If you've ever wondered what makes the Center for Futures Education's Futures Broker Home Study Course the best Series 3 prep course on the market, here are five reasons:

1. It was written by a two-person team (from widely differing backgrounds) who have both taken the Series 3 exam, not by a panel of experts who have never taken the exam.

2. We re-take the exam periodically and update our material accordingly—even after 30 years.

3. Shortly after it was written, it was read by our secretary who had no special training in this field and a high school education only. In areas where she had problems, we rewrote the material so it was clear to her.

4. When customers call in with questions about the material, we rewrite the material on which they had questions until it is clear.

5. We used the Futures Broker Home Study Course as a textbook to teach German students (who had English as a second language) to pass the Series 3 exam. When something wasn't clear to them, we rewrote it until it was clear.
