Which supplement is better for Fed Tax?
« on: December 28, 2009, 07:35:41 PM »
Chirelstein's Federal Income Taxation or the E&E. If anyone has had an chance to use either or both of these I'd appreciate the feedback. Thanks.

I used both.  Chirelstein was useful to understand the concepts; doing the problems on E&E was also helpful.

I don't like EE. It's quite hard to follow at times. If you have time to do the problems, try to check it out at the library.

I think it depends if you have more problems with the concepts in general or the nitty-gritty math.

I found the E+E more helpful because I needed to do practice problems to get the math straight, but I didn't really need extra conceptual explanation from Chirelstien.
