Jim, how can I buy IPOs?-- Jon from New Jersey

James J. Cramer:

To get in on an IPO, you must contact your brokerage firm and request shares. Unfortunately, some brokerage firms have restrictions over which customers can take part in IPOs, but it is worth a shot to try if you like a company that is going public.

Jim, what is the best way to get rich in the stock market?-- Tom from Maine

TheStreet Recommends

James J. Cramer:

Unfortunately, there is no perfect route to wealth in the stock market. Those with the best shot at getting rich are the ones that start investing early, and do their homework, which is why I launched my Mad Money BAck to School college tour.

Investors should keep in mind that those who focus on getting rich over the long-term tend to do better than those who try to do it in just one week.
