2. Adaptive Learning Exams:

While adaptive learning has been around for a number of years, the incorporation into training programs is becoming quite popular and the leading EA exam prep providers incorporate it.  The benefit of adaptive learning is that instead of having to answer hundreds of questions, the web based computer software is able to detect which concepts that you have mastered and which ones that you need additional review of.  So instead of asking you ten or twenty similar questions of a concept you have already proven you know, the software automatically makes note that you have mastered that topic and moves onto the next topic covered on the EA exam.  Not only has adaptive testing and adaptive exam preparation proven more effective, but it ultimately allows you to prepare to take the exam much quicker and have more time to focus on areas where you need further review.

1. No Video Lectures:

The Gryfin EA review software does lack video lectures, so if you are looking for that type of training this may not be the best exam preparation software for you.  On the flip side, full review programs with online courses or video training do cost substantially more and with many book and other training aids available, many students do not feel this is really a weakness in the software.  When you compare the fact that the Gryfin EA software can be used across all devices, comes with a 100% pass guarantee and costs 1/3 or 1/4th of the price of some of the full featured video courses, it is easy to see the benefits far outweigh the weakness’s.

For those students and test takers who are more visual learners or do not have any finance or tax preparation experience, the Gryfin EA software may not be the best course for you.  In the event that you want more traditional preparation and instructor lead coaching on passing the EA exam, you may want to look at another course that incorporates video training or online instruction.
