  • Overall I was very pleased with the course. Previously I knew just enough about pivot tables to be dangerous. Now I see the power that they have and I feel much more confident using pivot tables. The course materials were very clear and well prepared. I’ll be looking at your website for future CPE hours.

  • “Excellent Regulatory Review Course. The self-study format (E-Book) provided an excellent overview of the regulatory requirements for California CPAs. I will be using the E-Book as  a reference material. Thank you for providing a very comprehensive yet affordable option for this required CPE.”
