Why take the SIE?
In order to engage in securities business, you are first required to pass the FINRA Securities Securities Industry Essentials (SIE or Essentials) Exam.

Applying to financial firms with your SIE credentials in hand is the best way to get a hand over the competition. It shows your potential employers that you already grasp the basics of the profession, and that you've taken the initiative to learn about and pass this required test. Not only that, but hiring a pre-qualified applicant also saves them the time and money of training someone without the credentials.

Success spotlight
Achievable actually made the exam material palatable and even fun to learn. With the learning science behind the study system, it was almost scary how well I could recall formulas and regulations. The interface and flashcard-style kept it easy and fun to get more studying done any chance I had free time, especially watching the test-readiness climb. The mobility of it was huge to utilize every minute of time I had to learn and review, whether I was on a train, waiting in line, or on a break at work.
