What are the best CPA review courses

It really depends on what format suits you the best. If you can sit down with a stack of books and discipline yourself to study and do the homework independently, go with just a book course like Wiley, etc. If you feel that you need the structure of a classroom setting or at least a DVD-ROM to guide you through, with set homework, then go with that type of format. I highly recommend Becker. I took Becker courses/watched the DVD-ROM's for the paper exam and passed all four parts the first time I took the exam. At least now, the courses can be split up over the different times of the year you take the exam, so it won't be as heavy as taking all four at once. Hopefully your firm/company will reimburse you for the cost. Additionally, if you take Becker (and I think other class-formats) with an affiliation to a school, they can count as undergrad credits - - and maybe you could get reimbursed through "continuing education", etc.  (Feb 8, 2008 | post #12)

La. Rapist's Death Sentence Upheld

it's horrible that there are sick f***s out there who rape, let alone violate children. i agree that such a crime is so heinous that the death penalty is just punishment. however, to really make things even, the rapist should be made to feel the exact same amount of pain, suffering, shame and fear that he inflicted on the poor girl before he dies.  (May 23, 2007 | post #2)

Why does everyone hate ugly women?

I think that beauty and ugliness are so perception-based. i also think that it's wrong to categorize ANYONE as "ugly". What is ugly???  (May 23, 2007 | post #2)

USDA: Company Recalls Beef In 15 States

they are freaking COWS. cows. how is raising beef cattle a waste of land? at least they're giving back to the land by fertilizing it with manure, which is more than i can say for other things that waste land, like, say, people.  (May 18, 2007 | post #11)

USDA: Company Recalls Beef In 15 States

Well, then, while we're at it, let's just blow up the Krispy Kreme. Damn, that's cold. Call me an ignorant fat-ass (I really don't mind), but humans have been eating cows for a long time, long before the "mass production" of beef. Cows eat grass, and in turn fertilize it. (I know this, because I was raised on a farm for beef cattle grazing. Yes, even Flips can live on farms). Then the cows are butchered and cut into pieces for distribution. There are a lot of other things that waste energy more than the production of beef. And if the processing of meat is the concern, then, like everything else that uses fuel and energy (such as automobiles, and other methods of human energy consumption) it should be moderated, but not obliterated.  (May 17, 2007 | post #2)

As Deportation Pace Rises, Illegal Immigrants Dig In

My family was originally immigrant, but went through the legal process of obtaining work visas, etc. My parents and grandparents naturalized a few years after they came here. It's a hard process, but it's unfair to have so many illegal immigrants entering this country immediately reaping the benefits while others who are going through the immigration process legally aren't. Get in line and do it right, is all I have to say.  (May 2, 2007 | post #9)
