What are people saying?
I just took and passed the Series 51 in one attempt. The Solomon materials were excellent. The Solomon simulated tests were very beneficial and were very similar to the actual 51 test. Thanks to Solomon I was well prepared to succeed. When I was taking the actual 51 exam, I did not encounter any surprises that I was not prepared for. Solomon seems to have it very well covered.
My method for success? I read the book chapter by chapter, taking the chapter practice tests along the way. I saved the questions I missed for review later. I then went through the book a second time using the same method.
After reviewing the questions I had missed on the smaller exams, I started taking the timed simulation for the test. Again, I reviewed the questions I got wrong, making sure I understood the reason for getting it wrong and what the right answer should be. I did this review of missed questions every time I took the simulated exam.
I took the simulated exam five or six times, getting scores in the low 80s.
This method prepared me to take the real test which I passed on my first attempt.
I highly recommend both Solomon and this study method for taking the 51.
Good luck all future test takers!!!!
I used Solomon Exam Prep for both the Series 7 and 63. Everyone learns differently, and they have resources for every type of learner. Their practice exams and quizzes push you to be prepared for the most difficult questions, enabling you to be over-prepared (better than the alternative!) for your exam. I received a 93% on the Series 7 and wish the regulators provided a score for the Series 63, but needless to say I passed. If I ever need to take a regulatory exam again, I will look to these guys first.
I would not have passed the Series 7 top off without the Solomon materials. The structure of the questions was the closest out of all the programs I tried and their customer support is top notch. I will definitely be back! Thank you!!

The virtual class and the test questions really helped me pass the Series 26. Thank you.
