Success Stories
I worked with Chris to pass the CPA exam (Reg)and it really made a difference. He gave me the confidence to study and pass the exam. It was easy to deal with Tutor the People and since I did not use up all of my hours they easily refunded what was left over. I would recommend any of my friends use this service.

Do you qualify to take the CPA?

Before signing up to the CPA, you must first obtain a Notice to Schedule (NTS). To acquire an NTS, you should apply to take the exam then wait for NASBA’s Board of Accountancy to determine that you are eligible.

You must obtain as NTS for BEC, REG, FAR, and AUD. So four Notices to Schedule total. Each NTS is valid for a specific amount of time, and cannot be used once it expires. So remember to schedule your exam appointment soon after obtaining your NTS.
