About Us

Before we begin, let us assure you that this website is not "About Us." This website is about helping you to pass the CPA Exam. That is our only goal — to help you get the 75 points you need to achieve success. Riza is a CPA who sent us her unsolicited comments. She’s just one of many others.

"I'm Riza R. from Los Angeles, CA.  I cried this morning when I saw that I passed AUD with 84.  This is my last part of the CPA Exams.  This has been a very long journey for me.  I graduated from College more than 25 years ago in a foreign country so it was really difficult for me but when a friend introduced me to your website, I found a new hope. Your inspiring words kept me going. I used your free questions to better understand what I hardly understand from the review materials that I paid for in the big CPA review (sic).  Joe, you are my hero, you are a very nice person and I thank God for people like you.

Thank you,

Since 2008, we have helped accountants become CPAs and we want YOU to be the next. All of those candidates passed and so can you. We believe that completely. Our experience has shown that any candidate who invests sufficient time using good quality materials can pass the CPA Exam. You provide the time; we provide the materials. Even if you are currently using another review course, we can help you pass! Most candidates use more than one course to prepare for the exam.

If we provide assistance and you pass, then we are delighted. If you have any suggestions on how we can make this website more effective, please let us know. We are always looking for good ideas. Over the years, our best ideas have come from CPA candidates because they spend so much time thinking about adding points in order to pass the exam. We want this to be a community. We hope you will tell others about us; we hope you will provide us with ideas that we can share with others.

Okay, who are we? We are three individuals with over sixty years of experience in CPA Exam Review. We have had the great good fortune during that time of working with candidates from around the world. We believe that we know how to get candidates successfully through the CPA Exam and we want to share that knowledge with you.

And, we are willing to do it for FREE. We will include a few ads or some premium content to pay for this site but that is not our goal. Our goal is to provide high quality questions and answers so that you do not have to pay $1500-$3,000 to prepare for the CPA Exam. No matter what we do in the future, the questions are ready for you now and free. Use them to start adding the points you need to get those passing scores. If they are helpful, tell your friends (or tell your enemies and maybe they will become your friends). If you see where we can provide more assistance, tell us.. That seems fair to us.
