An Enrolled Agent is a credential awarded by the US Treasury/Internal Revenue Service that allows the credential holder to represent taxpayers before the Internal Revenue Service. The Enrolled Agent credential is the highest credential that the Internal Revenue Service Awards.

I strongly urge all of my accounting students to obtain their Enrolled Agent credentials. While the exam is rigorous, it is manageable. The exam is divided into three parts: 1) Individuals, 2) Businesses, and 3) Representation, Practices and Procedure. Section 2--Businesses, is by far the most difficult section.
My recommendation is to use the Gleim Enrolled Agent Review Course. This is the study course that I used for my Enrolled Agent exam, and I also plan to use Gleim for the CPA and CMA exams.

My recommendation is to purchase either the Traditional or Premium review systems.
