What are people saying?
I found Solomon Exam Prep from a general comment that probably came from someone who works for the company. It went along the lines, "Solomon Exam Prep also has study materials for the 7" (goes to show you that inbound marketing works)
I tried the STC program that most firms provide, mine included. Didn't like it, and many people on the forum that went that route mentioned they didn't feel adequately prepared for the real exam. In the STC program you can only take each quiz and practice exam 1 time.
Also tried Kaplan's cheap 2 test simulation package but despised the components of the simulation, the mark for review button didn't let me go back to review the test before submitting it, and it took forever to "save" my answers before moving on to the next question. It was just a badly developed program. It wasn't improving my scores nor did it help me to better understand the material.
I tried Solomon's out because it was comparable in price to Kaplan's exam simulation program but I hate Kaplan's simulator. solomon's had a larger question bank, and both provided unlimited tests which was my real requirement.
Loved Solomon's exam simulator program from the start, and the Finra Concept tests combined with the simulation exams is what really improved my score.
Solomon will be the only company I use to prepare for all exams I may have in the future and I highly recommend it. Solomon got a life-long repeat customer all because of a generic comment from a random forum.
A more recent update after taking my Series 7 exam: Within one year of joining the financial industry, Solomon materials have gotten me a 100%, 4 for 4 pass rate with the SIE, S6, 63 and S7 all completed within 10 months. Once again, the materials and practice tests prepared me for the S7 exam better than I could've imagined. I will continue to refer people to Solomon, as the material, customer service, and whole experience has been unmatched.
I passed first try!
Three hours and forty-five minutes might seem like a long time, but it flew by. The Solomon Exam Prep
conditioned me very well. Utilizing the chapter quizzes and practice exams
really helped apply my learning, and also helped with time management. (Series 7)
In preparation for the Series 7, I began with Kaplan. I tested and did not pass. I then switched to STC materials. I tested and did not pass. I then switched to Solomon and passed! I also used Solomon for the 63 and passed the first time.
I highly recommend Solomon's test preparation materials. The question bank was far more extensive than the others and I definitely felt better prepared using Solomon.
Thank you...thank you.
I took my Series 7 yesterday and passed....1st try.
Read the whole book 3 times.
My system was to go through and answer the questions I was positive about.
Good guess at the others and park them for review.
The hardest part is trying to understand what they are actually asking.
This way I wasn’t bogged down and stressed being stuck on a question.
Second time around go through all those parked questions...digging deeper...checking my calculations etc. again parking the ones that totally stumped me.
Third time around....educated guesses and what seemed to make sense.
Also, on my way there, I was picturing myself in the room....sitting at the computer (yes, I took a dry run to see the inside). It took that part of the unknown out of the equation.
Be prepared for the masks and Covid precautions.
Any options questions, as tricky as they make them, I would look at my charts and was able to make sense of what they were asking.
Finished the test in record time.
Being prepared gave me the confidence to get through it.

Feels so good to have
passed! (Series 7) It was about as challenging as I thought it would be and I'm glad the
study material prepared me for understanding the concepts, and not just
memorizing terms and formulas. Only changed two of the 15 answers for questions
I flagged for review and finished it with more than 90 minutes to spare. The
relief I felt upon seeing "Pass" was awesome!
Used Solomon materials for both the SIE and S7. So grateful to
these materials for helping me achieve a passing score on my first attempts of
both exams. The study guide and videos were thorough, comprehensive and easy to
follow. I found the pie charts extremely useful in helping me identify areas
where I needed more study, and was grateful for the Pass Probability feature in
giving me a bit of extra confidence before sitting for the exam. I would
absolutely recommend all of their materials to anyone taking this journey.
