Yea. I think understanding the concepts and practice are the best way to go. The first time I passed was after two times and this time I am glad only once. But it is a lot of materials to cover especially the gov. and non for profit stuff. Make sure you are knowledgeable in those.
Hey, I saw your message about FAR. I bought it in June and repassed it in July. So the wiley book (2012) is fairly new and unmarked. If you would like, I can sell it to you for cheap. I have no use for it hopefully not again!! Let me know. I am in FL though so I have to mail it to you.
