If you have a short attention span like I do the Roger is the best CPA prep course option on the market. As many other reviewers have pointed out, he is VERY energetic and passionate about what he does and his video lectures show that in full force. Other video lectures put me to sleep but he has a way of keeping me attentive throughout his lessons that I really appreciate. Roger is a great course and would be a great choice for anyone who learns best from having things explained to them from an instructor. Check out my detailed review of Roger CPA here:

Roger may not be for everyone, but he WAS for me. Before you plunk down a few grand on any of the comprehensive course take a look at what Roger has to offer. I used Becker without a whole lot of success. I'm in Chicago and had never heard of Roger CPA Review before. But after passing BEC, then Reg on my first tries, AUD got me a 74, far was even tougher for me. But while watching horrible Becker lectures over and over and NOT understanding concepts I went to the web and found some YouTube vids which helped a LOT. Then I found Roger's stuff, he was great...and while studying alone all day every weekend at an empty community college in summer he made me feel like there was someone there with me helping me to stay motivated and pass. Roger Philipp, thank you for your help. And good luck to everyone else out there trying to pass this series of exams, it's difficult, but you CAN do it!

Roger CPA review is a good course for people who enjoy Roger's teaching style. He's pretty energetic and flamboyant at times. If you like this, it's a good course. The biggest drawback that I see with it is that there is a time limit. After the time expires, you'll have to pay an extra fee to renew it. I don't think that's very fair after you spent $2k-$3k on a course. You should be able to use it until you pass the exam. That's just my opinion. I wrote an entire review of the course on my website. Feel free to check it out. I hope it helps you make a your decision.

Also, feel free to email me with questions. I'd be happy to share my experiences.

I was getting tons of email every week from Rogers CPA with discount and coupons, then I bought the full course thinking that I will be able to study but I got so busy at work and I didn't even open the box that they shipped it to me, I try to return the brand new material back to them but they refused because it's over 10 day from the receiving the materiel. So once the customer buy their product, never expect to get the money back in full, even if you return within 10 days, you will pay $200 cancellation fees. 10 days are NOT enough time to evaluate the product and people has circumstances too. If you read their terms and conditions you will know they want to RIP PEOPLE OFF

"$200.00 cancellation fee on a full course purchase, all materials must be returned within 10 days of receipt and be unused and in resalable condition. No more than 10% of any course lectures may have been viewed to qualify for a refund."

Rodger cpa is the only way to go. I know this because ive tried it all... Gleim... Becker...

Becker has a deal with the big four and offers them a massive discount and for this reason, everyone seems to use becker. Have many passed with becker? Yes... However, im not sure how. I failed over and over with becker because becker sucks. They dont explain concepts and they try to get you to memorize concepts by giving you tricks and keys.

Rodger just explains the reason why accounting concepts are the way that they are. I went into far without having memorized information, i understood why. I ended up passing all four sections. I threw my becker in the trash and now im a cpa. I recommend you do the same to save yourself a system overload and tears from failing grades.

Also becker, dont put a ancillary section in your books? Am i supposed to study this or not study this? Ohhh study if i have time... Yah.. That makes sense... Because i have extra time while studying for the cpa. Im telling you people, conceptually becker is all wrong.

Becker, get with it.

Rodger, thank you for showing me the way.

Roger made a painfully boring subject entertaining which is no easy task. His review course more than adequately prepared me for the first three exams and I am confident I will pass my last exam with his product. I passed all three exam on the first try in a short amount of time:

AUD 91 July 25h, 2013

FAR 88 Dec 5th, 2013 (I took 2 months off from studying after AUD)

REG 92 Jan 17th, 2014

BEC schedule Feb 28th, 2014.

Nothing can substitute for the time you need to put in studying, but Roger made the lectures fun and educational.. I spent over 100 hours studying for each exam.

I HIGHLY recommend Roger!!!

In choosing a CPA review course, I wanted something that would prep me and motivate me to study. The other courses I looked at were really boring or straight reading from a text book... not qualities I admire in a teacher for the hardest exam of my life so far. Roger's energy and ability to intelligently entertain an accounting student are hands down a bonus of the course. The feature that truly "sold me" was that his course was technologically friendly so that I could truly study anywhere (mobile, tablet, desktop, laptop, book) and that has made a difference by far. Check out his course at and see for yourself! I'm very happy with the course material and study strategy and customer support from his office.

I used RogerCPA review for my study program. I passed all four sections on the first sit:

BEC: 92

AUD: 90

FAR: 91

REG: 85

This course was instrumental in helping succeed on the CPA exam. The lectures are good - particularly if you really don't remember a certain topic from college/graduate courses. Roger is engaging and keeps you interested in the material for the lectures. Roger's books of notes for each section are worth their weight in gold - these are well laid out and easy to read for quick reference when studying. Roger's program calls for repetition on the MCQs...practice them 2, 3, and 4 times over and learn where your weaknesses are. His program will help you hone in on weak areas and familiarize yourself with the material.

Seriously, this is a great product. I would recommend it to anyone; if you have had some trouble with studying on your own or have had problems with another review course, then give RogerCPA a try.

Just passed REG (2nd attempt).

I did ALMOST everything Roger says.

For the first attempt (failed) I viewed his videos, studied, studied, MCQs many times, studied, studied, MCQS.

For the second attempt, I studied, MCQs, TBS, MCQs, TBS, and practical tests in study-mode on the Wiley-CD. However, when I did the MCQs on the textbooks I did something different than what Rog suggests. He wants to check the answer on every MCQ, but doing that I found myself "snooping" for the next answer... No, no, no.

My approach is to set my brain in a test mode: for REG, 72 MCQs and 6 TBS, and at THE END check the answers. It's harder, but I passed it.

As he says: "It's not an IQ test, but a test of DISCIPLINE!"

PS: His RIKS - Roger tricks and mnemonics (I made it up) are FABULOUS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

During the test, if you have not a clue on how to answer, just review in your mind his

RIKS, the answer will come up.
