Gleim Test Bank

    Hi everyone,

    Question for you. Has anyone used a Gleim CPA Review Test Bank with another review course? I have Yaeger and I was wondering to know what is the best way to utilize the test bank and how many questions should one do. It’s kind of like how people in here use Ninja. Think about how you guys use Ninja’s questions. I am trying to come up with a system where I do sets of say maybe 3, 4 or whatever and x amount of questions on each set. I want to remain consistent with my studies and believe that it’s better to do a fixed amount and move on. Please advise if you happen to know what I can do. Thank you.

    I was introduced to Gleim back in the early 2000s while in college. I have been a fan ever since. I use Gleim mostly but sometimes crack open Surgent. I've used Ninja with it. The last time I used Yaeger was in 2009 to study for FAR in addition to Gleim. I passed FAR on the first shot back in 2010. Of course, I quit studying after that.

    After taking these exams so many times, it's not about how many questions you do, it's if you understand/remember the material enough to apply it to a MCQs and the SIMs from hell.

    I'm a big fan of Gleim and I enjoy the interface.

    REG - 78
    FAR - 79
    AUD - 76
    BEC - 75

    I have been on this journey off and on for over 10 years. I think it's about time that I wrap this up.

    AUD - 10/21/16 (75----07/2010 expired)
    FAR - 10/28/16
    BEC - 11/2016
    REG - 01/2017

    I had access to the Gleim TB. I thought I would use it more, but ended up accelerating my time line aggressively, so I only got to dabble in it for problem areas.
    I did appreciate the Gleim TB and how you can focus in on certain areas that you are having trouble with.
    The main hangups would be the mnemonics being slightly different in each course, but other than that, the concepts should all be the same. You'll also have a tough time getting the course material to overlap in Gleim, vs what you are trying to study in your other review course.
    It is certainly possible though.

    Hi Recked,

    After thinking about it the last couple of days, I've decided to go all in with Gleim. After reading your message I also agree with you. Question for you. You took the exam in 10 weeks. I work full time. Would you say that 10 weeks is a good number? I was thinking about 8 because of the score release cutoff, but maybe those extra weeks could help. Let me know what you think.
