This course seemed more concerned with lawyers than with CPA (regardless of state) and questions were very poorly worded. Many were of the which was is false or exempt which made the test even more difficult. Find the course somewhere else.

  • 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.

Love the courses. Wish there was more selection!
This has to be one of the most poorly written courses I have ever taken. There were typos, conflicting answers in the review questions, poorly-worded statements and questions. I\'ve taken many better ethics courses over the years. This course was a disappointment!
