CPYB exam

Asking if anyone has taken this exam, and if so maybe some gauge of difficulty... looks like I'll be taking it in about two weeks and wondered how much prep will be required. For example, the online prep I found says to 'know who the builders are, know where they are located,' how many yards should I expect to have to know? I have a Series 7/66 and can't imagine it would be harder than that, but want to be prepared.

As a series 7/63 person myself...was told then that it was the most comprehensive/difficult test out there, couple of lawyers in our group even said the VA Bar was easier.

The CPYB is no where near that.

Best of luck. Hope the market turns and you can use it.
