My Review of CPAexcel’s Mobile App


If you’ve read some of my other article’s you know that I was able to pass the CPA exams fairly quickly once I figured out how to study correctly.

One of the things that really bridged the gap for me was CPAexcel’s mobile app.

I would study hard in the morning’s for 1-2 hours before I went to work, but then I used the app every time I had a few spare minutes.

Here are some of the benefits of¬†CPAexcel’s Mobile App:

The Quick Quiz Function

If you’re smart, you’ll use the Quick Quiz every chance you get. It’s how you pass ūüėČ

The Quick Quiz feature is by far my favorite part of the app. In the app’s settings, you tell it which CPA exam section you’re currently studying for, and then you set how many questions you want your quick quizzes to be. You can choose any amount of questions at a time from 1 to 100. I personally liked to have mine set at 5.

Then every time you start a quick quiz, you get 5 random questions from the section you specified. This works perfectly with my theory that the #1 thing you can do to study for the CPA exams is to pound through as many multiple choice questions as possible.

I would also do quick quizzes to put myself to sleep at night… that way you can have dreams about CPA questions.

Thousands of Questions and Flashcards in Your Pocket

You can tag questions, so what I would do is tag questions that were really hard, or that were great questions in the sense that they covered multiple aspects of a given topic. The flashcards in CPAexcel are really well-done, and they are created in a way that teaches you each topic step by step.

Simple and Effective Design

The CPAexcel app is very simple and effective to use. When you’re going through multiple choice questions, you simply tap on your chosen answer, and if you get it right, a green box pops up with the explanation to why it’s the correct ¬†answer. If you get it wrong, you’ll get an explanation why it’s incorrect, as well as the correct explanation.

This is extremely helpful to have the both the reason why it’s wrong, and the correct explanation condensed into one spot. I learned a ton from using the mobile app and going through question after question.

    Something happened to My app. It says I have no access to almost all the topics all-night a sudden. The topics are greyed out and I cannot click on them. Can someone please help?
