Stephanie Ng of ipasscpaexam.com shares her story with Roger CPA Review! She tells us how she went from passing the CPA Exam to setting up an extremely valuable resource for CPA Exam candidates.
1. You currently run one of the most highly used CPA Exam websites for national and international Thanks for the compliment! I started out as an investment banker in New York and went on to work for a client in their corporate finance team in Hong Kong, where my boyfriend (now husband) lived. After accepting my boss challenge to pass the CPA exam within a year, I took the 4 parts in one go and passed on my first attempt. We as a family love growing vegetables on the balcony of our apartment (we live on the 49th floor!)

-AUD: AUD is essentially a memorization exam. I strongly encourage my readers to write their own flash cards for AUD to help retention. I also copied the audit opinion a few times and it helped a lot. AUD has a lot of conceptual questions which are quite tricky, e.g. there is more than one correct answer and you need to pick the best answer. Make sure you work on lots of practice questions and get used to the format.
-REG: REG is especially difficult for international candidates because they are not familiar with the US tax system. It is a good idea to allocate more time for this exam section.
Yes! Rogers style is especially great for those who need motivation in going through the study materials. Most of us dont find accounting terribly interesting so many candidates fall in this category.
