This is a great simple guide. It is by no means complete, but it does stress the key concepts to passing the exam. I have passed three of the sections do far. The app is also better than the book because the app does get updated after you buy it.
Convent and easy to understand.
I already own the Focus Notes for BEC and for REG and can say they are very helpful. Probably the best thing that I like about these notes is that they are updated for free (Don't quote me on that from here on out, it's just why I seen moving from 2011 to 2012). Would definitely recommend then. Get them, worth every penny!
good for review. i think aud note is much more helpful. but this is ok too
Let's you study during all those in between times of the day
This is an ideal electronic flash card to reinforce key points from each topic. Please keep updating it regularly to maintain a five rating.
I like how it helps you study on the go. The price was too high and they are more like information flash cards - not the kind that asks you a question or gives you a term to think about then you flip to see the answer which I think are more effective for learning.
If you are serious about passing the CPA exam and need an extra arrow in your quiver, this app will assist in marinating your brain in the vast amount of information, especially when you have a moment on-the-go.
Good for meantime studying, however, it is expensive.
I found this app very helpfully when used in conjunction with the Wiley book and Yaeger lectures. It was especially useful while doing final review just before sitting for the exam. Well worth the 35 bucks!
Helpful, up to date, organized
I love this app and can't imagine studying for the CPA without it! Perfect for my commute to/from work, helps me squeeze in an extra 2 hours of studying each day. I've used this app as my main reading material for the exam, with the Wiley books for the MC questions (and if I need additional explanation of any concept in more detail.) I've passed all three tests thus far and using the same methodology for my last test.
Great app! Came in handy while riding the train to and from work. Will definitley help you get the passing grade.
Good app for the price. Great study aid for on the go.
Be careful of the other cheaper CPA exam review apps available, the information is not reliable. I was really glad when I saw a trusted brand like Wiley. I am using the cards daily and the information is accurate and nicely laid out. Highly recommended. I have been using this app and absolute love it!
Pretty good study tool for on the go. App is quite pricey about the same price of the paper flash cards.
But better cause it's on the iPhone. You can search cards and review by topic. Now to pass the exam. I wish they had a few blank cards to add your own notes.
I am loving these flashcards. Makes it so easy to study on the go.
Very good app fo anyone studying for the FAR CPA exam or an intermediate accounting class. I hope they release REG soon!
These notes are really lacking on more than one module. I can't believe I spent almost $40 on these note cards...better off making own note cards. Only reason I gave 2 stars is the convenience factor
Very poorly written study notes. No structure. A lot of Notes are written in such short form that you can't even understand the concept being explained. Not user friendly. Can I get a refund?
Something is not correct.. It will make you unclear. Never Never buy.
Buy a study guide, more information. Not worth the cost.
If this app were free I would feel differently, but it's a whopping $35 and a big disappointment for the price. I bought it hoping to get a different look at the material than the Becker materials, but I found this to be lacking. There are no questions, only flash cards with little explanation. I say stick to the free Becker app.
After buying and looking into the app for a couple hours I developed major buyers remorse. Very confusing cards describing how various entries are formatted. If you need help with definitions you may be able to fight your way through the chaos they call this organization. Not pleased for $30!
