Amazingly helpful supplement!

SuperfastCPA has driven me to make sure I one day pass my CPA exams. Graduated with my MAcc in June 2021 then started working for Deloitte immediately afterwards. Now that I’m in a place where I can study effectively I am using Nate’s recommended study plan and it’s going smooth so far!
