Level 1 is completely out of reach.
As soon as I moved house to a more comfortable and quiet place, there was no excuse and I had to walk the talk.
At the time of writing, I have just passed the first unit ‘The Investment Environment’.
I will not deny it, it is a great relief, but I am only halfway there. I will need to successfully pass unit 2 ‘The Investment Practice’ to complete the certification.
In short, it is half time, I am leading 1-0, but there are 45 further minutes to play.
What was on the menu?
For those who are not familiar with the IMC, the first unit is structured in six chapters: 1- Financial markets and institutions, 2- Ethics and investment professionalism, 3- The regulation of financial markets and institutions, 4- Legal concepts, 5- Client advice, 6- Taxation in the UK.
‘The regulation of financial markets and institutions’ is arguably the most important chapter and is also by a far and wide the longest one. Of the 85 questions at the exam, between 25 to 35 will be allocated to this chapter.
Luckily, it was no terra incognita for me as it extensively deals with the role, status and powers of a very familiar organisation: The Financial Conduct Authority.
While working at Money Marketing certainly facilitated the study of this chapter, I still had to digest extensive extracts from the FCA Handbook.
The chapter also covers, albeit in a much more concise manner, the rest of the UK regulatory bodies.
Some were totally unknown to me such as the Panel of Takeovers and Mergers and the Competition and Markets Authority.
Others sounded familiar, but I did not know what their role was prior to my study. That would include the Prudential Regulation Authority (PRA) or The Financial Policy Committee.
The difficulty of this chapter was definitely its length and the importance of the information it contains. Almost every single line is crucial and there is no other way than learning by heart.
Some questions in the test simply test the knowledge of the regulatory principles but others require one to apply those same principles in case studies.
It means learning everything verbatim is not enough, you also have to understand what you are learning.
The second and fourth chapters also involve learning the material by heart, but they are thankfully much more succinct.
The first chapter was probably the most destabilising one to me. It smoothly starts with an introduction explaining how the financial system works, who the different actors are and how money circulates between them.
It then abruptly delves into a world that was completely unknown to me: investment exchanges and their infrastructures.
It required a lot of back and forth between Investopedia and the study book to understand what things such as central counterparties, market makers, clearing houses, SETS, SETSqx, bid-ask spread were.
Chapter 5 was the sunshine after the rain. It purely focuses on investment, which was the reason why I chose to study for the IMC in the first place.
It gives a description of the different categories (and sub-categories) of clients and asset classes.
There is also a limited (but interesting) financial advice piece. It includes among others fact find, establishing investment objectives and how to allocate a portfolio based on those objectives.
The chapter also looks into the asset allocation in different types of pension funds, general insurance and life insurance.
I really enjoyed the strategical dimension in this chapter. It was, at least to me, more stimulating than regulations and it also means that I did not need to review this chapter very often.
But against my initial expectations, chapter 6 is the one I preferred.
As it deals with UK taxation, I feared it would be incommensurably dull, but there was also this strategical dimension that made this chapter as stimulating as the previous one.
Obviously, you have first to learn all the UK taxes that are relevant in an investment context, but once it is done, that is when it becomes interesting.
First of all, you have to learn all the computations to calculate those taxes but also strategies to mitigate them.
Maybe tax planning was my true calling, who knows?
How I prepared
I had a lot of apprehension while preparing for this exam. Of course, I have sat exams in an academic context before, but professional exams were something new to me. I did not know what to expect.
Also, I had to deal with a time constraint. The study material is renewed every 1 December and I started in late August, which means I had to successfully pass the test for this unit 1 before 30 November. I was not too eager to start all over again almost from scratch and I am not sure my bank account would have liked me to pay the fee for a second attempt.
As a result, I followed the recommendations provided by CFA UK (the body organising the IMC) very scrupulously.
It advises at least 100 hours of study for unit 1. Since I am not a finance professional, I knew I would need more.
Therefore, I aimed for 100 hours just for what I called the “initial phase”, which was about practicing the study book five times and writing down things I had trouble memorising. It’s time consuming, but I find it makes it easier to process information.
It is very tempting to read passively, it happens instinctively. But writing (especially in your own words) forces you to actively engage with the content.
After an initial skim read of the study book, I had a rough of idea of the length and complexity of each subchapter.
I then allocated those 100 hours for this “initial phase” between late August to 28 October. The point was to ensure I would have two weeks left before the test to focus on my weaknesses.
On 28 October, the result was below the requirement threshold. While the recommendation is that you should score at least 75% at the mock exams, I only got 71% at the mock test I took immediately after completing this so-called initial phase.
But it was a good opportunity to identify my areas of weakness and the two final weeks were dedicated to remediate to those shortcomings.
I read over and over all the subchapters I had not well assimilated and practised the mock exams again and again until I scored above 90%. In total, I have spent around 150 hours to prepare for this exam.
That was sufficient this time around.
It was an interesting experience and I feel relieved my efforts bore fruit. I am not getting complacent though. I know I have only completed the easiest unit of a relatively “beginner-friendly” certification.
I have learnt plenty of things, some of which will, I hope, be useful in my work.
It also answered some questions I had been asking myself for a while. For example, I did not know much about the UK regulatory bodies beyond the FCA.
I guess I also now have a vague idea of what advising clients on investment requires and how to structure their portfolio (I am not saying I would know how to do it, I just roughly know how those things work).
The most immediate benefit I gained from this unit is a solid overview of the UK tax system. With the upcoming Autumn Statement, I hope to be able to make good use of what I have just learnt.
However, I do wonder what I will remember of it in say six month’s time. This is especially true of the contents that had no relevance or link to what I do in my everyday (all the things related to investment exchanges for example).
But I suppose, even pros do not retain everything they have learnt while studying for their certifications.
As I have not had any free evenings over the past few months, I will provide myself a break until December. Although I must say, it already feels strange not having to study after work. It just does not feel normal.
I look forward to start learning for unit 2. From the few I could see, it will be much more mathematical than unit 1. I hope time has not eroded my numeracy skills too much (I used to be an accountant a while ago).
Hopefully, this Weekend Essay will have a part II in a couple of months.
The recent test questions that hurt religious sentiments and demeaned women and one writer are unacceptable, said civil-society members, demanding an end to such "anarchy" in the education system.
The questions were prepared for HSC and equivalent examinations.
In a joint statement, signed by 24 eminent citizens, they said a universal, secular and science-based education system has not been established even after 50 years of independence, rather a regressive system has been set up.
People are now talking about whether teachers have the skills to prepare creative questions. "Both teachers and students need to acquire creative skills," they observed.
Pointing to the recent discussions on question papers, they said it is high time to think about the whole education system, not just the competency of those who prepare questions. "The demand of dropping Charles Darwin's evolution theory from the curriculum has also concerned us. This will hinder science study and free thinking. It will push the country backwards, towards communalism," reads the statement.
Among others, the signatories are Pankaj Bhattacharya, president of Oikya NAP; Advocate Sultana Kamal, former adviser to the caretaker government; Ramendu Majumdar, praesidium member of Sammilita Samajik Andolon; Rasheda K Choudhury, former adviser to the caretaker government; Prof Syed Anwar Husain of Dhaka University; and Dr Sarwar Ali, trustee of Liberation War Museum.

As a licensed Professional Engineer, or PE, you can expect many more benefits when compared to other engineers; most employers offer higher salaries and greater opportunities for advancement to PE's. Only PE's can consult in private practice, and seal company documents to be sent to the government. PEs also have more credibility as expert witnesses in court than most engineers.
Steps in obtaining a PE license:
During your senior year you should take the Fundamentals of Engineering (FE) exam, which is required prior to sitting for the Professional Engineers (PE) Exam. Some requirements vary by state.
The National Council of Examiners Administers Both Exams for Engineering and Surveying
Engineering students at Michigan Tech are encouraged to take and pass the FE examination during their last semester in college, or the first year after graduation. There will never be a time when you are better prepared to pass it than near graduation.
The examination is offered in April and October each year. Students must visit http://ncees.org/exams/ to register for the test and pay the $155.00 fee. The registration deadline is approximately two months before the test.
FE test Waiver
The FE Exam may be waived for those who have earned a BS in engineering and a PhD in engineering. See the NCEES web site for details.
All of the companies on this list represent good options for getting life insurance without a medical exam. All are A+ rated or better for financial strength and have received fewer complaints than expected when averaged over a three-year period. If you don’t need more than $3 million in coverage and are 50 or younger, any company on this list could be a good fit. But if you’re over 50 and looking for a death benefit of more than $1 million, you can rule out Nationwide. If you’re over 60, your only option for high-coverage no-medical-exam life insurance is Penn Mutual. And regardless of your age, Penn Mutual is your only option if you need a death benefit greater than $5 million and don’t want to take an exam.
If you’re looking for term coverage, try Penn Mutual or Pacific Life; for dividends, Penn Mutual or Guardian. If you want free living benefits, look to Nationwide. And if you’d like a wellness plan with your life insurance, John Hancock delivers.
A number of companies offer life insurance policies without requiring a medical exam, but you’ll generally be eligible for the lowest premiums with those that ask thorough health questions on the application.
Most any type of policy is eligible for no-exam underwriting. It used to be that if you wanted to skip the exam, only low-coverage insurance policies were available to you. These are still available and sold as burial or funeral insurance, or guaranteed-issue policies. But now, insurers have a number of sophisticated means by which to collect health and other information, so they don’t need to rely on your exam. Plus, it costs them money to administer it and time to receive and review the results. No-exam underwriting allows insurance carriers to issue life policies faster, which is often good for both the customer and the insurer.
So whether you’re looking for term or permanent coverage, a whole life policy or an indexed universal life policy, it’s available somewhere without a medical exam. But not all companies offer no-exam life insurance on all or even any of their policies, so you’ll need to do some research to find one that does. (The companies in the list above are an excellent start.) The one caveat is that not everyone is eligible for no-exam underwriting. If you have health issues that raise red flags for the insurance company, you may be required to undergo a medical screening to complete your application.
Yes, if it's a policy with a cash value. No-exam life insurance policies are just like regular life insurance policies. The only difference is that a medical screening is not required during the application process. Once approved, the policy functions just as it would had you taken an exam. So if you’ve purchased a permanent life insurance policy that builds a cash value, that cash value will be available to you, subject to any surrender period or other standard policy conditions.
Choosing the best life insurance policy for you depends on your life insurance needs. How much coverage do you need? (Ideally, you’ll get enough to pay off your debts and replace your income, at the very least.) How long do you need it for? Your needs may change once your kids are grown and your home is paid off, for instance. The next question to ask is, how much premium can you afford?
The answers to these questions will help you narrow down whether you need term or permanent life insurance coverage. Term life insurance is designed to last for a specific number of years, such as 30, and then expire. Permanent life insurance is designed to last your entire lifetime, and is therefore more expensive than term. You may also want to combine term and permanent policies to have a higher-coverage term policy during your working years or while you’re raising a family, and then a lower-coverage permanent policy that will kick in once the term coverage expires.
Term policies let you choose the length of the term (a 40-year term is the longest we’ve seen), and often provide the option to convert your term coverage to permanent. Permanent policies have a cash value, which may be accessed via withdrawals and loans.
Once you’ve figured out your budget and the general type of coverage you need, you should begin to get quotes from financially stable companies with track records of good customer satisfaction.
If you want a no-exam life insurance policy, it may be helpful to know that most of the 91 companies we reviewed offer some sort of policy that doesn’t require an exam. You’re best off first finding a good company (or a few you like), and then seeing what kind of policy you can get without an exam. This review and our review of the best life insurance companies of 2022 are both good places to start. And be sure to compare multiple quotes for no-exam life insurance because some policies are cheaper than others (depending on the type of no-exam underwriting used).
In order to compile our list of the best no-medical-exam life insurance companies, we developed a comprehensive life insurance methodology. We started off by researching what consumers want from life insurance companies, and for that, we looked to third-party consumer studies, including J.D. Power’s 2021 U.S. Life Insurance New Business Study and the 2021 Insurance Barometer Study, by Life Happens and LIMRA.
With those findings in mind, we gathered more than 50 data points on 91 life insurance companies, including ratings for financial strength, customer satisfaction, and customer complaints, as well as information about years in business, online tools, no-exam options, dividends, maximum issue ages, and available riders.
Our review process gave preference to companies with solid financials, few customer complaints, high no-exam coverage amounts available, high-issue ages for no-exam coverage, and a broad product portfolio. Companies received ratings boosts for online resources, including online quotes and live chat, and included living benefit riders. We ranked each company according to the following categories and weights.
To finalize our list, we compared individual offerings between top companies by considering ratings from third parties such as AM Best and J.D. Power, and delving deeper into product specifics—including cost and the availability of dividends. We used this research to determine the best no-medical-exam life insurance companies.
NATIONAL HARBOR, Md.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The Cybersecurity Assessor and Instructor Certification Organization (CAICO) today announced the formal launch of the Certified CMMC Professional (CCP) test that is now available to qualified candidates within the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) Ecosystem. The CCP examination verifies a candidate’s knowledge of the Department of Defense (DoD) CMMC framework and the roles and responsibilities of various positions within it. This is a key milestone for the program, as having trained and certified assessors ready to support Certified Third-Party Assessment Organizations (C3PAOs) is paramount for the successful scaling of assessments across the Defense Industrial Base (DIB).
“The CCP test represents the foundation of an individual’s journey to becoming a CMMC Assessor or Instructor and can open a wide variety of career opportunities,” said Kyle Gingrich, the CAICO’s Interim Executive Director. “CCPs, bringing their industry knowledge and expertise, are like apprentices who are continuing to build upon their prior experience with new CMMC skills and knowledge. They learn as they go— not only through training and exams, but also through hands-on experience in the field.”
The beta test program for the CCP test was conducted from August through September of this year. The CCP beta test enabled the CAICO to gather the qualitative and quantitative data required to assess how test items were performing so that development could appropriately refine and enhance the test to ensure it validates the knowledge a CCP is expected to demonstrate.
“With the launch of the official CCP exam,” Gingrich noted, “we are validating that those individuals who achieve the CCP certification have a standard and consistent working knowledge of CMMC as a whole and how it is implemented in the context of assessments.”
CMMC certification exams are not publicly available. To gain access to the test registration process requires successfully completing CCP training through a CAICO-approved Licensed Training Provider (LTP), which are organizations that deliver formal CMMC professional training. Individuals seeking CCP training to pursue their certification can select an LTP through the Cyber AB’s Marketplace. More information on the qualifications and timelines for CCP and CCA certifications can be found on the Cyber AB’s Assessing and Certification page.
To find out more about the CCP test itself, the CCP Blueprint can be found on the Cyber AB’s website at www.cyberab.org.
About The Cybersecurity Assessor and Instructor Certification Organization
The Cybersecurity Assessor and Instructor Certification Organization (CAICO) is the dedicated CMMC entity facilitating the training, examination, and professional certification for individuals within the CMMC Ecosystem. The CAICO is a wholly owned subsidiary of the CMMC Accreditation Body, Inc. and operates as a nonprofit organization with federal tax-exempt status.
BTS member Suga made waves on the internet after his name appeared in one of the questions of the Philippines bar examination.
On Sunday, the second day of the professional licensure examination for lawyers in the country, the 29-year-old rapper's real name, Min Yoongi, and his group were featured in question number 6 of the commercial law exam, Interkasyon reported.
"Yoongi, a director of BTS Corp. PH, bought substantial shares of its major supplier, Hybe, Inc. When Hybe, Inc.'s contracts were taken up by the BTS Corp. PH Board, Yoongi not only voted for their approval but influenced other directors to do so. Later, the Hybe, Inc. contracts turned out to be disadvantageous to BTS Corp. PH and caused it substantial losses," the question read, according to the outlet.
It continued, "Discuss the action/s that may be pursued against Yoongi under the Revised Corporation Code. Explain briefly."
University of Santo Tomas law professor Kenneth Manuel took to Twitter to share a screenshot of the question, which has now garnered a total of over 24,000 likes.
"I feel na tama talaga training ko sa mga students ko in making K-pop idols the characters in my exams. [I feel that it was right to train my students by making K-pop idols the characters in my exams]," Manuel tweeted.
BTS fans, also known as Army, expressed their excitement over Suga's surprise appearance in the exam.
"Still trying to wrap my head [around] it. It's not just an test from school. It's a BAR EXAM. A country's bar exam. Min Yoongi's impact lol," one Twitter user wrote.
"[Army] being in high positions and putting BTS' name in the last places you would expect will never stop being funny. Like imagine [you are] an Army taking the PH bar and you get to this question... I would think I was hallucinating like no way," another fan wrote.
Some fans recalled a 2014 incident at a fan event when a fan jokingly threatened to sue Suga for being attractive.
"The 'I will sue you Min Yoongi' has escalated to a whole new level," one fan tweeted, while another wrote, "There is literally no way the person who wrote this isn't so deep in Army lore that they know [sic] about 'I will sue you Min Yoongi.' No way."
"Case dismissed on account of Yoongi's incandescent smile having turned everyone present at the proceedings to mush," a third user joked.
Over 9,000 law school graduates in the Philippines are taking what has been regarded by some as among the hardest bar examinations in the world, with the third and final day commencing on Wednesday and Sunday, respectively, in 14 onsite examination centers across the country.
Meanwhile, the seven BTS members, Suga, RM, J-Hope, Jin, Jungkook, Jimin and V, are on hiatus as a group. They recently announced that they will enlist in South Korea's military as required by law, ending months of public debate about whether the group qualified for an exemption to mandatory conscription.
According to the group's label, BigHit Music, the members are expected to make a comeback as a group in 2025 after finishing their military service.
