Accounting

Any suggestions for CPA exam review? Tried the Becker route and was not a huge fan. Looking for a different course that may be more beneficial for someone working as a manager with a heavy workload.

Wiley! It breaks it all into small chunks and allows you to study a little at a time. Buy the extras if you can afford it, they are worth it

I using the Wiley test bank. No summary materials but lots of MCQs and TBSs. Costs ~$550 for all 4 parts.

Roger is the best! The videos are engaging and broken into short chunks. Lots of MCQs. The book is easy to read. I’ve passed 3 with Roger and failed with Becker and Wiley

Wiley back when it was CPA excel was a good deal-you get lifetime access until you pass

Gleim was good. Although, I didn’t use anything besides their MC test bank.

I used Gleim, and worked great. I did everything though, videos, books, and tests. Brutal. But it does work.

How much would be fair to ask for a short 2-4 week pre-MBA internship? It would be a short term consulting project for a well-established company to collect market research. I have 3 YOE in consulting for context and will be entering an MBA program this fall. I'm doing this mainly for more diverse work experience on my resume, so money isn't the main reason here. However, I don't want to low-ball myself either. Thanks in advance!

Looking for opinions on this specific cancel culture thing that happened: I think it's okay for someone to send sexually suggestive messages and DMs to another person if they think they are 18+. Once that person confirms they are NOT 18+, the person should immediately stop sending those messages. This is what happened to that actor Chris D'ella. I think this is perfectly fine(in fact I think this is ideal behavior?) can someone educate me on why people are upset over this?
