I am working on Wiley MCQs and they look pretty hard: I am able to get right only about 70-75%% on the first attempt. 

How hard are  MCQs on the actual exam? I assume the first testlet is much easier than Wiley's MCQs: just to test basic knowledge. And if you do well on the first testlet the 2nd and 3rd are much harder and level is comparable to Wiley's MCqs.

Please comment. Thanks in Advance.

The questions are very similar to Wiley...I actually had quite a few questions from the Wiley book verbatim!!! Good Luck!!!

As far as I know they are very similar to Wiley questions. Try to do MCQs from different sources as well. I'm doing gleim, becker and wiley currently.

Thank you, lkbcpa2b, cpaexamscore74!

Actually, I thought there are more Wiley users who took the test already and can compare the level of questions. I just don't want to either underestimate and fail or overestimate and burn myself - I have two more tests after the Audit. I am redoing the Wiley MSQs 2nd time and pass rate is about 85% now, but some question I did right only because I remember correct answers. Time is tight and I am thinking about a good complement MCQ material. By good I mean something close to actual exam MCQs. 

cpaexamscore74,

I am using Wiley 08 and getting Wiley14.0. I was thinking about complementing it by Gleim software. I expect pretty much overlap in questions between Wiley book and 14.0 soft., but is there any overlap in questions between Wiley 14.0 and Gleim soft?

You'll have plenty of questions to do between wiley and gleim. I wouldn't worry too much about overlap.
