How do you compare to other review courses?
Compared to other programs in the market, Yaeger CPA Review is a teaching course. We teach concepts so that our students understand what they are doing and how to respond to a question. We reinforce our lectures by working hundreds of multiple choice and simulation questions along with you. We even work journal entries so that you get a good feel for what you will need to do on the exam.

Other courses in the market are memorization courses. They use many mnemonics and memorization tricks. You end up underlining and highlighting your entire book. We believe, if you have a true understanding of the concepts, you will be better able to answer the questions you will see on your exam. We emphasize understanding over memorization and repetitive MCQ.

In short, better teaching, better technology and a level of unmatched personal service sets us apart from any of the competitors in the market.

What comes with the CRAM course?
Our CRAM course can add 5 to 15 points to your score - a difference between a 74 and a passing score! It contains a video course and PDF text book and is designed as a final wrap-up to assist candidates a week or so prior to taking the exam. Read more about our CRAM course here.

Our Listen-n-Learn audio files mean you can download any section of a lecture either individually, or all at once. Listen to your CPA review while commuting, at the gym or even at the grocery store! You can also study our flashcards from your smartphone or tablet.
What is Yaeger CPA review pass rate?
Unfortunately, we are not able to provide a specific percentage. We've found that courses that do provide percentages are likely to be inaccurate and infrequently updated because the AICPA does not track or post review provider pass rates.

All review providers must calculate their own pass rates using student questionnaires and feedback. In our experience, candidates are very reluctant to share their scores. Often, candidates will share successes and not failures so rates are likely to be skewed.

We advise against using passing rates as a way of judging a review course. Instead, we recommend looking at our student reviews.
Do I have to be online to access the course?
Yes. An internet connection is required for video streaming and using AdaptaPASS. If you're in an area with slow connection speeds, please contact us for options. We suggest downloading the audio lectures for plane rides and commutes when you're not able to connect to the internet.
Who are your instructors?
What kind of instructor support is provided to students?
Our bundle includes 1-on-1 instructor help and coaching - a difference that sets us apart from other CPA Exam Prep programs. You can even call Dr. Phil Yaeger directly! There is unlimited instructor help via phone, email and our message board.
Do you have a student ambassador program?
We are actively seeking Campus Representatives to build awareness and facilitate communication between Yaeger CPA Review, students, professors and staff. This position is typically for junior and senior accounting majors who are passionate, innovative, enthusiastic, creative and committed to market our program. To read more, or apply, click here.

Do you have any in-person tutorials/classes?
No, we only offer online self-study programs at this time.
How many task-based simulations are in the test bank?
Our content development team is always working on developing new task-based simulations. We currently have over 150 task-based simulations loaded into our exam simulator. And unlike other courses, you're not limited to the number of times you can practice each simulation.
Does your test bank include Documentation Review Simulations?
Yes, our content is 100% up to date with the current requirements of the CPA Exam. We are the first and only course to "teach to the test" using 100% AICPA blueprint integration.
