I briefly skimmed the REG book that I have (Roger) and then jumped into MCQ’s. I’m still largely unfamiliar with the topics although I do have some tax experience and as such, I’m guessing on most questions and trying to learn the material as I go over my questions sets.
As I continue to go through the MCQ’s, I’m getting the feeling that much of REG is memorization rather than understanding concepts. The other sections (BEC, AUD, FAR) had some sort of memorization required but there were definitely broad concepts to be understood that would help in solving and answering many questions.
With REG, there appear to be few concepts and just lots of memorization of facts. For example, how could one know that an improper debt collection under the Debt Collection Act can lead to civil penalties, aside from simply memorizing that fact?
Anyone else feel this? I’m hoping that going through hundreds of questions a week I can come to learn the material as I’m reluctant to spend time going through the book if it’s largely memorization of facts.
