As small book publishers struggle to find their footing in an increasingly digital world, Solomon Exam Prep has taken the industry in a new direction by adapting its bestselling test prep books for the iPhone with the Series 63 iPhone application, a study aid for the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority’s required exam for securities agents.
The app allows test takers to study on the go by randomly delivering sample test questions right into the user’s palm. Its fast and simple interface eliminates many of the drawbacks of other digital test prep materials.
Solomon Exam Prep, a division of First Books, has been a leading publisher of financial test prep materials for the past two decades. Test takers using its bestselling line of Pass the Test books pass at an 86% rate, well above the industry average.
The Portland, Ore., company has also just published an updated version of its groundbreaking Series 6 app, which was released in June and was the first of its kind.
• Available through iTunes for $9.99, the Solomon Exam Prep Series 63 iPhone app features 195 sample test questions and is one of the most affordable test prep tools on the market.
• Free sample versions of both the Series 63 and the Series 6 iPhone apps are now available for download.
• Additional iPhone applications for the Series 7, 65, and 66 exams will become available later this summer.
