National Society of Accountants Updates Enrolled Agent Exam Review Course

Conforms to changes in the new EA exam

Alexandria, VA, June 14, 2011 — The 2011 NSA Enrolled Agent (EA) Exam Review Course, a comprehensive, three-volume reference resource, has been completely updated to conform to revisions to the EA exam and changes to tax laws.

The range of topics has also been expanded and the course has also been updated to match changes in the exam format made by Prometric, the company that administers the EA exam.

Available in print, CD-ROM, and PDF formats, the study guide for the course is written by John O. Everett, Ph.D., CPA, a nationally recognized tax author and lecturer. It includes hundreds of previous exam questions, which are explained and analyzed. This guide is unique compared to other study guides through its emphasis on diagrams, examples, and case studies that allow practitioners to learn the law and not just memorize facts.

Practitioners who have taken the NSA course to help them pass the EA exam have raved about how much it helped them.

Kenneth L. Kindig, EA, ATA, based in John Day, OR, who passed all three parts of the EA exam on the first attempt, said, “The only material I used for my review was the NSA material, and it was right on. Part 3 even included some test-taking techniques for answering questions where the answers were not obvious. I did not use any material other than that provided on the CD.”

Donica Campbell of Arlington, TX, praised the course for helping her pass Part 1 of the exam: “The review course exceeded all of my expectations and actually was harder that the actual exam. Now I am confident enough to know I will be well prepared for the next two parts.”

The course will not only help people pass the Enrolled Agent exam the first time, but is also an excellent resource for staff training on tax issues and as a refresher course on tax issues.

The course can also help people prepare for exams offered by the Accreditation Council for Accountancy and Taxation (ACAT). These ACAT exams are needed for individuals to obtain credentials such as the Accredited Tax Preparer (ATP) and Accredited Tax Advisor (ATA).

The depth of information taught in this course is also more than sufficient to prepare for the IRS tax preparer tests.
