Why to Become an Enrolled Agent (EA)
How Exactly Is This Credential Going To Benefit You?
How the Program Works
The Diagnostic Pre-Test
As tax professionals, we all have stronger and weaker areas of our knowledge; some topics we deal with all the time, and understand very well, others we rarely see and barely know. The first step to passing the EA Exam is to know where you need to focus your study. Our diagnostic pre-test system establishes a "baseline" for your study, showing you exactly which areas you'll need to focus on in order to pass the Exam. The diagnostic pre-test also acts as the starting point for our historical analysis feature, which shows how much you've improved since you started using our system!
Now that you know where you are now with our diagnostic pre-test, it's time to really dig into the core of our Program: the Adaptive Drills section. Our Adaptive Drills--a series of questions which mimic the real EA Exam--test you on every single topic area on the Exam, once again allowing you to focus your study time on shoring up weaker areas of your tax knowledge. Explanations are provided for every single question in the Adaptive Drills, including links to the IRS publication that pertain to that question! Using our Adaptive Drills will cement your existing, strong knowledge areas and shore up weaker areas of your knowledge. Using Adaptive Drills is the proven way to pass the EA Exam!
Video Explanations, for Everything (Optional)
Included with our "Total Package" option (described below), you can access detailed video explanations for every single topic on the Exam. We literally go through every topic, in detail, on video. Use the Adaptive Drills to identify those areas where you need further instruction, then use the Video Explanations to obtain that further instruction. Then "rinse and repeat" that process--Adaptive Drills to see where you need explanations, then Video Explanations of those topics--for as many topic areas as you need! Many tax professionals will be able to pass the Exam just using our "Fast Pass" option (described below), but for those who really want to know that you'll pass on the first try, the Video Explanations are a game-changer!
Once you've been using the Adaptive Drills and the explanations of each question to test yourself on every part of the Exam topics, it's time to start working with our Simulated Exams. These practice tests look and feel exactly like the real EA Exam, with the "countdown clock" and everything. Especially if you are someone who has a bit of a phobia about taking tests, it helps tremendously to take these Simulated Exams. If you're not scoring at a passing rate yet, simply go back through the Adaptive Drills and topic explanations, and then come back and take the Simulated Exams again. Once you're consistently passing the Simulated Exams, you'll know--not think, know--you're ready to go pass the Exam with confidence!
