New to this forum, but just took the exam this afternoon. I'm happy to say that i walked out of there very confident. I also think that wiley is much harder, maybe because Wiley tricks you on every other questions. Never touched the Becker (too expensive), but Wiley/Bisk is sufficient to pass the exam. Studying for three months also helps. And during the last week of studying i did 10 Q&As for every chapters everyday. that's 150 * 7 Days. And it help me remember easy stuff, since i spent much of my time on complicated problems. Time wasn't also an issue. As someone here suggested, i tried to finish the first teslet in under 30 minutes, and was not rushed at all during the sims.

rcarcellar, nice one, I hope to feel the same. I'm a Wiley user also, would never pay the big bucks for becker, and felt the same with the other parts, Wiley was much harder than anything the CPA tested me on.

This is like the first post where someone finally said it wasn't so bad. I just couldn't see how FAR could be so difficult, at least compared to other sections.
