The questions will generally BE the same because they are culled from past tests.
Repetition - going over those questions again and again and.......every waking hour of your life till you pass it.

this is what I was afraid of...

well I am not with you on that. Once I go over the question more than twice I tend to memorize the answer but might forget (not understand) the underlying concept. I would rather have different configurations of questions that test those concepts. The reason : the questions will not repeat on the real exam so why would I fo over those questions more than 2 times ?

The way it works is that if you know Wiley, or any of the others, cold, you [most likely, should, ... pick your own weasel word] will pass that section of the test.
The uniform c.p.a. examination is based on a defined and published body of knowledge. AFAIK, all the major study programs are keyed to that. In a general way, and figuring you have the educational background to understand the material, they teach the test.
The secret isn't buying the right study guide. The secret is putting in enough hours to learn the material well enough to pass the test.
On the old paper & pencil test you also had to study how to take a test. Becker made a major issue on this. I have not heard anything on special skills that benefit candidates on the new testing modality.
Best of luck, just what the world needs more overhead........

No, but I will say I have been told that people who did satisfactory in school could almost always pass the OLD exam with around 800 hours studying Gleim, etc. From my experience, I agreed with what they told me.

Yes.

You might also want to look at the nasba.org site.
The exam is no secret. Depending on how well one did in school and ones willingness to put in the necessary study hours, it is not hard to pass. People have problems when they won't put in the hours. If you know Wiley cold, something really out of the ordinary has to happen not to pass.
