If you don't read this whole post, remember this: Even if you don't use us, use the blueprints. They're important. They're a great tool. They will help you pass the CPA Exam and become a CPA.

Luckily, you'll have reference materials available for use after the Exam. That's is why I will tell you to study to the test - and be specific. As specific as possible! And no, we don't mean "buy our materials because they're the best" (this is not a sales pitch); it's a declaration. I'm taking a stand, and it's not about my review school or me. I'm sick and tired of candidates not going into the Exam adequately prepared.
