CPA Review Courses


I personally used material from both Roger Phillips and the Becker.


From Becker, I attended the live classes and did some of their exercise questions.


I used also the Roger Phillips videos and cram course books to hone in subjects right before the exams.


I was fortunate to have some of my costs be paid by my future employer, which allowed me to get both courses.


I took all 4 exams in a period of 8 days and passed 3 of the exams. This was a few weeks before I started working full time for Ernst & Young.  I re-took the audit exam a few months later passing with a 75! Luck was on my side here.
