The books were great and the test questions were extremely helpful! The multiple formats of the questions were invaluable in learning the required information. I was actually over prepared for the business section of the exam. I passed all three exams on the first try, I submitted Form 23, and I have received my certificate as an EA. I strongly recommend Gleim to anyone considering the EA exams!
Bill Ross, EA
Gleim provided not only accurate and thorough study material but also very useful tips for successfully passing the exams. Gleim has a tremendous study bank of questions so you are not repeating the same questions and memorizing answers! Gleim is easy to access from computers, laptops or tablets and the books can be useful for short amounts of waiting time or time away from internet access. The study planner Gleim provides is key! The amount of study time needed is calculated for you and you can easily tell if you are on track! Once you set your goal and follow the steps in the Gleim study planner, you will achieve success! I am so glad I chose Gleim!
Tori Wicker, EA
Gleim helped me pass the EA exam by helping me to stay focused and on track with studying. It is the best investment I could have made. I am a procrastinator and Gleim's Study Planner wouldn't let me do that.
In short, I used Gleim's Review System to study for all three parts of the SEE, and I was able to pass all of the parts within 6 months of starting. Gleim's review system provided accurate test questions with respect to the question format, tax content, and question verbiage. When I sat for each exam, the actual test questions felt similar, and sometimes nearly identical, to the Gleim material I studied. The timelines Gleim suggested for preparing for each exam were accurate (about 3-5 extra days built in - don't panic if you miss a few study days). Gleim included a large question bank and I did not see repeat practice test questions unless I specifically selected to test on questions I missed. The value of Gleim is that they curate the high volume of tax law and practice procedures into topical courses and test materials that closely resemble the actual exam. Overall, Gleim's Review System provided the information I needed to pass the SEE in the timeline that worked for my business and career objectives. I would recommend using Gleim to prepare for the SEE.

I could not have passed my EA exam without having studied using the Gleim review process. I always felt over prepared after each testing phase. The actual exam felt easier than the practice material.
Gleim uses a variety of learning techniques that integrates all facets of the EA test. The simulation is exemplary! Even with a hectic schedule that included overtime, I was able to study and pass all 3 tests. I really enjoyed using the various techniques that are available. I would highly recommend the system for anyone and will definitely use Gleim for future education credits as their information is incredibly useful.

My name is Li Sun and I am from China. I have never touched US tax before and English is my second language. The Gleim Review System is extremely helpful. I passed all the exams the first time I took them. I really like the way the Gleim Review System functions. The audio presentations and lectures helped me understand the content of each chapter. The design of focus and multiple choice questions were very practical. I did well in the exams just by following the Gleim Review System. Additionally, I really appreciated my Personal Counselors help. She solved all my issues and queries during my study. I would definitely recommend the Gleim Review System to anyone who wants to work on their EA.
Li Sun, US Tax Specialist
What I gained from the Gleim Review System is not only knowledge to pass the test, but practical knowledge which I can use in my work. It always motivated me till I passed. Gleim is the fastest and most efficient way to study and pass the EA exam, even for a non-native English speaker.
I want my fellow candidates to know that Gleim really prepares you well, and by well I mean it has the BEST resources! The Audio Lectures made it extremely easy and convenient for me to access the course all the time, even while I was driving. Also, the Personal Counselors were always an email or call away with anything I needed. I used Gleim for the EA certification starting back in April of 2016, and I passed all three parts on my first attempt in less than 9 months. Gleim not only prepares you for the test, but it actually prepares you for real life. I would highly recommend Gleim to anyone.
The Gleim Review System provided structure to my exam preparation, including a mechanism for managing study time to ensure completion prior to the target exam dates. I liked how the Test Prep is set up exactly like the real test environment. The questions are very similar to the questions presented on the actual exam. I also liked having a Personal Counselor to encourage me and to keep me accountable to meet my desired timeline. The Gleim Suggested Steps work. Keep up the momentum and you will succeed! I would use Gleim for any similar certification – their process works!

The thing I liked best about the Gleim Review System was the way the review material mirrored the IRS exam. It took a lot of the stress out of taking the exam because the entire process was so familiar. The review concentrated on what I needed to do to pass. I think without it I would have spent a lot more time and work and still possibly not been prepared. I would definitely recommend the review system to any one who is wanting to take the EA exam.
The Gleim material was perfect for my busy lifestyle. I’m a busy mother of an 8 year old and a 17 year old. My husband owns his own electrical business and travels a lot. I’m employed full-time at a CPA firm, which is very demanding of my time as well. At the age of 44, I didn’t see myself going back to college; therefore, when my employer offered me the opportunity to achieve my dream of becoming an Enrolled Agent, I took him up on the offer. In May 2016, I ordered the Gleim study material to start this new adventure in my life. The material allowed me to study at my own pace and at the convenience of most anywhere I went including gymnastics with my daughter, family vacations, and soccer practice with my son. I used the study planner to layout my study strategy and set an achievable goal for myself. My personal counselor helped to keep me on track by sending emails of encouragement. She was awesome! Gleim provides you with all the study material to prepare you for an opportunity of success! There’s everything you need to achieve your goal of becoming an EA when you purchase the material from Gleim. I would personally recommend the Premium Review System because I used every part of it and found it extremely helpful. Gleim was perfect for me! Gleim didn’t let me down for my EA exam, so I will definitely make them my first choice to provide me with the help that I will need in maintaining my EA credentials through using their CPE courses.
Gleim gave me a plan to follow to help stay on task and I was able to review my progress all along the way. This is a great program to use as a self-directed study when you aren't in a classroom.
If a person is serious about passing the Enrolled Agent Exam, he/she should consider signing up for the Gleim Program. The IRS has so many rules/regulations that it is hard to narrow down the topics that you need to study unless you have Gleim. Gleim provides questions/answers that are very similar to the type of questions that will be on the EA exam. Study chapters are available to read so that you can learn the material before taking the practice test. The feature that helped me the most was the timed testing. The EA exam is timed, so you must practice taking the test in a timed situation. I would not have passed the EA exam on the first try, unless I had the resources of Gleim.
Since I own a bookkeeping business, it was vital to continue keeping up with my work and new clients. Gleim helped keep me on track with the study planner as well as pinpointing the weaker areas. I would definitely recommend Gleim to a friend.
I am glad and excited to let you know that I passed all three parts of the EA Exam! I want to thank Gleim for its tremendous support. The materials were excellent, easy to understand, and very accessible. I was able to access the materials remotely from anywhere: My car, my phone, my house... I mean from ANYWHERE! I did not need any other materials to pass the exam. I would not hesitate a second to refer the Gleim materials to anyone!
I just passed the final part of the Special Enrollment Examination – in fact, by using the Gleim Review System, I passed all three parts on the first attempt. The Gleim Review System was absolutely the best option for giving me the best overall preparation for these Exams! Even though I work in a CPA office, we have specialties and so I don’t have experience in all the areas covered by the exam. The Gleim materials were instrumental in broadening my knowledge, but also honing skills and knowledge in areas that I was already familiar.
I was able to study at both home and work and with or without a computer. Plus I could set up a schedule that worked for me. There’s so much information to be learned; there’s no way I could have prepared for the exams on my own. How would I have known what to focus on? How in depth? I would heartily recommend the Gleim Review System to anyone that wants to get an overview; deepen their understanding; or take the fear out of the examination process. I knew that I had done my “due diligence” and could walk in far more confidently because Gleim truly prepared me and if you use it the way they’ve designed it, you’ll be prepared too. Thanks, Gleim and to all the staff that have been so helpful to answer questions along the way.
CR Wallace, Sacramento
I highly recommend Gleim when studying for the Enrolled Agent Exam. As being a full-time working mother and a tax professional, Gleim kept me on track with my studying using their online Study Planner and the help of my Personal Counselor. I loved the Test Prep part of their course and that I had access to the review until I passed. I have now passed all three parts of the exam! Thank you so much, Gleim!
Gleim benefited me personally because I was able to utilize it around the clock. I could be anywhere and access the Gleim website. Sometimes I would do practice tests while in the waiting room at the doctor or dentist office. It was very convenient and helped me build my confidence in specific tax subjects and matters I was not very familiar with. I did not have any experience with Business tax returns and since studying the material I feel more confident with Business returns and have actually started preparing these types of returns. I have already been referring others to try Gleim.
I passed the EA exam on my first try in less than two months, using the Gleim EA Review. I made sure to prepare consistently and work through the quizzes diligently. Now I am an EA! I think that is pretty good for a 76 year old man.
Tom Salvador, EA
Gleim gave me the extra push I needed to finally pass Part 2 of the Enrolled Agent exam. I had used another review product coming within a question or two of passing several times. I wish I would have found Gleim sooner because the study material was superior. Thank you Gleim!!!
Paula Johnson, EA
I successfully passed the EA exams on my first attempt using the Gleim Review System. What I like about Gleim is that the study material covered a wide range of tax topics, which helped me to gain an understanding and comprehension of the material in the study units. The Gleim questions covered what I needed to know in order to pass the EA exams. When I recently sat for Parts 1 and 2, I was pleasantly surprised and confident in answering the exam questions because I saw similar questions when using the Gleim Review System. As an added bonus, my Gleim personal counselor was always available and willing to assist me through the study process. I highly recommend Gleim to others and I certainly will use Gleim to maintain my CPE hours.
Katrina Dawkins CPA, CFE
I successfully passed all three EA exams in my first attempt, and in less than 5 months! Gleim created an effective review system to prepare you for the exams. The review system is structured to allow you to view your progress and areas of strengths and weaknesses. Every study and practice question has an explanation designed to reinforce learning. It gives you the flexibility to study at your own pace. I would highly recommend Gleim to anyone interested in studying to become an Enrolled Agent. Thank you, Gleim Team for being a part of my success!
Lily Tran, EA
I found the Gleim Review System to be well structured, in-depth, and comprehensive. For each part of the EA exam I felt confident that the material I needed to know had been covered in great detail in my study units. I didn't feel that I was only studying to pass the exams, I felt that Gleim was giving me the skills to fully understand the tax code and apply it to tax preparation. The Gleim Review System caters to all types of learners as it provides audio, audio-visual, and conventional reading materials. Additionally, it was meaningful to have a personal counselor; it gave the Review System a level of accountability which made it easier to stay on track. I have, and will continue to, recommend the Gleim Review System. I'll also be a returning customer to fulfill my CPE requirements.
Kristen Howze, Netherlands
I have been an educator for over 30 years, and have constructed assessments and prepared students for certifying examinations in another industry. I can state unequivocally, that the Gleim approach is the most comprehensive and beneficial system that can be utilized to pass the EA examination. I implore EA candidates to not underestimate the importance of faithfully utilizing the Gleim system for study. The counselors are dedicated to your success and are determined to help in any way. They truly desire to see you succeed. That should be very refreshing and uplifting to any EA candidate. My Personal Counselor was an extraordinary adviser and was always very prompt in responding to my e-mail questions and need for advice. By the time I took the part 3 EA examination, I was supremely confident in my skills to pass the final assessment. There is no doubt that I will utilize Gleim again for my upcoming EA CPE hours. Thanks again Gleim for assisting me through this successful and rewarding process.
The Gleim program is simply the best system on the market with their comprehensive approach. Gleim goes further by offering a personalized study plan allowing the student to customize study time on a calendar. I found this to be an excellent resource for keeping me on track. Last but not least, I cannot articulate enough how my Personal Counselor made a difference for me. She was outstanding! She offered great guidance and suggestions on how to review the material in a different way when I became stuck or simply felt like I was out of options on how to study. Her insight and knowledge made the difference. Gleim has the best approach for success; I can truly attest to this fact. I passed all three exams on the first try!!!! I cannot say enough about the great staff that I worked with, their professionalism and personable attitude really gave me the confidence to stick to the program. I would highly recommend the Gleim system to anyone looking to pass the EA exam. Gleim offers the best tools for success period!!! The money I spent for all of the materials was money well spent and I would not take one penny back!
Raquel Thompson, EA
The Gleim Review System is a great review system. It is designed for both auditory and visual learning styles. I listened to the Audio Lectures, which, if you are predominately an auditory learner, are great. They are short, concise, and done quite well. After mastering tax concepts the Gleim Review System gives an Exam Rehearsal, which mimics well the actual IRS SEE. This Exam Rehearsal gives tremendous feedback for polishing weaker areas close to the time of taking the actual IRS SEE. Another great feature of the Gleim Review System is the Performance Analysis, which made focusing on weaker areas easy. I like to work smart, not hard. The Gleim Review System was a fantastic tool in achieving my goal of becoming an Enrolled Agent, which I did on the first try of each of the three parts of the IRS SEE.
Drennon Stringer, EA
I followed the procedure set forth by Gleim to study for my EA exam. I was very surprised when I passed each part the first sitting. Thank you Gleim.
Jim Carson, RTRP, EA
I used Gleim's course for my EA license. This was an excellent course that made studying for each exam much easier. One of the main things I like the most about this course is that it gives you a large number of test prep questions. This helps you focus on your weak areas with different questions which was most helpful in my progress. I passed all three exams my first time and I would recommend this course to anyone wanting to obtain their license. Great course, Gleim!
With this system you aren’t just memorizing facts (which are easily forgotten). The nature of the questions and the steps that you answer them in are specifically designed so that you are learning concepts and truly understanding them. I was able to pass the Part 2 exam on the first try. I like the short time frame for review that I was able to utilize with Gleim. If my review had been more drawn out, I would have been more likely to be lazy. It kept me in check. I also felt that because I was used to harder questions on the review, that I got through the actual exams quite quickly. I have already recommended Gleim to a coworker. She hadn’t given much thought to becoming an EA, but after I told her about my experiences I think it gave her the motivation and confidence to get started.
I believe that I made the right choice in an EA review course. Gleim gave me not only the information I needed to pass all 3 parts on the first attempt, but it gave me the confidence that I could and would pass them. I found that, following the strategy recommended, I knew the material and was ready for each part of the exam. I can't imagine that I could have accomplished passing all 3 exams without Gleim. The materials given are just what will be tested in the exams. I highly recommend the Gleim system to anyone who wants to become an EA. If you put in the time studying, you will pass using Gleim. It prepares you in a way that I doubt others can. I like they way the material is presented. It keeps topics that can sometimes be boring interesting. My personal counselor was very helpful to me all through my studies. She sent me reminder e-mails, answered my questions promptly when I had a few that came up, and most importantly, she always encouraged me. She was genuinely happy when I told her that I had passed.
You are allowed 3.5 hours to complete each exam. Using the Gleim system, I had plenty of time for each exam and even had time left to do a 100% review of each question before submitting for grading. I had complete confidence of success before each exam and throughout the exam process. I knew I had done really well before I hit the end test button. I like the multiple step review process and how you can tailor your review to the items that you have missed or not seen before. I definitely recommend this course. I would not have done so well without Gleim! I used Gleim for the CMA years ago and will use Gleim for CPE.
Gerald Maxwell, CMA
I had only began my career as a tax preparer for a few months, when my boss suggested to me that I become an Enrolled Agent. He highly recommended the Gleim EA Review Program. By committing to the excellent program, I was able to pass all three tests on the first try, in about six months. I have not been a “student” for many years, but using the Gleim Program made it easy. Everything is done professionally, from the website for online studying and tracking your progress, to the easy to follow manuals and audiovisual presentations. It was also comforting to know that I had a Personal Counselor to help and answer my questions. Thank you Gleim. I have, and will continue to, recommend you to others. Gleim will be the obvious choice for my EA Continuing Education requirements.
Ed Scharber, EA
I had purchased other EA review courses before, but just couldn't get into them. After I purchased Gleim I began my review. Fourteen weeks later I have those beautiful two letters after my name! If anything, Gleim over-prepared me for the exams. I passed all three parts on the first try. I like the additional workload since I will use the knowledge in my practice. Gleim works you into tip-top shape. When you step into that exam room at Prometric you feel like a finely-tuned athlete ready to execute your game plan.
Keith Espinoza, EA
I want to say that in comparison to a competitor (which I used for the RTRP exam, EA parts 1 and 3, and initial study for part 2), the Gleim product is far superior. The Gleim material over-prepared me. I'm not sure if I could have gotten through EA part 2 without Gleim, and I intend to tell that to anyone with whom I discuss the EA test.
Gleim helped me pass the CMA in 1987, before the exam study process was electronic, and now it has helped me pass the EA in 2015. At 62, I questioned my own capacity for absorbing the EA data, but Gleim's methodology was thorough, logical, and efficient. I passed all three EA parts on the first attempt, and in less than 6 months total! Good job by me and the Gleim team! Thanks!
Randy Mayfield EA, CMA
The Gleim Review System was very helpful in a number of ways. First, it pulled together and put into an organized fashion the huge amount of material that one must try to digest and understand. Second, the online quizzes were of great value in testing one's knowledge and in giving me accurate corrections so that you could learn from incorrect answers. Third, the size of the test bank was valuable because I didn't run out of new questions to be tested on. Fourth, the practice exam was very helpful in identifying areas to concentrate on in my final preparations. I would absolutely tell a friend to use the Gleim Review System to prepare for the EA exam, especially if that friend did not have a lot of previous experience in taxation. There is just too much information that one needs to know to be able to pass the exams without getting some help. While a person may have experience in individual taxation, s/he still needs to pass exams in business taxation and representation, and the Gleim system can be very helpful with these exams. Given my career preferences, I would consider using Gleim materials to prepare for the CPA and/or CMA exams.
David Cleaver-Bartholomew, EA
A friend of mine recommended that I use Gleim to study for my EA exam. He already passed the EA exam, so I did not think twice and signed up. Gleim has really put together an excellent program. I really enjoyed the audios (I can listen to it everywhere), the videos (excellent for me since I am a visual person), and that I was able to learn to answer the questions in 1.5 minutes. This really gave me an advantage since the average time in the real test is 2.5 minutes per question. I passed all 3 parts on my first try. All I can say is that, by following your instructions in the booklet, How to Pass the EA exam, there is no way that someone can not achieve the EA status. Deciding to get the EA status is the best decision I have ever made. Of course I will be using Gleim for my CE credits! In fact, I currently have one daughter studying Gleim for the EA Exam and my youngest daughter is also using Gleim for the CPA!
A. Nava, EA
Last year I purchased my Gleim Review System and passed Part 1 easily. However, after going over the Part 2 review book, I was not sure if I wanted to continue to go through hours of studying. In May of this year I received an email from my Personal Counselor asking me if I want to continue my review. I gave it a lot of thought and finally said I will.
I studied Part 2 using both the Gleim Review Book and the practice exams. I took my exam and passed! Oh, what a big relief and joy. I was so inspired by passing that I went ahead and reviewed Part 3. The Gleim Review Book and practice exams were so awesome for Part 3. I took my exam and passed it with flying colors. Gleim prepared me so well that I only missed a couple of questions.
I am now an Enrolled Agent, enrolled to practice before the Internal Revenue Service. I want to thank my Personal Counselor, who was supportive every time I called, as well as the great Gleim Review System that made this possible.
My advice: study hard using the Gleim Review System, persevere, and believe in yourself.
Estela Arciaga, EA
While I have prepared my own taxes my entire life, I did not have any prior professional tax experience and I wanted to find a system that would help someone like me prepare for the exams. Prior to signing up for the Gleim EA review, I found testimonials from people who had passed the EA exams using Gleim without any prior tax experience, which helped me decide to choose Gleim. I successfully passed all three EA exams on the first try using Gleim. Obtaining the EA designation shows my clients that I have taken the time and effort to become a tax expert that they can trust for their tax planning and tax preparation needs. Gleim has been doing this for a long time and has developed a unique system that is very effective. The review process is structured and methodical. If you follow it, you will pass the exams. The online calendar was very helpful in planning my time and it helped keep me focused on my goals. The online system has a lot of great features that allow you to track your progress and see where you are having difficulties. You can take as many test prep quizzes as you want and you can select the study units you want to include in each quiz allowing you to focus on specific areas. For each of the three EA exams, I felt that Gleim over prepared me.
When I first thought about becoming an Enrolled Agent, I had limited experience working at a national tax prep company, as well as preparing my own taxes. I first heard about Gleim from a co-worker at the tax company. The Gleim EA Review system delivered as promised and I passed all 3 EA exams on my first attempt. The Gleim EA Review system was very well organized and presented in a manner that, maximized my retention of each section of the Enrolled Agent exam. A valuable feature is the Study Planner. It helped me establish a study routine simply by selecting a study start date and a test date. The study planner then created a plan of action. When I got off track due to life interruptions, I simply went back to the Study Planner and selected a new test date to create an updated plan. When I got off track and became a little discouraged, those were the times I received calls from Gleim. Their calls were always friendly, caring, encouraging, and never condemning.
Ralph H Loescher
The Gleim system was simple to use; it enhanced the learning process by having you learn from your mistakes. This approach proved very valuable.
The materials were very accurate in reflecting information that was tested on the exam. My personal counselor was very helpful in helping start a manageable study schedule that fit in with my busy life. I found that responses to my questions were prompt and complete, which helped my studies tremendously. I was provided with a solid base of knowledge and ended up knowing more material than, in my opinion, was needed to pass. It was a great feeling to have on test day.
Bryan Crew, EA
The Gleim material was very helpful in my preparation to pass the EA examination. I really liked that I could study at my own pace as opposed to being online at specific times for "study rooms". The Gleim representatives were very helpful in answering any and all of my questions. I would recommend Gleim because of these reasons, and will use Gleim for my next studies.
Petr Perecinsky, EA
The steps set forth by the Gleim Enrolled Agent Review System allowed me to learn the information systematically. I was able to see explanations immediately during the study sessions, which showed me what areas I needed to focus on more. I would recommend Gleim as the best self study review system available.
May Piao, EA
After purchasing another publication and failing Part 1, I found Gleim and it was exactly what I needed to reach my goal. The Gleim Review System definitely lived up to their guarantee. The counselors were very interactive throughout the entire process; they would reach out to me at various intervals in my studies to make sure that I didn't have any questions or concerns. I would suggest Gleim to anyone looking to obtain a certification.
I used Gleim to prepare for the Enrolled Agent Exam. Gleim was extremely helpful in reinforcing and conveying the concepts and theories, which made it so much easier to understand the material. I can honestly say that I was overly prepared for my exams. I would highly recommend using Gleim for the EA exam.
Ericka Williams, EA
I want to express my sincere gratitude to Gleim because I have just passed my final hurdle: Part 2 of the Enrolled Agent Exam. I accomplished this feat by using Gleim's EA Review System, which I highly recommend to any prospective EA's. Thank you so very much, Gleim!
Jerry A. Ault
With the help of the Gleim Review, I was able to achieve my goal of completing the EA exam within 4 months. The study planner kept me focused and motivated me to complete the study units on time. Additionally, the time frame for preparing for the exam really helped keep me on track. The interactive reviews were helpful in identifying my weak areas and explanations were provided to both incorrect and correct answers. Gleim even provided references to relevant IRS publications. I used Gleim to fulfill my Annual Filing Season Program requirements and will use Gleim for my continuing education as well.
Gleim is the best review program out there for EA exam preparation! The material is presented in easy-to-understand sections and there are a lot of great examples to clarify the more difficult concepts. While the EA exam is challenging, preparing with Gleim is the best investment you can make towards passing the exam on the first try. Using Gleim allowed me to maintain a high level of confidence while studying and when I sat for each portion of the test. Having access to unlimited, modifiable practice quizzes and a full-length simulated exam was crucial in identifying and strengthening weak subject areas before taking the actual exams. The materials were outstanding and easy-to-follow! The reviews and presentations focused on what was vital for the actual exam; no fluff added! My personal counselor was adept at answering all of my questions regarding preparations for the exam and was with me every step of the way! On the rare occasion my personal counselor was unavailable, there were other counselors that were able to provide me the same level of excellent service. Finally, the How To Pass the EA Exam: A System for Success booklet, was essential because it explained the entire process right at the beginning. The Gleim system is first-rate and allowed me to pass all three sections of the EA exam ON MY FIRST TRY! If you dedicate yourself to mastering the material with Gleim, then you will pass.
I was very impressed with the Gleim System. The materials are well designed to assess knowledge and reinforce learning. Additionally, the Gleim program kept track of my progress and would notify me whenever I got off schedule. The personal counselors were always available and willing to help. I passed all three exams on the first try, and I was able to complete the journey in 10 months, with other bits of my life taking up a good bit of time as well. Should I decide to pursue another designation, I would certainly consider Gleim to help me reach my goal.
Konny Sinton, EA
As a recent MBA graduate, I decided to pursue certification as an Enrolled Agent in order to enhance career development. However, time to prepare for the Enrolled Agent exam was limited because of family obligations and work. Under these circumstances, Gleim helped me to prepare for the exam and pass all three parts on the first try. The Gleim materials really work. I have just purchased CPA materials from Gleim because of my previous experience with EA. I would recommend Gleim to my friends and students if any of them chose to pursue certification.
I passed the EA Exam with Gleim's great review system and support on December 29th 2014. I believe that without Gleim's materials, it would have been impossible to have achieved this accomplishment.
I had the opportunity to beta test a competitor of Gleim, and I was impressed by how comprehensive Gleim was in comparison. Gleim had almost four times more information than the competitor. Using Gleim, I passed both Parts 1 and 3 very quickly and on the first attempt. Part 2 took longer to study for, but I still passed it on my first try. A valuable aspect of my test preparation was the references Gleim provided throughout each chapter. They helped to clarify each chapter outline. Additionally, the Personal Counselors were very motivating and encouraging when I stalled or fell behind. The counselors have considerable experience working with candidates and knew just how to motivate me to get through all the information. Bottom line - Gleim prepared me. Not only did I pass the exams, but I am a more knowledgeable tax professional now.
Jeffrey Morris, MBA
After passing Parts 1 and 3 of the EA exam, I studied for Part 2 like a mad woman because it has a reputation for being the most difficult part. I PASSED! It actually seemed easier than Parts 1 and 3, but only because Gleim prepares you so thoroughly! So exciting!
When I first started to prepare for the Enrolled Agent exam, I wanted to only use books instead of a full review course. After all, I had worked in the tax industry for 17 years. However, despite my experience, it didn't take long to become overwhelmed by all the information. Gleim came highly recommended as a self-study course, and after checking out the free demo, I saw that that their review system would be highly beneficial. The materials were very thorough and even covered information I never would have thought to focus on on my own. Gleim is well worth the investment; I passed all three parts of the Enrolled Agent exam on the first try. My personal counselor was wonderful! We communicated regularly and she was very encouraging while I prepared for my exams. Anyone that is thinking about sitting for the Enrolled Agent exam should use the Gleim study course; I highly recommend it!
Jan Wilson, EA
Gleim provided a systematic plan for me, which included a complete and thorough process for passing the EA exam. I could never have developed such a plan on my own. Gleim took a large amount of subject matter and broke it down into comprehensive study units. The step by step process allowed me to absorb and retain the information in a very time efficient matter. Furthermore, the ability to consult with a personal counselor was an invaluable benefit. This provided me with the confidence to sit for the exam. I would not hesitate to recommend Gleim to anyone. They provided a superior study system at a very reasonable cost. After having had such success with Gleim, I look forward to using them for my Continuing Professional Education.
Andrew Brownlow, EA
The Gleim Review System for Enrolled Agent did an excellent job of preparing me for the exam. I believe that the order and repetition of the quizzes and tests helped tremendously when it came to material retention. I was more than prepared when the actual test day arrived. The knowledge that I gained while studying has also helped me on the job. I have considered taking the CPA exams in the past and I am now considering it again because I think that the Gleim Review System could greatly improve my chances of passing.
Carrie Schueler, EA
The layout of the Gleim materials benefited me by building the required foundation and providing a structured method for learning. The online materials helped me review the content details. Gleim resolved any questions I had regarding the materials, and did so in a timely manner. I personally believe that the materials increased my confidence greatly. I highly recommend the Gleim EA course to anyone who is looking to expand their knowledge of tax or take the exam. The Gleim course made studying for the EA examination easy and enjoyable. I will definitely look forward to Continuing Professional Education courses with Gleim.
Raghuvir Goradia, EA
The Gleim Review System more than prepared me for the Enrolled Agent examinations. If you follow their course of study, module by module, you can't go wrong. When I sat down to take the tests, I realized how prepared I was as the time passed. I actually felt over prepared for it. I would highly recommend the Gleim Review System to anyone looking to become an EA. I will certainly look to Gleim as well when it's time to complete my continuing professional education.
Luis Rosa, EA
My goal at the closing of the 2014 tax season was to earn my Enrolled Agent designation by the end of the year. After doing a lot of research, I decided Gleim was the best tool to help me achieve such a huge objective. The fact that the Gleim materials were self-paced and offered audio, video, and text meant that I could take my studies on the go. The quizzes helped me focus on weaker areas and helped me feel prepared walking into each test. I highly recommend Gleim.
I am a tax preparer and I wanted to excel in my career. I knew that if I wanted to present myself as a professional to clients and employers alike, becoming an Enrolled Agent had to be at the top of my list of priorities. With the Gleim EA Review System and a little bit of motivation, I was successful in passing all three parts of EA Exam on the first try. Gleim is such an extraordinary system that you do not need years of experience to succeed. Gleim will teach you to be assertive, how to eliminate distracting answers, and how to narrow down the possible answers. I did enjoy having all the features available at any time and on any device. This allowed me to study anytime I wanted. Furthermore, my personal counselor was an excellent ally during this process; she was always available to answer my questions, clarify doubts, and follow up on my progress. I will definitely use Gleim for my continuing education courses. Without hesitation, I recommend this system to my colleagues, friends, and anyone else interested in becoming an Enrolled Agent.
After multiple attempts to pass Part 2 of the Enrolled Agent exam using different study materials, I decided to give Gleim a try. The personal counselor and money back guarantee helped give me the courage to try again. While it took me a few more tries to pass, I noticed that with Gleim, my score improved each time and I was only within a couple of points of passing. This past week I finally passed and am now an EA! My entire experience with Gleim was wonderful, from my very supportive counselor to the quality of the study materials, I feel that Gleim truly prepared me for what was on the exam. I plan to use Gleim for my Continuing Professional Education and will recommend this company to everyone!
Lisa Brunke, EA
The Gleim Review System prepared me to pass the first part of the EA exam. I opted to only use Gleim for the remaining 2 parts of the EA
exam; I am glad I did. Gleim was instrumental in helping me pass all parts of the EA exam on the first try. I was very impressed with the
thoroughness of the Gleim EA review materials. The Gleim materials were very similar to what I experienced in the actual test. Gleim gets a big thumbs up from me. I would recommend Gleim to anyone taking the EA exam. If and when I take the CPA exam, I will use Gleim.
I found your website very easy to navigate. Also, the course materials were written very clearly and concisely, which made them easy to understand. Thanks, Gleim.
Leslie Blair, EA
The Gleim materials made it easy to study a large quantity of information. I really liked that I could access the online components at any time and with just about any device. The study sessions were absolutely INVALUABLE -- this was my favorite feature of the course! It really helped me to learn the information and provided instant feedback on the material being studied. I would tell a friend that purchasing the Gleim material for the EA exam is money well spent. I wouldn't hesitate to use Gleim to study for the CPA exam, if given the opportunity.
The system helped me understand what format to expect on the exam, and trained me to utilize my time properly. Since I have a visual memory, the presentation helped me gain some insight into the structure of each topic. For those professionals who have minimal free time, it is very convenient to use the Gleim method; it gives a good overview of the overall material and provides enough sample questions for practice. I am now studying for the CPA with Gleim.
Victoria Mikla, EA
Gleim provided me a systematic way to approach and prepare for each part of the EA exam! With Gleim's support along the way, and a lot of dedication, I passed all three tests in four short months.
The Gleim Review System was very thorough, well written, and designed to help achieve success. I found the Gleim Review Test Prep questions beneficial. Having a large pool of questions to study by helped me identify my areas of weakness that I needed to concentrate on in order to pass the test. I would enthusiastically recommend Gleim to friends and coworkers.
Mary Hutson, EA
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.

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.

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!

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.

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!
