    I have the Becker books from 2018 Sep.
    Should I buy new ones for 2020?

    You should. REG and FAR will definitely have a large number of changes.

    BEC and AUD won't be as material but will definitely have updates. Sometimes 1 question is the difference and it would suck to not know what a critical audit matter is (for example).

    FAR - 80 (4/1/2019)

    BEC - 82 (9/7/2019)

    AUD - 81 (11/23/2019)

    REG - 94 (3/9/2020)

    Replacement books are something around $25 apiece. It's not a huge price all things considered. Personally I would either replace yours or just use the digital textbook on the online course (which will be up to date). Reg will certainly need to be replaced – your textbook is probably pre-TCJA. I would only order one section's replacement at a time though – more updates are coming this summer and then in December.

    AUD - 94
    BEC - 90
    FAR - 95

    Are we there yet?

    Waiting impatiently on my last score.

    REG: 74, 78 (lost credit),  83

    No way. Just took BEC last week with a book from 2017. Nothing was “out of the blue” unfamiliar. Don't listen to anyone else.

    AUD - NINJA in Training
    BEC - NINJA in Training
    FAR - 77
