Preparing to Re-take REG

I am going to start studying for REG on Tuesday night (3 days after taking AUD). I have my new Wiley book, my Yaeger Home Study DVDs (from last time), and my Wiley Software all ready to go.

Since I used the Yaeger Cram DVD for AUD, I want to purchase a Cram for REG. I used Yaeger’s Home Study but no Cram the last time I took REG. I was 9 points away from passing, so maybe something new can shake things up a bit and make a difference in my performance. I don’t want to spend the money for another course right now since I’m unemployed, so I am looking for a Cram.

I went online to check out Roger CPA Review’s Cram since I keep reading that CPA Candidates like his energy and enthusiasm. The price for the online version is more than the Yaeger unlimited-use DVD. I watched a 7 min demo for Roger’s regular Tax course and I was really impressed. The instructor possessed a great deal of energy and emphasized key points. I recommend checking out the 7 min demo to see his mnemonic for Adjustments To/From AGI (Roger Demos). *10/21/16 update: The demo is no longer up, but you can check out Roger's Cram course here.*

Like I said I was really impressed with the demo, so I am seriously thinking of trying out the Cram. Has anyone used the Roger Cram? Let me know what you think of it. Any info would be helpful! Thanks!


  1. yes, being unemployed sucks. i was laid off on the 9th. the free time is great but there isn't any (or much) money to DO anything. definitely limits what you can do. now begins study time for me too. at least starting may 1st that is. gonna relax a bit more first. :)

  2. That stinks! I totally hear you about the money. I have stopped buying new clothes until I get a job (except for a suit I had to buy). Definitely use this time off to pursue creative interests. Now that I don't have to rush home from work, I actually have time to cook, which I love (and also to write, which has always been a passion for me). Except for the studying, I think now I can look back at this as a fun time where I finally got up the nerve to do the things I have always wanted to do.

  3. So are you hopelessly in love with Roger yet? ;)

    Hope you're having fun with the Cram!

  4. I've been sick and interviewing most of this week, so I didn't get a chance to study yet. I changed my test date to July a few minutes ago (there's no way I can pass this thing in 2 weeks!). I am going to watch the first part tomorrow.
