      • Updated FINRA rules
      • Regulation A+
      • Regulation D
      • Money market instruments
      • Insider trading
      • New suitability rules
      • Taxation

and much more that you will need to know to pass the Series 82 and sell private placements.

The Series 82 is a difficult exam, but with our guide you will approach the test fully prepared and be ready to enter the private securities industry with knowledge and expertise.  As Solomon Exam Prep President Jeremy Solomon says, “The increase in the numbers of people taking the Series 82 has mirrored the rise in the sale of private securities.  The Series 82 isn’t as extensive as some other FINRA exams, but it is not an easy exam for most test-takers.  That’s because three-quarters of the exam is on the regulation of securities and handling customer accounts, topics many professionals in the world of private placements may not be familiar with.  Becoming familiar with securities industry rules and laws generally means reading and practicing, something busy securities professionals often have difficulty finding the time for. That’s why Solomon study materials are so valuable — they make the process highly efficient and guide test-takers to success.”

Solomon Exam Prep has helped thousands of financial professionals pass their FINRA, NASAA, and MSRB securities regulatory exams including the Series 6, 7, 24, 26, 27, 28, 51, 52, 53, 55, 62, 63, 65, 66, 79, 82, and 99. The Solomon Exam Prep training system includes print and digital Exam Study Guides, Online Exam Simulators, Audiobooks, and Video Lectures to address the learning needs of all kinds of test-takers.

New Solomon Exam Prep Study Guides!

To ring in the New Year, Solomon Exam Prep is pleased to announce the publication of new Exam Study Guides for the FINRA Series 6, FINRA Series 7, and NASAA Series 65. Continue reading

Solomon Exam Prep has been publishing study materials for securities exams for over ten years. Keeping our materials up-to-date and constantly adding product offerings is just part of the reason why Solomon Exam Prep boasts a first-time pass rate of 92% across all exams with thousands of happy customers.

New BooksTo ring in the New Year, Solomon Exam Prep is pleased to announce the publication of new Exam Study Guides for the FINRA Series 6, FINRA Series 7, and NASAA Series 65.

President and founder Jeremy Solomon emphasizes the importance of up-to-date study materials: “Once upon a time, you could use an old textbook from a friend and expect to pass your Series 7.  In those pre-Dodd-Frank and Bernie Madoff days, regulations and securities licensing exams in particular, didn’t change that often. Today like everything else, the rules and the exams change at a dizzying pace. Financial scandals, and the changing views of Congress, the regulators and the courts, mean that students who want the best chance of passing need current materials. Even more so now that the required passing scores of many exams have been increased. The bar has never been higher.”

With detailed explanations, visual study aids, and example questions, these new Study Guides will keep you engaged as you prepare for your exam. Solomon Exam Prep also produces Online Exam Simulators, Audiobooks and On-Demand Study Courses to make learning even easier.

“I passed my Series 24 with two weeks of nearly full-time study, using the textbook, the online class, and the exam simulator.  The textbook was very readable and helpful in providing complete explanations, as well as helpful memorization tips.  The online class and pre-recorded sessions were crucial to get through all of the material and put it in relative context.  It was helpful to be able to have questions answered instantly and via email afterward.  The online simulator questions were just like the exam questions, and the immediate feedback function was essential for learning from the practice quizzes and exam.  I needed every minute of my study and practice time to count, and Solomon Exam Prep made it possible.  Thank you!” -T.

Series 55, 2nd Edition Study Guide – Now Available!

In response to the new FINRA Series 55 outline, Solomon Exam Prep restructures its Series 55 exam guide giving Solomon students the most up-to-date Series 55 study materials available. Continue reading

Series 55 Exam Study GuideSolomon Exam Prep is pleased to announce the publication of “The Solomon Exam Prep Guide: Series 55 FINRA Equity Trader Examination, 2nd Edition” (https://solomonexamprep.com/series55/exam-study-guide).

FINRA has revised the Series 55 exam for Equity Traders into three new sections that reflect the three major functions performed by an Equity Trader. The functions include trading, order handling, and record keeping and regulatory reporting. The candidates will be tested on knowledge required to perform each of the job functions.

The exam is still 100 questions long, and test-takers continue to have 3 hours to take the exam, but the passing score has been lowered to 67%. The weighting of questions has also changed, and will now focus more on trading and order handling rules and practices and less on general industry standard rules.

The following are the three major sections and the number of questions on the exam for each section:

Section 1:  Trading, 45 questions;

Section 2:  Order Handling, 36 questions; and

Section 3:  Record Keeping and Regulatory Reporting, 19 questions.

The Solomon Exam Prep new Series 55 text is organized according to this new outline and reflects all new changes to the outline. Our online exam simulator has also been revised to reflect these exam changes. Customers can take quizzes by section, and also full exams that reflect the new question distribution, and the new passing rates.

You can now order the new text as a digital or hard copy guide by calling 503.601.0212 or going to http://solomonexamprep.com.
