What we cover

FASEA Exam Prep IQ walks you through all of the FASEA prescribed exam topics (because you never really know what the exam will test).

  • All the FASEA prescribed exam subjects
  • Explained through case studies and examples
  • Exam style multiple choice quiz questions
  • Supported by detailed notes and workbook for further study


Getting Exam Ready

For existing advisers, you must pass the FASEA exam to maintain your status as a Financial Adviser. If you do not pass the exam by 31 December 2021, your existing work and experience will not be recognised and you will need to meet the criteria set for new entrants to the market.

The FASEA exam is not technical but tests your knowledge of how advisers need to provide advice and interact with the frameworks that apply. The FASEA Exam Prep IQ helps you short-cut your study by identifying the exam topics and the important take-outs that you must know.
