- The Futures Broker Home Study Course has 8
sections, each covering one of the topics in the National Futures Association's study outline for the National Commodity
Futures Exam (Series 3). It was written by a two-person team (from widely differing backgrounds) each of whom has
taken the Series 3 exam, not by a panel of experts who have never taken the
- Improved and updated as needed throughout 30 years of use. We've taken pointers from secretaries, students with English as a second language, and customers who called with questions. These avid students helped us know where our materials needed to be clarified. The bottom line is, the course is clearly written.
- The Quizzes are interactive, giving you immediate feedback with the correct answers and an explanation. 5 accesses per quiz.
- 2 interactive Final Exams are patterned after the NCFE (National
Commodity Futures Exam). After completing a final exam, a list of those questions you missed is presented with your final score. You may choose questions from this list to see the original question, the answer you supplied, the correct answer, and an explanation. 10 accesses combined for the 2 final exams.
