If you’re already working as a Municipal Securities Representative (Series 52), then you may be considering taking the Series 53 exam as a next step. Passing the MSRB Series 53, or Municipal Securities Principal Qualification Exam, qualifies you to oversee the municipal fund securities activities of a securities firm or bank dealer. You’re also qualified to supervise others working in several capacities related to municipal securities.
The Series 53 exam is 100 questions long and tests your knowledge of six main topics:
- Federal regulations
- General supervision
- Sales supervision
- Origination and syndication
Given this broad scope, you shouldn’t take the Series 53 exam lightly. How can you prepare for exam day?
