If you're looking for expert Series 79 prep, Varsity Tutors can connect you with private Series 79 tutoring today. Series 79, or the Investment Banking Representative Qualification Exam (IB), is a standardized test administered by FINRA (Financial Industry Regulatory Authority) to assess whether financial professionals have the knowledge required to perform the duties of an investment banker. If your Series 79 test prep could use a boost, consider taking one of our Series 79 classes today!
Series 79 test preparation generally begins with a review of the structure of the exam. It is a multiple-choice test featuring 75 questions questions administered over a single testing session lasting 150 minutes. The exam is also computer-based, meaning that you take it at a testing lab using a specialized computer instead of a traditional test booklet. If you are at all nervous about the time limit or digital structure, you might want to take practice exams as part of your Series 79 test prep to improve your self-confidence.
Once you understand the test's formatting, you can move on to specific content areas. The following chart highlights the topics you may wish to review as part of your Series 79 prep:
Series 79 Exam Structure
|Description||Percentage of Exam||# of Questions|
|Collection, Analysis, and Evaluation of Data||49%||37|
|Underwriting/New Financing Transaction, Types of Offerings and Registration of Securities||27%||20|
|Mergers and Acquisitions, Tender Offers and Financial Restructuring Transaction||24%||18|
Most Series 79 courses spend a lot of time on the Collection, Analysis, and Evaluation of Data because it comprises nearly half of the test, but what if you would prefer to review one of the other sections? Our private Series 79 class allows you to go over anything you feel you need to. If you're confident in your data analysis skills, you can spend your Series 79 prep going over mergers and acquisitions instead. There are also no time constraints associated with Series 79 tutors, ensuring that you never leave a topic behind until you are ready to do so.
Taking a private Series 79 course also allows you to receive individualized attention. Any questions you have may receive an immediate answer, allowing you to seek clarification before you feel hopelessly confused. Your instructor may also be able to tailor your Series 79 preparation to your unique learning style. For instance, a visual learner might review a chart listing all of the ways to register securities to make it easier to visualize, while a hands-on learner might prefer to file sample transactions to gain practical experience. Your tutor may even be able to incorporate your outside interests into your Series 79 test prep to make sessions more engaging. For example, you might review your favorite investment banker's portfolio to get a sense of how it's done.
Varsity Tutors also tries to make Series 79 prep as convenient as possible. All of our classes take place on a mobile-friendly Live Learning Platform, giving you all of the benefits of face-to-face tutoring without needing to leave the comfort of your living room! We also try to match every student with an instructor who can accommodate your scheduling needs for added flexibility. Series 79 test prep should be something you do, not the only thing you do.
