“I have a dream!” It’s neither as philanthropic nor as selfless as Martin Luther King, Jr’s dream, but it’s still important to reach for it! I want to be a CPA! As history teaches us, trials and tribulations are inevitable, but they will make the realization of that dream even more rewarding! Don’t ever give up!!

And now for the latest installment in my journey to make my dream come true…

I was looking forward to reviewing the business law portions of REG, because those were classes I really enjoyed and found interesting back in school. Now that I’m working my way through the material, I have to admit that many of the tax sections in REG are NOT review for me.

Luckily, I’ve noticed that my Roger CPA Review course tends to intertwine the business law and structures sections throughout the tax sections. If it wasn’t for the anti-monopoly laws and sections on professional ethics, I’d be really nervous cramming ONLY tax knowledge into my brain. For some reason, I just can’t seem to focus as well on taxation.

The only tax course I took at school was online and only covered individual taxation. Between that course and my own experience using free tax software to file my own taxes, I’ve barely scratched the surface of this material prior to now.

Thankfully, I don’t have to worry too much about my lack of knowledge or experience with ANY CPA exam topics. One of the best benefits of studying with Roger CPA Review is that he takes nothing for granted.

Roger teaches every lecture and topic as if the student is seeing it for the first time. He explains everything in an understandable way, always incorporating real world scenarios and finding ways to express complicated matters clearly and succinctly.

Once again, I’m so glad I chose this course. I don’t have time to be battling against a poor teaching style or trying to figure out the material on my own. I can always rely on the lectures to plant the foundation of what I need to know and the notes/homework to reinforce the fine details.

Whether it’s an ACTUAL review for the CPA exams or truthfully learning the material from scratch, I know that by the end of this course, I’ll feel prepared to go in and kick that exam’s butt!! Stick to the plan, and you’ll know you’ve done everything in your power to succeed. Happy studying!
