What Mobile Audiobook App Should I Use?
There are many great apps available available in the app stores for listening to these audiobooks. Below is a short list of some apps we recommend.
** Audiobook apps are NOT the same as Music apps. Audiobook apps are designed to play your tracks in the correct order, all the way through the book, and remember where you left off when you stop. You can easily start back up where you ended.

What is an Audiobook?
The Audiobook is a verbatim reading of the Exam Study Guide offered for your Series exam. It is separated into tracks that you can listen to or download via your account on www.solomonexamprep.com. We also offer an upgrade to Standard Audio CDs for an additional fee.
Does the Audiobook come on CD?
Currently, the SIE is the only Series that is offered with the option of Standard Audio CDs, which is available to purchase for an additional fee. We will then ship the CDs to your preferred location. Note that if you choose this upgrade, you can still stream or download the Audiobook on www.solomonexamprep.com.
Is the Audiobook easy to listen to?
While the subject matter may not be easy, the listening will be! Click here to listen to a sample: Series 6 Audiobook.
How long is the Audiobook?
Each Audiobook varies in length. Please refer to the individual product pages for the Audiobooks for more details.
Can I stream the Audiobook on my computer, tablet, or mobile device?
Yes! As long as you have an Internet connection, you can stream the Audiobook by hitting the play button on each track.
Note for iPhone and iPad users: The Audiobook's track lines are optimized for downloading the MP3 files. Apple does not allow direct downloads to devices, so you must be sure to hit only the play button of the track line or your Audiobook may begin skipping since it's attempting to download the MP3 file. Please see "How do I add the Audiobook to my Apple iDevice?" in these FAQs for more information.
Can I download the Audiobook to my iPad/ tablet/ mobile device?
Yes! There is a download button located on the right-hand side of each track. Make sure you understand how to download and add MP3 files to your device. Some manufacturers (i.e. Apple) do not allow you to download files directly to your device. In these cases, you would first need to download the tracks to a computer or laptop. Please refer to the last two FAQs in this list for more information about how to do this.
We are available to help you with this process should you like to contact us.
