I passed the exam (finally) back in 2006. At that time, I used a combination of some old Becker guides and a computer study course that I had purchased myself. You might check out your local library/used book store to see if they have anything a little more recent than 2009.

Good luck!

Question - I have the old (2009) becker study books, but I know some changes have been made to the exam, do I need to update my review materials? I am the only one at my office taking the exam and everyone else who has taken it took it back in the 70's or 80's. Any suggestions? I am looking to not pay lots of money for a study guide. I saw that Wiley had a reasonable one. Anyone have luck with it?

The power to change, the courage to do, the will and drive to be exceptional lies within me, and by leaving my fears, my doubts, and my excuses behind, I embrace all that lies within me.

emoticon That's a great decision you've made, ladies! Good luck and all that!

Trust me, the sense of accomplishment you feel when you pass is worth every hour of study put in!

Me too on the CPA exam, although this is only my second year... I am attempting self study, as I sooo don't want to have to get to dallas every weekend for a month. I am planning on sitting in July/August before we get too busy again! When are you sitting for the parts?

Well, I have made a decision. Along with my no more excuses approach to fitness (doing a competition) I have decided to employ the same strategy to the CPA exam. I am finally (after 5+ years in the industry) determined to pass it.

I signed up for Becker. The live class. 4 straight sections with 2 weeks in between for final review and testing taking.

It's now or never!
