Why did you take Roger CPA Review?

After hearing from so many people who failed with other courses but passed with Roger, it was a no-brainer.


What was your favorite aspect of the course?

The ability to study how I want, when I want. The lectures are small enough that I can finish them without taking a break, and are easy to watch because of Roger’s humor. I also love the Interactive Practice Questions. The appearance is very similar to the Exam itself, which makes the test a bit less scary.


How has passing the exam affected your personal and professional life?

Professionally, it demonstrates to others that I take my career seriously. I have been given more responsibility, and am in a better position for promotion. Personally, it is a weight lifted and a testimony to myself. The CPA Exam seemed impossible while I was in college. Now, with two down, I know that I WILL be a CPA, and that is a freaking cool feeling.


What piece of advice do you have for other CPA Exam candidates?

Don’t put it off if you can. Time will pass whether you are studying or not, and in a year or two, you can either say “wow, I’m done”, or “I guess I should start studying”. Don’t beat yourself up over trying to get everything right on the first try. Part of learning is making mistakes and understanding why you are wrong. Also, beer is your best study buddy!


Anything else you would like to share?

I have two dogs and a smokin’ hot wife with a fierce temper.
