I just began studying for FAR using Becker 2010 materials. While I am only on chapter 1, I was wondering if I should purchase additional study aids. From what I have read, a lot of people recommend doing a ton of multiple choice questions. Also, I heard Becker's simulations are not the best. So, should I purchase a Wiley book to help me prepare for this section? Is there a book that is only multiple choice questions and simulations since I already have all the reading material in my Becker books?

FAR 07/15/10 Passed!
AUD 02/11/11 Waiting...
BEC 11/01/10 Passed!

I'm not taking this test, this test is taking me...taking control of my life that is!

Don't practice any simulations.  Buy the Gleim test prep download, it has a ton of questions with good explanations.  It's only like $50.

Everyone will give you different advice. Mine would be not to buy anything else. Becker is more than enough for FAR and has tons of questions. FAR is hard regardless what you use. FAR is the only test I would absolutley recommend using just 1 study aide. Its just so long and broad that overduing it with questions will drive you crazy. I didn't even bother with most sections supplemental questions for FAR because I was overwhelmed with the amount of regular questions.

Like I said, everyone is different so in the end just go with what feels comfortable for you.
