    Did anyone get the audio package? Did it actually help you? How did it help you? Personal experiences please!

    I'm currently using it. There's a few things here and there, but my wish was that he split up the long ones (individual tax, corporate tax, for example). Other than that, there's a few things that I've picked up. There's certain scenarios that he does a great job of providing imagery to get the point across. For example, he helped me learn what itemized deductions are not subject to phaseouts (“you get sick, you die, (pass the money to your kids), “one of them gambles”, “one of them invests). It's a lot of material but as a supplementary product, it helps.

    I used FAR Audio and I felt it was worth it. From an efficiency standpoint it's worth its weight in gold. I commute about 45 minutes to an hour daily so I was able to listen to it over and over again in the car. I was then able to memorize parts of the lectures and apply those lessons to my MCQ's. As a supplementary piece, I think it helped get me over the hump.

    The two NINJA products I have consistently used have been the MCQs and the Audio. I didn't use the audio for my last reg exam (as you can probably tell, didn't study much) so I definitely used this time around. I really like the way Jeff explains things in the audio, I didn't feel like it's boring like Gleim's audio and Jeff even makes up quirky ways to remember things later on during your studies or exam. I feel that it was definitely worth the time and money. Also, think of it like studying on the go…use it in the car, while working, doing things around the house, etc.

    I used FAR and REG, I liked it. I need to drive 45 mins to work, so it was perfect.

    Audio is definitely worth it. I have a 45 minute commute both to and from work. That is all I listened to – NINJA audio. It helps keep things fresh that you learned early. I used it for every test. I even had exam questions that were almost verbatim from the audio. When you have to live and breathe this exam every minute counts.

    @Nahla2016, I am Chinese and I really like the Audio. Sometimes it is boring, I would put on music, but most of the time, I just listen and memorize when I am driving.

    for REG i felt like the audio was the best, REG is more concept based then the others, it really helped me with my score alot. went from a 70 to 85. I would listen to it while driving to work.

    i created my own audio, esp for non tax sections and it helped a lot, why? 1) i was reading the concepts out loudly, 2) it was a re-read of my notes so it was thorough. i never needed to re-listen the lectures on those topics. reg is a beast so do it in any way that works for you (in terms of time & money). gl everyone.

    If I can do it, you can do it too!

    Experience was the worst part of the journey for me. You?
