Had a challenge the first time with another provider and switched to Solomon. I found Solomon materials to be more comprehensive and the videos were a big help for the way I learn. Thanks to everyone at Solomon for going the extra mile.
Solomon's Series 79 materials are clear and concise. They were recommended to me over other prep material companies. Above all, the full exam simulator was essential in gaining familiarity, comfort and speed on exam day. I felt prepared and passed the exam the first time around.
I studied for the Series 7, 79, and 82 with Solomon Exam Prep, and I never scored lower than a 90% on the actual exam! The Study Guides are easy to understand, and the Online Exam Simulator really prepares you. I just purchased the Series 24 Essential Package today!
The 79 test was brutal. I went in feeling really confident. I was scoring 80% on portions of your exam simulator tests, and reread all of the materials and your study guide 3 times before I went in. I had also printed all of the questions I had missed in practice, and reviewed those in the parking lot before I went in. However, I had no idea what the answer was on the first 10 questions on the exam, and that really got me stressed! Just as I moved on to a few questions that were more familiar, construction activity began immediately outside the wall I was sitting at, and continued for 2 hours. The headsets I was wearing seemed to amplify whatever harmonics were coming off of the machinery, so when I pulled them off, it actually worked better. Also the monitor was poor resolution and old, which made it more difficult to focus. 2.5 hours in I had a splitting headache, and was certain I would not complete the exam and/or would get less than ½ right. The construction finally let up, and I blazed through the rest of the exam and had 45 minutes to go back through my marked answers. At least half were marked, and I got through about 2/3's of those before time ran out. The 2 minutes it took to compute my score seemed like an eternity. I was figuring I did reasonably well on Collection/Analysis and M&A since I do that for a living and was very comfortable with the subject matter, and completely bombed the underwriting and regs. My score (miraculously) was an 80%. Your exam simulator and study notes for the Series 79 were great. They gave me the spot-on practice I needed to prepare for the exam. Even more impressive was your team's extraordinary support and responsiveness as I prepared for this difficult exam. In the final days ahead of the test, you immediately addressed questions and concerns, and gave me the confidence and focus I needed to pass the exam on the first try.
I sat for the Series 99 and passed on my first attempt! I am thankful for the Solomon Exam preparation. The four-week study schedule was a life saver. I recommend using the Solomon products to prepare for any Series exam.

I haven't taken an exam in about 15 years and I'm happy to report that I passed the Series 50 Municipal Advisor exam on my first attempt. The material was extremely thorough and comprehensive. The online questions, quizzes and exams were very comparable in difficulty to the actual exam, thus providing the foundation for my success. Thank you for your guidance.
