Your questions really make me have to think!"I wanted to let you know I have completed all my CPE hrs and I really like your courses. Much better than previous home study courses I have taken. Your questions really make me have to think! I like the fact that the study guide is there for me all year and especially at tax time. I found a lot of info relating to my clients that I did not know before (or didn't remember). I will recommend your courses to all my tax preparer friends.

Thank you for all your help and the time you took with me."
--Cheryl Hagen, EA (Sequim, WA)

 

 

Amusing while still testing the course material"Very convenient and (obviously--as it was free) affordable [referring to our free course: Charitable Contributions]. The exam questions were amusing while still testing the course material appropriately. Using the actual IRS publications as study material is also a good idea, in my opinion.

It might be nice to view the completion certificate online immediately--instead of waiting or relying on email. [Note: we did modify the course system to provide a direct link to the certificate immediately after passing the final exam].

Otherwise--it was pretty much perfect! Keep up the great work!"
--Nels Quinn (Huntington Beach, CA)

 

I keep coming back"I really do like these courses. I'm so glad I came across this website a few years ago. I've checked out some other places and keep coming back to this one. Thanks for a well-done job!"
--Gloria Boggs, EA (Keystone Heights, FL)

 

Love the convenience"I loved the convenience of FunCPE: printing out the study materials and tests, entering the test answers online at my convenience and receiving the e-mailed CPE certificates. I liked being able to work off line and then complete the tests online."
--Louanda Feather, EA (North Canton, OH)

 

Straight forward, right to the point and short enough "I took the course regarding tax prep franchises and I must say that it was one of the most succinct formats of information. Straight forward, right to the point and short enough not to take up too much time. You should write tutorials for other businesses. Thanks for the info, it was extremely helpful.

I have a financial planning practice and I am constantly looking to purchase another practice. Unfortunately they are hard to come by, so I thought about integrating a tax practice. With a lot of due diligence which included your course, I don't think I will be going the franchise route. Please keep me on your mailing list, your course was quite informative."
--Stuart E. Berrin, Financial Advisor (New York, NY)

 

Very well organized"Very well organized, the questions were illustrative of the text content and the rules and regulations for which they were pertinent.

I will absolutely be back on your site, I have purchased several more exams, and plan to use them very soon."
--Frank B. Howard, EA (Ukiah, CA).

 

Once again I have to thank you"I used your site to enable myself to reactivate my license last year. I've just completed my CPE for this year and once again I have to thank you. The price and convenience are fantastic.
I'm busy with a sole proprietorship and a family and you make it easy to afford and I can enroll and complete any time of day. See you next year!!!"
--Tracey Geary, CPA (West Long Branch, NJ)

 

Hope you continue to produce great courses"This course [Individual Income Tax-Part One] was very helpful in providing an overview of what's needed to fill out a tax form . . . I enjoyed this course very much and will use Fun CPE again.

Very nice of you to respond to not only this evaluation but a previous e-mail as well. I have an assoicate degree in Accounting and this coming year I hope to prepare a good many returns. I don't have an accredtion as a CPA or similar but am just an ordinary tax preparer that does returns in addition to my full-time job at the moment and I'm thankful you provide courses that are affordable and provide a great review. In the next few months I plan to take a couple of other courses and look forward to them very much.

God bless and hope you continue to produce great courses for a long time to come."
--Kevin, Tax Preparer (GA)

 

Thank you for offering such a straight-forward, fun course!"I really enjoyed taking this course [Course 6007: Buying a Tax Franchise]. To my pleasure, the lessons were not too long, so they could be read whenever I had a bit of time.

The messages that the writer tried to get across were quite clear, and I noticed that I didn't even have to look back at the material when answering the exam questions. It would be great if you could offer additional e-courses! I really don't have any significant suggestions for improvements.

Thank you for offering such a straight-forward, fun course! "
--Lora Dalle Fratte, CPA (Baden Wuerttemburg, Germany)

 

This CPE course was much better than the courses I normally take"I think this CPE course [Charitable Contributions] was much better then the Micromash courses I normally take. I would like to see more accounting courses added so that I can eliminate Micromash completely."
--Peter Zerr, CIA (New York, NY)

 

Your course has provided me with an excellent perspective "Thank you for the free tax franchise course. I think your course has provided me with an excellent perspective on the franchise opportunity. I am also a CPA and I have been looking to enter into franchise agreement with Liberty tax franchise.

Due to my limited business and tax experience I was initially under the impression that a tax franchise is the way to go, but based on your course, my own research and discussions with various individuals, it seems that I could probably do it better on my own.

Thank you again."
--Anonymous, CPA

 

Really gave lots of valuable insights and some food for thought too"I just finished taking the free course "buying a tax prep franchise" and must tell you it was excellent. Really gave lots of valuable insights and some food for thought too....things to think about before taking on such a huge investment.

I'm very impressed with how well you have put this course together. The idea of one "lesson" a day was especially good. It's much easier to retain what you've learned if you receive the instruction in small sections rather than try to cram a course into a few hours. The daily lesson plan is really a very good technique for learning.

Without any "review" of the lessons I was able to score 100 on the final exam."
--Anita Duffy, EA (Durham, CT)

 

Courses are well-organized, efficient to use, pertinent, and affordable"I've found the courses well-organized, efficient to use, pertinent, and affordable. I'm feeling very happy about satisfying my CPE requirement with useful material, obtainable without going to an all-day conference, and at a good price.

Thanks for making this kind of CPE available."
--Mary Hurst, CPA (Albuquerque, NM)

 

Once again I feel that I came away with new information "This was a very informative course [Buying a Tax Franchise]. I had played with the idea of a tax office but had assumed more year round work--at least through October. Once again I feel that I came away with new information after a course taken with FunCPE."
--Pam Hite, CPA, CMA (Sugar Land, TX)

 

I actually was impressed with all of the topics your web site provided "Thank you, Carolyn! I did get the original e-mail certificate, but not until yesterday but thank you for your follow through.

I actually was impressed with all of the topics your web site provided and at a reasonable cost. I took the free CPE course to get a feel for your company and to be confident it wouldn't be an internet scam. Thank you for your effort in making it a positive experience. I am sure I will be visiting your web site again in the future."
--Louanne Kiko, CPA (Paris, OH)

 

Still the best CPE site . . . and thanks for not charging a fortune Thank you again. . . still the best CPE site . . . and thanks for not charging a fortune. I need 92 CPEs by next year's end, so I will see you again. Great people, communication is intelligent and very respectful and polite. Really appreciate this. Intend to use your company often. Thanks.
--E. M., EA (Salisbury, MD)

 

 
I have found your web site to be extremely user friendly"This is the first on-line course I have taken. I wanted to give it a try before purchasing any of the other courses; your not charging for it [free course Charitable Contributions] allowed me to evaluate it with no risk. I appreciate that. I've already made my next purchase--needless to say, I'm a "happy camper."

Also, I have found your web site to be extremely user friendly. Thanks for making this a great learning experience for me."
--Gloria E. Boggs, EA (Keystone Heights, FL)

 

Thanks to your web site I have been able to get the CPEs I needed for under $100I've been interested in reactivating my license for a couple years, but in addition to limited time due to family obligations, I was completely deterred by the cost. My employer does not pay for CPE. Thanks to your web site I have been able to get the CPEs I needed for under $100. I'm looking to start my own business and wanted to be able to put the "CPA" back after my name, and now I can.
-- Tracey Geary, CPA (West Long Branch , NJ)

 

Convenient and quite enjoyable"Your course was convenient and quite enjoyable. I appreciate the fact that I can print out the test ahead of time to use as I study and then take the test when I am ready. You have some great courses and a very pleasant way to fulfill the cpe hours required.

I will use your organization again in the future."
--Vern Green, EA (Payson, AZ)

 

Great for those who work many hours "Keep it up, this is great for those who work many hours and can only do this late at night/ on weekends!!! I really do appreciate the site. I wanted to mention to you that I am also a CMA, as well as an EA. Your site is great to get the multiple CPEs done...Thanks...and I will see you soon..."
--Ciro Esposito, EA, CMA (Dunedin, FL)

 

The courses are challenging, even for a former IRS auditor"Keep them [the courses] just the way they are, it is challenging enough. I used to be an auditor for the IRS and I find myself having to go and refresh my memory on these tests."
--Shawn Rudkin, EA (Yucaipa, CA)

--Michael Sprock, CPA (Plano, TX)

 

The review questions and exam were 'right on' "The book [Never Eat Alone--from the course "Managing Alliances" Course 6008] was excellent. I would not have read it, had you not mentioned it. The review questions and exam were 'right on' and offered an excellent review of the book. I imagine it is not as "easy as it looks' to come up with meaningful and appropriate questions.'"
--Carl Kaplowitz, CPA (La Habra, CA)

This course would benefit any individual no matter what their level of expertise"This course was great [Individual Income Tax-Part One]. This is the first course I have ever taken that used a IRS publication. This course would benefit any individual no matter what their level of expertise. It re-assures what you know, and clears up some areas that may have been questionable."
--Timothy J. Bass, EA, ATA, ATP (Grove City, PA)

Definitely a breath of fresh air "Excellent course [The Millionaire Next Door]. The questions were direct and required a good understanding of the material. The course material was extremely practical and relevant to personal finances.

Your course is definitely a breath of fresh air in the often ""placid, predictable"" world of accounting. It is refreshing to review professional, financial topics without the suffocating complexities of IRS or GASB regulations. I will be sure to mention your materials to other CPA's that I know.

Your materials are interesting, relevant and very cost beneficial. Thank you!"
