I enjoyed using your site again for my CPE. The online testing system is so slick and effortless."

"Heard about your web site from a fellow self-employed CPA. It was very easy to navigate through this site . . . thanks! I have already started telling my friends about your web site."
--Amy Wilkins, CPA (Houston, TX)

"The book [Never Eat Alone] 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)

I'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.
