First off, this was my first time using any sort of guide for a standardized test. While I passed on my 1st try, there were A LOT of differences between what was taught and what I was tested on. I saw 10+ questions with terms I either have never seen before and have never seen in that wording/phrasing. It wasn’t very hard to figure out what “concentration risk” was but that wasn’t a term I had seen in the study guide. There were others that weren’t easy to figure out.
I’d still recommend this study guide but you should absolutely take the practice test on FINRA’s website (Practice Test for the Securities Industry Essentials Exam (SIE) | FINRA.org ) a few times before you take the test to get used to the vocabulary change. Unlimited practice tests and self-learning flashcards are so helpful that this is still worth it, can’t wait for more of these to come out!
