Title: Finance certification preparation and "teaching to the test" - the NASAD Series 7 General Securities Registered Representative examination
Author/Artist: Fehr, David
Date: 2007
Abstract/Description: This paper addresses two aspects of offering finance certification training programs at the university level. During the spring term 2006, Southern New Hampshire University offered (in conjunction with a large, diversified financial services company) a finance elective course to prepare students to sit for the NASD Series 7 General Securities Registered Representative Examination. Firstly, the paper provides the background on developing a specialized academic course working in cooperation with a corporate entity. Secondly, the paper explores the academic ramifications of delivering the course in a “teaching to the test” format instead of a more typical academic course delivery.

A revised version of this paper has since been published in the Journal of Economics and Finance Education. Please use this version in your citations.
