You guys rock!
I passed my Series 99 this past week on my first attempt. I had no previous brokerage and/or investment experience, just a background in finance.
I utilized the combination package with the textbook, video lectures, quiz simulator, and other materials. When I study for future FINRA exams I will utilize Solomon software and recommend it to my colleagues. I learn the most by listening and enjoyed the video lectures that had PowerPoint slides I could download and make notes on. The practice questions were fantastic at reinforcing the material and highlighting areas that I needed extra review on.
