Hi!

My name is Dave. I finished my Bachelor's degree in Accounting two weeks ago, and I plan to start my MS in Accounting in August. In the mean time, I hope to take and complete the CPA exam. This is my story. :)

I have been reading up on CPA exam review courses to see what would suit me best. I will have about 7 months total, so I want to do this right the first time! After getting sticker shock from what my friend paid for Becker, I couldn't help but feel that there has to be a more reasonable alternative that will still get me through the exam. All roads point to Yaeger. I watched Yaeger's sample videos, and overall I am pleased.

Considering that I am a recent grad, I believe that I will have the benefit of being fairly fresh on the material, resulting in a shortened period of time needed for review. I have a full time internship currently, but I know that I can dedicate at least 15 hours per week to studying. (Having taken the GMAT exam this summer with the same internship schedule, I know this figure to be reasonable.)

This is my starting point. Please leave me comments, feedback, and suggestions, and I will post regular updates with my current progress.

Thank you! :D
Dave
