Despite having a diploma in accountancy, I'm not familiar with investing at all. I'm looking to get started and studying for M9A has raised a variety of useful terms/keywords (like diversification coefficient and credit risk) that have spurred me to search more on the subject.
Am wondering if taking these SCI papers is beneficial to someone like myself, and if there are even more efficient/optimal learning resources to utilize (aside from Seedly).
These are regulatory exams and not the best to read up on investing. They are taken by aspiring financial advisers looking to pursue a career in the industry. Would suggest using youtube, google and sites like seedly/other personal finance sites (these are all free btw) instead

Investment books are great for designing systems to invest. They are terrible for being a better investor. Business books do a better job of learning to be a better investor.
Without a story and meaning, information holds little value. The fastest way to learn is to put money on the line. Being better at investing is a balance between expectations and results. Numbers matter, but it doesn't matter if you have no emotional discipline.
