Our Student of the Month for July 2015 is Jeannie Satterfield! Jeannie was able to pass FAR, even after a viral brain infection left her with epileptic seizures that had to be controlled by having part of her brain removed. She continues to be succesful in both her career and studies! We are proud to have Jeannie as a Roger CPA Review student and wish her great success on the rest of her CPA journey!
Why did you take Roger CPA Review?: After watching a course demo, I was convinced that Roger could make this challenge enjoyable! The online course platform and the mobile apps make studying so convenient.
How did you hear about our review course?: I searched high and low online and found the Roger CPA student testimonials were the most promising to me.
What was your favorite aspect of our course?: Roger takes the most dull topics and makes them interesting!
How has passing part of the CPA Exam affected your personal and professional life?: Passing FAR has proved my commitment to my profession and has assured confidence in my abilities.
I had half of the memory and learning center of my brain removed 2 years ago due to a brain infection. While my memory is just fine, it's still intimidating to take on a task like this! Lots of studying and praying made it possible. If you fully commit to your goals, you will accomplish them, even if you have half a brain! Haha!
Any words of advice for those studying for the CPA exam?: Don’t waste your time reading CPA Exam horror stories online! Spend that time studying. If you study what is provided in the course, YOU WILL PASS. I was so nervous on exam day, but I completed the exam in three hours instead of four with a score of 83! If you have prepared well, you have nothing to be afraid of.
Favorite Quote: "Success is determined not by whether or not you face obstacles, but by your reaction to them. And if you look at these obstacles as a containing fence, they become your excuse for failure. If you look at them as a hurdle, each one strengthens you for the next.” -Dr. Ben Carson
