Customer Reviews

Peter 07/2/2018
I think it is a very useful system with many different components to help you learn the way words best.
Dislikes The site tends to breakdown occasionally
Diane 06/20/2018
The detailed explanation/reasoning to multiple choice answers. Feedback is excellent on missed questions.
Dislikes Organization for study is not great.....
Trevor 05/11/2018
The sections are broken down into pieces to help digest information more easily.
Dislikes There isn't a way to cram multiple-choice questions easily like there is on CPA Review for Free.
Oluwatomisin 05/4/2018
The bite size portion and flexibility of the study guide.

Dislikes There are often software issues.
Matthew 05/2/2018
The lessons are bite sized and easy to listen to. Text is clear and complete. And there are many questions to practice with.
Dislikes Some grammatical errors in the text. The mobile app isn't that good. If I watch a video on the app, it doesn't show as having been watched in the desktop version.
Ameerah 04/28/2018
The CPA Course is very well organized and easy to follow.
Dislikes Not applicable
kleen 04/12/2018

Dislikes Some questions are somewhat vague.
Taylor 04/4/2018
Very thorough with Study Guide.
Dislikes The Study Guide does not contain practice tests.
Taury 03/1/2018
I enjoy the short video lectures, they hold my attention. I really like the study planner, it is helpful to keep me on schedule.
Dislikes The phone app does not always work correctly, it does not synch with the web material. It makes it hard to study effectively when you are doing the same questions over and over again because the web questions and app questions are not tracking correctly. I have also had trouble with some of the simulations not working right, or having incorrect answers.
Kaylee 02/21/2018
Breaking down by module
Dislikes Flagging doesn't work
patrick 02/20/2018
The short videos with good practice questions.
Dislikes Some of the instructors are not as good as others
Neha 02/19/2018

Shorter study sections. Study plan
Dislikes Wish there were more questions after each topic and at the end of a section.

Very detailed level of material.
Dislikes All the videos. While instructive, they did not help too much in the application process.
Jaz 11/24/2017

Maria 11/20/2017
Very detailed and covers the area of the exam extensively.
Dislikes Cost. Tend to be expensive compared to other CPA review course.
Shanna 11/10/2017
Thorough explanations on all subjects.
Dislikes No forum to study questions that is not timed. I understand we are timed on the exam but when I'm studying sometimes especially if I'm unfamiliar with a topic I need time to digest it before I start worrying about racing the clock.
C 11/3/2017
Comprehensive information
Dislikes Questions do not mirror CPA exam format, and I only need to assess the basic format and kind of questions I will be answering in order to be prepared for the exam. I am a seasoned auditor (8 years) in large local office firm and used my experience plus cpareviewforfree to pass AUD, FAR and BEC without the assistance of Wiley. I passed on my first try for each. I found that while Wiley was comprehensive in information, it was sometimes too burdensome and did not explain the overarching thought processes necessary to make a conclusion on an issue/question. In essecence, Wiley was far more form over substance than I liked.
SOPHIA 11/2/2017
The bite size videos.
Dislikes The test bank when a question is incorrect does not provide proper explanation of why that was the best answer or why the selected answer was incorrect. The response is usually not clear and facility learning .
MONIKA 10/25/2017
everything.. virtual classes are amazing
Dislikes nothing..
mbaye 10/24/2017
The exam-like questions along with the explanations to help you understand better.
Dislikes Pricing could be more competitive than it is.
Lien 09/29/2017
Good for referencing but not for study materials.
Dislikes Feel that the materials are not that well organized.
Chris 09/28/2017
Great questions and explanations.
Dislikes Not able to pause the time (e.g., bathroom break).
Kimblian 09/19/2017
Breaks down lesson into small parts for easy understanding
Dislikes Sometimes misses the big picture, information is not 'pulled together' as well to assist in answering questions.
Ashish 09/11/2017
I liked the MCQ section but felt that theory explanation(course material) is real bulk.
Dislikes Bulky theories
Leo Angelo 09/6/2017
I only did the study guide
Dislikes Limited questions. some of them are too easy
Conchata 09/5/2017
Very thorough; great examples
Dislikes Not easily to navigate through lectures and questions
Demario 08/30/2017
The questions are thorough and relates the course material.
Dislikes Nothing at this moment.
Derek 08/30/2017
Test bank and sample tests
Dislikes Study plan and new interface, black/white text, not a lot of chart summaries
Cong 08/24/2017
bit size lessons, the test interface is exactly what you will see in the exam which is very helpful since you are familiar with the interface already.
Dislikes I feel like some of the auditing subjects are not missing in the course, so I'm a little bit worried.
Daniel 08/23/2017
Hand me downs from a cousin
Dislikes Books, boring.......
Stephannie 08/23/2017
The practice questions after every mini lesson. Also the bite sized lessons.
Dislikes Not much I didnt like - wish the flash cards had more formulas in them, but those are easy enough to make on my own.
Obaid 08/21/2017
Testbank questions and tracker
Dislikes phone software not upto par
andrew 08/20/2017
Lots of practice questions
Dislikes need to prioritize the information
Wilson 08/18/2017
Reading material was easy to follow
Dislikes Not enough explanation on answers
Raegen 08/16/2017
in detail information
Dislikes lengthy lessons
Ben 08/16/2017
It taught me a lot of the things that I needed to know for the exam and gave some very helpful tips.
Dislikes I noticed some errors in the text provided by Wiley/CPA Excel. Some of these errors were merely grammatical and had no large effect on my studies. However, some of the errors were with the numbers and equations, making studying confusing at times. Either way, I think it shows that the company does not proofread its material as best as it can and at best shows sloppy work. It does raise some doubt as to whether or not I am receiving the best study material.
Aren 08/8/2017
Brief sections, big test bank
Dislikes No complaints
Ankur 08/4/2017
detailed lectures and book

I'm using only the textbook and focus notes from Wiley. I like that the information is brief and to the point.
Dislikes I've heard that the lectures are very boring which is why I chose not to purchase the entire course.
Jay 07/5/2017
The course structure which includes short video, study notes, MCQs, True & False for knowledge check, slides, flashcards and test for each of the lesson.
Dislikes Sometimes there's a technical glitch. Also the work done in laptop/PC doesn't easily sync with mobile app. Lastly, it would be great to have slides and study text in app.
Kevin 07/1/2017
Very in depth and thorough.
Dislikes Sometimes the software is a bit too cumbersome.

Dislikes Nothing in particular.
Steven 06/6/2017
The offer brief overview of each section allowing for memory to kick in as well as topic based questions. But offer combined overall testlets in the appendix
Dislikes Sometimes the overview is too detailed and general that it doesn't hit directly on questions that may be asked.
Ben 05/28/2017
Content is well organized, in-depth, and representative of what actually appears on the CPA exam.
Dislikes No computerized component as the actual exam is. Limited simulation practice questions in book.
Gary 05/19/2017
Seems like all of the information is made available and is organized well.
Dislikes The volume of information is too much to easily consume. There should be more questions, answers, and explanations available for review.

Good quality questions. Excellent explanations of answers provided.

Noman 03/8/2017
The course material contains all of the information necessary and goes into sufficient detail to obtain an understanding of the material that is sufficient for the exam.
Dislikes The organization of the information can be confusing at times and the outline format may fall short when explaining more detailed concepts.
Jessica 03/2/2017
structure, study plan
Dislikes lots to take in
H 02/27/2017
Question and explanations
Dislikes Overwhelming
sabron 02/26/2017
It was very user friendly. It also cover most of the information that I saw on the REG exam.
Dislikes I took about 11 practice tests, which I was scoring between 80 - 87 most times. I began noticing that although they offered 1200 plus questions, the exams keep repeating the same few questions over and over. I would suggest a better algorithm.
Dana 02/24/2017
I liked the small lessons and all of the test bank questions.
Dislikes Well -- I have taken 3 of the tests and have only passed one. Not sure if I can plan the course or just me. At least Wiley continues to update and lets me to continue studying until I do finally pass.
Kenan 02/18/2017
its relatively cheap.
Dislikes the website crashed a lot.
Beau 02/13/2017
Seems to cover the material well enough.

ASH 02/2/2017
Feedback per question
Dislikes It does not really identify your weak areas
saima 01/31/2017
it is very detailed ,gives you a good understanding of all the topics that will be covered on the exam.
Dislikes it is not very structured.
Aswini 01/24/2017
Many sample questions
Dislikes FAR module could be in 2 volumes
Nick 01/6/2017
I like the amount of questions and how the answers are structured. I like they have simulations
Dislikes I didnt like that once you got the answer wrong it always stayed in the incorrect file. I would say the CPA review focuses on minor details that i missed with Wiley.
C 01/4/2017
I saw questions that were not included in the wiley efficient learning test bank and the book.
Dislikes More questions needed that are expected to be seen on a exam setting. Some questions were repetitive, similar to the test bank repetitive questions.
Steven 01/4/2017
I think the test bank was very useful and the reason that I am understanding the material.
Dislikes I think the lectures and book provide to much information and end up taking to much time for my style of learning. Thus they don't end up being useful. I wish I would have just bought the test bank alone.
Spencer 12/28/2016
Good lectures and material, lots of questions to review.
Dislikes Lots of material that my be overkill for the exam.
Dorothy 12/15/2016
Large database of questions
Dislikes Answer explanations sometimes do not match questions
Michael 12/8/2016
I liked the explanations given. I also like the simulation based practice questions

Amanda 12/7/2016
Video tutorials. Lessons are bite-size, easy to absorb.
Dislikes Dashboard not easy to read
Patricia 12/6/2016
I like that you can create your own study quiz and you can see what percentage you have mastered per topic.
Dislikes I do not like that it was not available one time online. Also I do not like that it is not unlimited until you pass.
Jeffrey 12/1/2016
Bite size chunks, easy to study in small time intervals. Also can easily use the various tools to study in a way that works for you.
Dislikes The videos just repeat what is in the study guide, there is little additional value from watching the videos in terms of gaining additional insights vs. the written study guide.
Magdalena 11/27/2016
The books are very details and you could go at your own pace
Dislikes LIked just about everything
Karen 11/26/2016

Dislikes Typos and errors in content
STEVEN 11/18/2016
detailed information and good questions

Jason 11/17/2016
Not much so far. The book has not presented the information in a way that aligns with the practice tests.
Dislikes I still have a lot of work to get ready for the exam because I don't feel the Wiley has sufficiently prepared me to sit for it.
kristi 11/14/2016
well organized topics
Dislikes too expensive
Sana 11/9/2016
The questions and layout is exactly how it is on the CPA. Everything is organized in a convenient way as well, which makes it easier to study and practice.

i liked that the questions resembled those of hte actual exam.
Dislikes i didn't like all the material to get through- too much detail
Tom 11/3/2016
The database of questions that were offered.
Dislikes Lectures were too dry; basically reading the information straight from the book without any further developing the ideas/concepts.
Ryan 11/3/2016
I liked the variety of practice questions and the detailed explanations were very clear.
Dislikes The modules were a bit dry, but I'm not sure if that is a Wiley complaint, or just the material in general.
Shelia 10/25/2016
The breakdown of the study material. I like how the program is set up.
Dislikes The information was outdated. None of the questions and written communication practice was helpful in testing. The material was not familiar when taking the exam. It was most useful when I took the BEC the first time and not this pass time. I did worst actually.

Having lots of questions

Dislikes The flashcards were not as relevant as I would have liked. They were too specific on most of the topics.
Curtis 10/5/2016
It goes into a lot of detail.
Dislikes It's redundant, making the reading much longer and difficult to comprehend. There are gramatical errors.
Karissa 10/4/2016
The way the textbooks are broken up into bite size lessons and the additional online question bank. I also liked the focus notes to use as review the week before the exam.
Dislikes The flashcards were pretty bad.
Sandy 10/3/2016
short lessons, work at my own pace
Dislikes Often sections were TOO short or too long. Need more consistent lessons to plan time better

Good practice for the exam.

Alisa 09/26/2016
very detailed, good exam plan and schedule tracker, straight to the point material, love the bite sized sections/lectures, you must put time in, as with any other exam, to fully master it.
Dislikes can be a bit difficult to understand if you don't have an accounting backround/classes. one lecturer in particular was so boring I stopped watching those lectures.
Chaketa 09/24/2016
thorough explanation of why the answer is incorrect or correct Also, I found it beneficial that material is broken up in bite size pieces, it makes it easier to learn the material.

Comprehensive. Good if you have a busy schedule and cannot to a live program. More affordable than Becker.

Comprehensive text Book
Dislikes Simulations
Altynay 09/18/2016

Jeffrey 08/31/2016
Pacing and general preparedness
Dislikes Sims in the course software are very glitchy, also there are periods of online downtime lately.

Different type of questions being asked
Dislikes No second chance to answer if you misclicked with out having to reatake
Theresa 08/30/2016

Dislikes Lots of typos in the book. Sometimes examples were unclear.

Dislikes The mobile app does not work well and it never accepted my login.
Miya 08/27/2016
Easy to use but do not waste time with the videos if you are trying to get through the material efficiently.
Dislikes The way they grade all the assignments and give an overall grade. If I get an answer wrong on an exam I just want to review why its wrong. It takes too much time to get a perfect overall "100" in their system.
Kevin 08/27/2016
It allowed me to cover the material fairly comprehensively at my own pace
Dislikes The online simulations in the test bank are clunky
Michael 08/27/2016

LaToya 08/21/2016
being able to use the virtual classrooms and the variety of MCQs and simulations.
Dislikes the lecture videos with some of the faculty were boring
Jagadeesh 08/21/2016
Answer explanations are really good
Dislikes Need to add new set of questions
Jen 08/20/2016
Just a disclaimer--I only used the review books because I could not afford the entire course. That said, I really liked the number and variety of questions provided. The simulations, while somewhat different in that they were printed, were also very helpful.
Dislikes I was disappointed with the content of the modules. There were a lot of questions I felt that the modules didn't adequately prepare me to answer. I understand, though, that the introduction gave a fair warning that a student may need to consult outside sources, depending on his/her academic background. Maybe using just the books would be more appropriate for someone who saved their course materials or had a very thorough (and recent, or well-retained) academic background.
James 08/20/2016
I loved the Wiley/CPA Excel course. A lot of MC questions to work with. And gave me a thorough explanation of solutions and the material.
Dislikes Nothing really. I just wanted to get more MC questions on REG on this website.
Rajashree 08/20/2016
Their questions are quiet similar to the exam questions or to any other review course
Dislikes The format is not similar to the exam database like calculator option and searching on the database for the Simulation questions

Small lessons. Lots of multiple choice questions
Dislikes No app
Jacqueline 08/19/2016
Notes what is important in the notes

covers all content in great detail. shorter lectures
Dislikes not as easy to navigate
