If you are close to becoming a securities industry professional, taking a Varsity Tutors Jacksonville SIE course will allow you to study with an instructor with expertise in this specific exam. The Securities Industry Essentials (SIE or Essentials) exam is one of the most important requirements that you must pass before being able to work in the securities business. The exam consists of 75 multiple choice questions that you must complete in 1 hour and 45 minutes. After passing the exam with a score of at least 70 percent, you must also take a more specific qualification exam for the area of business in which you will be working (Series 7, Series 52, Series 79, etc.). To take the SIE, you do not have to be associated with a member firm like you do to take the qualification exam. The SIE is the first step though, so passing it should be your first priority, and Varsity Tutors is here to help.
What are some topics that a Jacksonville SIE course can cover?
The SIE includes concepts that are fundamental to working in the industry. The Jacksonville SIE course will cover the important fundamentals, teaching you about types of products and their risks, the structure of the securities industry markets, prohibited activities, and business economic factors, just to name a few. You may have learned about these topics at the University of North Florida or at another local school, but having a more focused course geared specifically towards the SIE can give you the knowledge and confidence boost that you need.
What are some advantages of enrolling in the Jacksonville SIE class?
In addition to covering the specific topics for the exam, your Jacksonville SIE class may help you establish strong study habits that will aid in information retention. You can learn content for the exam while also learning new techniques on how to study. The class can teach test-taking skills that might help you work through questions more efficiently within the time limit. For example, this exam is multiple choice, so you can learn how to eliminate impossible or incorrect answers quickly to help narrow options down to lead you towards the correct answer.
Another benefit to the SIE course is the chance to study alongside other aspiring security industry professionals. During group activities, you will be exposed to other points of view. Class discussions can be valuable, as you can ask and answer questions to deepen your understanding. Being able to ask questions can help you understand a topic you may be struggling with, and answering questions that other students ask can help to solidify your knowledge and make it easier to remember and retrieve that information for a test. Teaching what you have learned can help your brain organize the material and pick out key pieces of information. That can be more effective than just studying material on your own by simply reading a textbook. Building your relationship with a network of people with similar career aspirations to you is an added bonus compared to studying alone. You can get the benefits of group study while also having the opportunity to request one-on-one time with your instructor outside of class for extra help.
The study skills you can develop, the targeted knowledge and expertise of your instructor, the personalized attention you can receive, and the relationships you can develop with your classmates are just a few of the many benefits of studying for the SIE with Varsity Tutors.
