On June 9, 1999, the Board filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission a proposed rule change to revise the test specifications and the study outline for the Boards Municipal Securities Representative Qualification Examination (Test Series 52). The Board requested that the Commission delay the effectiveness of the revised test specifications and study outline until August 1, 1999. The examination will remain a three-hour 100 question examination administered by NASD Regulation, Inc. using the PROCTOR system.
The study outline was revised to delete topics that are no longer relevant and to add or revise topics that reflect additions to or changes in practices, products and Board rules since the outline was last revised. The revised outline also provides for the inclusion of new Board rules as they are promulgated. You may view the revised study outline here.
