According to Becker, we shouldn't expect to have any Simulations on government and not-for-profit accounting.  However, they include a couple in their software.  Is it worth it to do these Sims, or are multiple choice questions enough?  Is it fair game for the examiners to put a Sim on this topic on the exam?  Thanks for any advice!

I would study those simulations. It is very possible for you to have a govt sim. Search govt sims on here and you will see they have been tested before. Good Luck!

Hi shades395,

I am using Becker 2009 that do not have sims on Governmental and NFP.
Could you tell me how have those been framed on Becker 2010?

It would be great if you could help me with this.
Thanks

This is from the update page on becker's website

NOTE: There is no longer any guarantee that the examiners will not use simulations to test governmental and not for profit topics. Be sure to work all your simulations, including the governmental and not for profit simulations. The AICPA may use simulations for these topics.
