I had Kaplan plus Achievable and basically abandoned Kaplan for Achievable.
I have no background in finance. I was a triple major in my undergrad in International Relations, Anthropology, and Women’s and Gender Studies with a minor in Spanish from Syracuse, also I am coming from a healthcare profession NONE of which even remotely prepared me for passing a finance exam. So Achievable really came through for me here and I’m so so happy and pleased! All of this was new and I felt like Kaplan was sooo confusing and longwinded and dense- I was lucky to find Achievable on Spotify and even happier to have passed my SIE on my first try. I’ve never stepped foot in a finance class or in an investment firm and I’m so grateful to this program.
Thank you for all of the hard work the Achievable team does for us! I was so shocked when I saw the Pass on the screen. I found the quizzing super helpful and the full length exams even better. I started at 40% on the exams, and in a matter of a week or so my score rose to 60s and rose till consistent high 70s and low 80s my last exam before test day was an 89- when I got to the testing center and took my exam I honestly felt like I was not going to pass my own anxiety but Achievable prepared me better than even I knew. I kept quizzing and quizzing till I was doing better on the exams than the quizzes!
Thank you all so much! I will be using the Series 7 and 63 program. Thank you!
My advice to anyone would be to keep going! Keep quizzing! Take the practice exams!!
