Trying to pass your Series 65 Exam? Pass The 65 is written with the reader always in mind. This Series 65 exam study guide uses Plain English and concise explanations as it ticks off the items mentioned on the NASAA Series 65 exam outline point-by-point. Notice that there are four chapters in our study material, which correspond to the four sections of the NASAA Series 65 Exam outline. We try to keep things as easy as possible in our study guides because the exam itself is anything but. To reduce your frustration in obtaining your Series 65 license, we try to make sure each sample question in our Pass The 65 Online Practice Question Bank is explained within this textbook. In fact, we encourage you to use this study guide while working through the Series 65 sample questions. When you encounter a tough practice question, you can quickly and easily look it up in this textbook in order to come away from the question with a deeper understanding of the topics involved. Remember that the Series 65 license exam is not a memorization test but, rather, a "competency exam," as NASAA explains in their exam FAQ. Too many Series 65 exam candidates go to the testing center expecting to simply recognize a few vocabulary terms when, in fact, passing your test requires you to work with the information at a much deeper level. That's why we explain things in a way you'll both understand and remember at the testing center. It takes more work on our end, but we feel our job is to make things easier on your end. We also take what you learn in the pages of this Series 65 exam study guide to a higher level by presenting you with well over 1,000 challenging questions in our test bank. However, our sample questions are not designed to merely trick you--which most people find discouraging and confusing at best. Rather, our Series 65 sample questions are designed to help you learn the information as you improve your ability to eliminate the incorrect answer choices you will see when taking the Series 65 exam. Be sure to keep a notebook filled with all that you learn from working the questions and reading the helpful explanations that follow. For an extra edge, try writing your own variations of practice questions in this same notebook, something our tutoring clients have found extremely helpful. Pass the 65(c) is your guide to a passing score on the Series 65 exam. This textbook is at the same time in-depth and easy to read. We don't skimp on the details found on the NASAA outline. Rather, we skimp on the filler found in many of the more tedious license exam manuals on the market. To give yourself an edge on this difficult license exam buy this book and then go to www.examzone.com to purchase the practice questions and other Series 65 study materials. This test is not easy. The best time to get started is . . . now."

FINRA's Series 24 exam is one of the most detailed tests people in your industry ever take. That's why a Series 24 textbook has to do more than copy-and-paste from regulatory websites or deliver endless bullet points for you to memorize. Anyone can list what you need to know. This is the only book that also shows you why you need to know it and how it all fits together. Only when you understand the key differences between underwriting and trading securities, for example, are you ready for the barrage of vocabulary terms your exam will try to use against you on these topics. We focus on you, the reader, and do what we can to make your study process as logical and understandable as possible. Our Plain English, reader-centered approach saves you time and frustration. To put it all together, though, be sure to work through our practice questions online. Only by applying what you learn in this textbook to the challenging practice questions will you be ready to schedule your exam. And, don't forget to take our "Go No Go" exams before picking a test date. However you approach this challenge, be sure to give yourself plenty of time and avoid cutting corners. There are no inessential pages in this textbook; there are no inessential practice questions in our ExamCram Online test bank. So, please, follow the study schedule. Read the textbook carefully and thoroughly. And then, plan on working with practice questions for at least two weeks. The Series 24 exam is not an easy test, but this textbook and other study materials make it as easy as possible. Let's jump into the first chapter and try not to let too many days go by between sessions. Okay? Outstanding. Let's get started

A PBS Great American Read Top 100 Pick Harper Lee's Pulitzer Prize-winning masterwork of honor and injustice in the deep South—and the heroism of one man in the face of blind and violent hatred One of the best-loved stories of all time, To Kill a Mockingbird has been translated into more than forty languages, sold more than forty million copies worldwide, served as the basis for an enormously popular motion picture, and was voted one of the best novels of the twentieth century by librarians across the country. A gripping, heart-wrenching, and wholly remarkable tale of coming-of-age in a South poisoned by virulent prejudice, it views a world of great beauty and savage inequities through the eyes of a young girl, as her father—a crusading local lawyer—risks everything to defend a black man unjustly accused of a terrible crime.

Narrated by a fifteen-year-old autistic savant obsessed with Sherlock Holmes, this dazzling novel weaves together an old-fashioned mystery, a contemporary coming-of-age story, and a fascinating excursion into a mind incapable of processing emotions. Christopher John Francis Boone knows all the countries of the world and their capitals and every prime number up to 7,057. Although gifted with a superbly logical brain, Christopher is autistic. Everyday interactions and admonishments have little meaning for him. At fifteen, Christopher’s carefully constructed world falls apart when he finds his neighbour’s dog Wellington impaled on a garden fork, and he is initially blamed for the killing. Christopher decides that he will track down the real killer, and turns to his favourite fictional character, the impeccably logical Sherlock Holmes, for inspiration. But the investigation leads him down some unexpected paths and ultimately brings him face to face with the dissolution of his parents’ marriage. As Christopher tries to deal with the crisis within his own family, the narrative draws readers into the workings of Christopher’s mind. And herein lies the key to the brilliance of Mark Haddon’s choice of narrator: The most wrenching of emotional moments are chronicled by a boy who cannot fathom emotions. The effect is dazzling, making for one of the freshest debut in years: a comedy, a tearjerker, a mystery story, a novel of exceptional literary merit that is great fun to read.

Frantz Fanon was one of the twentieth century’s most important theorists of revolution, colonialism, and racial difference, and this, his masterwork, is a classic alongside Orientalism and The Autobiography of Malcolm X. The Wretched of the Earth is a brilliant analysis of the psychology of the colonized and their path to liberation. Bearing singular insight into the rage of colonized peoples and the role of violence in historical change, the book also incisively attacks postindependence disenfranchisement of the masses by the elite on one hand, and intertribal and interfaith animosities on the other. A veritable handbook of social reorganization for leaders of emerging nations, The Wretched of the Earth has had a major impact on civil rights, anticolonialism, and black-consciousness movements around the world. This new translation updates its language for a new generation of readers and its lessons are more vital now than ever.
