"Your program was extremely useful"

Jessica

"Hi, I wanted to just say your program was extremely useful and is likely the main reason I passed the CFE this year! I only took off about 2 weeks just before the exam, dealing with a cross country move in one week and hospitalized a few days before the exam, but because i kept on your timing tips and practised a ton of case writing with your framework, i definitely completed my exam and passed! I am totally recommending your program to anyone doing their CFE exam in the future."

"Thank you."

Muhammed

"Hey, just wanted to thank you. I bought your course only 3-4 weeks before the exam and only studied significantly last two weeks. And I was still able to pass because of the guidance in the course. Really appreciate it."

"You helped me pass the exam"

Brian

"Yes! I passed the exam and your program was very practical and you actually helped me pass the exam! Thanks Gevorg, it's all because of your support!"

"Brilliant!"

Qamar

"I came across Gevorg's webinar while I was searching Youtube for tips on passing the CFE exam, and I must say this is the best one to date. It gives you a comprehensive overview of the whole CFE structure; what a candidate needs to keep in mind while writing on each of the Days 1, 2 and 3, case writing skills and technical guidelines. A must watch for everyone planning to write the CFE...you will find yourself hooked up till the end as he explains every aspect of the CFE structure brilliantly."

"Passed the exam"

Justin, Student

"Wanted to say thanks, passed the exam. I will definitely reach out to you come next exam time."

"Inspiring"

Vincent

"Being an CPA student at a small not-for-profit entity, there isn't a lot of exposure to mentorships . I have always been studying on my own and do the case in my own style. Gevorg's CFE video inspired me a more effective way to prepare for my CPA journey."

"Best comprehensive CFE overview"

JD, student

"I looked at you CFE debrief and overview video on youtube, and just wanted to express my gratitude. It's one of the best comprehensive cfe overview videos I've come across With great details. Thank you!"

"Congrats on passing the CFE!"

TH, Student

"Thanks Gev! I will for sure forward your information to my friends."

"Thank you"

KM, Student

"I feel more confident after doing a case with you today and found my shortcomings...Thanks for showing me the right path."

"I recommend him"

MG, Student

"...he coached and mentored me on CPA modules with dedication and enthusiasm, for which I am thankful and recommend him with conviction."
