FINRA releases final SIE outline

FINRA released the final Securities Industry Essentials (SIE) exam content outline. Continue reading

Today FINRA released the final Securities Industry Essentials (SIE) exam content outline. The outline is an updated version of the draft that FINRA released as part of an earlier regulatory notice. This final content outline is now available on the FINRA website.

With the release of the SIE content outline, content outlines for the revised representative level (“top-off”) exams — the Series 6, Series 7, Series 22, Series 57 Series 79, Series 82, Series 86/87, and Series 99 — are expected to follow.

While FINRA has proposed a $60 fee for the SIE exam, it has yet to determine a passing score.

The SIE is expected to launch October 1.

FINRA Proposes $60 Fee for Securities Industry Essentials (SIE) Exam

As the Securities Industry Essentials (SIE) exam looms in the distance, FINRA is moving full steam ahead to ready the exam for its October 1 launch. Continue reading

On December 20, 2017, FINRA held its Board of Governors Meeting to discuss rule proposals and the 2018 budget. One rule that was addressed was the fee for the Securities Industry Essentials (SIE) exam. FINRA chose a fee of $60 for the exam. This rule change will be filed with the SEC and await approval sometime in the new year.

The $60 fee is considerably less than the $100 fee for the Series 6 and the $305 fee for the Series 7 exam. FINRA’s meeting notes report that the price for other exams will be reevaluated as well, to adhere to the changing securities landscape.

Jeremy Solomon, President of Solomon Exam Prep, responded to the proposed fee:

“This is another indication of how serious FINRA and the industry is about making the SIE exam as user-friendly and available as possible. Kudos to FINRA.”

13,000 Questions

The professors at Solomon Exam Prep have been hard at work. This month, after hundreds of hours of research and writing, not to mention grueling all-night debates and rigorous statistical back-testing, Solomon Exam Prep added practice question number 13,000 to our securities exam prep database!

In our company meeting, we discussed how to best celebrate reaching such a monumental yet obscure number. We considered consuming 13,000 calories of cake, but that just wasn’t cutting it. Lighting off 13,000 fireworks seems fun in theory, but we all agreed the execution would be far too dangerous. If you think about it, even a riveting game of office telephone would get old after the 13,000th round.

Instead, we decided to skip the fireworks and focus on what we do best, which is writing yet more highly relevant and high quality questions. While we’re proud of our achievement, 13,000 is only the beginning for Solomon Exam Prep. We’re already working hard on new questions for our database, and we don’t plan on stopping anytime soon—or ever, really. Does that make us crazy? Perhaps. But it’s a good kind of crazy because it makes Solomon Exam Prep the most effective and robust securities exam prep program. Having over 13,000 practice questions is just one of the reasons Solomon students pass their exams over 90% of the time. When you’re studying for the Series 7 or the Series 24 or the Series 65 or … bigger is better. Ask yourself: how many practice questions does your securities exam prep have? If it’s less than 13,000, do yourself a favor and try Solomon.
