I decided to go with BISK / CPA Ready commuter package which consist of audio cd's, software with lots of questions and a text book.
My biggest challenge now is finding time to study.

Good luck to everyone

I honestly think study programs are irrelevant to success. I've heard people who spend thousands on classes and still fail, and I've heard people buy the cheapest study materials they could find and pass with flying colors. I think the most important tool for the CPA exam is discipline and a good memory! I'm sending in my credits to be evaluated in the fall and asking for WILEY books for my birthday and Christmas, I will finish my MBA next Spring/Summer and then I'll be ready to tackle this test. I am at my 150 hours now, but I know I don't have time to study for the exam while taking classes and working...

My Yaeger Home Study for REG was just delivered today I hope its not a flop - but reading Wiley on my own for REG is no fun either.

I've been using the Wiley review books and recently purchased BEC video review from Yaeger CPA Review. I have to say, I don't think I'll buy another of their review programs for any of the other sections. The first set of video lectures for the first module of BEC was great (taught by Phil Yaeger, himself), after that they have been using other instructors. I'm about to start watching the financial management videos, and I'm hoping they're better than IT or Econ. In those two modules, the instructors read from the Wiley books a lot. I was a little disappointed. I can read the books on my own - I need an expanded explanation, not a "Read-word-for-word" lecture.

The Wiley books are pretty good, so I think I'll stick with them for the rest of the sections, but next section - AUD - I'm going to try Gleim Online, that way I can access the review materials anywhere, anytime.

I may try Roger CPA for FAR - he seems to really do a great job of explaining confusing concepts, at least from what I've seen on his demos on the site.

I have used Becker CPA Review, Wiley CPA Review and Roger CPA Review. I have found that Roger works best. Becker used the best format of questions, I will give them that, but when it comes to lectures, Roger is the BEST. He keeps you interested and he makes it fun. He explains the information like you are learning it for the first time and his staff is wonderful. Ask for Kristan when you call. She was awesome. Roger's lecture also comes with Wiley database of questions.

His website is rogercpareview.com. It was worth it.

Hi Team!

Sorry I have been away, I plan to get back into my studies in about 8 weeks after I finish my classes for work.

I'm going to have to get new study materials. I wanted to get everyone's feel on the different study review programs they have participated in.

I think in not only help me, but any new comers to the team or anyone that has to recommit themselves to their studies.

Good luck to everyone
