Varsity Tutors offers multiple approaches to Miami SIE preparation for any students looking to pass the SIE Exam and become professionals in the securities industry. If you are looking to register with a FINRA member firm or engage in the securities business in other ways, you are required to pass the Securities Industry Essentials Exam, commonly referred to as the SIE, as well as an additional qualification exam that is appropriate for your specific type of business. One great way to reach for your goals and give yourself a better chance to perform well on the SIE is by taking part in additional expert instruction outside of your formal classroom learning experience. Whether you would be better off participating in a Miami SIE prep course or working privately with a personal instructor, we have an option to fit your learning style.
What topics and skills will be covered by Miami SIE prep?
The SIE covers a wide variety of topics, from basic types of markets and economic factors to the details of hedge funds, employee conduct, and prohibited activities. No matter which variety of SIE review you end up signing up for, your instructor will help you cover all of these topics, as well as the format of the exam and the set of rules you must follow.
In order to take your qualification exam, you must be associated with a FINRA member firm, but this is not the case for taking the SIE. The SIE is conducted over the course of 1 hour and 45 minutes and consists of 75 multiple choice questions. In order to pass the exam, you must get 70 percent of these questions correct.
As is the case with any form of standardized test, in addition to mastering the relevant material, you may also benefit from learning test-taking tips and strategies that you can employ when you encounter particularly difficult or tricky portions on test day. Our prep services have the potential to teach you test-taking skills that can be useful when you take the SIE test.
What are the benefits to each of the different styles of Miami SIE prep?
There are two major types of preparation that are offered by Varsity Tutors, and they each have distinct advantages. They can both be conducted entirely online.
If you are the type of student who enjoys working collaboratively toward a common goal, your best option may be signing up for a Miami SIE prep class. Your sessions will take place in a virtual classroom environment, where you will meet with your classmates and an experienced instructor to participate in group discussion and activities. This approach exposes you to a variety of perspectives on the material, and member of the class can share the best ways they have found to prepare for the exam. If you so desire, you also have the opportunity to request some one-on-one time with the teacher of your class.
For those who learn best through focused, personal instruction, we also offer the chance to work with a Miami SIE tutor. Sessions with your private instructor can be held over our Live Learning Platform, complete with video chat and a virtual whiteboard. If you prefer, you can also schedule face-to-face sessions together. Private instructors have the ability to first evaluate your skill level with the material and then customize their lesson plans to focus on the areas where you could use the most improvement. This approach means that you will not be asked to work at anyone else's pace, and your time can be spent in the most efficient way possible. Your instructor can also listen to your personal concerns and give you regular feedback on your progress.
