Mastery Exam (Online)

This exam is designed to closely replicate the true exam experience, both in terms of the degree of difficulty and topical coverage. Validated as a test of preparedness, this exam may be taken only once and provides a score with diagnostic feedback. This exam has a similar weighting and format as the series exams and is timed, scored, and covers a broad range of general knowledge to help you perform your best. It is a sound indicator of how you will perform on your actual series exam. The better you perform on this exam, the more likely you are to pass your actual exam.

The Kaplan program helped me pass the Series 7, Series 66 and Life and Health Insurance exams by providing online lectures, immediate feedback on topical questions along with audio review. By utilizing each of these study tools, I was well prepared and passed these difficult exams.  I have recommended this program to others who have gone on to pass their exams.”
