I used Becker. I also used the final review. I practiced the simulations through Becker, however I would not say they helped me with the material on my exam, but it did give me the ability to put myself in that type of setting and get a grip on how to approach it, so I would suggest doing the Simulations. Some people say it is not worth it, I disagree. I really liked it. I probably have completely devoted my life to studying though. My study schedule consisted of about 28 hours a week of studying. I just found that I really needed it identify what I thought was important and what I just needed to know basic concepts. I reviewed probably every 3 chapters and consistently tested myself with the multiple choice questions. That is so important. Take the practice test. Don't get overwhelmed if you do not score extremely high on it. I was scoring in the 60's the night before the test and I ended up getting an 84 on the exam. I hope this helps some. It really depends on you and your study habits and commitment. FAR has the most information from my understanding, so it is really about managing the information...I am studying for Audit right now. Care to share your experience?
Hi Gina! I am using the Gleim total system and it has been working well for me. Today I am taking REG, so hopefully it will continue to work! ;) The key is to read the book and do as many MC and simulations as possible! Keep me posted!
