I was well prepared from using Solomon. Such
much so that I finished early enough to review the questions and my answers,
and determine my estimated score. Thanks! Great platform. Highly recommend using Solomon.
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.
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 took the test yesterday and passed! I think I started your program on Monday. I have 15 years of banking experience but needed to retake exams as they lapsed between out of industry jobs. Despite the experience, all of the specifics around the number days you have pre and post certain events for a filing etc. needed to be refreshed.
The unlimited question data bank was exactly what I was looking for and the searchable online guide was a bonus. As I was preparing, the online module allowed me to both understand why a particular answer was incorrect and then quickly cross reference the course material to ensure I understood other nuances as well around the subject matter.
I have made a recommendation to our compliance team to use Solomon and will to others as well.
Solomon has been hugely helpful to me. In 2022,
they helped me prepare for the SIE, Series 63, and Series 79 exams, and I
passed all 3 on the first try. I give huge credit to their focused materials
and suggested timelines for keeping me on track!
