Universal CPA Review is the only company that uses visual learning and explanation videos for every practice question (MCQs and simulations) to help YOU understand difficult topics tested on the CPA exam. Long lectures, dense textbooks, and vague explanations make it difficult to get to that “aha moment”, so Universal CPA Review was founded.

Universal CPA Review was founded by Joseph Reeve and Matthew Reinhold. Joseph and Matthew are licensed CPAs, combine for 12+ years of public accounting experience, and created 100% of the material in the Universal CPA Review platform. They created tools to help the modern-day student pass the CPA exam!


So why is visual learning so powerful?

Visual learning allows you to process content 60,000x faster than text. Retention of visual content is 42% higher than text-based content. To top it off, visual content increases motivation, which everyone needs while studying for the CPA exam!

How is visual learning incorporated into the platform?

Visual learning is a critical component of the platform, which includes bite-sized lectures, study guides, and text/video explanations for multiple choice questions and simulations. The bite-sized lectures will provide an overview of the topic and teach you a systematic approach to attacking the topic. From there, you will learn to apply the systematic approach by completing multiple choice questions and simulations.

What type of support does Universal offer?

Universal CPA Review offers 24/7 customer support. In addition, Universal has a resource called “Ask Joey”, which is a database of 1,500+ Q&A’s asked by students on topics covered on the CPA exam.

If you have a specific question simply type it into the “Ask Joey a Question” box, which is located underneath every single lecture and practice question. The Universal team then receives these questions and responds via email with an explanation in less than 24 hours.
