When I decided to earn the EA designation, I already knew about the Gleim Review System from my colleague's high recommendation. I purchased the Gleim materials and began to learn everything through a thorough step by step process. The Gleim Review System was crucial in passing the EA exam. Its courses are designed to allow readers to gain a basic and thorough understanding of the study material. I utilized all components of the Gleim Review System in order to best prepare myself for the atmosphere of the exam as well as the material itself. I highly recommend Gleim to anyone and have already recommended the Review System to colleagues who have showed interest in the EA exam. My success has given them added trust in Gleim. In addition, given the fact that I have had such a good experience with Gleim, I will continue to use it for continuing education requirements.
Yuezhi Hu, EA, China
I passed all three parts of the Enrolled Agent exam on the first try. I am married with two kids, and work a full time job, so it was a sacrifice to stay focused on studying. I studied and passed all three tests in 9 months. Gleim's material is outstanding. As I progressed in my studying, I learned to focus more on what Gleim was suggesting to study. Also, I noticed that Gleim provides great insight into what you need to focus on to pass the EA test. If you follow Gleim's recommended strategy for studying then you will pass all three parts. Thanks Gleim for producing excellent material; I will be purchasing your material for the CPA.
Jeremey Lassiter, EA
I loved Gleim!! They are great. The materials are simple to use and I was able to do so on my tablet, my desktop, or listen to it as I drove. Being able to use the different components of the Gleim Review System all together was extremely helpful and made it easier to cement the information in my head. I read once that the more of your senses you use in studying, the easier you will remember what you have learned. I was able to incorporate reading with listening and writing by using all my Gleim study materials. I passed all three sections on the first try!
I found Gleim's audio downloads extremely helpful because I was able to listen to them during my commute to and from work every day Also, Gleim's vast multiple choice question bank was really spot on; the questions were very similar to the actual questions on the exam. I would definitely recommend Gleim to a friend studying for the EA exam, and will absolutely consider Gleim when beginning my CPA exam preparations.
Charles B. Lerman, EA
I used Gleim to prepare for all three sections of the Enrolled Agent Exam. I found the staff that I worked with to be very courteous and supportive during my exam preparation. By following the Gleim Review System, I was able to pass all three sections on the first try. The Gleim Review System definitely worked for me.
Carl Esposito, EA
Prior to Gleim I tried a number of tax prep courses, but they lacked structure. I really like the way Gleim is organized and the structure suited me well. There is so much content in the tax code, that I was overwhelmed. Gleim was able to break it down into manageable units, and help me stay focused on the task at hand. Gleim also suited my study habits because of the ease of access; I could pull up Gleim either at the office, home, or cell phone. I have already recommended Gleim to the intern in our office who is getting ready to sit for the CPA exam and to another person in our office who is going to sit for the EA exam.
Sherry Cavender, EA
The Gleim Review gave me the ability to pass all three parts of the EA Exam on the first try. I used the different components to maximize my study times. I also found the question bank challenged my knowledge, built my confidence regarding each chapter, and prepared me for each exam. Thank you Gleim!
The Gleim Review System provided me with the guidance that I needed in order to set aside enough time each week to prepare while maintaining my normal work schedule. Compared to my previous experiences taking the EA exam, Gleim was able to prepare me for the exam and help me pass. I would recommend this system to anyone; this is the only method to use. I have already instructed my employees to purchase and use Gleim, and I will use Gleim for any other professional credentials that I may seek.
I passed all three Enrolled Agent exams on the first try over the last 13 months, which I never expected to do before I started the Gleim EA Review System. I really appreciated the customer service; I think it is a very important factor when choosing study materials. The materials are on point and reasonable. The Gleim EA Review System is all you need to pass the exams.
The Gleim study materials for the Enrolled Agent exam helped me to be successful in passing all three Special Enrollment Examinations (SEEs) on the first attempt. I learned so much by being able to utilize the information I read in the modules. I think the feedback was a big part of my success; it allowed me to look at what I got right or wrong and gave me the reasoning behind the correct answer. Additionally, the breakdown of the units made it easier to stay within my allotted studying schedule. This allowed me to learn how to answer the questions more efficiently. I tell anyone that asks that the Gleim Review System is a more thorough study program, which helps you to actually learn the material.
I passed each part of the SEE exam on my first try thanks to Gleim! It is a lot to learn, but with the Gleim review, you can be assured that you will know 100% of the material. Overall, Gleim is unquestionably the best review system to use for taking the SEE exam and I would highly recommend Gleim to anybody considering becoming an EA.
Marc Spevak, EA
The Gleim Review System was very thorough and covered every detail of the exam. It helped me to study anytime, anywhere, and at my convenience. The system itself is easy to understand and navigate. Overall, I am very satisfied with Gleim and I thank Gleim for designing the self study course. I would certainly recommend Gleim Enrolled Agent review system to all who are preparing for the exam. I am extremely satisfied with all aspects of Gleim.
I think the way the Gleim review covers the subject matter allows you to understand basic concepts by providing basic examples. The system helped me to understand the problems, underlying concepts, and their applications. In light of this approach, I found the study mode rather valuable. So if you dedicate enough time for the review system, you have a good chance of passing the exam.
Mykola Sherengovyi, EA
Thanks to the Gleim Review System, I passed all three parts of the EA Review System on my first attempt. It is easy to use and very well organized. The combination of the different parts of the review system reinforced everything I learned throughout my studies. Additionally, the study planner helped me set realistic study targets while keeping me motivated towards my goal of completing all three exams in 6 months. I highly recommend the Gleim System to anyone considering taking the EA Exam.
Jonathan Morgan, EA
The Gleim Review System was very thorough and covered every detail of the exam. It was very easy to understand and helped me to study anytime, anywhere, and at my convenience. The online access provided me with study sessions that gave me a feeling of being in a classroom with the presence of an instructor. The suggested learning steps were also well-designed. The hidden treasure of Gleim is in its personal counselors. Overall, I am very satisfied with Gleim and its personal counselors. I would certainly recommend Gleim to all of my friends, and I am sure they will take my advice knowing that Gleim helped me to pass each exam on the first try.
Thanh Tran, EA
I would be ungrateful if I didn't take the time to express my gratitude to my Personal Counselors for their help to get me though the exams. I do admire the team effort. Whenever I send an email request, I generally get a response during the same day. The audio reviews are excellent; you will be doing yourself a great injustice if you don't use them. They are truly helpful. The Gleim review program prepared me beyond the areas tested on the exam. I will definitely recommend Gleim to anyone who may be interested.
I have used the Gleim system for two certifications: the CMA and just recently the Enrolled Agent (EA). I highly recommend the Gleim system for its comprehensiveness and ease of use. The online testing material is first rate and greatly facilitated my attainment of these certifications. If you are serious about gaining professional certifications, Gleim is the only way to go. I would definitely use Gleim in keeping up with my professional skills using Gleim's CPE materials.
Jim Carr, CMA, EA
Passing the Enrolled Agent Exam is all about preparation. Choose the wrong prep course and it can make you feel like you will never be able
to pass the exam. I know this from experience. This time I chose the Gleim system and the results were remarkably different. How different
you might ask? I am proud to say that I passed all three parts of the Enrolled Agent Exam the first time around. What I liked most about the
Gleim system is that it simulated the exam environment throughout each study module. This allowed me to work on time management and exposed me to the testing environment. In addition, the feedback that you receive in the study sessions helps to strengthen your knowledge of taxation
concepts. When you find a system that works, you stick with it. I would highly recommend the Gleim system to anyone looking to get that certification that will move you ahead in life. Once I am enrolled to practice before the IRS, I look forward to taking the continuing education courses offered by Gleim so that I can keep my Enrolled Agent status.
Keith Cox, EA
The practice tests are very well explained along with the knowledge transfer outlines and Audio visual presentations. All the personal counselors have been extremely prompt and helpful in guiding me through the process. Overall the Gleim review material is really helpful.
The Gleim Review was a great benefit and the only thing I used to prepare for the EA exam. The review system is laid out extremely well and prepares you for each exam. You will pass if you do your due diligence. I highly recommend using Gleim; if anyone wants to have confidence in passing the EA exam, the Gleim review is the way to go.
Doug Kelley, EA
By using the Gleim study planner, I was able to pass Part 1 of the EA exam in 4 weeks, Part 3 in 7 weeks, and the hardest of all, Part 2 in 8 weeks. With the Gleim EA Review System, you not only gain the ability to pass the exam, but actually learn the concepts as you study. The
practice quizzes and the test bank are a great way to learn and reinforce the material studied. Consider the Gleim review system as an investment in yourself and your future. Overall, it is a great way to learn taxes and pass the EA exams at the same time.
Joseph Meyer, EA
The best part of the Gleim EA Review System is the ability to access my online account on my own schedule. Finding time to study is often difficult
with a full-time job and a family. Gleim Review System gave me the confidence boost needed to advance my career in the field of individual and business income taxes, by confirming and expanding on the knowledge that I already knew. I would definitely recommend Gleim to others, and I plan to use Gleim again for future studies!
Natasha Cannon, EA
Gleim EA Review material is amazing. It covers the exhaustive IRS Rules and Regulations and Procedures in its outlines and audios which are easy to understand and helpful in answering the questions in the EA examination correctly. My dedicated counselor is dynamic. She provided me a well defined plan of study and motivated me to work hard by monitoring my progress and strengthening the preparation for the examination. I passed all the 3 SEE examinations to become an EA at first attempt within the scheduled time frame. Thanks Gleim for an excellent study program.
Gleim helped me pass my EA exam in one try. Based on my experience with Gleim, it is one of the best study guides I ever used.
Hong Liu, EA
The Gleim program prepared me and helped me in passing the examination in my first attempt. The system was particularly helpful as it gave practical examples of how the tax law worked and helped me get used to the trickier questions presented during the examination. I will definitely recommend Gleim to others pursuing the EA certification.
Yat Ping T.
I purchased the Gleim program mid-March of this year, started studying on April 16th, and took my final exam on August 11th. I successfully passed all three parts on the first try and within a four month time frame. You must be fully committed to the program and willing to devote the time and energy necessary to be successful. My advice to potential candidates is to follow the suggested program step by step, do not skip anything, follow the guide entirely, and you will be well prepared come exam time.
Von Dyke, EA
First of all I would like to take a moment to thank the entire team of Gleim and every one involved in making this system a success. I recommend using the Gleim System for Success and the study planner. I passed all 3 parts of EA in the first attempt. You should complete all aspects of the Gleim Review, but you can have our own tweaks for the study plan so that it fits with your schedule.
The Gleim system was outstanding. It allowed me to pass all three parts of the Special Enrolled Agent (EA) exam on the first try across the span of 100 days. I utilized all aspects of the system, including the textbooks, the online content, the online quizzes, and the online tests. Since I took the exams during the summer months, I also heavily utilized the audio content in the car while driving to business meetings and vacation destinations. It facilitated a very productive use of my time. The Gleim system provided me with a great understanding of the subject matter. It also offered excellent test-taking strategies through its periodic study tips which gave me the utmost confidence going into each exam. Finally, I also regularly utilized the service allowing questions to be addressed by an expert one-on-one. That enhanced my understanding of some of the more challenging and complex items in the curriculum. I couldn't have done it without Gleim. I would definitely recommend Gleim to friends and colleagues.
Steven Tozier, EA
A combination of focused study and the quality review and training materials provided by Gleim provided me with the knowledge to pass all three exams, each on the first attempt. Any questions that I submitted during the course of my studies were answered to my satisfaction quickly. I would recommend this review system to my friends without reservation and will be looking to Gleim in the future for CPE.
Charles Simonds, EA
The Gleim system allowed me to study at my own pace and how I wanted to study. I have encouraged all of my coworkers to use the Gleim system if they choose to go for their EA. I would definitely consider using the Gleim system for the CPA exam if I ever choose to go that direction.
Brenda C, EA
As a busy accounting professional, I didn't have a lot of time to study. The Gleim EA program quickly showed me the areas that I was weakest so I could focus my efforts on those areas. The Test Prep allowed me to go right to a PDF section of the book from a question that I missed so I could quickly read the areas that I needed to focus in more detail. Thanks to the Gleim EA course, I passed all three parts of the EA exam the first time. I have used Gleim before for the RTRP and am about to start my pursuit of the CPA. Because of the value that Gleim offers in comparison to their competitors, I can't imagine ever using anyone else.
Randall Daugherty, EA
The Gleim EA review course, parts one, two, and three, helped me to achieve success in passing all three parts of the IRS's special enrollment exam. I spent six months and followed the instructions. By the end of the six months, with some time and dedication, I had enough knowledge to get my certificate. The combination of audiovisual, true false, multiple-choice quizzes, and getting my nose in the book really did it for me. Also, the analysis of my practice exams was very helpful to identify weak areas before I went to take each part of the exam. I could quickly nail down which spots needed special attention and which spots needed a simple review, before walking in on test day.
Adam Lucas, EA
After scouring many options regarding which company/school/publication I should use, I finally decided to choose Gleim Publications for the EA Review. Gleim has a very organized and methodical presentation in the outline of their material. The content of the material is structured in a way to help the student digest the core concepts and better understand the principles and policies, and the rules and regulations as it pertains to each learning objective. In the process, it is learning, absorbing, and refreshing at the same time. I strongly recommend Gleim Publications to any potential student desirous of improving their academic or professional credentials.
Bheeshan Mahadeo, EA
I passed all three parts of the EA Exam on my first attempt thanks to the Gleim Materials. Gleim review material is the best in the market by far. The material is easy to understand and very much useful. In addition, customer support is top notch. I highly recommend the Gleim System to anyone interested in taking the EA Exam.
Ben Sanati, EA
The Gleim Review System is exceptional and allowed me to pass the Enrolled Agent (EA) Exam on my first try! While concerned each time I walked into the testing center, by the time I had completed the first few questions, I was confident that I had been thoroughly prepared by Gleim. Actually, the official test was somewhat easier than what I experienced in the Gleim System. And with the time management system taught by Gleim, I always had time to go back and review every question. I found that using both the book and online system provided the best coverage and, used in tandem, reinforced the material substantially. I would certainly tell my friends who were pursuing one of the certifications offered by Gleim that they couldn't miss if using the Gleim Review System. I intend to use Gleim for ongoing CPE requirements as well. Thanks, Gleim!
I purchased the Gleim Review System for the EA exam. The program was very organized and allowed me to follow a complete structured learning procedure and pattern. The Gleim review system benefited me personally because I was able to log in to my account at anytime that was convenient with my work schedule. The system gave instant feedback with correct and incorrect answers and gave multiple situations to better understand the material. I would definitely recommend the Gleim Review System to anyone seeking to pass the EA exam. It is easy to navigate through and very informative. I would use Gleim again for any other courses in the future.
The Gleim materials and online practice tests really helped me prepare for the EA exam. Gleim ensured my success at passing all three exams the first time. I highly recommend Gleim and will be using it again for another certification.
Using the Gleim EA Review System, I was well prepared and able to pass all three parts of the SEE on the first try. Actually, I was so over-prepared, I was able to finish the exams in about half the time, affording me plenty of time to review - better to be over-prepared than overwhelmed. There is a lot of material to digest, but the Gleim EA Review System does a great job of making the material manageable. The System led me step-by-step to understanding the material, then provided me with ample practice tests and performance analysis. They even provided nearly the whole book in audio format, which allowed me to listen to the units on my long commute using my iPhone. In addition, my Personal Counselor was encouraging, available, and helpful; and the expert staff provided answers to my questions in a timely manner. I will definitely use Gleim for CPE and if I decide to tackle the CPA exam. Why risk the time and money it costs to fail, when Gleim will help you pass. Thanks to the whole Gleim staff and thanks for the EA Review System.
Donald Martin, EA
I am a father of three young children and got started in my career field later in life. To say that I needed a flexible, structured system to help me achieve my enrolled agent status would be an understatement. It was a challenge finding the right fit. What I found was the Gleim system. Using the Gleim system gave me the framework I needed as a student and a father. They have an amazing combination of materials in multiple formats that made it easy to suit my specific learning style and accommodate my hectic schedule. They also had amazing support systems in place that was a key factor in my success. I could not have done it without their self study testing system and the encouragement I received from my Personal Counselor. I am very thankful that I found Gleim and I will be using them in the future for my CPE needs.
Daniel J. Keeler, EA
Gleim was exactly what I needed to pass all three exams the first time. Customer service was friendly, helpful, and prompt. I purchased the entire course along with the books, which came in handy when I did not have computer access. I highly recommend Gleim to anyone who wishes to become an Enrolled Agent.
Cherry Focht, EA
Personally, I found the study unit outlines to be immensely helpful in distilling complex tax law, rules and regulations. The study unit outlines were also instrumental in helping me to focus on the critical aspects of core concepts. The extensive GLEIM test bank was also essential in reinforcing the material learned in each study unit. The GLEIM system benefited me personally as it provided a streamlined, but comprehensive, study program that enabled me to pass each part of the EA exam on the first attempt within under 6 months. I would absolutely recommend the GLEIM EA study system to others I know, who are interested in an effective and efficient system designed to help students pass all 3 EA test sections on the first try and within a limited period of time. Given the incredible experience and success I have had with GLEIM for the EA study system, I would certainly use GLEIM again for future test preparation needs. Personally, I found the Personal Counselor to be an added bonus of the overall study program. The Personal Counselor was there every step of the way to answer questions, allay concerns and provide guidance. The Personal Counselor is an active advocate of GLEIM students and a very important component of the overall study system.
Grant L. Sanders, EA
I found all the online materials and practice questions quite helpful. I would definitely recommend Gleim materials to all professionals who aspire to be an EA. If I write my CPA exams I will choose Gleim.
Narendra Kumar Kaliki, EA, India
Gleim review system was very user friendly and easy to navigate. I liked that everything was online and I could access it from anywhere and anytime. I am a tax accountant and a mother of two, so studying came at small intervals and at odd times, but the review system helped me stay organized and focused. Gleim is a great study aide to prep for the EA exam. The questions are great and there are plenty of practice questions. Gleim has two great features, the study planner and a guide of how to use their review system efficiently to get maximum results. I used the suggested review methodology and it was very effective.
Hemali Patel, EA
I passed part one September 21, 2013. I passed part two December 3, 2013. I passed part three at the beginning of January 2014. I passed all three parts on the first try and within 4 months. It would have been impossible for me to pass these exams without the Gleim Review materials.
I am pleased to inform you that as of today I have been successful in passing all three parts of the EA exam and each one on the first time. I
am truly grateful to Gleim and their professional team that guided me through a subject that was totally foreign to me. (No longer foreign, now.) I really enjoyed studying for the exam as the course was enjoyable, stimulating, and encouraging.
I used another review course the first two times I took the EA Part 2 business exam. I failed both times. I was coming to the end of my two year window to pass all the exams. I decided to give Gleim a try. I finally passed Part 2 on the first try, after using Gleim as it was designed. I am so relieved that I decided to switch my studies to Gleim. I would recommend it to anyone.
Gleim is the best thing that happened to me! I started my journey to accomplish my EA cert in July 2012 when I passed my first part. Last month on Dec 18th, I passed my third and last exam (all on my first try), while juggling between the full time job and married life with kids. Before starting the EA, I used a couple of other review courses for CPA exams and comparing those review courses to Gleim is like comparing day and night. Gleim books, Gleim online and test prep were very organized with every new topic, specifically the lengthy business taxation portion, was explained in a piece meal fashion for me to grasp easily. I sure would recommend Gleim review to any one looking to prepare for EA. Whenever I called Gleim's office the people working for Gleim were always helpful and my personal Counselor gave me encouragement during my process. I will for sure use Gleim for my CE courses.
Seth Mohammad, EA
I want to take a moment to thank the Gleim team for the great courses. I passed all three parts of the EA exam the first time. Having a full time
job, and with English as my third language It took me 11 months to finish the whole course. I will definitely recommend Gleim courses to whoever
wants to take the EA exam in the future.
I am so grateful for your program. It prepared me for the exams so well that I would recommend it to anyone. It is a tough course for sure but if you follow the study plan, there is little chance of failure. Thank you, thank you for the program and your team's support. I particularly loved the
quick responses to my challenges when I thought I had answered a question correctly but it was in fact misinterpreted by me and it was explained
succinctly and understandably. You guys are great!!
Janet Hanks, EA
The system was great, very user friendly and detailed. I used another system before Gleim when I was preparing for the CPA exam and compared to that system I found Gleim to be much more interactive and the explanations are more thorough. I plan on still taking the CPA exam and definitely will be using Gleim. I would definitely recommend this system to my friends or colleagues. Once you do your due diligence and stick to your schedule you are bound to succeed, I passed all three parts of the EA exam on the first try. Persistence and dedication is the key, it is hard work, but like most things you will get out of it whatever you put in.
Carol Wysocki, MBA, MAFM
I would not have been able to complete my EA without the Gleim program. Before I started using Gleim, I tried studying with the past EA exam questions available through the IRS website. Gleim's materials are not only relevant, but they also are annually updated to the pertinent tax year. Of course, it took a lot of work and time to complete the program, but the reward was that I was able to pass each section the first time I took it. It was also nice to have my personal counselor and cheerleader on my side rooting me on as I completed each section. She kept me on course by checking up on my progress and encouraging me on my path. If someone were serious about wanting to get their EA, I would definitely recommend the Gleim program. It is a very direct way to find success!
Barbara Patterson, EA, Tucson, Arizona
The Gleim program is awesome and one of kind, courteous and helpful staff made it possible for me to pass my last part of the EA exam. Because of Gleim, I will be getting my Enrolled Agent certification within 30-60 days. Thank you Gleim and all the hardworking people in the company.
Nick Khawaja, EA
Just a note to let you know, that with the help of your online and book classes, I have passed all 3 parts of the EA exam. I also took your RTRP prep course and passed that last year. In addition to a competitor's review course, I took your EA review and it was much more comprehensive. It was well written and the online testing really helped. Thank you so much.
Judy Jaye, RTRP, EA
I think the program well prepares individuals for the EA Exam. In fact, I think I was over-prepared which is not a bad thing. The knowledge will be valuable when dealing with my clients. It was a lot of work but all things that are worthwhile take a certain amount of effort. I am very pleased with the program!
Gleim was a great help in achieving success with the Enrolled Agents exam. I did not want to spend any more time than necessary to get ready for the exam. I purchased the Gleim program in August and began studying right away. The different types of approaches to the information was great. The testing center allowed four hours for each exam. I arrived for my first part, began at 8:00 am and was done by 9:30 am. Similar times happened for the other two parts. I attribute this to the familiarity I felt with the test, as it is formatted exactly like Gleim's practice tests, the knowledge I gained through Gleim and the confidence the practice exams gave me. I honestly would not prepare for the test any other way. If I ever face another exam that Gleim could help me prepare for, I would definitely use the Gleim program.
Tricia Ditto, EA
I used the Gleim series to pass the Certified Management Accountant (CMA) exam in 2000 and have used it again to pass part 2 of the Enrolled Agent (EA) exam in 2013. I have found all products of Gleim to be comprehensive, easy to use and the best source available on the market today for test preparation. You can not get better value for your money.
Gene Sterett , CMA
I passed all three SEE exams first time out last year using Gleim! It totally prepared me for the exams and I would definitely recommend it to anyone considering becoming an EA.
Shannon Glasner, EA
THANK YOU! I passed all three parts of the EA exam on the first sitting and I wouldn't have been able to accomplish this without the EA Review System. The online materials were instrumental to my success and my personal counselor, was AWESOME! Thank you. Four months from when I purchased the Gleim system until I passed the final exam - SWEET!!
A fellow tax pro recommended Gleim as a good way to pass the 3-part exam, as she had used the materials and she passed all parts of the exam. I took her advice and subscribed to Gleim. It was one of the best decisions I have ever made. Gleim's study materials included online and
booklet tax information for each part of the exam broken down into study units. I found the random practice quizzes to be especially helpful for
each study unit. Also, I had a few questions about the study material as I went through it. Gleim personnel always got back to me in a prompt manner with answers to my questions. I highly recommend Gleim to any person who wants to become an Enrolled Agent.
Jeffrey S. Norris, MBA, EA
Thank You! The study material is spot on. Coming from a different educational background I was expecting the worst. I used the complete Gleim EA online & book package and have now passed parts 1 & 2 on the first sittings! Watch out 3rd test here I come (with Gleim).
I passed all three parts of the EA Exam on the first attempt. This was done in 89 days. I am thrilled. The study schedule that was provided by my personal counselor helped me establish a pace needed to achieve my goals. The EA Exam is designed to be tough, so no study program is going to make it seem easy. Yet with the Gleim program, I was prepared and successful. I chose the Gleim program over a couple others I was considering specifically because the audio review was a part of the Gleim program. This feature was very valuable to me. The audio review allowed me to study while keeping my hands free. I studied in the garden picking green beans, in the kitchen canning peaches, and in the car. I highly recommend the Gleim EA program.
I used the Gleim books & Test Prep to study for the SEE. I passed all the 3 parts on the first try in a matter of 6 months. I found the Gleim books to be laid out in an extremely logical manner & the matter explained in detail. The Test Prep emulated the actual exams so closely that there were no surprises at the actual exam site. The feedback from the Test Prep was very accurate hence it helped to get back to the books & study for the matter I was not doing well on. Thank you Gleim! I recommend this system to all who are thinking of taking the SEE and are comfortable with self-study.
Manasa Nadig, EA
Gleim EA Review is very thorough and covers all the areas of Federal tax law that is tested on the EA exam. In fact, I found Gleim's study questions to be harder that the actual questions on the exam. Accordingly, I wholeheartedly recommended Gleim EA for anyone thinking about earning the IRS EA designation. Even if you've been out of college for over 20 years as myself, Gleim's review course allows you to study at your own pace. Gleim's counselor's are always available to provide the resources needed for explanations to study material or test questions in the online review course.
Duane Williams, EA
Passed all parts of EA at first try. Had no prior education or back ground in income taxes. Need I say more?
I just passed Part 1 of the EA exam and I am thrilled! The Gleim review system not only prepared me for success on the exam, it has increased and solidified my knowledge of personal income tax preparation and for that I am grateful! Thanks to everyone at Gleim that contributed to my success. Looking forward to preparing for Part 2!
Gleim was with me all the way. I passed each section on the first try!!! When I had to reschedule my last test, they worked with me to keep me going until the testing date. My personal counselor responded promptly and was there for me when I needed her. I would recommend Gleim for anyone's testing needs!
I cleared all three parts of EA exam on my first attempt. This could become achievable ONLY by an optimistic and opportune approach from my
counselor and her committed team.
Thanks to Gleim I was able to pass all three EA exams in less than 90 days. The Gleim technique, as well as the helpful staff, gave me the upper-hand advantage in succeeding in all three EA exams. I will continue to promote Gleim to other prospective coworkers as it is the best prep course out there for the EA examination.
Using Gleim's system, I passed all 3 EA Exams the first time I sat for them. With such a broad range of tax topics covered in the 3 EA exams, Gleim's system was extremely comprehensive, covering virtually all of the exam's tax topics. Although it would seem impossible for Gleim's Review System to prepare every EA candidate for every possible variation of tax questions and scenarios, there were very few questions on the actual EA exams that were totally foreign to me. Even those tax questions with which I was unfamiliar, Gleim's comprehensive EA Review System prepared me to logically process the information provided, and ascertain the most likely correct answer. Frankly, I don't know how anyone could pass any of the EA exams without the proper preparation, and Gleim's EA Review System provided that. Thank you for your assistance through the entire EA exam process, and I look forward to using Gleim's EA Continuing Education programs to fulfill my annual CE requirements in the future.
Larry Drinkwater, EA
Thank you so much for your help with the EA study materials! I passed all 3 sections of the EA and am glad I used Gleim.
Thanks Gleim for your help, study methods, and recommendations. I am glad to say that by following your advise and your study materials I was well prepared to pass all three parts of the exam on my first attempt! Now I am on to receive my Enrolled Agent Certification and practice before the IRS.
Nelson Rodriguez, EA
Gleim helped me achieve success with my EA exam. The software driven review and practice tests are unmatched. I experimented with a couple of different types of reviews but when I got serious about studying, I only used Gleim. I quickly found that not all review systems are equal in quality. Gleim made learning the material manageable and definitely prepared me for the difficult tests that awaited me. I appreciated the ability to customize my study and testing times to focus on my weak areas.
Cyndi Cantrell, EA
Gleim is great. I passed all parts of the exam on the first try. I highly recommend.
Hyun Jung Kim
I want to thank one and all at Gleim. If I could only use one word to describe GLEIM it would be CLASS. Their EA Study Program builds self-confidence and just as important the counselors are available at your beck and call. I'm 71 years old and very thankful to my Enrolled Agent cousin who highly recommended Gleim.
I passed all 3 parts of the Enrolled Agent Exam on the first seating. During my critical exam time, Gleim Counselors stay constantly in touch with me and promptly return my emails and phone calls. The best thing is the Personal Counselor assigned to you and you feel like you are getting 24/7 online service for the counselor. I am a Charted Accountant from India and new to EA examination in USA. Most certainly I will continue to use Gleim material for my CPA exam also. A big thanks to Gleim for their awesome material.
Dilip Shah EA
I can't say enough good things about Gleim. I passed the RTRP exam and the three parts of the EA exam, all the first time, because of Gleim. Personal counselors are available to answer a multitude of various questions. Gleim has a great system, use it, you'll be glad you did. The student decides how fast or slow to go through the materials. My Gleim counselor was great, always professional, courteous, and just plain nice to work with. Also, when she was not available I spoke with another counselor who was also super nice and on point.
Mason Wristen, EA
The Gleim Review System was great. It allowed me to work on multiple test questions by using the Test Prep software in addition to the questions that were available in the online classroom. I found that even though you read the material in the book you may not always retain or understand what read until after you have worked several questions relating to a particular topic over & over again. The most beneficial part of the course was working as many questions as possible, that was the best preparation that could be done for the exam. I have been preparing tax returns for over 15 years and even though I know the rules & regulations, I, like many preparers have come to rely on computer software that calculates the returns. So one of the biggest things that Gleim did for me was to teach me again how to manually calculate certain formulas that you needed to know for the exam. I will recommend Gleim to others who I know are planning to take the EA exam. I am planning to study for the CPA exam again and I think this time I will try Gleim's materials instead of the other providers, which I have used in the past.
Shannon Williams, EA
I passed the EA Part 1 Individuals today. Gleim materials are amazing. This makes 10 exams in a row passed with Gleim! 1 more and I am done.
John Dykeman, CMA, CPA
I passed all 3 parts on my first attempt. I officially became an EA on November 19th of last year. Thank you for having a wonderful well
rounded program. I could not have done it without you.
Debra H. Curran, EA
Thanks to Gleim I passed each EA exam on my very first attempt. The Gleim system completely laid out my study plan for me down to how many hours I would need to complete my preparation. All I had to do was follow it. I would strongly recommend the Gleim EA Review Course to anyone seeking to pass the EA exam. The only caveat? The Gleim process feels really odd at first. Stick with it. It won't take you long to realize how powerful it really is. Once you get past your initial trepidation you'll be thrilled with the speed at which you learn the content and the comfort you feel with the exam process.
Mauricio Martinez EA
My experience was good. I tried to pass the test back in 2010 but failed horribly. I started with Part 2 for business and spent 4 months reading the whole 600 pages of that book, but at the time I finished I forgot the first chapters. My approach for 2012 was different. It took me about 1 1/2 months to complete the (12 chapters) first book, then passed the EA test at the first attempt. For the second part, I had the same approach, again it took me about 1 1/2 to 2 months to complete this book (20 chapters). I scheduled my test for 2 weeks in advance and I only reviewed the chapters where I obtained 60% or less during my initial review. I found out that the real test is much easier than this book as the questions of this book are much harder than the real Prometric test. I passed on the first attempt too. For the part 3, I only studied for 1 week with the same method as the previous two parts. I completed the 7 chapters in 1 week or so. I passed this last test at first attempt.
I find Gleim's new format incredible, (studying for SEE3 now). I give your study guides all the credit for making SEE1 and SEE2 a breeze to pass. I have seen your competitor's material and they are truly no competition. Thank you very much.
Overall I like the multiple delivery methods of the Gleim EA program. I listened in my car, I could use the internet if I had access, but I used the standalone download almost exclusively. I found it was the most convenient for me and it was the method that let me have a comprehensive review over and over.
Jean F., EA
I just passed Parts One, Two, and Three of the Special Enrollment Exam! I have such a sense of relief and accomplishment. The Gleim materials were paramount to my success. The Gleim resources made the material organized and manageable. It would be easy to become overwhelmed with the scope of material the SEE covers, but Gleim allows candidates to take it one step at a time. I passed all parts on the first attempt, so I can't argue with these amazing results. Thanks so much; Gleim was well worth it!
Fantastic study program. I passed all 3 parts of EA exam in 90 days thanks to the program! Everyone from Gleim that I had contact with during that time was professional and very helpful. Thanks again!
Thank you for your support, interest, and counseling during the last four and a half months as I prepared for and succeeded in passing each of the 3 parts of the EA examination on my first attempt. The materials and resources provided really do prepare individuals for success. I intend on completing the evaluation on the website and to tell anyone who will listen how well your team does in preparing candidates for this difficult task.
Lawrence Rosenberg, EA
I recently passd all three parts of the SEE examination using the GLEIM Review System. Every part was passed on the first try. The GLEIM Review gave me a systematic and comprehensive flow for learning the required knowledge. The Test and Study sessions in the Test Prep Software were great in drilling the information in to my understanding and retention capacity. I could not have done it without the GLEIM Review. Most certainly I will continue to use GLEIM in my professional career as an enrolled agent.
I have been preparing taxes for 10 years before deciding to apply for the IRS Enrolled Agent designation. I thought my experience would easily prepare me for the EA exam. I took Exam 1, Individuals, without any study aids. While I did pass, I left the exam feeling a bit defeated and insecure about my knowledge. I knew I needed a professional study plan for EA exam sections 2 and 3. After reviewing several companies, I chose Gleim and am so glad I did! The Gleim EA program was efficient, concise and very thorough. I followed my counselor's study plan advice and passed both sections on my first attempt. I am certain I would not have done so without the Gleim materials. The details of knowledge needed for the tests far exceeded my knowledge base. Additionally, I feel I am now a much more knowledgeable tax professional due to the Gleim materials. Thank you Gleim for making this effort doable and successful!
Christine Kuglin, CFE
I passed all the three parts of the Enrolled Agent (EA) exam in 6 months time frame while working full time. I could not accomplish this without the Gleim Review System and personal touch of the counselor assigned to me. My success at passing the exams on the first attempt is due to the fact that I was able to follow the structure that was outlined by the personal counselor for each part of the exam. I was able to devote sufficient time to review the materials and then take the online exams. It was hard to juggle this with a full time job. The review material was detailed enough to pass the exam and it would be difficult to pass without them. Gleim was recommended to me by a friend and I would certainly do the same after the experience I had. At this point I am not sure what additional certifications I am going to take or need. However, when the time comes I will certainly turn to Gleim to help me prepare for those certifications.
Thanks to the Gleim Program, I passed all 3 parts the first time. I found the material informative and concise. I felt prepared before sitting for each part of the exam. As long as you follow the advice from the Gleim Counselor and follow it, you will have no problems passing the exam.
I did pass Part 2 of the Enrolled Agent Exam 10-26-12. Thanks to Gleim for the book, audios, and online course. The Test Prep was very helpful. I could not have passed the exam without the information from Gleim. I am very thankful. I appreciate everything Gleim did for me. Thank you again!!
Judy Von Ruden
Thanks to the Gleim Program, I passed all 3 parts the first time. I also attended a 10 week course sponsored by our local EA chapter that used all the Gleim materials. I found the class very helpful as I needed added discipline to meet my deadline. I passed Parts I and III over the summer but needed more study time for Part II. In retrospect, I learned a lot more about tax than I needed for the exam. Overall, I am very satisfied with the Gleim process and am glad I invested the time and money to pass these exams.
After passing the exam I would like to say thank you!!! Using your course prepared me for the unexpected. I felt comfortable and confident every step of the way. I like how if I had any questions I got replies quickly by phone/e-mail. Thanks again!
It is well organized and reasonably brief. I prepare tax returns for individuals and small businesses. After completing this study material, I feel very confident in providing individual tax related advice.
I am totally satisfied and proud to be working with the Gleim team in my efforts to become an enrolled agent. I have only praise for the Gleim team. I have had positive experiences in all areas of my interaction with Gleim (customer service, product content, personal counselor support and technical assistance). Thank you!
This was a complex exam and at times the subject matter was very challenging. However, the study material was necessary, comprehensive and adequate to prepare me for success. There are no shortcuts and Gleim helps you to understand some of the most complicated and illogical concepts known to Federal Taxation. It works and I passed all 3 exams on the first try. Thank you Gleim.
It was great speaking to you yesterday. When I was an undergrad at FIU, one of our accounting professors had us use a Gleim book for certain concepts because it explained them much better than our textbook for the course. At that time I really liked the format that Gleim used. A few years later when I needed a study course for the Enrolled Agent's Exam, I looked around and rediscovered Gleim. Remembering the clear and concise format from before, I ordered the EA Review from Gleim. I passed all three parts with flying colors! So now I use Gleim for all of my CPE needs and it has always been an excellent learning source; the concepts are presented in an easy to comprehend way and the customer service is the best I've ever experienced. Thank you Dr. Gleim!
Miriam Grossman-Rodriguez, E.A.,
The Gleim Online was well organized and not too overwhelming. It laid out a systematic study plan that allowed me to study at my own pace and provided me with more than enough information to pass the exam. Personally, being an Enrolled Agent provides stature within the profession and has given me credibility amongst my peers. I would definitely recommend this program to anyone who wants to enjoy the benefit of studying at their own pace. I plan on using Gleim again at some point in the future to obtain my CPA designation.
Jeff Leafer, EA
I wanted to tell you that between 6/22 and 8/28 I passed the RTRP and all three parts of the SEE on the first attempt. I passed the RTRP on 6/22 and received my certificate dated 6/29. I was very happy and It was very gratifying to accomplish at my age - I haven't studied for or sat for any significant exam for more years that I can even remember. As I said before, I purchased four different EA and RTRP study programs, including Gleim. After examining all four, I chose to use Gleim because of its structure, software, and guided repetition methodology. Your methodology, the presentation, the software, the "system for success" explanatory booklet, and the comprehensiveness of the subject matter made the Gleim "system" the easy choice. I followed the advice in Study Unit 6, "How to Take the EA Exam", and it worked beautifully for me. When I sat for the RTRP exam, I was happily surprised to find the IRS questions were far easier and less complex than the Gleim questions. I got through the 120 questions in forty minutes, reviewed two questions I had marked, changed one after checking the reference, and was finished in one hour. I followed your advice again as I took the three parts of the SEE, and the longest completion time for the most difficult part for me (Part II) was two hours and ten minutes. The cost for the entire Gleim system was worth every penny and I consider the money well spent. To sum it up, the Gleim system stood out from all the others I looked at, and I consider it a major factor in helping me to achieve my "full IRS-credentialed" status in such a short time period.
B. Goldberg, EA, RTRP
I, Chris Mayone, became an Enrolled Agent (EA) almost 3 years ago, and passed all parts of the EA exam the first time. Gleim has a great product,
system, and superior service. An example of the Gleim superior service is my Gleim Representative. She always provides service long after a sale is made, exceeding any expectations I have of customer service. With service like this, I would not consider going to any of the competition.
Chris Mayone, EA
Just wanted to let you know that I took the part 2 test and PASSED!!!! I worked through all the study sessions on the two weeks that I had and it was enough to push me over the hump. Just so you know I used a competitor to pass part one and three and there is no comparison the Gleim is hands down a better system. I really liked how it took the different aspects and broke them down into a more manageable sub chapters. I would recommend Gleim to anyone that is going to take the EA test. Thanks again for putting together a great study guide.
Steve Savell, CRTP
What I liked most about Gleim was the completeness of the review, the correct way to study by using The System for Success, the myriad of questions to prepare you for the 3 parts of the SEE (EA Exam). The system helped me achieve a level of expertise that my clients will appreciate. In only 11 months from the time I received the complete system until the final answer on the SEE Exam, Gleim provided me with my Personal Counselor and the confidence to ascertain this designation. I have already recommended the Gleim Review to others who want to take their career to another level. I have used Gleim for the CPE and at this time I am using Gleim CPA Review.
Peter Gonzalez, B.Acc, M.Tax, EA
The Gleim system helped me pass all three parts of the Enrolled Agent exam with ease. After passing, their well-written materials make a great quick reference guide in practice. I strongly recommend Gleim; great system, great people, great success.
It is with great pleasure that I have the opportunity to endorse and recommend the Gleim System to all who may be considering it to enhance existing and/or acquire new skills. I began studying for the Enrolled Agent exams April 28th, 2012 with no background whatsoever in this or any accounting field. I must admit it was daunting, and told my wife on more than one occasion I didn't think I could accomplish this. She pushed me to keep with it and so I did. My goal was to be completed by mid-October. I took the [final] test just this past Thursday, September 13th, and passed!!! Through this process several thoughts came to mind. The material and the way it is presented is top shelf. I knew that if I failed the onus would be on me for not putting in the necessary work to achieve my goal. But the thing that separates one company from another are the employees. I firmly believe that a company's employees are a direct reflection of the employer. If this is true then Dr. Gleim must be one heck of a guy. I'm very happy to have chosen Gleim and can't imagine working with another.
I recently passed the EA exam, all three parts, on the first attempt. Although my study time was sporadic due to my work schedule and my 2 young children I was able to utilize the system one unit at a time to get the knowledge I needed to pass the exam. After more than a few late nights and several questions of my always helpful personal counselor, I was able to pass the exam in what I am sure was a fraction of the time it would have taken me to do it on my own. I will definitely recommend this system to anyone who is considering taking the EA exam(s) and I am now looking forward to taking preparing to take the CPA exam(s) using the Gleim system.
Eric G., Santa Clara, CA
Big thanks to Gleim EA review!! Took all 3 parts within 5 months and during tax season. The materials are broken down into powerful study units that cover more than the exam calls for. Better to be a prepared as this exam can be difficult. I found the materials to be equivalent to small powerful bites of information. Passed all 3 parts on the first try. Thank you Gleim for making this much easier than I could imagine.
Robert DiNapoli, EA
I spent about an hour a day using the system and it took me about 6 months to get through the materials and tests. I have already recommended the system to two of my colleagues. My advice to them, and anyone else, is to take your time and get as comfortable as possible with the materials. I would consider using your materials for Continuing Education, but I don't need any more credentials!
Michael J. Garland, EA
The Gleim EA review materials were very helpful for my learning. It was the only material I used to prepare for the EA examination. I was working
full-time and studying in the evenings and during the weekends. By following a strict study schedule, which I set for myself and going through the Gleim materials thoroughly, I was able to obtain a passing grade on my first sitting for each part of the EA examination. I will definitely recommend the Gleim EA review to anyone who intends to take the EA examination.
Keen Wong, EA
Gleim was great. I passed all three tests (EA) the first time! The books and test session are very well put together and matched with my learning style. I would recommend this program. I look forward to using Gleim for when I take the CPA.
Don Houser, EA
The course was very good, and I would recommend it. I studied for and took the three exams over a 6-7 month period. The materials work well because the practice questions force one to apply the material and to focus on what one needs to know for the test. It is definitely the second test section that requires the most studying.
Bruce T. Roepe, Esq.
I have passed 3 parts for the EA exam on the first try within 2 1/2 months. Gleim was great and easy to work with. I can honestly say that the Gleim material was far more thorough in its delivery. The material is excellent. A big thanks to Gleim for their program.
CA Vijay Bbhanderi
I enjoyed using the Gleim Review System to study for and pass the SEE. The online tests were very helpful and I felt like I was fully prepared
for each test. I would recommend Gleim to anyone who is interested in becoming an Enrolled Agent. I am also interested in the CPE that Gleim
Gleim's computerized study material was so helpful that I passed each section of the SEE on the first attempt. The system mirrors the testing environment so closely that I felt very comfortable while taking the test as I had "seen" the test during my studies. I have recommended the Gleim system to other colleagues to assist them in passing the Enrolled Agent exam. I am grateful to have passed the EA exam and be provided the additional privilege's of practice rather than being a Registered Tax Return Preparer.
I took all three papers of IRS Enrolled Agent Examination during the month of May 2012 and passed all of them in the first attempt. I used Gleim Publication materials to study all the three papers and find it very much useful. I could hardly see any questions asked during the exams which were not covered in the Gleim materials. I felt, if we study Gleim material for about 40 to 50 hours each paper, we could easily crack the IRS Enrolled Agent Examinations. Thank you so much for the useful study materials and I am looking forward to study for my CPA examinations during 2013 using Gleim study materials.
Veeranagouda, Bangalore, India
I am very grateful of Gleim Publications. I think they are the perfect tool, and have the materials needed to deal with different careers like Enrolled Agent, CPA,etc. Gleim has a collective of very professional and friendly personnel and great use of technology, which causes a first-class teaching between student and counselor at a great distance. Once Again, thank you so much.
Pedro Valdes, EA
I noticed from the first part that the Gleim materials matched the actual exams. I was not blindsided by questions that took me by surprise. This gave me increased confidence going into the second and third exams. The computer-based tests were critical for me. They allowed me to setup my own test criteria to focus on my weak spots. I would absolutely recommend Gleim to others! I already have! Gleim materials are great, but beyond that, the entire company has a great feel. From the sales staff to the technical support team, Gleim has made a anxiety ridden test experience just a little easier to handle.
Christopher Arotin EA, AIF®
Gleim's Review materials were fantastic. I passed all three parts of the EA exam on the first try over a period of 6 months. The materials are well written, organized, and addressed virtually MORE topics than I encountered on the actual exams. I left the test center a bit disappointed that part 1 of the exam was not as difficult as Gleim's questions. It was good to know that the Test Prep and Simulations mimics the actual exam so there
was no surprise on test day. I would recommend Gleim to anyone who is interested in passing the EA exam. When I revisit my studies for the CPA exam, I will definitely consider Gleim. Keep up the good work.
Nicole G., EA
Gleim Review System was beneficial to me in the senses that it provided adequate practice tests questions. When I sat for the exam I was done in 1.5 hours for each section. If asked I will recommend the Gleim system. If they practice, practice, etc... the exam is as good as done.
Ramiro R. Ruiz, E.A.
I liked the thought of having the personal counselor assigned to me. Review topics were really difficult for me because I come from retail background and I really appreciated the fact that I can contact somebody for help when I need it. Also, the review material was exactly what a person needs to pass this test. Gleim system benefited me personally on many different levels. Most important thing is that I learned a lot and that I became an expert at what I do. I passed all three parts the first time I took them and beat the timer 1-2 hours each time. I would
definitely recommend Gleim to others and use Gleim myself for any required CPE or if I decided to receive a new certification. Fantastic,
thank you Gleim!!!
Milos Komazec, EA
Gleim really helped me study the areas that were on the test and also helped me brush up on my testing skills. It was really a nice system to use, and there is also personal support if you need it. I have already recommended Gleim to a couple of folks. Telling them that you are setup to really focus on the test itself and also when a new year comes up it is very affordable to get the new year study material.
Becky Caudle, EA
I really liked the program that I purchased last year (May 2011) as it helped me pass all three tests in a brief period. The program focused my study to the information that was contained in the tests. And the practice testing was very worthwhile, too. I started in May and finished on the 11th of August, with the most time spent working on Part 2 (of course). I have recommended your programs to other preparers in our franchise. Thanks again for a great study program!
James Callahan, EA
I started the Gleim Study course last summer. In Jan I decided that I'd studied enough and scheduled Exam 1 for Jan 31. To my surprise, I passed it. My Gleim Counselor encouraged me to take Exam 3 (yes, #3) before they shut off testing for March and April. I went online to schedule it and the only opening was on Feb 18th! I studied hard and passed that one. I was so psyched that when I got home I went online to schedule my final exam, Part 2. The earliest I was able to schedule it was June 4th, so I did it. By Sunday night before my exam the stuff was mush in my brain so I contemplated rescheduling the exam, but didn't. I'm happy to report that I passed that one as well. I never could have done it without Gleim! Thank you guys a bunch!
The Gleim review materials gave me the knowledge and confidence to pass all three parts of the EA exam on the first attempt. The books outline IRS tax law in a convenient and easy-to-read way so that you do not have to take extra time to sort through various publications and instructions to gain the knowledge that you need to prepare for and pass the test. The test prep software further strengthened my knowledge to reinforce what I was reading in the outlines as well as familiarized me with the type of questions that would be presented on the actual test. I went into all three parts of the EA exam confident that I would pass because of the comprehensiveness and convenience that the Gleim study material has to offer. I would recommend this study material to a friend if they were serious about obtaining an EA. I would certainly consider Gleim to fulfill CPE requirements.
Jeff Valentino, EA
The Gleim Review was a great program that covered all of the necessary information covered on the exams. The practice questions prepared me very
well when it came time to take the exams. I was very confident and prepared for each part after completing each review session. I would recommend this to anyone considering taking the SEE.
Daryl Wong, CFP®, EA
I had great success with the Gleim EA study products, and was able to pass each part of the EA exam on the first try! The review guides were extremely thorough, and the material was presented in an easy to understand manner. The online testing really made the difference for me. I liked how I was able to choose the topics the questions would be generated from, and the amount of questions offered for each area of study. I also liked how the format of the questions mirrored the actual EA exam. I don't think I could have been as prepared for the exams if I had used a different product.
I believe that I owe my passing of the EA to the Gleim Courses. No question about that. But also requires from you, commitments, sacrifices and money to do it. I am 72 years old. To do it, I put hours and hours of study, usually getting up 1AM to 6AM to study, (was quiet). The result, I passed. Took me almost 2 years (that was my own set up program) and again without Gleim Studies I could not do it. They provide the guidance that I needed to succeed. Let me tell you, the EA license has changed the way I do business and look to business. It gives you more respect to
yourself, to your work, to your profession, even after more than 35 years doing accounting and taxes. Thank to all of you guys for your help in my success. Now, I am looking forward to take additional CPE courses from Gleim to maintain my EA accreditation if offered by them.
Rafael Cruz BBA, MS (Taxation), EA
Gleim Review System worked excellent for me. I used the Gleim materials for all 3 parts of the EA exam and I think they are the most comprehensive regarding material covered on the tests. I would definitely recommend them to anyone who is wanting to get their EA certification! When I need to begin my continuing education, I will definitely check out their materials first. Thank you for having such a wonderful system!
Sheila F., EA
Gleim Materials were on the only materials I used when preparing for the exam. I loved the fact that, the exam software is basically the same as at the testing center. The Gleim tips like "how to study a study unit" etc were fundamental to helping me pass the exam. I took while to sit for this exam though, the reason was not knowing whether I was ready or not. Then, after taking the first exam I realized I over studied (which is not a bad thing).
The materials were very helpful. In spite of not having much time between my work schedule and studying, I did all my studies while commuting by train between Delaware to Philadelphia which was about an hour and a half commute. With this limited time the test prep was key to my success and thanks to Gleim for making this possible. I certainly would recommend Gleim to anyone who is interested in becoming an Enrolled Agent.
Maurice Ojwang, EA
The Gleim study materials for the EA exam were essential in helping prepare for and pass. In fact, because of their efficient layout I still use them as reference materials to launch research and answer certain questions. I have already recommended the materials to my co-workers and highly recommend Gleim to anyone seeking certification(s).
Doug Hathaway, MBA, EA
Gleim makes it so easy to learn and retain information. The instant feedback helps to comprehend complex tax law and apply it. Being able to keep track of my weak areas and go back and review only those topics saved a lot of time. Thanks Gleim!
Jan Drewel, EA H&R Block, Master Tax Advisor
I used Gleim to help me study for the EA exams and I passed all three tests the first time. The material was easy to handle, the Audios were great to listen to in the car, while exercising, and just for an additional way to get the information. Reviewing incorrect answers and practice exams were the most helpful for me. Questions were similar to the actual exam questions. Thank you for helping me. It's a relief to have this additional certification for my career.
Lisa Van Doorn, EA
Using the Gleim Review materials have definitely helped me pass all three parts of the EA exam on the first attempt. The key is having a definite deadline date for the exam. Without a deadline date procrastination comes into the potential test takers thinking. Just like the IRS has dates when returns have to be filed, a test taker needs a date to take the test. Once the date is set then use the all of the Gleim platforms to help you pass the exam. For me, that meant reading the sections on the subway home from work, and using both the questions in the book, the questions on the computer, and the additional computer questions. Remember the test itself is on a computer, so you MUST do practice questions on the computer, or you can be freaked out when you get in the actual exam room.
First of all I'd like you to know that I trust Gleim EA Review materials. (It's a PRO approach.) I like all the materials from Gleim. I used the audio when I'm cooking, cleaning, driving, taking a walk (with my iPod), or before going to bed. It helps me understand and remember what I'm reading. I listen to it when my eyes are tired of reading. The practice questions are very useful and help me prepare to take the EA exam. I already recommended Gleim to my colleagues and one of them also passed the exam, the other one is in the process. Yes I will use Gleim Review again anytime, no doubt.
I used Gleim Review materials to study for the EA exam in 2010. The books did a good job of explaining and reviewing the necessary concepts. The practice exams were very helpful and were very similar in format and substance to the actual exam. I felt confident and passed all three parts in one attempt for each. I would recommend it to anyone who wanted to prepare before sitting for the Special Enrollment Exam.
Linda Crisafulli, EA
The books were easy to follow and I really liked the numerous sections to study. The print was also easy on the eyes, and I mostly studied at night. The study sessions for answering multiple-choice questions were easy to set up. I could do the minimum 20 questions or more. The answer explanations were very helpful. I really think the review format was beneficial in allowing me to take in sooo much information in a short span of time. I have already recommended to others seeking to study for EA or CPA. I already purchased materials for the CPA exam to review with my study partner in my office. Thank you for your help.
Olga Hernandez, EA
Thank you for your assistance and Gleim's review system. I passed all three parts on the first sitting. It was a good, hard study to prepare for
the exam. I was well prepared through Gleim study materials and system. I passed them all with ease. Test questions were so much easier than Gleim test materials. Gleim materials were deep and thorough. I have learned a lot more from it. For that I am very appreciative and highly recommend the Gleim system."
I have to say that this was the most helpful Review System I have ever come across. I passed all 3 Parts of the EA exam with ease. I really love the Test Prep software because it gives you every possible scenario so that by the time you sit for the exam the questions are a piece of cake. I loved the Gleim EA Review System so much that I have already ordered the CPA Review System for Financial Accounting and Reporting. Thanks Gleim!
I sat Part II yesterday morning and it felt so good to see the "Congratulations" screen. I used the Gleim method and in only about 4 weeks I did it. I am so pleased. Thank you Gleim for making it so easy for me to study and pass with just the perfect tools. Now onto Part III, next month.
Mary Ann Bone
I want to let you know that yesterday I passed the EA Exam Part 3. Now I am done with all three parts and passed the first time. I couldn't have done it without the Gleim system.
Hector S. Lopez, MBA
My sincere thanks & appreciation to Gleim Publications, without your review materials I would not have done as well as I did on the exams. Last Wednesday I completed all three parts of the EA exam. Your review materials are an excellent source of learning & practicing the problems. Without your help, I would have never made it.
I have successfully passed all three part of the EA exam! Gleim was great and easy to work with, and I appreciate the help! I highly recommend the study materials offered by Gleim. A big thanks to Gleim for their program.
Thank you for all your support and help. I passed the third part of the EA exam today. Your Gleim materials really do work well and even more important, you made me feel that you cared whether or not I succeeded.
LoAnn Nelson, PhD, CPA Accounting Instructor Lake Region State
Wanted to share with you that today I passed the final part of the SEE exam (EA Exam program). Using Gleim, I was successful in passing all 3 parts the first try. Actually I found the exam to be easier than the book - great preparation materials, and I like the option of bringing CDs in the car or listening to it on my iPod. Would recommend your complete system!
Mercedes Infante, CPA, EA
I just took the EA Part I exam and I passed. I have to say that your materials are up to date and you truly know what's being tested. I look forward to passing the remaining part of the IRS EA examination as I already took and passed EA Part III, thanks to your study materials.
I have used the Gleim for EA and CMA and I was successful on both and will surely recommend you to any one.
Excellent Course! Passed Part One of the Exam with ease. Taking the exam was like taking a Gleim practice exam so I was prepared and confident.
Michelle, Westhampton NY
I passed the IRS SEE (EA Exam) Part II today! I have no doubt I would not have been able to successfully prepare for it within two months without your help and study process.
I took and passed the SEE 3 (EA Exam Part 3) on Thursday. I have passed all three parts on the first try. Thanks for the great training program. It worked for me!!
I took Part 1 of the EA Exam and got a "passed" score. This is the first time I have taken any part of the EA Exam. I couldn't have done it without the Gleim System. Thank you so much for your help.
Hector S. Lopez, MBA
I have successfully passed all three parts of the EA exam on the first try with Gleim! I enjoyed using the software and liked the approach of taking a "cold" test then watching the overview/tutorial. Your software completely prepared me for each exam. Thank you Gleim!
The test materials were invaluable in allowing me to complete the EA exam on the first attempt. The cost of the material was quite reasonable and the on line exams were outstanding in preparing me to
succeed on the first attempt. I would not hesitate to recommend the use of the Gleim course and its materials to any fellow Tax Preparers
who are interested in becoming an EA.
I passed Part 3 of the Enrolled Agent exam today. I passed all 3 Parts the first time and sincerely believe that was due to the Gleim course-worth every dollar.
I have now completed all three parts of the EA exam on the first sitting. Thank you for all of your valuable training materials and for your help with this project. Gleim has made it possible for me to pass all three parts of the SEE exam on my first try. I am very grateful.
Thanks to Gleim, I passed all three sections of the SEE on the first try. I would recommend Gleim to anyone planning on taking (and passing!) this exam. I passed Part I in August, Part III in September, and Part II in October. Thank you again!
I have passed 3 exams on the first try. The Gleim quizzes really help people, who speak English as a second language. Wording for the questions were so tricky, and I was able to manage not to be tricked. I will do CPA in [the] future, and Gleim will be my best tutor.
I just want to let you know that I passed Parts 2 & 3! I had already passed Part 1 last year. Having used another resource for preparing for Part 1, I can honestly say that the Gleim material was far more thorough in its delivery. The material.....excellent. I purchased other software in preparation for part 1, nothing compared to yours.
The customer service was excellent. I will recommend Gleim products to my associates and forever be grateful to Gleim!
EA Part 2 had so many topics to study. I was not sure if I could pass the exam on the first try. I focused on chapters I was not familiar with and practiced online quizzes. If I did not study with Gleim, then I would not have passed part 2. I am so glad I chose Gleim.
I recently passed the last part of my EA exams. The Gleim material is the reason I passed all 3 parts the first time. Thank you for producing materials that really prepared me for the tests.
I used the Gleim Review materials for my EA exam preparation in 2009. I passed all three parts on the very first attempt. I strongly recommend Gleim for anyone who is writing the EA exam. In 2011 I bought the same material for my wife, and I am confident that it will help her pass the exam.
Bheemasankar Kolluru, EA
Although I did accounting under the British system, I wanted to better understand US tax and target American expatriates in the Caribbean. The Gleim system was amazing and I passed each paper on the first try. I highly recommend it!
Derren Joseph, Trinidad & Tobago / United Kingdom
I passed part 3 this past weekend and I couldn't have done it without Gleim. I passed all 3 exams on my first try. I just wanted to thank my Personal Counselor and Gleim for all of the support and the great product that you guys have put together.
Matthew Jaworski, EA
Lots of people have asked me about Gleim. I would have never passed the SEE Exam (EA) had it not been for the year that I spent immersed in Gleim. I can detect a distinct difference in the way that I am treated by IRS personnel and by other practitioners now that I am an EA.
Bill Belchee, EA
I passed the last of my 3 tests at the end of February, and was approved as an Enrolled Agent effective April 14th, 2011 - Hurray! I can't say enough about how much Gleim helped in my preparation. I passed all 3 parts on the first try, and all within 8 months of when I started preparing. Using the Gleim materials helped me make the best use of my study time. The Knowledge Transfer method really does work.
Becky Keesling, EA
If you use the Gleim EA materials and follow the program, you will pass the EA Exam. The actual EA Exam is much easier than the study materials.
I passed all three on the first try and feel certain that I would not have passed without Gleim. Gleim covers every possible question!
Cathy Christiansen, EA
As of today I have successfully passed all three parts of the SEE on the first try and this is all due to using Gleim. The software helps you see the progress you are making and how the Review System is designed, helps you prepare to make educated guesses on subject matter you may not know which is very helpful on the exam. Thank you so much for helping me through this process!
I passed part 3 today, and passed all three parts in the last 4 months on my first attempt using Gleim. While I am a CPA, I have been out of the tax business for the last 10 years, and your products were great bringing my skills up to date.
Caesar Schiavone, EA
"My experience with Gleim for the Enrolled Agent test prep course was my first. Your entire team was consistent in the commitment to meeting my needs. Gleim's customer service is second to none, absolutely superb. All of my requests were handled promptly and courteously. Materials were in my hands no more than one day after speaking with you or submitting an order online. The format of your study program is one that I would highly recommend and am currently recommending to several of my associates. The organization of your curriculum, the test formats, the optional study aids, etc, allowed me to successfully complete the examination requirements for the EA designation in record time. Your materials constantly reinforce what has been introduced and compliments many learning styles. I will look to your company as my continuing education resource throughout my career.
Leslie Buckholtz, EA
I have passed all three enrolled agent exams with the help of your material. I have reviewed many other preparation courses, but the buck stops at you from every aspect. Your material are rich in content, easy to understand, and priced at a very affordable rate. I am looking forward to starting my preparation course for my CPA exam. I am currently finishing my master's degree in taxation and I have encouraged all my classmates to purchase your material if they are interested to sit for any of the examinations.
Belash Kalantari (Arash), Tax and Accounting Consultant, CPQA, AAS, CA Forensic, APP, ASC, CSE, AASA
Couldn't have done it without Gleim. Started Gleim during my first tax season at H&R block. Was able to take Part one in July, Part three in September, and finished with Part two in February. Passed all three the first time in less than a year.
Daniel Crots, EA
I'm so glad I followed the Gleim system. I did not like taking the quiz first and getting low scores. However, it did help me focus on what I needed to work on and it also gave me confidence when taking the test-if I could get a 45 or 50% never having seen the information, I should definitely be able to pass now that I've studied a couple of months! That was very encouraging during this last exam. I appreciate how the personal counselors were able to tell me the study units for the problems I missed and provided encouragement as well. I stuck with the
program and completed all three parts on the first try in less than 6 months.
Adrienne Stevens, MAcc
The EA course material is extensive and very organized with a fail safe system. The best part of this course is the personal counselor assigned to you. My counselor stays constantly in touch with me and always returns my emails or phone calls promptly. They are very helpful in giving you the mental confidence that you will be prepared for the test. At the end of each course, he pointed out my weaknesses and what to concentrate on before taking the test. I have only taken the first test, Part 1, and I passed it the first time. I could not have done this alone, believe me. Thanks Gleim, I strongly recommend you for all your courses and look forward to finishing the EA course.
Your products are great. I passed all 3 parts of the EA Exam the first time through. Thank you!
Diann Wood, EA
I have now passed all 3 parts of the EA Exam. I want to say thank you for the EA review and all the questions. I believe it was all the questions that made the difference.
Jerry Struck, EA
Gleim study material was excellent! I passed all three parts the first time I sat for them. Thank you Gleim!
Gavin Scott, EA
Although I have been preparing taxes for over 20 years (17 years as a CPA), I felt that my knowledge of the tax code was not at the level it should be. Therefore, I took the opportunity after the 2009 tax preparation season to look into what I would need to do to correct this problem. I reviewed a few software programs offering the kind of preparation review necessary to successfully pass the SEE and I felt that Gleim offered the most realistic and focused approach. The scope of the test and study questions was everything I had anticipated. I truly feel that my success in passing all 3 parts, on the first try, was directly attributable to the quality of the Gleim program. I would strongly recommend Gleim to anyone seriously considering taking this exam. As a CPA, I feel that I can better serve my clients as a result of this undertaking.
David Hensley, CPA
I used the Gleim EA Review System, and I passed all three parts of the exam the first time! I would recommend Gleim to anyone, because the material is interactive, and provides practical application of the tax law in real life situations. This is crucial in the learning process in order to reinforce the subject matter. I plan on using Gleim to satisfy my CPE requirements. Thanks Gleim!
Joe Bonelli, EA
The Gleim EA review materials along with the NAEA Facilitator-Review course kept me on track with my studies. It was a lot of work but well worth it. I have now passed all three parts of the exam and mailed off my application on Friday. I am very excited. Thanks again for everything!
I passed all 3 exams the first time thanks to Gleim. The Gleim software was awesome and well worth the money, it made learning fun, and that's quite a challenge when you're learning tax! I recommend Gleim to all my staff who want to sit for the EA Exam, and would recommend it to anyone.
Paul Massie, EA
Thanks to your courses I passed all three of the Enrolled Agent exams between November 2008 and February 2009, the first time I took each one.
Larry Burden, CPA, EA
3 tests taken, 3 tests passed! The Gleim method of preparing students for their EA exams is a proven success. I would be happy to be a reference for the Gleim system. It works!
Ross Williams, EA
I want you to know that I passed the EA exam on my first sitting. It
feels great to have accomplished this task, but could not have done it
without the Gleim series.
My husband is a retired IRS agent and he has watched people take the
exam over and over . . . experiencing great difficulty in passing the
exam. He watched (and tutored) me study using your course and had no
doubt that I would pass it the first time. Thanks. I will be
encouraging others to use your course.
After studying with Gleim Enrolled Agent materials I passed all three tests on my first try. Before I took the Gleim courses I tried another way, which did not work, but cost me more than I paid for the three Gleim courses. I would recommend the Gleim Enrolled Agent self study courses to anyone who wants to pass the 3 tests on their first try.
Larry Burden, CPA
I took part three of the EA exam last week, and passed! Now I have passed all three of my exams, all on the first try! Thank you for the terrific study guides and practice exams. There is no doubt that without them, I would not have been prepared to pass on the first try.
Just wanted to let you know I passed Part 3 of the EA Exam yesterday (2/23).
That makes all 3 parts passed on first sitting. I appreciate the help you have
given me. The Gleim process works. I followed the study instructions for each unit (both on-line and in the EA Review book) and practiced multiple choice questions (from the CD) for my final review. Again, thank you.
I passed Part 2 today! It was pretty tough studying for it, but keep in mind,
I don't have a tax background so imagine my delight when I passed today.
Now...I just filled out the IRS paperwork today, so, in a few months I will have
my EA. I ordered the EA course Dec 4th so it did not take long to study and
pass all 3 parts, but it did take lots of dedication. I look forward to using
Gleim for the CPA exam. I could not have done this without this course, so a big
thank you to Dr. Gleim, et al.
It is with great pleasure I extend my many thanks for the efforts of
your editors and staff in assisting me in my successful completion of
all three parts of the SEE this past January. Your online and written
outline materials are top shelf. I found that combining the written
study questions at the end of each section with the CD question bank was
instrumental in maximizing my online practice test results with minimal
efforts. As a result, I felt confident going into each exam session I
would walkout of Prometric with the congratulatory receipt - which I
did! Thank you again.
Just wanted to let you know that passed EA 2 today. I passed all 3 exams on the first try!! Your software, study guides and online review made this difficult task, significantly easier. Thank you again.
I today passed the last exam of EA, part 3, and your EA review materials
really helped me a lot. Gleim helped me pass all these three exams and I
am really excited to be an E.A. in near future!!!
I took the final Part Three on Sunday and passed. Part Three was a bit more
comprehensive than I expected, but Gleim gave me a solid structure to work from,
even in regards to those questions from other sections. I also discovered
that I remembered many of the answers, despite the length of time since I'd
studied them, so I believe much of what I did study is fairly well fixed in my
long term memory. Thank you so much! It has been a great experience and Gleim
has helped me immensely in taking the next steps of my career.
I am so grateful for your assistance in helping me pass my EA Exams. I work
full time and so I did not have a lot of study time. I purchased the books from
you on October 15. I passed Part 1 on Nov 15, Part 2 on Dec 20 and I plan to
pass Part 3 on Jan 13. What a quick turnaround. Now that I have found what works
for me, I am planning to take the CPA with you after the upcoming tax season.
This is an area that I have failed in the past and I never thought that I could
do it after trying the "rest." Now I am ready to get all the
certifications that I need, thanks to Gleim.
Just wanted to pass on the news that I passed all 3 parts of the EA exam. Most
recently, part 2. I have to say that I was not as confident as I had been for
the other 2 parts. My only source of study was the Gleim software and book. As
someone with no knowledge of most of the material from part 2, I must give Gleim
some credit for providing me with what I needed to pass the test.
I took and passed today SEE-2 to complete my testing for Enrolled Agent.
My success was largely due to Gleim's superior materials and instruction
methods! Thank You for your excellent educational package/system!
I purchased your Gleim CPA review in August 1977 (it may have been your
2nd edition). That's after taking one of your competitor's twice. I
passed all four parts on my second try with your reviews in 1979. In
1993, I passed the CIA exam on my second try with your reviews. In
2002, I passed the EA exam, which I believe is as difficult as the CPA
exam, on my first try, again thanks to your EA Review course. I owe much
to you professionally for your courses. All that you need to pass
professional exams are Gleim review courses and a dose of perseverance.
I took EA Part 1 on Saturday and passed it the first time. I am now
proceeding to the next section (Businesses). The Gleim system was very
helpful in getting me to pass the first time - I did find that the
questions on the actual test were more general than the Gleim questions,
but Gleim also offered me an opportunity to learn information I did not
know, not just pass the test. I very much appreciated it - it's been
helping me at work, during my daily routine as well helping me study for
the test. It has been exactly what I needed. Thank you so much!
I took and passed today SEE-3 using your Test Prep CD-Rom as my study
material - will use the same product to study for the SEE-2 . I have
found Gleim's material and study methods most effective.
