Just passed the Series 26! As a new mom, I relied heavily on the Audiobooks and being able to read or test on my iPad whenever I could. The material was accurate and I felt well-prepared after following the suggested study schedule.
passed my Series 65 today with an 80, first effort! Not only was the material
well laid out, but if it's possible, the Solomon prep made the material
palatable and understandable. Amazing!!! I have used Kaplan in the past as well
as STC, which are both very good, but I chose Solomon because it had audio
downloads. With an hour commute, I was able to study during that otherwise
Additionally, the "Ask the Professor" and live chat features were excellent!! Questions were answered virtually immediately by personal email from author/owner Jeremy Solomon and he actually called me to help me and cheer me on! I didn't think this kind of customer service and general human kindness existed anymore. He even asked me to let him know personally my results which, thanks to this program, I am on the other side of this very difficult exam.
Thank you Solomon Exam Prep!!!!!
