Hey all. So I know we are only 1 week into the testing window but if any of you took the REG Exam and used NINJA MCQ or Becker to prep, could you answer one question for me?
Which MCQ's did you feel better prepared you for the real deal? I'm not sure which to study. I know the new NINJA MCQ has questions relating to the new tax law however, i'm not sure where these questions are coming from (ie. did Jeff just create them based on new material and what he thinks will be asked, or is there actually some source of these new questions(since I know most NINJA questions are actual CPA questions that have been released)).
Also, I know we can't disclose questions specifically but is there any topic (as laid out by the AICPA Blueprints) that you definitely underestimated?
Any advice helps! Really trying to pass this on the 1st time around.January 8, 2019 at 8:38 pm #2155657
Learn the content, if you can talk about each section plainly for BLAW and know the rules and exceptions for tax you should be fine.
It sounds like you're feeling the pressure. It's normal. Keep working hard.January 9, 2019 at 10:05 am #2156203
I took REG on 1/4…know your basis! Especially for entities, but that's a given considering it's the largest section of the blueprint. Honestly, I didn't have a lot of BLAW, maybe 3-4 questions tops and no SIMS. I also didn't notice any new tax law questions, but YMMV. I used Becker and felt the most prepared for property taxation, pship basis, and blaw.
Good luck!January 9, 2019 at 2:40 pm #2156698
a couple weeks ago I asked someone at Becker if the AICPA gave them questions on the new tax laws and he said “No, but they have adjusted their questions for the new stuff”. I would assume if Becker did not get any AICPA released questions then Jeff most likely didn't either. But I could be wrong!January 9, 2019 at 11:07 pm #2157424
The TCJA questions will be the same tax questions, just adjusted for the new law.
I could see some new questions over QBI perhaps, but that can get pretty in the weeds pretty fast.
The providers all most-likely adjusted their old questions and maybe wrote some new ones. The AICPA will release new questions in April – without answer explanations.January 10, 2019 at 9:15 am #2157889
