Took the test this past Friday. 

It was much, much harder than the Becker's Final Exams.  The simulations blew me away.  I found the multiple choice questions hard but not as difficult as the simulations.  I thought the opposite with Becker's Final Exams.  I did better on the simulations than I did on the multiple choice questions.  But then again, who knows if I actually did better on the multiple choice vs. the simulations on the live test!

The simulations in Becker final exams are wayyy too easy. It gives you a false sense of confidence. I also purchased the Becker 2011 Final Review, and those sims are even tougher than what is in the Becker final exams. I know that for REG, the sims on the test were way harder than what was in Becker. Hopefully I'll be able to handle the FAR sims, :/

I took FAR last year, but I really don't think any review course (even Becker) can prepare you for the sims on the actual exam.  You just have to know the material inside and out and even then it is still difficult.  Remember, one of the sims tabs is a pre-test question, so you might have done well after-all.

CPA24 -  Agree with you. We need to know inside and out of the material to succesffuly attempt SIMS. I would spend more time studying the materials than practicing SIMS. If you know the material, SIMS will not seem to be difficult.
