Hi and welcome to my site! My name’s David Bryant. I managed to pass the CPA exam finally in December 2008. You can read about my arduous journey on my blog PassTheCPAExam.org.
I wasn’t aware that there were so many CPA exam review programs on the market when I started. Co-workers recommended Becker, which was what I ended up using to prepare for my CPA exams. The result was that I failed all but one of the sections (only passed AUD). That was when I did some research online into other alternatives and first heard about the Yaeger CPA Review Course. From the consumer feedback I saw in forums, people that have used Yaeger seemed unanimous in their vouch for its effectiveness in helping them to pass sections they had failed before.
Since I’ve done quite a bit of research on the topic, I decided to organize the results of my research efforts and create this site to help other CPA hopefuls in choosing a CPA review course. Please note that my failure to make Becker work for me should not undermine the quality of their materials. In fact, as objective as I try to be in my reviews of each CPA course, my reviews are inevitably biased by my personal experiences and my interpretations of consumer feedback that I have read. For this reason, you are encouraged to do your own research to arrive at your own choice of which review course to use.
The best of luck to you on passing the CPA exam on your first try, and I hope that my site has helped you!
