Product Review and Evaluation Policy

Reviews are meant to help candidates. We realize a good part about giving good advice on the CPA exams is to make sure candidates have the right material. To that end, we are constantly on the lookout to test prep providers and post our reviews for our readers to reference before making a decision to purchase.

They also sometimes help us. We also sometimes use affiliate links on this site. If you use our links to buy these materials, we get a little cash to keep this site running. You get reviews, and sometimes discounts and giveaways if we can manage them.

Reviews will always be objective and adding value. However, no matter who or what we partner, our promise to you, reader, is this: We will always honestly review materials, and if we do not think a product is worth recommending, we will either post the honest review anyway, or decline to post the review.


We first and foremost, created for all you readers. Every decision we make prioritizes the readers’ interests and experience.

So to conform to the rules and maintain our sanity, for every product, link and recommendation that comes from us, always assume the following:
