This is truly a great set of preparation tool for the CPA exam with a minor caveat. As someone who has bought the 2006 edition and finally got around taking the exam, these booklets were instrumental in allowing me to pass the exam the first go-around. It has more than enough multiple choice questions to help you prepare for that part of the cpa exam. I truly encourage anyone taking the exam to visit the cpa-exam.org site to practice the simulation portion of the exam as these booklets are not as helpful for that portion of the exam, as you may have surmised. While it does have questions that are found in the simulation section, you won't know how to navigate around the simulation portion of the test until you actually try one. It is just matter of learning how to look up various accounting principles as well as how to cut and paste the relevant sections to the answer section. It helps if you already know how to navigate around the simulation section beforehand and that experience, this book will obviously not provide.

Going back to the review of the booklets, these books are not for you if you learn better in a group setting. However, if you are inclined to independent study, I wholeheartedly recommend that you buy these books. As someone else had mentioned, I found the the multiple choice questions in the books to be much harder than the actual exam questions. Therefore, do not get discouraged if you find that the questions in the books are challenging because they are. However, it will be more than enough, in my opinion, to get you ready for the test. Ultimately, the best way to prepare is to do as many sample questions as possible,and these books have more than its fair share of them.

In summary, if you are inclined to independent study and do not have the financial wherewithal or just plain too cheap (like myself) to take the courses that are offered -such as Becker - these books are definitely the right purchase

I haven't yet received my scores, so I can't say whether I passed, but I can say that these really helped me focus my studies onto the questions I missed in the practice exams found in these books. I bought these books because I found the current program I was using (CPAExcel)really lacked enough questions to guage how I was doing and allow me to practice my skills repetitively. There were enough questions in these texts to aid in my understanding of the subject matter, plus I looked to some of the outlines to gain a clearer understaidng of some of the concepts. I mostly bought it for the questions and it was great for that.

I am a Course Director for CPA review in Dubai. We recommend to all our students to follow this book. This is the best book not only to pass the exams but to score high marks.

I had sat for the CPA exam 30 years ago and passed 2 of the four parts. A job offer came along and I went into a different career. Now in retirement I decided to finally get my CPA. I found the Wiley system has a comprehensive and systematic approach for preparing, studying, and sitting for the exam. I expect I'll be sitting for each of the parts over 4 to 5 month intervals, (there are 4 parts to the exam). A major drawback to the Wiley method is a poor index and cross referencing system between various topics. Also the Wiley system uses many acronyms such as SSARS which are typically only defined once. When they are use elsewhere in the study - it is most difficult to find their definitions. All in all it seems like the CPA Exam Review is worth the money.

I think there are two types of candidates preparing for the CPA exam. Those who know are well prepared and do not need much reviewing.
Wiley CPA review program is for you if you fall under those well prepared.

As some people have mentioned elsewhere, the sample questions seem irrelevant or do not necessarily reflect the real MC questions very closely. Explanations are not very well organized and some sections are grossly inadequate. It feels like it was written by college professors who have their own philosophy about accounting and don't give a damn about whether their customers actually pass or not.

I can honestly say Gleim is right for me because I happened to fall under a category of candidates who need some extra help. If you know you need some extra help but cannot afford expensive programs like Becker then use Gleim. Their sample questions closely reflects the actual CPA questions and review sections are well organized and easier to follow. You might also want to check out other programs like Yaegar to suit your studying style or adaptability.

This book has really good techniques to help you pass. I was surprised as this is the only material I used, my buddy paid over 3grand for the same cpa review with Becker. He ended up studying my book too because the strategies are much sharper. I made a better grade them him and i passed all four parts in the first try. This book is definitely amazing to help you pass. Study smart prepare smarter by using the strategies. that's what helps you pass the CPA.If i can do it anyone can, it has been 10+ years since i took an accounting class!!! Make more money pass the CPA with Wiley to help you out!!A+++
