Reach out to Varsity Tutors if you are someone who can benefit from taking a Columbus SIE course. Taking the Securities Industry Essentials exam is the first step towards working in the securities industry. Prospective securities industry professionals can study in a class or with a private tutor to prepare for this exam. Whether you studied at Ohio State University, Capital University, or another university in the area, you can benefit from additional instruction.
What does the SIE exam cover?
The SIE exam has 75 questions. You will have one hour and 45 minutes to complete them. The questions will be presented in a multiple-choice format, and you will need to get 70 percent of the questions correct in order to pass the exam.
The exam covers fundamentals that professionals need to know in order to work in the industry. For example, when taking a Columbus SIE course, you can learn about the structure of the securities exchange market, types of products and their risks, and industry practices that are prohibited by law.
Other topics that may be covered in your course are the types of markets, business economic factors, and international economic factors. It is also important to learn about the structure of the test so that you are prepared for it. Your class instructor or private tutor can administer practice tests that have time limits similar to the actual SIE exam. This way, you can practice pacing yourself under time pressure.
How can I benefit from taking a Columbus SIE prep course?
There are two options for students preparing for the SIE exam. You can take one of our online classes, or you can sign up for private mentoring. Regardless of which one you choose, you will get accurate information and benefit from expert instruction. Let's go over some of the benefits of each type of test preparation.
Taking a Columbus SIE class will give you an opportunity to study in a collaborative environment. Classes are administered online, so you can take them at home, in your school's library, or at your office. You won't need to spend time commuting through traffic in order to attend class, but you will still get the benefits of learning with a group. You can use our Live Learning Platform to interact with the class instructor and the other students in real time through video chat. All you will need is a stable internet connection.
During class, you can ask questions and benefit from the explanations given in response to questions asked by other students as well. The instructor can lead discussions where students can share perspectives and exchange information. This can help you gain new insights into topics you have learned previously. The teacher might also break up the class into smaller groups in order to assign smaller projects to each one.
Taking a Columbus SIE class is also a great way to review what you learned in school. Reviewing information can help you remember it better, which can be useful when test day arrives. When you attend a class, you can be secure in the knowledge that the instructor will teach a comprehensive curriculum that can address any gaps in your knowledge. Studying with other like-minded people who are also preparing for a career in the securities industry can increase your motivation to succeed.
The class instructor can give you crucial test-taking advice, such as how to avoid spending too much time on a single question. If you feel as if you need some additional help on specific topics, such as equity securities or debt instruments, you can request private time with your class instructor. Classes start every month, so you won't have to wait long to enroll. You can find a class that works best for your schedule, regardless of whether you are free on weekdays or only on weekends.
