Even though tax season is at its height, I took the time to study my Gleim EA materials. I am so glad that I did! I did a review of filing requirements and discovered some very important information relating to dependents. I always seem to learn something new whenever I study filing requirements.
I appreciate the gradient approach to learning with Gleim. The first quiz is always very enlightening, and I usually discover that I have a lot more to learn than I thought I did! After taking the quiz, I go through each missed question and get the correct information. I’m finding that this is a great way to learn. I acquire a much better understanding by looking at each question. There may be details that I missed, which then become clear to me. This ensures that I will not miss a question because of those details next time. It also gives me a more interesting and interactive method of learning. I am able to keep my interest at a much higher level than if I were just reading the material and not interacting with it.
The quiz also prepares me for the next section and gives me a higher awareness when I study the overview. I enjoy this material because it covers general information and is easy to assimilate. I don’t get bogged down in the details. I go through the main points and get some basic understanding of that section. This, again, is a great approach to learning. I know I would not do as well if I just sat down and read the study section.
Reviewing my results right after the quiz allows me to find all the correct answers to the questions that I just missed a second time. This makes my awareness of those questions very high. Again, I feel that I will not miss these question the next time I see them.
I am very impressed so far with this method of study by Gleim and look forward to becoming an EA this year!
