Series 3 PassMaster


IFM's PassMaster is a comprehensive online tutorial and testing program that helps NFA candidates customize and streamline study time and refine test-taking skills.  It augments IFM Series 3 Exam books or materials you may already own.

PassMaster consists of two distinct components — a Tutorial with test questions and answers and a Series 3 Exam Simulator for NFA candidates. It's provided as a six-month, single-user software license.

  1. The Tutorial is a module that lets a user test their knowledge and comprehension by sorting questions by exam topic area and level of difficulty. After responding to each question, the user receives instant feedback through an explanator answers and rationale as needed. By using the Tutorial, you will be able to test your comprehension of the concepts and calculations, identify and focus on your weakest areas and effectively study.
  2. The Exam Simulator closely resembles the actual Series 3 exam. It mimics the testing format of the exam and teaches you to identify trick questions and choose the BEST answer from the choices given.  It also teaches how to mark questions for review, and how to budget test-taking time within the allotted time. Results are scored like the actual exam, and you may take an unlimited number of timed tests.


PassMaster Features Include:

  • A 600+ question database, reinforced with new and more challenging questions
  • A tutorial divided according to the 10 subject areas covered in the Series 3 Exam
  • Detailed explanations accompanying each tutorial question
  • Exam simulations and screen layout modeled after the actual exam
  • Scoring that mirrors the actual exam


PassMaster is designed to enhance your overall learning experience and compliments the IFM's two Series 3 texts - the Futures and Options and the Guide to U.S. Futures Regulation.  It is not intended to be used as a stand-alone study tool except by individuals with a strong knowledge of futures and options or by those re-establishing an inactive NFA registration.
