I am currently studying for BEC. I am using the Gleim
book and software. What would be a good study approach?

I have the 2008 Gleim Materials that I bought sometime in August/September of 2008. I plan on using them to study for the exam this year.

How outdated are they? I already spent hundreds of dollars on the 07 CPA Review books I needed for review classes I took in school, and upgraded to the 08 books when I thought I was taking the exam last year. I really don't want to spend another several hundred on 09 books unless it's absolutely necessary I need them to pass the exam.

Any thoughts on this? Can I pass the exam with the 08 books or is the material too outdated?

Christine

I have tried the Becker ones they are pretty good.Simulations are generally very hard to predict as well as prepare for.For simulations I would suggest a combination of both Becker and Gleim just to be safe.

I never used simulations extensively. If you know the concepts, you should be able to answer simulations. My suggestion is do not spend your money on simulation. Practice some from study manual of whatever brand you are using. Instead, focus on MCQ. Gleim test prep CD is the most cost effecctive one. Also, you may try gleim online. Though, gleim online provides same material, but it is useful to develop study habit.

Hi,

I’m new to the forum. I’ve been procrastinating for far too long on preparing for the exam. I purchased Becker and allowed the software to expire. I can't afford to buy Becker again and was wondering if Gleim would be a good alternative. Any advice would be much appreciated!

Thanks!
