Roger CPA Review textbooks cut out a lot of the fluff and focus directly on the content that will be on the CPA exam. I have just received a copy of their new textbooks and I am very impressed.
They are full of new mnemonics (see #3 below) and are laid out in a very intuitive way. Their course includes textbooks in both an online and physical format.

Roger CPA Review offers students a variety of useful new features. Each video lecture is accompanied by an area where you can type and format notes as you watch. These are saved and can be easily accessed and downloaded any time from the “My Notes Summary” section in either PDF or HTML format.
Because Roger tends to speak a bit fast, they’ve added a new feature which allows you to adjust the playback speed of each video, add closed captions or subtitles for English, and highlight directly on the eTextbook.
This is extremely helpful for international students, people with hearing disabilities, and busy CPA candidates who are short on time and want to speed up Roger even faster so they can power through a quick section.
They’ve also added a new Video Bookmark feature that allows you to tag a specific time in the lecture so you can go back and review it later. You can add multiple bookmarks during each lecture with the simple click of a mouse.
6. Audio Review Course
The Roger CPA Audio course is the most effective audio course on the market because the lectures are taught with the same high energy and enthusiasm that Roger is so well known for. He even throws in the occasional joke just to make sure you aren’t nodding off while you are listening.
If I had to pick one audio course to study with, this would definitely be it. It’s available in an MP3 format and focuses only on the most heavily-tested CPA exam topics. This is a great way to turn those long commutes to work into valuable study time.
7. Financing Options
Roger CPA Review now offers financing plans for students on a budget.
I remember right after my college graduation I felt very stressed about having to come up with $1,500 to purchase a CPA review course. Roger has removed that unnecessary stress from CPA candidates by offering financing as low as $149 a month.
Just provide your basic information during checkout and get instantly approved. Choose to pay over 3, 6, or 12 months with interest rates from 10-30% APR depending on your credit rating.
You can pay your monthly bill using a bank transfer, check, or debit card. To learn more about these financing options, click here.
1. No Unlimited Access
The Roger CPA Select Package gives you 18 months access to all course materials and their Premier and Elite Packages come with 24 months access. For the price of Roger’s courses I was hoping they would offer Unlimited Access until you pass.
That being said, I think that 24 months is more than enough time to complete all four sections of the CPA Exam in the allotted 18 month window, even for someone who has been out of school for a while.
Candidates who want Roger’s Select Package can also purchase a 6-month extension for $200 giving them a total of 24 months of access.
I really like the unique teaching style of Roger CPA Review and appreciate the fact that he can take any accounting topic and make it interesting.
The way he uses mnemonics to help students remember detailed information is extremely effective, and you won’t get this with any other CPA review course.
Roger understands that passing the CPA exam should be done as efficiently as possible by focusing on the major accounting concepts and not getting stuck on the small details that are unlikely to be tested.
After watching many of his video lectures and working through various sections in their new software, I’d highly recommend Roger CPA review to anyone who values their time and wants to pass the CPA exam as quickly as possible.
