Our Student of the Month for November 2015 is Matthew Dossett! Matthew tried several other CPA Review demonstrations before purchasing Roger CPA Review. He decided that he wasn't going to pay a premium for a review course that was harder to follow. Since passing the CPA Exam, Matthew has been able to advance in his career and continues to see opportunities with his CPA designation. Congratulations to Matthew on a job well done and we wish him much success in his future endeavors!
Why did you take Roger CPA Review?
I tried all of the demos for all of the CPA review programs that I knew about before purchasing a review course. Roger's demo was by far the best. I liked his teaching style and energy. I can remember with the other demos, after a few minutes I was watching the clock wondering how much longer until the demo ended, but with Roger it wasn't that way. So for me it was an easy decision to make.
How did you hear about our review course?
I heard about Roger CPA Review, from another classmate who said I should check it out. Of course up until that point, I thought that I would go with Becker (more expensive), but after the demos, there was no way. I wasn't going to pay a premium for a program that was harder to follow.
What was your favorite aspect of our course?
Roger is funny. I laughed at some point in most of his videos. "He's chasing the carrot."...and I found my self quoting Roger at random times - "TT BPO 75 or 90!"
How has passing the CPA Exam affected your personal and professional life?
Passing the CPA exams in the short term means that I don't have to study. In the long term and professionally, it will impact my career path by allowing me to advance further in my career. As an Accounting Manager for a corporate accounting team, I was as high as I could possibly go without a CPA. Now the sky is the limit.
Any words of advice for those studying for the CPA exam?
In Roger's own words, "If you study, you will pass!"
"They've done studies, you know. 60% of the time, it works every time."
