If you are considering taking the Securities Industry Essentials Exam for the first time, it is an excellent idea to consider taking a Tucson SIE course provided by Varsity Tutors. Though you might have already taken courses that have covered the information on this exam in your classes at a university, such as the University of Arizona, taking a well-designed prep course can allow you to feel more prepared and confident in your test-taking abilities in the weeks and days leading up to your test date. Varsity Tutors can enroll you in an online course that fits into your schedule.
What Are Some Topics that Can be Covered Within a Tucson SIE Class?
One of the benefits of taking an SIE class is that you will be able to re-familiarize yourself with topics that you may not have thought about in several years. These can include such concepts as monetary vs. fiscal policy, business economic factors, international economic factors, offerings, and equity securities, though the test does extend well beyond these concepts.
One of the most useful things that might be covered in an SIE class is the format of the test itself. An understanding of a test's format can be beneficial in making you feel more comfortable before you sit down to take the exam. The SIE is a multiple-choice format test that is comprised of 75 questions. You are given an hour and 45 minutes to complete the test, and in order to earn your certification, you must score at least 70 percent.
However, passing the exam does not mean that you will immediately be able to register with a FINRA member firm or to conduct business. In order to do so, you will have to pass both the SIE and an additional qualification exam relative to the type of business which you wish to conduct. You must be established with a member firm to take a qualification exam, but not the SIE itself. In short, taking the SIE is just the first step that a student will take on the road to succeeding in this particular career track.
What Are the Benefits of Taking a Tucson SIE Class?
The online SIE class is modeled on a traditional classroom-type course. This class takes place in an entirely virtual setting and uses a video chat feature and an online whiteboard, both of which are accessible through our Live Learning Platform. The courses are led by a highly skilled instructor. All that is required to participate in one of these classes is access to a stable connection to the internet. You are able to attend your course from anywhere in the world, such as a coffee shop, library, or even the comfort of your own home.
One of the often unsung benefits of taking an online course is the feeling of community that comes with doing so. Our online platform also allows you to interact with your instructor and fellow classmates as if you were in the same room. For example, if you have found yourself struggling with a particular subject that will be covered on the SIE, but notice that one of your classmates seems to understand that topic very well, it is easy to reach out to them and ask them if they are willing to assist you with better comprehending the topic. In addition to all of those features, if you need some extra assistance, you can always reach out to your instructor for some one-on-one help.
However, these are not the only benefits that come from taking one of the available SIE classes. It should also be noted that the classes run at a variety of different times and that new sessions begin regularly on a monthly basis. It is easy to find a class that will work with your schedule because of the variety of days and times available to choose from. For those who do not have schedules that are particularly flexible, this is an especially handy feature.
