Our Student of the Month for December 2015 is Kimberlee Lystrup! Congratulations to Kimberlee for passing the CPA Exam and completing a major career goal. We we wish her much success in her future endeavors!


Why did you take Roger CPA Review?

I was able to pass AUD, BEC and FAR the first time through using other study methods; however, some of the nuances of REG eluded me and I fell short by 4 points. I was determined not to let it beat me again and I had heard amazing things about Roger CPA review. Roger was just what I needed to give me the extra edge to help me pass.


How did you hear about our review course?

I heard about the course from a colleague who used Roger CPA Review to prepare for the CPA Exam.


What was your favorite aspect of our course?

Roger's enthusiasm was the best thing about the course by far. I watched the videos with headphones on since my husband and I studied in the same room. More than once he'd have to check and make sure I was really studying. He couldn't believe that REG review could make someone laugh.


How has passing the CPA Exam affected your personal and professional life?

Thanks to Roger CPA Review, I passed REG for good this time and got my CPA license. It's been great to actually have time to spend with my husband after a busy day of work. Additionally, my yearly work bonus is partially tied to my personal goals. My main goal this year was to pass the CPA Exam. Each exam passed was another step toward meeting my professional goals for the year.


Any words of advice for those studying for the CPA exam?

Study, study, study! Roger's review is amazing, but it isn't going to force the knowledge into your head. If you want to pass, you have to put in the time. It'll pay off in the long run.


Favorite Quote?
