    Testing for this cycle ends Feb. 28. The new testing cycle begins May 1. Most people in our group allow 4 - 6 weeks for SEE1, 6 - 8 weeks for SEE2, 4 - 6 weeks for SEE3. This is based on 2 hours a day study time.

    Decide on a study guide. Map out a study plan. Schedule a test. If you are a facebook user, we have a group where we ask and answer questions and generally help each other understand some topics better that we don’t have a lot of experience with. I was scared too. I had been doing taxes 38 years when I decided I just wanted to prove to myself that I could do it. I also wanted my daughter to do it so I needed to set the example for her. Best of luck to you. PS - I used Passkey book, study guide and online subscription. I was very happy with them.

    2nd Release

    If my memory is correct you will need to go to the download center, download it and install it. I don't beleive that it updates from within the inital release. I just wandered in to the download center and I see that Drake Accounting 2018 and CWU 2018 is now available.

    2nd Release

    From Drake today..........."The second installation of Drake Tax 2017 will be released on January 4, 2018. After installing this second release, you may begin preparing and transmitting returns to Drake. We will hold those returns "in queue" until the IRS begins accepting returns. As of now, the IRS has not released a start date for e-file processing. However, we will let you know that start date once the IRS announcement has been made."
  13. I reset it yesterday. I believe there was a link "forgot password". I clicked it and it sent me an email to reset it with.
  14. I tried it today. It told me my info didn't match anything and I needed to re-register. When I tried that, it told me that there was already an account with that info. From that it said there was a password mis-match and to reset the password. Once I did that it let me right in.

    Practitioner Education

    @TAXMAN I used Passkey Books and their online subscription. We have an IRS Exam Study Group here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/142932752497488/ or search "IRS Exam Study Group" on Facebook if interested. I took part 2 first, then 1, then 3 but part 2 had questions from part 1 and part 3 had questions from 1 and 2. This was 2016. This year group members have been reporting lots of questions on basis, farming and estates.
