Anyway, CPAExcel also offers all 4 textbooks for only $150. They say the study text and proficiency questions match the computer material exactly. I was talking to my mom about CPAExcel and she called them up and they said the textbooks are just a supplement to the computer course, which I think is bullshit, because it says they match exactly.
Do you think it is possible to pass the exam with just the textbooks, which I could afford to buy right now, or should I eat ramen for months and find a way, any way, to buy the computer course for 745? I've also been unsuccessful in finding a job in public accounting. I made it to the last round of interviews for an entry level auditing job, but was rejected. I have a box full of rejection letters. I have 8 months experience working as a staff accountant for a not for profit company, but finding a local position, or semi-local, has been extremely difficult. That's part of the reason I need to take and pass the CPA exam.
