    Buy NINJA for $67 and if you don't like it, ask for a refund and buy Gleim 🙂

    30 days, full refund, no questions asked … it doesn't happen very often, so I don't worry too much about it.

    I try to treat people the way that I would want to be treated, and hope they will do the same.

    @Painted_Jeans Not Jeff, but you definitely can do that. I used Ninja monthly just as a supplement during the last month of my AUD prep then cancelled it. Then I just picked it up again to do the same with REG. If not for Ninja monthly I wouldn't have bought the Ninja materials.

    I began studying for FAR with Gleim, and I can say with certainty that Gleim is a bloodbath. The book is too detailed and the questions are HARD. I recently switched too Becker and I love it. The videos are much easier to understand, and Becker does a way better job of helping you to pass. Gleim is just information overload. If you can afford Becker, then make the switch.

    Gleim works very well for some people and not at all for others. If you can learn the Gleim material the actual test feels like a joke with how easy it is.

    Hi Tim, question for you. With what types of people does Gleim not work for? I am considering taking this course next year. I have it as 1 and Yeager 2 Roger 3. I think every review course has its pros and cons. The reason I have Yeager very high although its not too popular on this site is because the guy Phil is adamant of his books going by the AICPA Blueprints. Thats their pitch. The downside is their lack of popularity and not too much MC and Sims. Then again I plan to supplement whatever course with Ninja so that may not be too much of an issue. Roger its the videos the Pro, but the Con is that I have read on this site by many that the MC and Sims are too easy something like that so that kind of turns me off. Some.like it for sure I guess it depends on the individual. Definitely not going with Wiley and then Becker their pitch is that its the best course and the most reputable, but they have the Cons such as expirarion and Sims not being hard enough. For Gleim, its hard but its a nice challenge I think. I have heard that its downside is that the videos aren't too great and very hard study material. I don't take that having hard study material is a con. Just curious to know how to be successful in that course and what types of people is the review not recommended for?

    I say get both. I have Ninja but I also have Gleim. I have been out of college since 2005 so some of the material is new to me and I never really took it all in(ie. consolidations, derivatives…).

    Gleim is good for those who need to go back to the basics and need that extra detail. Ninja is good for if you just need to jump right in.

    I only purchase Gleim's test bank which comes with the PDF textbook. I use Ninja for the video lectures and the test bank. Pretty cool stuff.

    Is it possible to be done with Ninja and Gleim in 6 weeks and take the exam?

    @RaulB

    I think Gleim is suited for people who are good academics. People who struggle with the concepts and need good lectures and easier explanations probably won't like it. The difficulty of the material can be demotivating, also, so it could be bad for someone who struggles with that aspect.

    @dmv18 Sure, if you're studying full time. I don't see it happening if you have a full time job. I mean, when will you sleep?
