NSA's Live Enrolled Agent Exam Review Course
August 19-21, 2019
Charlotte Marriott City Center
Charlotte, NC

NSA's course offers a fast-paced, comprehensive review to get you through the EA Exam the first time. 

The EA exam beginning on July 1st will be based on the new laws of the 2017 Act. There were many changes in individual and business taxation, and there are quite likely many provisions that you did not encounter this tax season.

The heart of this course is a set of comprehensive PowerPoint slides, organized by topic with hundreds of review questions covered in class. John and Bill will walk you through the maze of law, answer your questions, and provide valuable test-taking tips.  Take a look at this partial excerpt from Module 10 of Part 2 on the QBID and see if this is the approach for you.

Included with Registration for this course:

  • Breakfast;
  • The NSA EA Exam Review Course Books in PDF form at no extra charge;
  • Study Guides; and
  • Access the NSA’s EA Exam Review Course Community where you can ask questions and communicate with other course registrants.

Enhance your professional profile, add a valuable credential to your career, and most importantly, increase your bottom line!

I have taken and passed all three parts and filed form 23!  Thank you John and Bill for teaching an outstanding EA Exam Course. I couldn't have done it without you!
