Solomon Exam Prep—a leading publisher of securities exam prep materials—is proud to announce a partnership with Ohio Dominican University. With this partnership, ODU students will get everything needed to pass the all-important SIE exam.
As FINRA’s “introductory” exam, the SIE is used by securities firms to measure the seriousness of job candidates. For years, Solomon’s instructors have helped professionals pass securities exams—and now they’ve drawn on this expertise to create the best possible SIE test-prep materials. Geared to a variety of learning styles, these include:
- A digital study guide
- An audiobook
- Free mobile apps
- An online exam simulator with unlimited quizzes and exams
- A video lecture with slides and narration
- Custom study schedules for classes or independent study
Perhaps most importantly, Solomon’s materials are complemented by personalized support. As one student noted, “I didn’t think this kind of customer service and general human kindness existed anymore.” The company’s dedication shows in its consistently high pass rates.
Partner instructors rave about Solomon’s materials as well—especially for featuring:
- An online interactive admin portal where courses and student progress can be monitored (making “back-end faculty work a breeze,” as UN-Omaha’s Ray LeBlanc recently put it)
- A curriculum tailored to fit the needs of each school and program
- No expense to the partnering school beyond the study materials for the students
Contact us at 503.601.0212 to discuss setting up a Solomon partnership for your school—and to join such prestigious institutions as the University of Nebraska-Omaha, Adelphi University, Seton Hall University, and the University of Dallas.

Relevant to the SIE.
D. Both Henry’s sale to James and James’s sale to Carrie are secondary market transactions
Answer: D. When an investor buys shares in an IPO from the issuer, the purchase is a primary market transaction. After that, whenever sales of the security are traded from investor to investor, and not from the issuer to an investor, the sales take place in the secondary market. Thus, while Henry’s initial purchase is a primary market transaction, his sale to James and then James’ sale to Carrie are both secondary market transactions.

What is the SIE?
SIE stands for Securities Industry Essentials. The SIE is a fundamental exam that will launch on October 1st, making it easier for everyone to enter the securities industry. It is the new co-requisite for many FINRA licensing exams, including the Series 6, 7, 22, 57, 79, 82, and 99. The SIE Exam Bootcamp will cover every topic in the SIE exam:
1. Equity Securities
2. Debt Securities
3. Investment Companies, Life Insurance Products, & Other Packaged Securities
4. Options & Alternative Investments
5. Risk, Disclosures, & Taxation
6. Issuing Securities: The Primary Market
7. The Securities Markets
8. Customer Accounts
9. Prohibited Activities and Conduct Rules
10. Regulatory Responsibilities
Why the SIE?
Starting October 1st, passing the SIE will be the first step to getting licensed in the securities industry. If you want to get ahead of the curve, or if you need a better grasp of the basics of securities and the markets, the SIE exam course will be a thorough and valuable introduction. Students will also be provided with comprehensive study materials from Solomon Exam Prep and continued tutoring options upon completion of the SIE Exam Bootcamp.
How Can I Take The Class?
The UC Berkeley SIE Exam Bootcamp will take place August 6-9 on the UC Berkeley campus.

In preparation for the October 1 launch of the Securities Industry Essentials (SIE) exam, Solomon Exam Prep teamed with NASA to send Solomon SIE exam study materials to the Red Planet.
Unlike other FINRA securities licensing exams, the SIE exam will be open to anyone 18 years or older who is interested in the securities industry. FINRA has not publicly stated whether Martians will be permitted to take the SIE exam but since FINRA is dedicated to “investor protection” and to promoting “market integrity” Solomon takes the position that investors and markets on other planets can benefit from securities education, and the SIE in particular. Solomon has helped thousands of earthlings pass their Series 7, Series 6, Series 65, Series 63, Series 24, Series 50, Series 79 and other securities licensing exams.

Alert! Starting October 1, the number of exam questions for the Series 82 Private Securities Offerings Representative licensing category will increase from 100 questions to 125 questions. Continue reading
Alert! Starting October 1, the number of exam questions for the Series 82 Private Securities Offerings Representative licensing category will increase from 100 questions to 125 questions. That’s because starting October 1, the Series 82 exam, like all FINRA representative level exams, is being divided into two exams: the SIE (75 questions) and the Series 82 “top-off” (50 questions). More work!
But if you don’t want to take 25 additional questions, not to mention take two exams instead of one, then Solomon Exam Prep recommends you take your Series 82 exam pronto, before October 1.
Series 82 students will also be happy to know that Solomon Exam Prep has just updated its Series 82 Video Lecture with updates about Regulation D, Rule 147, and research report rules. The Solomon Exam Prep Video Lecture is a critical piece of the Solomon Securities Exam Prep system that also includes the Exam Guide, the Audio Guide and the Exam Simulator.
Spring is in the air and there has never been a better time to take the Series 82!
