Portland, OR, August 22, 2016. After helping hundreds of individuals study and pass the MSRB Series 50 Pilot Exam, Solomon Exam Prep is proud to present a new, revised, and updated Series 50 exam prep program. The new program contains over 1,250 original practice questions.
“We were pleased with our students’ success on the Series 50 pilot exam: an 93.87% pass rate versus the national Series 50 pass rate of 84%. And we are excited to announce the launch of the Solomon Series 50 exam prep program,” said Jeremy Solomon, president of Solomon Exam Prep. “The MSRB updated and revised their Series 50 exam content outline and we responded to the regulators’ exam content changes, as well to student feedback from the pilot exam. For example, we added and updated material on MSRB Rules G-20, G-37, and G-42 governing activities of municipal advisors,” said Jeremy Solomon.
The Solomon Exam Prep Series 50 study program includes a Series 50 Exam Guide (digital and hard copy), a Series 50 Exam Simulator, and a Series 50 Video Lecture. Solomon Exam Prep’s innovative technology lets students study anytime, anywhere.
Informed by Professor Karen Solomon’s Ph.D. research on learning and memory, Solomon study materials emphasize learning then practicing, learning then practicing . . . With over 1,250 original practice questions, Solomon Series 50 students have a deep and robust pool of practice questions to hone their Series 50 exam knowledge and give them the active knowledge they need to pass the test. “Practice really does make perfect,” says Jeremy Solomon.

Five decades in the muni business didn’t guarantee I’d pass the Series 50 pilot exam. (Just knowing content doesn’t mean you are ready for the test.) Thankfully, my Solomon Exam Prep materials were fantastic at teaching complex subject matter in a way that made the answers clear, and I passed the test with ease.
If you plan to take the Series 50 exam, then I strongly recommend that you give yourself the edge that Solomon’s study materials provide.
