I would like to thank you for creating such a wonderful program to help candidates prepare for the CFE. With the help of the PASS program, I was able to successfully pass the CFE.
Results are out and I've passed. Huge thanks for all your support, dedication and passion for what you do! I always refer you guys to my friends and colleagues that are CPA candidates!
Your course was an irreplaceable part of my studying and I continue to recommend it to everyone in the CPA program.
Thanks so much again for all the help and resources during the process. It was a huge help. Couldn't have done it without PASS.
Thank you for your support leading up to the CFE. The PASS program was a sure aid in my success on the CFE. I found it very helpful that the comprehensive course provided the methods to tackle the cases in a systematic way. I also appreciated being able to ask questions in the online classes and have you answer questions I had.
I want to thank you both for the wonderful lessons you have both taught me in preparation for the CFE. They helped a lot and played a huge factor in me passing the exam.
I definitely could not have
done it without your help.
Repeat Writer - Just a short note to thank you for your help this year. As you are aware, I did the CFE Day 2/3 this year again (as a repeat writer). The technical review and practice I did through PASS gave me the boost I needed. I passed the CFE!!! I am over the moon right now and your program helped me to get here!! Thank you, thank you, thank you!
I successfully passed the CFE
on my first attempt. We received an abundance of resources
from the PASS program designed and carried out by you and Michael. which
I really think made all the difference since not every CPA candidate has
the same luxury or resources provided by their firms. I think these tools
were critical to my success.
thank you so much for support in providing me excellent materials to help me PASS the CFE this year!
Thank you for your well organized and practical set of courses which helped me pass all the CPA exams on the first shot!
I want to thank you for all the support and resources from Core 1 up to the CFE. This would not have been possible without the help fo your amazing program designed to succeed.
I'm happy to report that I passed the CFE! The CFE comprehensive course was instrumental to my success. Specifically, the Audit lecture helped me learn how to approach each possible scenario in the CFE and the Financial Accounting lecture helped me reach depth by reminding me to tie case facts to each technical point I raised. Thank you so much for your flexibility and the program you've put together.
I am writing to you to say nothing but thank you, for all your help and support provided during your 5 day training session and your study materials. I successfully passed the CFE this year! Your teaching and guidance were many times far superior than what the Diploma Program (in Toronto) provided.
I was very happy with the courses you offered for both the challenge exams and the final (CFE)!
The courses you provided to me were definitely really helpful and instructive for me, so I just wanted to share my happiness with you and thanks for your great help on the writing skills and accounting techniques on the CFE.
I joined the CPA program as a legacy CGA student at the Electives stage with little idea of transitioning onto CA-type skills in case writing. Ira was very helpful in guiding me through the technical material which gave me a solid ground on with to start my preparation. I kept in touch with Ira through the CFE and he again helped my by providing some demystifying material on teh brand new standards, Financial Instruments and Revenue. although the success of CFE depends largely on persisten rigou of timed case writing, the courses at PASS provided a valuable impetus towards that goal.
I just wanted to thank you for the excellent CFE case writing course you provided and the technical notes summarizing ASPE and IFRS differences. Both went a long way in preparing me for the exam and helping me pass. Keep up the good work.
I just wanted to say another thank you for the CFE prep program, I passed the CFE.
Key to success is knowing the right techniques to win the game and PASS knows what they are!
I also wanted to thank you for the insight you've shared in the various PASS videos that I have seen - I learned a lot from the Integrated Audit session and look forward to the sessions next week as well.
Just to share with you that was able to pass the day 2 and 3 of the the CFE. I took the complete CFE course of PASS. Thank you so much for the guidance to help me pass the exam.
I would like the opportunity to thank you again for your courses and help. I believe it had a big impact on my successful results of the CFE!
Wanted to share with you that I passed the CFE last fall (first attempt). I would like to thank yourself and Michael for the great support you have provided throughout this journey. It was a pleasure being part of the PASS program.
I would like to thank PASS for all their efforts and hard work that goes into making sure that your students pass CPA exams. It would not have been possible without all the technical as well as personal advice from PASS. Special thanks for helping us new immigrants with your free information sessions and special programs for internationally qualified CAs that helped a lot. You go well above and beyond the call of duty to accommodate your students.
PASS course has best technical material especially videos and live sessions. Ira and Michael have provided tremendous guidance on case writing approach which is most important while writing CFE. Passion for teaching student truly reflect in their work. I want to thank PASS team and recommend every student to take up PASS course to pass CPA.
I wanted to inform you that I have successfully cleared CFE. This is all because of your guidance, coaching and support.
I'm glad that I made the right choice by choosing the PASS CFE course.
I would like to thank both Ira and Michael for their untiring guidance and their extremely useful tips that ultimately helped me to pass the CFE.
It is with great pleasure I wish to inform that I passed my CFE 2019. I am thankful to both of you because it was due to your notes/webinars I was also to understand the whole process of CFE specifically the case writing aspect because as being international accountant we never experienced it.
Excellent is the word for the PASS team and especially Michael and Ira.
I just want to thank you for your guidance throughout international CFE preparation program, incredible material and marking techniques that helped me to pass CPA in first attempt. I am very happy for the course you offered.
After my previous unsuccessful attempt for CFE, I was successful. Thank you for your help, as I can now proudly say, India CA and Canadian CPA! Studying after 14-15 years into my first designation was not easy but with support from family , guidance from teachers and mentors was a differentiating factor.
Thank you so much for being such wonderful teachers!
I once again want to thank both you and Michael for all the help in preparing for the exam.
I just wanted to place on record my appreciation for the support that you guys have granted me during the whole preparation process. I couldn't have done this without you.
Thank you for the guidance and support. The case writing techniques taught by PASS were of great help to me and also Day 1 case writing lecture was very useful.
I would like to express immense gratitude for your (Ira and Michael) expert support and the immense flexibility you lent me in paying my dues. I passed the CFE thanks to the friendly experts of PASS!
Thank you for your guidance and support - I sailed through the Sept. CFE!
I wanted to thank you and Michael for all the guidance and support you have provided during the course I took with PASS.
I am excited to be a designated accountant in two countries, Canada and India. Looking back at the last 8 months, I owe my success ultimately to my every supportive family, to my tutors Ira Walfish and Michael Levi of PASS for being super teachers, to my mentors and to the Institute of Chartered Accountants of India - Toronto.
Just wanted to thank you for everything, your material really helped me. Thank you so much for your guidance.
Reliable and focused study materials along with flexibility of PASS's management with my busy schedule helped me get my CPA. The marker's feedback was also aimed at identifying any weak areas and on improving my case writing skills.
Ira and Michael from PASS played a significant role in the beginning of CPA journey, both reintroduced the concepts and explained the case writing techniques to pass CFE. Study material provided has sufficient theory to understand concepts easily and clear any confusions. The experience of number of years is reflected in the classes, lectures and webinars. Thanks to both of you.
I credit most of my success to outstanding study materials and quality live instructions by Michael and Ira. Thank you PASS for helping turn my ambitious goal into a startling reality.
Thank you Ira and Michael (PASS) for your guidance, that helped me pass the CFE in my first attempt. The targeted approach to the exam, made it a lot easier for me to get through the CFE. The study material and in class lectures were of immense help to get command over Case Writing for this level.
PASS helped me to develop the right approach to tackle a case. Overall, no important topic was left untouched, with the dedicated technical briefing classes. Thanks for your contribution to my success.
am delighted to announce that I cleared the CFE and became a CPA in the first
attempt which is a proud moment for anyone. Being a CA from outside Canada (India), it
was difficult for me to get used to the way one prepares for CPA. I came
across PASS where they have a customized study program for candidates like me and
a flexible study program for candidates who are working.
Thank you Ira and Michael for all your guidance and help. It truly means a lot.
Overall the PASS learning system was fantastic. It prepared me well for the 4 PEP Module Exams while giving me the flexibility to learn and review at my own pace and to focus on what I needed to most.
I just wanted to say WOW! The material is amazing on how it presents just the important technical and explains it in an easy to understand and follow format. I am rewriting my flash cards right now based on the PASS material. I wish I had just studied using PASS since day one and I could've been multiple times more effective with my use of time.
I just found out I passed Core 1 - thank you for your awesome videos. It was my 3rd attempt at Core 1. I had a hard time understanding and retaining the notes from Knotia on my own. Your videos helped me so much with understanding the logic behind the rules, especially financial reporting. I found your mock exams harder than the actual exam which I think helped me prepare even further. I'm so glad I bought PASS!
I personally feel that the way that the class was structured really helped me. Videos were really entertaining, and Multiple choices really useful.
I have passed Core 2 and I'm so happy I did use PASS. The videos in Core 2 were the best as I'm a visual person.
The videos and the practice questions really helped me cope with the module better and I definitely know who I will turn in future for help with these CPA PEP courses
The pass program has been amazing in helping me prep for challenging my Core 2 exam. PASS has been great!
I wanted to thank you for the management accounting notes as they really helped me during the CFE technical brush up.
Just wanted to thank you for the Core 1 module
materials. I passed the Core 1 exam "with distinction" in the
top 5% of writers.
I could not have got anywhere near that result without the PASS courses.
The overall quality of the course was fantastic and the binder is extremely helpful. I found that as long as you familiarized yourself with the material prior to the class, the pace of the class was perfect; it moved quick enough that I didn't get bored but not so fast that I felt lost.
PASS's notes were very helpful in passing my exams. The notes and videos are very easy to understand, and the practice questions/cases served as a great primer for the exams.
Just wanted to thank you again for providing an amazing crash course for the CPA PEP Module Exams. I learned last week that I was successful in my first attempt at the tax and assurance exams! Don't think I would have done as well had I just studied on my own with my own material.
You guys have done a phenomenal job with the course as I scored very well on the Core 1 and Tax modules. Your notes are very comprehensive and the mock exams were a lot more difficult than the actual exam, which made me well prepared.
Thank you so much for your course materials, content and coming to Ryerson a couple years ago and sharing your insights on how many exams to challenge and in what order. I've passed all four in the spring and summer and could not have done it without you.
The PASS courses were an incredible supplement to my self-study plan. I was able to ask any questions in class that I stumbled upon while studying by myself, which really helped. I felt fully prepared before the challenge exams!
Your study material really helped - I passed my Core 2
Very useful. Good enough material to help you pass the challenge exams.
PASS has been very helpful for my previous Core 1 and Tax PEP Module Exams - thank you for what PASS does.
I passed both Core 2 and Assurance from the December sitting. Passed with distinction (whatever that means) thanks to your content!
I just wanted to say thanks for some great course material and interesting lectures. I was able to "PASS" all of my challenge exams the first time around. I give a lot of credit to the PASS program and have recommended it to friends who are/will be writing.
I just wanted to let you know that I passed my tax exam on my second attempt and it is almost all thanks to your program. All of the technical notes as well as the session notes were an excellent practical approach which helped me organize the topics in my head going into the exam.
I highly recommend PASS - their smoothly structured and highly interactive Challenge Exam program and study materials guaranteed my success with the exams. The instructors are knowledgeable and offer constructive and personalized feedback which greatly benefits the process."
I passed my Tax Elective and just wanted to thank you for that! Your
materials were great and I recommend it to all my friends who will be
sitting for their CPA.
Thanks again for offering these sessions. They were extremely helpful and I'm very glad to have gone through them.
Thank you for all your help and awesome practice materials and lectures.
I'm just writing to say thanks and express my appreciation for your CPA pass program. I just passed my fourth challenge exam and just wanted to say thank you to you and Michael for your well devised notes and videos, they were extremely helpful in my preparation for each challenge exam, I honestly don't know how I would have prepped without them.
I wanted to thank you both for the great videos and material provided, they were a great help in passing the Core 1 and Assurance exams!
I was thoroughly impressed with PASS and definitely owe a lot of my success to the materials provided, especially the lectures. I found your videos that share realistic exam views and scenarios to be the most beneficial. The approach taken by PASS in regards to important topics and not getting hung up on things (like pensions) was extremely useful and reassuring.
You and Michael were extremely helpful, there are numerous occasions where I sent emails at 12 and 1am and received responses almost instantly.
I put my faith in your judgement.
PASS works if you dedicate the time and follow the guidance of Michael and yourself.
Thanks for your help, (and for the awesome core 1 and 2 prep materials)
The PASS courses were a very important part of my studies and helped me achieve my success. The instructors were knowledgeable, enthusiastic, encouraging and were always willing to answer any questions I had. The tips provided by the instructors were invaluable to me. I found this to be an excellent program.
I really enjoyed the PASS Course approach to planning. Other courses I took also emphasized planning, but Ira and Michael were really able to show how planning should be properly done. The proprietary answer guides from PASS which concretely showed what was required for competent were very valuable. It was nice to have objectivity in marking instead of the vague guides provided by the institute. The handout materials were great references to go back to as they were completely comprehensive.
I found the PASS course very helpful in my preparation for the exam. The markers of the practice cases provided relevant feedback and enabled me to hone my case writing skills. I found the in-class debriefing and commentary provided a fresh perspective on case writing. The instructors were very experienced and took an active interest in the students. They could be counted on to respond to any questions about the exam or study techniques.
PASS focuses on what is important. The course helped me to develop an extremely concise writing style and also provided an excellent foundation for continued improvement right up to the exam.
I think that the information given throughout the sessions about what to expect on the exam was really valuable in feeling comfortable and confident.
I took your exam writing course this summer (just attended the two days of exam writing). I was seeking exam training that could be applied to the Trustee in Bankruptcy examination (the CNIE). My exam was at the end of October. And I just wanted to send you a quick note to say thank you, because I truly found the exam writing techniques helpful. And I was successful in the exam this year.
