Study At Your Own Pace With My 5-Step Process 

Step 1: Select Your Membership Package

Select the membership package that gives you the flexibility and payment frequency you need. Membership will give you access to the CPA study materials and a custom study plan. You will also get unlimited access to Vishal through phone, text, or WhatsApp and a monthly meeting to review your progress.

Step 2: Book Your Free Introductory Call

Once you have signed up, I will contact you to book your free introductory call. During the call, we will discuss how I can best support you during the CPA prep course. I will create a custom study plan that works for your schedule.

Step 3: Follow Your Custom Study Plan

Your custom study plan will tell you which CPA study materials to review during each study session. It has been created to work to your learning style and schedule. I want the study plan to work around your other commitments instead of forcing you to study at the expense of your job, schooling, or family.

Step 4: Book CPA Tutoring Sessions

Tutoring sessions are optional but strongly recommended. Group Zoom Tutoring is popular for students who want small group tutoring to build upon the CPA study materials for that week. We will work through examples, multiple choice questions, and answer questions.

Private Zoom Tutoring Sessions are also optional. It is great for additional support when you feel overwhelmed by a topic or to catch up if you miss your Group Zoom Tutoring Session.

Step 5: Assess Your Preparedness Before Your CPA Exam

I strongly recommend booking a Private Zoom Tutoring Session 2 weeks before each CPA exam. This gives us a chance to assess your understanding of CPA exam concepts and address problem areas. My goal is to have you walk into your CPA exam ready to conquer it. I will create a 2-week targeted study plan for targeted revision.

CPA Prep Course FAQs

Here I answer any questions you may have about the CPA review course and the CPA study materials. Don’t see an answer to your question? Contact me.

Is There a Particular Order I Should Take the CPA Exams?

You need to pass all four CPA exams within 18 months of sitting for your first exam. Generally, I recommend all of my students take the FAR exam first. This is because it is the most information-dense exam, so by doing FAR exam first, you are reviewing all the CPA study materials and preparing essentially “off the clock.” Your 18-month window will start when you sit the FAR exam, and the rest of the CPA review course is comparatively easy.

How Long Is Your CPA Review Course, And How Much Time Do I Need to Put Aside For Study?

It varies from student to student. Some students may be taking this CPA review course to study for all 4 exams; others may have already passed some of their exams.

On average, it takes students this long to complete the CPA study materials for each exam:

FAR exam:  12 Weeks
REG exam:  10 Weeks
BEC exam:   6 Weeks
AUD exam:  7 Weeks

If you are taking all 4 exams, it will take you 8-12 months. But if you are working full-time, studying, or raising a family, you may take a little longer to work through the CPA study materials. That is okay; I prefer you take the time to understand all of the material instead of burning yourself out trying to cram in all of the material.

Can I Pass the CPA Exam With Your Study Guides Only?

Yes, I‘ve used my 5 years’ experience as a CPA and 10 years’ experience in CPA exam tutoring to create comprehensive CPA study materials. If all you need is revision material, then these CPA study guides will be enough to help you succeed. However, if you need additional support and insight into accounting concepts, then supplementing the CPA study materials with Group Zoom Tutoring and Private Zoom Tutoring will help you to synthesize the material.

Do You Update Your CPA Study Material When Changes Are Made to the Exam?

Yes, I update all of my CPA study material and my CPA review course as a whole to reflect changes to the exam. This is my full-time job, so I make it my duty to keep on top of any changes to the CPA exam and update my students. I’ll notify you of when I have made updates to the CPA study material so you can review the new study guides.

Can I Print Out Your CPA Study Guides?

No, due to copyright issues, the CPA study materials are available as a read-only Google Doc. You can’t print them.

Can I Work With You In Conjunction With Another CPA Review Course?

You can if you want. However, I don’t recommend it as my CPA prep course is taught differently from other formal courses. I like to slowly build upon your knowledge week on week and show you how each concept is applied in real life. It is important to me that this CPA review course prepares you not only for the CPA exam but your career.

If you do want to supplement my CPA review course, I would suggest simulations and multiple-choice questions rather than textbooks and lectures.

Do I Get a Discount If My Friend Takes Your CPA Review Course?

Yes, I offer a referral bonus of $25 if you get a friend to sign up for at least 1 month. You can choose if you want the $25 as credit for the CPA review course or deposited into your bank account.

Do You Have Availability on Weekends?

Yes, many of my students work full-time jobs or have family commitments, so I have availability for CPA tutoring sessions on weeknights and weekends. I also encourage my students to email or WhatsApp me whenever is convenient for them, and I’ll respond within 24 hours.

I Have Dyslexia/Dyspraxia/a Learning Disability. Is This the Right CPA Prep Course For Me?

My CPA review course is designed to be highly personalized. I create CPA study materials that work for a range of different learning styles and use the Group Zoom Training to supplement the self-guided study. I am happy to adapt my teaching methods to suit any learning requirements and can even give you information about CPA exam accommodations if you need them.

What Is the Difference Between Group Zoom Tutoring and Private Zoom Tutoring?

Group Zoom Tutoring is designed to supplement your CPA study materials. In groups of 10 or smaller, I’ll take you through a high-level synopsis review of the topic for the week. We’ll go through examples, discuss common applications, and I’ll answer questions that came up during your preparation.

Private Zoom Tutoring is there for when you need extra support for one of the modules. You’ll have my undivided attention during the entire session, and you will be able to ask any questions you may have. My students tend to use these as regular check-ins throughout the CPA prep course to check that they understand the CPA study materials. It catches any misconceptions early to ensure you are revising the correct information. They can also operate as a catchup session if you can’t attend the Group Zoom Tutoring.

I recommend attending regular Group Zoom Tutoring and booking at least 1 Private Zoom Tutoring session 2 weeks before each CPA exam. During this Private tutoring session, we can spot any areas that need improvement before the test.

What Are the Group Sizes For Group Zoom Tutoring?

I like to keep the group sizes small because, as I’m sure we’ve all experienced, large Zoom calls pose many difficulties. Group sizes are 5-6 people on average. The small group sizes allow for the personalized tutoring that makes my CPA prep course unique. Group Zoom Tutoring sessions will always be 10 people or less so that we can discuss the CPA study materials at a pace that suits everyone.

How Long Are the Tutoring Sessions?

The duration of Group Zoom Tutoring sessions can vary to suit the module of the week. On average, they will be around 2.5 hours to give us ample time to cover the material and answer all of the questions you submitted in advance.

The duration of Private Zoom Tutoring sessions is flexible and depends on what you want to cover. If you are unsure how long to book, reach out to me, and we can discuss it.

Do I Need to Prepare For the Group Tutoring Sessions?

Yes, my CPA prep course is designed to support self-guided study, not replace it. You need to work through the CPA study materials and follow your custom study plan to prepare for the group calls. During the Group Zoom Tutoring, I’ll operate under the assumption that you’ve all read the CPA study materials instead of reading from them verbatim. I’ll only refer to them to link what you’ve been studying to what we are discussing, but you need to read them during your self-guided study sessions.

You’ll also be asked to submit any questions you have in advance via the Calendly app. This allows me to prepare examples that clarify the concept and to decide if I need to make changes to the CPA study materials.

For the Private Zoom Tutoring, you should’ve completed the weekly module and practice questions. We’ll discuss your questions and go over the questions you struggled with during the call.

How Does Payment Work For the Tutoring Sessions?

Both Group Zoom Tutoring and Private Zoom Tutoring can be booked via Calendly.

For Group Zoom Tutoring, I’ll ask everyone to submit their availability and then book the sessions via Calendly. When you confirm your place for the Group Zoom Tutoring session, you’ll be asked to complete payment for the session.

Private Zoom Tutoring is open to book when you need it. My Calendly schedule will show my availability for private sessions, and you can go ahead and book in a time that suits you. These sessions are paid via invoice after the session.

What Is the Refund Policy for Zoom Tutoring Sessions?

I understand that sometimes unforeseen circumstances can derail plans, so I offer a full refund if you are unable to attend a tutoring session. This applies to both Group Zoom Tutoring and Private Zoom Tutoring in my CPA prep course. The amount can either be refunded in full or used as a credit for future tutoring sessions.

Do I Need to Give You Notice If I Can’t Attend a Tutoring Session?

While I ask that you give me 24-48 hours’ notice if you need to cancel, there will be no penalty if you cannot give me notice. Contact me again when you can, and we will arrange another session when you are ready. Continue to work through the CPA prep course materials until then.

How Many Hours a Week Should I Study For the CPA Exam?

This CPA review course is a little different in that we focus on the quality of study rather than the quantity of study. Most of my students have other commitments like full-time jobs, families, or school. They don’t have time to memorize CPA study materials or consume entire textbooks. Instead, my CPA review course focuses on that aha moment when complex accounting concepts click into place.

Simply put, my students pass the CPA exam because they apply their accounting knowledge to the questions. I’ll teach you how to study in an efficient manner so that you can do quality preparation no matter how busy you get.

Do You Have a Pass Guarantee?

Unfortunately, I cannot offer a pass guarantee. I can give you all the CPA study materials and 1-on-1 support, but you need to put in the effort too. That being said, you are looking into CPA review courses and CPA tutoring because you are motivated, so I like your chances.

I recommend all of my students book a Private Zoom Tutoring session 2 weeks before their exam so we can test their knowledge and create a study timetable to address any knowledge gaps. The students that do so achieve great results, even when they have failed the CPA exam in the past.
