So, I guess I'm old school but I used to love the Wiley books…which had the questions and answers/explanations in a physical book. I don't know what the mental block is that I have with these online test banks, but I just do so much better studying when I can open the book and sit there and work through problems.
I looked on Wiley, which of course is now “efficientlearning” and maybe I'm not looking in the right area? I couldn't seem to find just the book with questions/answers.
Anyone else have the mental block with the online test banks? Also, anyone know if Wiley sells just the MCQ book with the answers? If not, would you recommend a substitute that is laid out a manner like Wiley was?
Thanks for any guidance / feedback on that.August 14, 2019 at 6:59 am #2629797
I think I understand what you are talking about. While it may not be the same, but I have a hard time reading their lessons online. I need a physical book to read. As a Wiley user, I am not completely sure if they do sell a MCQ book. I would definitely suggest reaching out to them.August 14, 2019 at 9:38 am #2630085
There are books of questions you can buy on Amazon and probably other bookstores. I used the “500 Questions” series back when I first took FAR in 2014 and found it pretty good. However, it's probably a good idea to work through at least a decent amount of questions on the computer, as that's how you will see them on exam day.August 14, 2019 at 9:39 am #2630088
I have purchased the books per topic, the mcq's are in the back with the answers. You can get them on amazon.August 15, 2019 at 5:21 pm #2632908
Thank you all for your responses. Appreciate the feedback. For me, I think it's easier to study through working MCQs if I can see them laid out versus a random pull – even a random pull within a section. With the book, if I'm struggling with Partnerships – Bonus method, I can at least look at the book and work several of those in a row to get better. Some would probably say the randomness is better since that's how the test will be. But, I just feel for studying the material, being able to focus on a particular area/item works better for me.
I do have a 2016 Wiley FAR book. I can use most of that except for the areas which have changed. Leases, Revenue Recognition, Investments, etc. But, Govt., NFP, Bonds, Consolidations, Cashflow, etc. should still be good.
I will follow-up with Wiley and see what, if anything, they have available – sound advice.
Thanks again 🙂August 15, 2019 at 5:39 pm #2632950
It's a good way to start with the Wiley per chapter section in the bank, I did not find the book's sim questions to be very useful. I go over every chapter on paper and then work through the questions online.
For FAR, I don't think it had changed much. You can probably still live with it without worrying about the changes.August 19, 2019 at 7:07 pm #2642094
Thanks for the input, JFKGY. Kind of what I thought too and was kind of how I was planning to attack it.
