Highly recommended!

This helped me a lot to drive home some hard to understand chapters. I listened to it without any distractions and its easy to navigate/skip through chapters. I read each chapter before listening to the wiley audio and would recommend that you do likewise. all the best!

Fast, but snooze fest

The narrator sounds pleasant, but is very unengaging. She talks too fast to give you time to absorb the consequences and provides too few examples of use on the exams or in real life.

Audio CDs

Where does Wiley CPA Exam Review Impact Audios rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This is the first audio book that I have listened to. I like that I can learn the information on the road.

What does the narrator bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I think hearing someone talk to me over and over is a bit more sticking than reading it over and over, but I still read the material just to get a grasp of the information. Regarding studies, repetition is key.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I can't say that there was. It's all informational and I appreciate the additional study methods.

Any additional comments?

The only thing that I don't like is that when I burn to CD's all the tracks are in increments of 8 minutes each and the transition from one "track" to another isn't to my liking. There is no pause. Other than this, I love listening to the CDs on my way to work every morning. It sticks.

Good supplemental

The speaker goes so fast that you barely have time to comprehend what she is saying. There is a lot of material to cover, but unless you like to listen for a bit and then pause to digest it you won't get much out of this audiobook.

Bookmarks or better chapters should be added. It is nearly impossible to find a topic that you need to review really fast because the audiobook is broken into the 5 CDs from the original release. There are no useful chapters or bookmarks included.

I recommend this book as a supplemental study method to use when you can't get to your computer or book. It does help reinforce your previous studies.
