Passed the Series 79, was really difficult but the materials prepared me well. Was passing the practice exams with mid 80's to high 90's the last two days. Highly recommend using Solomon.
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.
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.
Just passed my Series 7 using Solomon Exam Prep! Have used Solomon for my Series 79 as well. Both study programs are excellent and felt well prepared sitting for my exams. Would recommend to others in the industry.
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!

Within a few months, I passed the SIE, Series 7, 63, 65, & 79 exams all on the first try using Solomon Exam Prep. This material will prepare you for the actual exam. I will say in many instances the practice exams are more difficult than the actual exam. Solomon and the various tracking metrics will more than help you prepare for the rigors of exam day. I highly recommend the practice exams and ability to dive back in to review weak areas. I will continue to use their products and services in the future.
