Passed the SIE!
Chris McHugh, McHugh Ins Group, Inc., Boca Raton, FL
All test from FINRA should never be taken lightly. The Solomon course work and exercise materials prepared me well for the SIE exam of which I passed the first time. I am onto prepping for the Series 79 and will once again use Jeremy Solomon’s resources and program. Thank you, Jeremy, for the outstanding support!
Constantino (Tony) Quintong Jr, Securieon Group. Carmel by the Sea, CA
I have now used Solomon for the SIE, series 6, and 63. I am ordering my 7 materials now. The structure and resources are right on target. The practice exams are more difficult than the exam which makes taking the exam much easier. I give all of the credit to Solomon for my 100% pass rate so far. I recommend Solomon to all of my coworkers.
Alex Coyne, Northwestern Mutual. Pensacola, FL
I was able to learn, practice, and pass both my SIE and Series 6 Exams ahead of schedule, while running my agency. The information was complete and the practice questions were plentiful! I highly recommend Solomon and will continue to use them in the future!
Shawn Swank, Swank Agency Allstate Insurance, Trinity, FL
Solomon Exam Prep was very thorough and prepared me not only for the SIE, but the practice questions were so in-depth I now feel prepared for the Series-7 top-off as well.
Steven Laesser, Raymond James, Saint Petersburg, FL
This program and study prep is amazing. I took and passed my SIE on the first attempt. If you follow the study guide you should be fine. I got to tell you I have never passed a test on the first go. Thanks, Jeremy! I appreciate all your tips and help you posted on the feed. It was all very beneficial to my success.
Tyrone Foster, Hall Labs. Provo, UT
THANK YOU SOLOMON! I passed the SIE in December and Series 6 in February. I do not have a background in finance. The study materials prepared me wonderfully for the exams. I used the study schedule - took a ton of practice exams and re-read the material. Also, the testimonials were very encouraging, so I had to share that I had the same amazing experience. Thank you so much!
Candace Chavez, Cetera Investment Services. Wimberley, TX
I took the SIE with Solomon Exam Prep and I have to say; the layout of the topics, the practice questions and the explanations of each subject matter is wonderful. They make it clear to follow and understand what the concepts are. Going back to re-try my Series 7 with them instead of my other book.
Ufy Sada, Morgan Stanley, Columbus, OH
When I took my SIE exam, I only spent 30 minutes taking the exam and I passed. It is amazing how Solomon goes into detail regarding information. You guys provide more information than Kaplan's SIE book. Thank you so much for helping me succeed in my endeavors. Onward and upward to the Series 7. I'm choosing Solomon again!
Zach Sloan, Cambridge Investment Research, Fairfield, IA
I took a job which required me to pass the SIE, Series 6, Series 63 and Series 26. Understandably this was a pretty tall task, but the Solomon Exam Prep materials made it incredibly easy. I appreciated how well all of the material was laid out for all four tests. I stuck to the study plans that were included in the resources and passed all four tests on the first try. This was a stressful time in my life, but Solomon got me through it! I would highly recommend Solomon to anyone who is looking to become licensed. Part of my new job is managing other licensed individuals and I recently hired two employees who are now required to be licensed. I reached out to Solomon for a demo of their Admin Portal and it is wonderfully comprehensive. It allows me to track my employees progress without having to reach out and be too invasive. Excellent all around!
Stephen Carbaugh, StanCorp Equities, Inc. Portland, OR
I got my undergrad degree in musical theater, never having studied or practiced anything regarding securities. I've been working as an actor over the last 10 years, and figured the Covid-19 quarantine presented an opportunity to learn something new. Solomon took me from knowing NOTHING about securities to passing the SIE on the FIRST TRY! I finished in under an hour and felt extremely confident about the entire test. I read every chapter twice, watched all the video tutorials, listened to the audiobook while driving, and took a large amount of practice exams. Do this - and you will be over prepared - I promise. I will absolutely be using Solomon again for any top-off exams!
Corey Cott, Philadelphia, PA
I've used the Solomon exam prep materials for both my SIE and Series 6 exams and passed both on the first try! The audio materials are a lifesaver and a great resource to utilize, especially while driving. Also, your team is fantastic! I reached out through the "Ask the Professor" option while studying for the SIE and the response and additional help was exactly what I needed. I highly recommend Solomon! Thanks again!
Kristina Ribali, Modern Woodmen Fraternal Financial. Naples, FL
I just took my SIE, Series 6 and Series 63 exams — I took them all on the same day (would recommend breaking them into separate days if you can, but I had specific work reasons I had to get them done). In any event, I PASSED all 3 exams. I used the Solomon materials and was extremely satisfied. Great study materials, I couldn’t have done it without your help. Thank you!
Glenn M., Detroit, MI
Using the Solomon SIE exam practice was a huge help at preparing for the types of questions that were asked on the real test. If you are passing the tests on Solomon’s practice exams with a consistent 75% pass rate, you should feel confident going into the test. Good luck, thank you Solomon!
Blake Rossman, True Wealth Financial, Fircrest, WA
I utilized the Solomon SIE and Series 6 Top-Off study guide package. I passed on the first time by following the exact recommendations. While the test is different than the study exam questions it covers the content in a detailed way preparing you to successfully pass the exam. Great product and customer service!
Michael Gehrich, Allstate Insurance, Ft Myers, FL
I passed after two
and a half weeks of studying for the SIE. I am an industry veteran, though have
been out of the securities business for over 10 years. It was really the logic
of the exam simulator process and repetition that did the trick.
The exercises and exam simulator were brilliant! Forward and onward to Series 82!
Norman Hall. West Tisbury, MA
Excellent exam preparation! Passed on my 1st attempt! SIE EXAM DO LOTS OF PRACTICE EXAMS, AND FLASHCARDS. I found the real exam question easier than the Solomon's ones. Thank you!
Gil Malamut, Prudential. New York, NY
Solomon's study materials and practice exam helped prepare me quickly and made me confident going into the SIE exam. I'm happy to have used their services and highly recommend their products for the SIE exam.
Kevin Ramani. Boston, MA
Thanks to Solomon I was able to pass the SIE, Series 7, and Series 63, great study material if you put the hours in!
Xavier Mata, Cabrera Capital Markets. Chicago, IL
What an excellent resource! I passed my SIE Exam on my first try and Solomon Exam Prep did an excellent job preparing me for the test. I would highly recommend purchasing the study guide, video lectures, and the exam simulator. The exam simulator is especially helpful. As long as you are scoring consistently in the mid to high seventies on the timed practice exams, you will have no problem with the actual exam. Thank you again to Solomon!
Carter Spearry, Merrill Lynch. Rocky River, OH
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.
Andrew Nerys, Square Inc. San Francisco, CA
After failing the Securities Industry Essentials Exam twice I was all but ready to give up. Then I used Solomon Exam Prep material which help me to pass the exam. I had a blast using their learning platform and would highly recommend it to anyone!
Innocent Anavberokhai Jr., Lawrence, KS
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.
Alex Coyne, Northwestern Mutual. Pensacola, FL
Thank you Solomon! I was able to pass the SIE, 7, 63 and 24 in a relatively short time period. The practice exams with answers really helped and when I had a question for The Professor, I always received a quick and accurate response. Solomon is definitely the way to go.
Seth Schader, CCO, Mercer Island, WA
I just want to thank Solomon Exam Prep for a great semester! We taught this curriculum at Widener University for the first time. The Solomon team was great to work with! Always available, very responsive and eager to help. The online offering is very comprehensive and we didn't miss a beat when we switched to remote learning. The QwizBang game was a big hit with the students (although more fun when we were all in the same room.) I can't thank them enough for all that they have done.
Maggie Creed, Widener University, Chester, PA
I passed the SIE on my first attempt thanks to Solomon Exam Prep's structure and chapter guides consolidating a large amount of information into easy to learn material. I did not study finance in College and have been in Compliance for the better part of my career. This has been a validating experience thanks to Solomon Exam Prep.
Marlon Gonzalez-Perez, Tradition. New York, NY
PASSED SIE ON MY FIRST TRY!! Initially started with a competitor but I was referred to study through Solomon instead. After comparing the two, I stuck to Solomon for 6 weeks straight. The material and practice q’s gave me a better understanding and helped me prepare for the actual exam. Thank you!!
Gelyn Rice, Allstate, Los Angeles CA
Solomon Exam Prep did it again! I passed the Series 63! Now, I'm 3 for 3 - SIE, S6 & S63 - all first try- thanks to the amazing study material! The practice exams are phenomenal!
Candace Chavez, Cetera Investment Services. Wimberley, TX.
I am so happy to announce that I passed the SIE on July 1st! Thank you, Solomon the book, videos, and exam simulator were the best! I went to the test with confidence, and I must say I felt like I was prepared for every question. I had more than enough time to complete all the questions and reviewed my answers. Series 6, here I come! Let's Go, Solomon!
Leanene Carriere, Nameloc Inc. Houston, TX
I passed my SIE exam the first time. Great tools and exam simulators, if you study the entire guide and take enough practice exams before your exam there's no reason why you wouldn't pass!
Rom Rabin, Los Angeles, CA
I only used the exam simulator and it was the best decision I made! I read a different textbook and used Solomon solely for test prep questions. I promise you the $70 or so this cost is 100% worth it. Every question that I got on my exam (May 2020) was related to all the questions asked in the Solomon exam simulator. If you are willing to put in the work and take all of the chapter quizzes and then take 5 each of the time/not timed exams you will pass. Another good thing is that you can download their app and take exams on your phone - I found this very useful when I didn't want to always be on my laptop all day.
Nick Sciortino, Barrington, NJ
the SIE was a requirement for my current position. I looked around at different
materials and started with Kaplan. The material was dry and seemed to have many
errors in it. I decided to scrap that and move on to Solomon Exam Prep which I
learned about from Reddit. The reviews were outstanding so I decided to give it
a try. After going through the material once I felt beyond confident to take
the exam. The study guide, audio book, exam simulator, and videos were
extremely well done. After two weeks of reviewing and acing practice tests, I
took my actual SIE exams and flew through it with about 1/3 of the time remaining
when I finished. The preparation from Solomon Exam Prep helped me gain the
confidence and understanding I needed to pass the exam on the first try!
Jared M. Albany, New York
I passed the SIE with the help of the practice exams from this course. The practice exams from this course seemed a bit needlessly difficult compared to the actual exam I took. While it prepared me well, it caused a lot of unnecessary stress. Don’t over do it on the practice exams.
Christian Heer, Merrill lynch . Los angeles, CA
Thank you so much Solomon Exam Prep. I took the SIE exam today and passed it the first try. Couldn't have done it without your help. Thank you again.
Cathy Villano, Eastchester, NY
Solomon Exam Prep
prepared me well with a large variety of questions on the practice exams. I was
able to pass my SIE on my first attempt, onto the Series 7!
Andrew Johnson, First State Investment Services. Worthington, MN
Thank you so much Solomon Prep for helping me to be able to successfully pass all three of my exams (SIE, Series 7 and Series 66) in a relatively short period of time. The exam packages were excellent! I will continue to refer people to your amazing program!
Jessica Macci, Goldman Sachs. Albany, NY
I passed my SIE. I was using Kaplan and it was not working out as well. I did study the book, did the simulated exams about 15 times and quizzes at least 5 times each before taking the exam. The testimonials here helped me follow a strategy and I stayed focused on passing. Solomon exam prep material really prepares you for the exam, I passed on Aug 21 2021 after using other competitive materials to no success. Thank you Solomon Exam Prep.
Omo Vanwie, Morgan Stanley. Columbus, OH
I finally passed my SIE this month. Thank you to this AMAZING, pass or money back Solomon's test materials. I did study the book, did the simulated exams about 15 times and quizzes at least 5 times each before taking the exam. The testimonials here helped me follow a strategy and I stayed focused on passing. Solomon exam prep material really prepares you for the exam, I passed on Aug 21 2021 after using other competitive materials to no success. Thank you Solomon Exam Prep.
Omo Vanwie, Morgan Stanley. Columbus, OH
The (SIE) exam was tough,
but I was well prepared after studying with the Solomon Exam Prep guides. Having a set study schedule made this much easier to follow
along. I'll definitely be using Solomon for my Series 6 and 63 exams!
Matthew Bird, Lincoln Investment. Liverpool, NY.
I'm not the best test taker. Solomon changed that. I was struggling on the quizzes and practice test. However, I passed the SIE on the first try. Took me less than one hour to complete. I felt very prepared.
Lamar Barnes, Washington D.C.
Just Passed the SIE! I started with the Kaplan study guide -read 3 chapters and fell asleep. I searched online for exam simulators like the ones I used for my IT certifications and came across the Solomon Exam Simulator. I started taking the chapter test over and over, some as much as 15 times. I spent a month of total study time and took the practice 85 question SIE exam 4 times with an average 58% score. I also took the FINRA practice exam 2 times. The results charts gave great insight on well I was master each subject. I used them day. I will tell you that the Solomon practice questions were a lot harder then the real exam. I think that made the difference. I took me just under an hour to complete the test. On the the Series 57- too bad Solomon does not have an exam simulator for that one.
