Fun Facts

CPAs in Iowa


With a requirement of 40 CPE Hours, that means that Iowa CPAs spend around 140,315 hours on CPE to maintain their certification PER YEAR!


Boeing 737s take about 5,500 hours to build, so if CPAs built airplanes instead of doing CPE, Iowa would produce an additional 25 Boeing 737s a year!  That's over a month's production for ALL of Boeing's Plants Nationwide from Iowa ALONE!

  • I have taken multiple courses from The CPE Discount Store.  They have great customer support and I received my certificate of completion on the same day.

  • The CPE Discount Store offers a great selection of online CPE courses.   I was able to complete my course on my time frame which is a great way to take CPE.  Having the book as a reference for future work was also helpful.

  • The CPE Discount Store course materials are very straight forward and easy to understand, I particularly like the website and customer follow up to my questions.

Poorly written, many questions were nonsensical and the material was very old. This product was noted as a 2018 version but the quiz tested us on knowledge from the mid nineties. Very, very poor course and I would not recommend it to anyone.
This was a very interesting & informative book. The chapters were short and well laid out.
The test followed the book easily so it was a great test to cover the material. Highly recommend!
I have used the CPE subscription a few times now. I find it easy to check out books from the library or buy them & then take the test. It\'s very cost effective.

My request would be for more choices to be added. I have done many of them & cannot realistically repeat. Also, the books that have short chapters or bulleted points make it easier to follow along for test purposes
