[CPA Study Filter]: So I have a choice between Bisk, MicroMash (PassMatrix), and Becker for study guides to the NJ/NY CPA, which one should I use? Also, if there’s a better one out there that I don’t know about, please inform.

Price doesn't really matter too much to me. I don't really want to attend classes since I am already busy enough.

Also, if you are up to giving any personal advice/words of encouragement about the exam, I'd be down for giving out bonus points.

First of all, the CPA exam is going to be the same regardless of which state you take it in. It's a uniform exam that is taken in all 50 states, plus some territories.

It also depends on what kind of student you are. I'm someone who has to have someone talk in front of me, so I ended up picking a live CPA review class. When picking a program, I looked at Becker and they have good classes, with the exception of a lot of pre-recorded financial accounting experts, etc. There are plenty of internet classes that are good, which might be good for you. If you are capable of studying on your own, more power to you, but this takes a lot of self-discipline.

If you adequately prepare, you should pass all 4 sections the first time. Should that not be the case, ask or look into how much you would have to pay (if anything?) to retake the class. Many of them will let you do it again, as long as you pay for new books, and if you've been keeping up with the homework (depends on the program).
