Jenny ~ I had another question for you. I was reading some old post showing that you said you passed Audit with an 87. Congrats! That is wonderful! What review course did you use for this section? Just trying to prepare myself if Becker does not work out for me in this section.

Jenny ~ I guess Becker isn't for everyone, but I have found it pretty good for me so far. Right now, I can say I have gotten at least 25% worth by passing 1 section (FAR) with Becker on the first try. I am sure other products are just as good if not better. My company paid for Becker which I feel extremely fortunate. I also felt like if the bigger firms invest in it for their employees, it has to be somewhat descent. I have no prior experience in any other review course, so I really couldn't say Becker is the best, but so far for me it's been good. We will see..I take Audit this Friday, so hopefully the review given will be suffice. Did you use Becker for BEC? If not which ones did you use? I take BEC on November 30th and have heard mixed reviews on Becker's materials in that particular section. Which review did you eventually find success in that section? Thanks for sharing your experiences.

I think the order you take the exam makes a big difference as well. we have seen Foreign currency issues and Partnership issues when we took BEC. That will help alot in this section.

I agree Jenny! I was not overly impressed by Becker. I use Yaeger and Roger way more in depth and have tons of questions to do and simulations as well. I am retaking FAR Nov 1st :) I am ready to put this test behind me and move on to a new chapter in my life!

Hi Jenny ~ I though Tim was a little quirky too, but the information is good. They have to approach teaching it from this level because there are many who do not have the experience. While students have learned about amortize, they may not completely understand the concept. The way I looked at it was, hmm...I know this, scratch it off the list..Whoo hooo I'm ahead!! hahaha...You will appreciate his quirkiness when you pass FAR...Believe me, I did...I promise!! Good Luck!

Jenny you really make me lol I think we all feel the same but we need to think positive right.. I am using Yaeger switch from Becker it makes a difference however this is a lot of material and yes I do find it a bit boring too! :-) hope you feel better
