CPA Audio Courses Compared

UWorld Roger CPA Audio Course

The CPA audio review content from UWorld Roger CPA is by far the best and most comprehensive audio study guide on the market. Better yet, it’s included with every UWorld Roger course package, so you get it no matter how little you want to pay.

The main reason why it’s so good is that Roger’s lecture style lends itself so well to the audio format. Roger is energetic and entertaining, which means you’ll be motivated to continue your studies day after day.

The UWorld Roger audio lectures are very descriptive and include lots of fine details. Thanks to this, you can understand the topics and concepts without having to reference your study plan for each lecture.

Yaeger CPA Audio Course

yaeger-cpa-reviewle Yaeger audio CPA study materials consist of audio lectures that have been adapted from their full CPA review course. In other words, they are audio recordings of the video lectures included the full set of study materials.

These video lectures also lend themselves to the audio format because the Yaeger instructors tend to be extremely detailed in their lesson approach– even more so than Roger. Latou te tuuina atu tone o faamatalaga ma faamalamalamaga e uiga i autu taitasi.

Probably the most useful part of these self-study audio lessons is the past CPA review question explanations and examples. alu Yaeger e ala i ni nai fesili suʻega ua mavae i lesona taitasi ma faamalamalama mai lona faagasologa mafaufauga i tua o le taliina o fesili saʻo. o se fesoasoani tele lea i le faia mo le suega.

Gleim CPA Audio Course

Gleim CPA Review includes some audio components in their test prep course, but they don’t equate to a complete audio course. It also can’t be purchased outside of their main cram course.


Personally, I don’t think that review audio lectures are enough to properly prepare for the CPA exam. You should get a full-time CPA ala iloiloga that fits your learning style and lets you learn at your own pace. Mulimuli ane, even the best ever audio course is more of a supplement to a real set of study materials.

Ina ua fai, I think the Roger audio course is probably the best one out there. If you are looking for an audio supplement, I’d get this one.
