Let’s Build a Mental Map

Yeah, sure, we are CPA’s… but beyond that we are storytellers, we are innovators, we are problem solvers, we are visionaries and we are appreciators of a damn good joke.

Did you know: 90% of information transmitted to the brain is visual?

Did you know: The retina processes visuals 60,000x faster than text?

Did you know: Universal CPA Review is changing the entire landscape of CPA test prep as you know it?

You’re probably wondering why a couple millennials would quit their accounting jobs and spend their life creating Universal CPA Review, right? Well, after we both passed the CPA exam, the question we kept asking ourselves was – “Why isn’t there a review course that has study materials that align with how students truly learn this stuff?” That’s why we introduced visual learning to the CPA exam!

Traditionally, no, accounting concepts are not typically known as the most riveting topics out there. However, that doesn’t mean that you should feel compelled to scream into a pillow while learning it! That’s why Universal CPA Review not only prides itself on delivering extremely intuitive explanations that align with how today’s candidates learn, but we’re also going to have a little bit of fun along the way.

Let’s face it, it won’t be easy for dinosaurs named Allen or Gene to give you that “Aha!” moment, or that “Oh, now I see it…” moment, or even the “Hey, this is kind of fun…” moment. That’s where we come in. No more static, outdated materials. When it comes to finding the correct formula to pass the CPA exam, Universal CPA Review is here to offer you everything and more. At this point, you know where you’re going. We are just here to help get you there.

I’ve spent the last 5 years teaching CPA review in New York City. Let’s face it, the CPA Exam is gross, but that’s where I come in. Let’s just get this done.

Q&A With Joey

Did you pass each exam on your first try?

I think the better question is “did I pass any section on my first try?” I remember calling my dad at 3 am after failing audit for the third time with a 74% telling him that I wanted to quit. He told me “you could always just go sell insurance or something”. Nothing against selling insurance, but I knew in that moment that quitting was not an option.
What is your most embarrassing moment?

Walking into a sliding door. Long story short, I was introducing myself to a girlfriend’s parents for the first time. The sliding door was incredibly clear, any reasonable person would also think that the door was open. While saying “hi my name is..” I smashed right into it.



I spent 9+ years at PwC (Audit and FDD). The CPA license is extremely valuable and I will work 24/7 to help you obtain it! Let’s do it!

Q&A With Matt

Fortunately, I was able to pass all 4 four exams in less than 3 months. Unfortunately, I had to pay to take audit twice! I mixed up the dates and thought I was taking it on Friday when in fact I was scheduled to take it the day before. However, I was able to reschedule the exam for the following week!
What is the best trip you have ever taken?

While I was still at PwC, I took a sabbatical and did a month-long ski trip all over the west coast. It was a blast to meet people from all around the world! While the trip was great, I did realize that there is nothing more important in this world than family and friends!
