"Professor Kanan,

I passed regulation!!!!!!!

I owe it to you because of your CPA review course and help!! I never thought I'd pass on my first try!"       

- Matthew Colangelo, Office of the State Comptroller


"The Wiley CPA review program, offered through New Paltz, afforded me an opportunity to benefit from a traditional in-person class with my peers. This helped incentive a strong work ethic and the use of New Paltz professors made the experience very comfortable. I found the course to be extremely effective and was able to pass all four parts of the exam on the first time around. I would highly recommend this program to anyone who is serious about passing the CPA exam."        - Benjamin Schwartz, '16


“I began the Wiley CPA Excel program in July 2015 and was able to successfully pass all four sections of the exam by June 2016.  I have a young family and work full-time at a local CPA firm and was looking for a program that would be effective and fit into my busy schedule.  The Wiley program was a great fit as it was very flexible, yet helped keep my studying organized and on target.  I attended the live instruction as well as utilized the computer-based program.  Using both components of the study material in tandem was a recipe for success.  I was able to study on my own time and complete the various study areas at the pace that my schedule allowed.  I was then able to discuss any areas of concern or go over any questions with the New Paltz professors at the live classes.  The time and commitment needed to pass the exam is significant, but Wiley gives you the tools that are needed in order to be successful.  I would highly recommend the program to anyone who is looking for a CPA review course and I am excited to begin the next phase of my career as a CPA.”                         -  Jennifer Rosenhagen Traverse, CPA
