Lack Luster

Any additional comments?

The story seems to be more about overcoming his own doubts than actually giving you useful information on how to prepare for the exam.

Not much substance

I was expecting some real tips, but all that was provided were very general tips that can apply to any exam, not just the CPA.

Motivating read but misleading title

I enjoyed this quick read. It contains positive messages about having a solid game plan when it comes to attacking any test. I think a more suitable title should be “How I Passed the CPA Exam on the First Try”. The book focuses on test taking strategy. I think it’s a great book to read before starting your actual test prep.

Great for early stages

Great for people who are considering sitting for the exam or are in the very early stages of preparation.
