I am looking at getting a CPA review course and wanted to determine which one is best. I know Becker is know as the best but I heard Roger was very good as well. Looking for suggestions from anyone that has passed the exam. Thanks.

Loved Roger! The videos are shorter and easy to keep focus on, plus he’s a little crazy so it adds entertainment. I hated the Becker videos

Roger all the way. He’s funny af and even throws in some dirty jokes lol. Passed all of them on the first try in 6 months but was only interning part-time. Good luck OP

I took Yaeger (not sure if they’re still around ) and Ninja as supplemental practice. Highly recommend Ninja since its cheaper and the test bank seems to cover more areas

Ninja is incredible. Use as a supplement to Becker and you’re gonna pass

If I had to pay for it myself, I would've chosen Roger and supplemented with Ninja MCQ

Becker paid for by my firm and paid for Wiley questions on my own. Totally worth it. Passed all 4 on the first try in one testing window!

I personally did not enjoy becker it was so much of information all at once it was overwhelming to me so I switched to roger and starting to pass 😊 I’m happy with my choice! I’d to the trial first and see what suits you the best!

Becker is good. Passed all 4 sections first try(I know I am old I took the last written exam) but Becker is always known as the best among the Big 4 staff.

i liked wiley the best! very straight to the point

Becker’s review questions and simulations did a great job of giving you a feel for the exam.

I have only done Becker but it’s amazing. It’s a little more expensive thou than the others. However have nothing but good things to say. I know ninja has question banks which is cheaper and pretty good too

I did Gleim and loved it. Never tried Becker so can’t compare but it is cheaper than Becker (I think) and I passed all four parts in first try with studying in very little time.
