Welcome to our Student Spotlight! We love learning about our students' accomplishments and experiences after taking our course! Whether they take their newly-earned CPA designation to continue on to their dream job, or still have more sections of the CPA Exam to conquer, we're sharing their incredible achievements. Our November Spotlight is on Sophia Lin:
Sophia has passed three parts and is currently preparing to tackle FAR. She is an active member on Roger CPA Review's Facebook page, and inspires fellow CPA Exam candidates with her motivational study tips and inspirational commitment to completing her goal.
Why did you take Roger CPA Review?
Roger's quick wit and enthusiasm! I found myself laughing through all of his videos on Youtube.
How did you hear about our review course?
From a classmate. I didn't put too much thought into it at the time as almost all of my accounting buddies were using Becker, so I used that instead. When I still hadn't passed a part, I looked into Roger CPA Review this year....and everyone, I have been missing out this whole time!
What was your favorite aspect of our course? (materials, Roger, etc)
The bite-sized lectures, Homework Help Center, and the online Facebook community. It's good to know we're all in this together.
How has passing the exams impacted your personal and professional life?
I can finally see the end of the road after 3 years! After finding out my REG score recently, I now have 3 sections under my belt.....so FAR better watch out! Passing the exam will open up many career opportunities for me, as a lot of positions I've looked into require or recommend having a CPA license. Personally, I look forward to getting in touch with my inner gamer (of the Angry Birds variety) and inner chef. Whenever I've taken a break from studying, I would always run to the TV to see what was cooking on the Food Network, and I can't wait to finally learn to prepare those yummy dishes!
Words of advice for those studying for the CPA exam?
It's a study marathon. Make time for the exam, no matter what you're doing, but make sure to plan in some break time every now and then.
