What’s Included in Yaeger’s Review Course?
Fun Fact: Yaeger has a game center! This is a feature not found in other review courses and is a big draw for those that struggle with finding the drive to study.
What sets Yaeger apart from most other CPA prep courses available today is the way that they derive and organize their curriculum. Ordinarily, CPA courses will simply base their material off older test material that has been retired or by hiring professors with high exam scores. However, Yaeger cuts right to the chase.
How do they do this? By implementing information from AICPA Blueprints.
The American Institute of CPAs (AICPA for short) releases yearly blueprints that describe the subject matter and focus for each year’s CPA exam. This document, coming straight from the mouths of the people who write and grade these exams, is an invaluable resource for learning more about the covered material.
So why don’t more companies implement AICPA Blueprints into their curriculum? I’m not sure, to be honest; however, what I do know is that Yaeger goes the extra mile to constantly update their material to match these annual guidelines.
Multiple Choice Questions
To practice with the 4,300 multiple choice questions included in Yaeger CPA Review, you will use Yaeger’s Quiz Engine to create custom quizzes based on specific content groups or topics needed to complete your review.
I found the Quiz Engine fairly easy to use and the answer explanations to be thorough, but I do wish I could see my answer explanations immediately after I responded to a question. This may not be a problem for you, but I suggest marking any question you were unsure of so when you finish your quiz and review your wrong answers, as you will be able to target the topics you need to spend more time studying.
Yaeger also has a game center! This is a feature not found in other review courses and is a big draw for those that struggle with finding the drive to study. If you like to use competition as a motivator, you would like how Yaeger lets you compete with fellow CPA candidates by comparing multiple choice quiz scores.
Task Based Simulations
Yaeger does not provide as many task based simulations as other CPA review courses out there. You will have 164 TBSs with your Yaeger CPA Review course and you will want to practice with all of them since the new CPA Exam is focused on TBSs more now than ever. If you are worried about getting enough practice with these, I would suggest supplementing your Yaeger CPA Review or looking for other courses that have more task based simulations.
CPA Practice Exams
With Yaeger’s Exam Simulator, you can take practice CPA Exams that mirror the actual exam. These are great for you to test your timing and perfect your test taking strategies. Compared to other courses’ practice exams, Yaeger’s were slightly less realistic with regard to the actual CPA exam. For example, the Exam Simulator does not break up the test into individual testlets, so you have to use your imagination to master your timing.
CPA Exam Flashcards
Yaeger’s Flashcard Simulator is built directly into its course and has hundreds of flashcards for each individual section. These flashcards are very informative, but they are not organized by content group. If you wanted to study a particular topic, you would not be able to isolate those flashcards for a specific study.
I found the flashcards useless until I finished all my studies. I still enjoyed them as a final review tool, but if you study primarily with flashcards, you may not like how Yaeger CPA Review orders its flashcards.
