Roger CPA Review is unique in that the instructor attempts to be more entertaining than most. This study program is more affordable than many other options but the website lacked some of the important details we would expect to find on a big purchase. The restrictive period for use may not work for everyone.

Lambers has been in the CPA review business for over 40 years. That's why we thought is odd that their number of reported clientele was much lower than other companies. We also had a tough time getting excited about Lambers approach. An option to buy one package with all the necessary lectures, practice exams and flash cards would have been great.

The CPA Training Center website, which offers the CPA Excel program, was an instant turnoff that made us question the professionalism and accuracy of their study materials. Also a lack of learning options and some customer content on the thoroughness of CPAexcel pushed this company to the bottom of our list.

CPA Reviews

CPA Review programs are more popular now than ever before. When an accountant graduates from college, or an accounting professional decides to study for their CPA certification, the decision shouldn't be taken lightly. Not only are CPA tests expensive, they're also lengthy and extremely challenging. Even the best college students aren't prepared to pass the CPA exam without focused preparation for each section of the four-part test.

For well over 40 years, a number of CPA Review companies have compiled and created study material to significantly help students pass the CPA exam. These CPA Review courses vary greatly in format, features and cost. Choosing the best CPA review program can be overwhelming due to their cost and commitment. No one wants to spend thousands of dollars on a poorly organized and awkward CPA learning system that doesn't meet their personal needs.

When choosing a CPA review program, there are a number of factors you should consider. Some of these include:

  • Instruction Method. Are instructors used to teach the CPA Review material Are the lectures brief or in depth
  • Format. Is the CPA Review program available online, in hard copy, DVD, audio, or web enabled Do they have Smartphone apps to reinforce concepts on the go What is your preferred method of learning and does the CPA Review company offer that option in their product line
  • Price. What does the CPA Review program cost How does that compare to the competition, and what does it include
  • Use. If you're purchasing an online CPA Review program, how long will you have access to the study materials Will that period be long enough Are there additional costs for annual updates
  • Guarantee. If you don't pass your CPA the exam, will you have to re-purchase the CPA Review study materials Or does the company offer a guarantee of any kind
