You will be able to use an onscreen calculator during the examination. Prometric will provide you a handheld calculator to use during the examination. You are not allowed to bring your own calculator to the test center.

You will be provided with a packet of scratch paper and a pencil to use during the examination. You may not bring your own scratch paper or pencil.

What Our Customers Say

I just wanted to thank you for the great review product you put out for the EA exam. I used your system exclusively in order to study for the exam and I passed all three parts, on the first try and in under 30 days! Your practice quizzes and tests are extremely affordable and exactly like the EA exam. They more than prepare the student for the real deal. I’d recommend you to anyone thinking of taking the EA exam.

Your review material is by far the best out there and I’ve purchased most of them trying to find one that will prepare me. Yours is the best by far! As a future EA I will refer everyone who is studying for the exam to your material! Great job!!

I am very glad I found your program. So many others are several hundreds more and would only produce the same results. Thank you so much for making it possible for me to afford the assistance I needed to pass the SEE's.

I would like to thank you for your excellent training guides for the Enrolled Agent exam. The study guide was in depth and all encompassing, and the online practice quizzes and tests helped me to identify areas where improvement was needed. The test questions dealing with calculations really helped me excel on my exams where math was involved. And above all, the price didn't break my bank account! I would highly recommend it!
