Series 66 2nd EditionSolomon Exam Prep constantly strives to produce the most up-to-date materials in order to give our students the best chance of passing their exam on the first try. Thus, we are proud to announce a new 2nd edition of our Solomon Exam Prep Guide to the Series 66 Uniform Combined State Law Examination. The second edition of the Solomon Series 66 Exam Study Guide includes more examples, visuals and practice questions, as well as additional information on the following topics:

  • Time value of money
  • Discounted cash flow method
  • Business structures
  • Trust and estate accounts, including the taxation of trust and estate accounts
  • Financial goals and strategies
  • Modern portfolio theory
  • Capital asset pricing model, including discussions of alpha and beta
  • Efficient market hypothesis
  • Options strategies
  • Fiduciary responsibilities
  • Investment policy statements
  • Suitability
  • Compensation, including comparisons of investment advisers and broker-dealers
  • Prudent investor standards

According to Solomon Exam Prep President Jeremy Solomon, “The NASAA Series 66 Uniform Combined State Law Examination is one of the most challenging securities licensing exams. After passing the Series 7, people underestimate the Series 66 exam and may not be successful on their first try. With this new edition we have greatly expanded our text and hope to convey the importance of the material the Series 66 covers.”

Regulators have set the bar high for this exam for a simple reason: the Series 66 exam, in conjunction with the Series 7 exam, qualifies you to be a securities agent and an investment adviser representative, so you must know what you’re talking about when giving investment advice or effecting securities transactions. This means that you need to know a lot of information, including the three types of securities registration, the nine types of investment risk, the difference between the strong, semi-strong, and weak forms of the EMH; when a securities professional is permitted to sell non-exempt unregistered securities (never); who may issue a stop order to deny, revoke, or suspend; when rescission is allowed and by whom; what contumacy is and how to avoid it; what prudent investor, suitability, and fiduciary mean—and more!

The comprehensive Solomon Exam Prep Guide to the Series 66 Exam works in three mutually reinforcing ways: it focuses on the most important aspects of the exam, provides you with plenty of practice questions, and continually reminds you why you have to take the test in the ­first place: to protect investors.

With practice questions at the end of each chapter, as well as a helpful glossary, the Solomon Exam Prep Guide will give you the knowledge to tackle the NASAA Series 66 Uniform Combined State Law Examination with confidence!

In response to the new FINRA Series 24 outline, Solomon Exam Prep restructures its Series 24 Exam Study Guide giving Solomon students the most up-to-date Series 24 study materials available.

Series 24 Exam Study GuideSolomon Exam Prep is pleased to announce the publication of the online study guide, “The Solomon Exam Prep Guide: Series 24 General Securities Principal Qualification Examination, 2nd Edition” (https://solomonexamprep.com/series24/exam-study-guide).

As of October 13, 2014 FINRA has revised the Series 24 General Securities Principal Exam outline to include new rules and laws, including the adoption of rules from the consolidated FINRA rulebook. The new Series 24 exam outline will be categorized by function, rather than by the current sections. In addition, in the new Series 24 each function will include specific tasks describing activities associated with performing that function, similar to the revised Series 7 and Series 6 exam outlines.

This brand-new edition reflects the revised FINRA exam outline format for October 2014, and includes the latest information on asset-backed securities, including new sections on Regulations AB and ABII and static pool analysis. Written by Karen Solomon, Ph.D., and Al Schaller, M.A., the guide works in three mutually reinforcing ways: it focuses on the most important aspects of the exam, it provides the reader with plenty of practice questions with detailed rationales, and it continually reminds them of the importance of taking the test in the first place: to protect investors.
