I FINALLY Passed the CPA Exam!

December 19th, 2008

(UPDATE: Since many of you have asked, my old and new scores are as follows:

OLD: FAR-65, BEC-71, REG-71. (AUD-79.)
NEW: FAR-82, BEC-87, REG-84.

Effectively, the Yaeger course helped boost my score by as much as 17 points.) (Note: To see the Yaeger course click here.)

I FINALLY managed to pass the cpa exam (all three failed sections) on my second tries with the following scores: BEC-87 REG-84 FAR-82. So it’s official – I’ve Passed the CPA Exam!

I attribute my success to Dr. Yaeger and his team. The Yaeger cpa review course is the main reason I passed in such a short time. So all the positive things I read in the Yaeger CPA review reviews I came across in my research were for real after all. I like the Yaeger course because:

  • It makes studying efficient, by focusing on areas that has higher likelihood of appearing on the actual exam, and spending less time on areas that probably won’t come up in the exam.
  • The lectures aren’t boring, and make hard concepts simple to understand.
  • You can call the hotline to speak to the instructors to ask questions.
  • In spite of being one of the best, it’s one of the cheapest CPA courses available.

You can check it out by clicking here.

Dr. Yaeger explains concepts pretty thoroughly. There were concepts I never could grasp before that I finally “got” after watching his lectures. I would have been happy to pass with a 75, and when I got an 87 in BEC I knew I was onto something good.

I also called their study hotline a few times when I was still confused about something after watching a DVD. I got Dr. Yaeger again a couple times and other instructors for the other calls, and they were always patient and never tried to get rid of me prematurely, before making sure they’ve cleared up my confusion. One time I was on the phone with Dr. Yaeger for a good 45 minutes over a taxation question. I would highly recommend the Yaeger CPA Review Course to anyone trying to pass the cpa. (Tip: Even if you’re already using another review course, Yaeger has cram courses that you can use last-minute to boost your score by up to 15 points I think. Just so you know.) There you go – one of the most objective and unbiased Yaeger CPA review reviews you can find on the net, from a real student who’s actually studied from it.

I also attribute my success to my study buddies. Pete and Joann, if you’re reading this cpa exam blog, I couldn’t have done this without you guys! Pete – good luck with your BEC test next month. And Joann – yes you did pass the exams first but let’s never forget, I did get higher scores than you on REG and FAR LOL. Luv ya guys always!

And also, a big thank-you goes to my parents who have been more than supportive and encouraging throughout this whole ordeal. Thanks mom for your home-cooked meals which has saved me time I would have spent on cooking to gave me an extra hour to study every night.

Last but not least, a big THANKS to you all who have visited or are still visiting this cpa exam preparation blog. Passing the CPA may seem like a daunting task, but remember, if so many other people have done it (including me), than you will do it too.

It still hasn’t completely sunk in yet that I’m finally a CPA. David Bryant, CPA…ooh that sounded so good I think I’ll say it again. David Bryant, CPA. OK…I think I’ve had a bit too much to drink. Just came back from a celebration party for passing all my exams. I think I’m ready to get some well-earned rest now.

Tomorrow will be a brand new day filled with endless opportunities…. (I’m corny when I’m drunk, what can I say? LOL!)

    Congratulations! I have been planning to take the CPA exams since last year. Got the materials too. Just can’t discipline myself to sit down and study. Feel overwhelmed just by looking at the books. Looking out for a study buddy now. Blogs like yours help too. Thanks.

    Hi David,
    Congratulations! It does take a lot of dedication, hard work and persistence to achieve the CPA qualification doesn’t it.

    I agree with you that Yaeger CPA has the best value for money as well — for those who are still making your final decision in the CPA review courses, you may want to check out the CPA exam review courses comparison. Best of luck to you all!

    Cheers,

    I just found out last Monday that I finally passed all 4-after 3 years of trying, I was over the top! In Jan/Feb 09 I passed AUD and REG the passed BEC (after getting a 74) in Jan 10, and just found out about FAR-passed with a 75! This exam is a “stamina” exam, and takes lots of discipline-I work as an auditor, and put in about 50 hours a week, but woke up at 4 a.m. every morning while traveling internationally to study. I knew I wanted it, and it is definitely worth it.
