My Roger account recently expired. I am not sure if I should renew with him or try out another program. Has anyone used Roger before, made the switch and ended up passing? I was wondering if there are any good programs out there that offer a “Failed with your Course” discount or anything? Or will I just have to suck it up and pay the full amount for a new course review.April 26, 2017 at 4:48 pm #1539553cpa1982Participant
What is your overall impression of Rogers? Did you like it? hate it? One thing I noticed about studying for CPA exam is that not one size fit all. Most members on here, including myself using more than one review materials to study for the exams. Currently, I'm using Rogers (supplementing with NINJA MCQ), getting ready for BEC and REG in next few months. It expires in September 2017. Once it expires I would like to try Gliem. Gleim considers boot camp of CPA review course. Some people find it's overwhelming and intense but they felt good after walking out of Prometric Center. Good thing is that you don't have to purchase the whole package at once. You can purchase section at the different price level. At platinum level, the section doesn't expire. Same goes for Wiley.April 26, 2017 at 4:57 pm #1539565MasterOfTaxationParticipant
It's important you understand why you failed before jumping into another review course. I have a trusted business associate who is the regional rep for Becker and she tells me all the time that over her decades of experience most people who fail don't prepare properly or set themselves up for failure by trying to do too much (i.e. working full-time and trying to rush through testing).
So, what is your story? Did you spend a significant amount of time studying? Did you follow a recommended schedule?
I picked Becker because I believe what I was taught in school about fair market value and what determines a fair price. In a nut shell, you get what you pay for. You can find 100 people who will tell you Becker sucks or that it's over-priced or they failed because of Becker, but generally, Becker gives you everything you need to prepare for and pass the test. You just need to properly prepare and sensibly plan out the time it will take to pass based on your capabilities. They have more resources and more experience than any other prep course. The price is worth it, in my opinion.
