Oh thats great. hey, mail me your contact no - my email id is firstname.lastname@example.org . It will be great to plan and talk about each other's study plans. I'm taking Reg on Aug 12th for now - just got done with Reg 1 & Reg 2 from Becker (not the Sims though) - but DEFINITELY need to REDO it once again, don't seemed to have retained anything :-) Good you've scheduled for Aug 26th - gives you just enough time. Are you using Becker too?
I have used Becker material for it and I am okay with it. I guess if you need to build up confidence on Federal tax, do more questions on it from whatever study material you are using for it. It really helps .
