Well, I'm almost certain I didn't pass, but the questions themselves weren't too hard. It was just a lot of stuff I didn't focus on. And i knew going into the exam what my weak areas were, but I just didn't have enough time to study them. I wanted to reschedule, but my Notice to Schedule expired this month, so i had to take it anyway.

I spent many many many hours studying Individual Income Tax, but the few questions on the exam were very basic. I should have spent a lot more time on property transactions, and a lot less time on business law.

I think the Wiley books are great, but if you insist on using Gleim then i would recommend that you focus on the topics that relate to the questions they ask for each study unit. Because sometimes Gleim gives way too much information. You've got to look at the big picture.

I was feeling awful by the time i got to the simulations. And once I read the simulation I knew there was no hope for me. I attempted them, but I wasn't sure about what I was doing on both of them. One of the written communications was very simple, and the other one was very complicated. I got creative and made some stuff up. :) I hope they only grade the easy one.

I guess I will find out my score in 3 weeks, but in the meantime I plan to take it again at the end of April. I know what i need to focus on now, so I'm positive that I can pass it next time around.

Hey congrats! You passed Reg.

Thanks! I still don't understand how I managed to do that, with my horrible simulations and guesses on most of the questions! Now i'm on to study FAR!

I have the Gleim Test Prep CD, Gleim Book and the Wiley Book. I took a look at the Wiley book and I have to say that the Gleim book is more straight to the point. Wiley appears to have a lot of pages which I don't want to read. I'm not using Yaeger on this section because I can't afford it. I actually started studying REG earlier this year and then put it to the side to focus on FAR instead. Gleim sucked for FAR though but Wiley was good. It just depends I guess.

I failed REG and need new materials. I used the Wiley book and I honestly think it was weak in a lot of important topics like Professional Responsibilities and Circular 230. Anyone use the Gleim book to study for REG? Is it any good?

Thanks!
