SMART SIE Interactive Web Training is a complete self-study training package delivered online. The program contains the full study text covering all topics tested on this exam. Printed study materials are optional. The course is divided into 10 chapters that are arranged into three study modules.

Smart SIE’s question pool, by far the largest pool of questions offered by any securities exam training firm, has over 4,500 unique questions from which the student can draw virtually unlimited chapter quizzes, mastery exams and simulated practice finals. The program is designed to enable each student to achieve the minimum competency to pass the actual exam.

The program is divided into 3 Modules, the same as our SIE text, and includes an online textbook that leads the user sequentially through every topic, testing the user on each major point.

SMART SIE Interactive Web Training:

  • Eliminates need for bulky textbooks
  • Makes the most efficient use of the candidate’s time, since the content delivery is dependent on user performance
  • Tailors the training experience to each user's strengths and weaknesses
  • Delivers consistent effective training at the lowest per-user cost

The program dynamically modifies each student's learning sequence, based on the student's strengths and weaknesses. If a user is having difficulty with a major concept, he or she is presented with the information to be learned in a variety of reinforcing methods until mastery is achieved. Therefore, users who are not having problems move rapidly through the program; those who are having difficulty will move more slowly, but they will meet the minimum competency level needed to pass the examination upon successful completion of SMART SIE. We developed this learning approach by combining the most successful teaching techniques culled from 30 years of preparing students for the securities exams.

Smart SIE includes an online Quick SIE summary guide, as well as an online glossary of defined terms. Audio sound bites that provide additional information about topics being tested in the practice portion of the program are included.

Smart SIE tracks each student's progress.

Each Smart SIE is a single user program governed by our End User License Agreement and valid for 9 months from date of purchase or until the user passes the actual exam, whichever comes first. Smart SIE can be renewed for an additional 3 months if the student assigned to the account has not passed the actual exam.

The content for SMART Interactive Web Training is constantly updated. Changes are added to the material as they become available.

Pass Perfect Live Virtual Classes are designed for final review before an individual takes his or her SIE exam. These are web-delivered live interactive classes taught by seasoned instructors who know these exams. The classes are exam-focused, emphasizing the content that is most heavily tested and the content that is most difficult.

The key to any live class is the instructor. Our instructors have, on average, been doing this for 30 years. This means that they really know these exams inside and out and they also know how to teach the content so that it comes alive in class. Our instructors really care about their students, and stay available after each class session to work with students who need extra help, and to answer additional questions on a one-on-one basis.

A great class experience can make all the difference in being properly prepared for these difficult exams.

Please note: Students should enroll in a virtual class after they have substantially completed their studies using their recently purchased Pass Perfect materials. To receive the full benefit from virtual review, class should be scheduled close to the actual test date.
