Keller Graduate School AC 594 Regulation NOVEMBER 2011 - Syllabus Instructor: Mario J. Perez, CPA Tel: (954) 499-9632 E-mail: [email protected] Required Textbooks: The text for this course is the BECKER CPA REVIEW – Regulation (2011 Edition). Reading the text is essential for developing an understanding of each topic. Lectures are very helpful in focusing the student’s efforts on the most important and most likely tested areas. However, while they complement the textbooks, lectures don’t replace them. Class materials also include the Course DVD that includes software to work the multiple-choice questions offline as well as the simulations. Students should view the Introductory Video included on this software before beginning the program of study. Class Methodology: Students will cover materials in the textbook in conjunction with the national instructors’ presentation of the materials in the lectures. In addition to covering content, students will work both case-based simulations and multiple-choice questions. Every problem-oriented question worked in class is taken from a prior CPA exam or created to assist in the student’s understanding of the course content. “Distracters” and “blind alleys” are identified as students read and answer questions. Finally, students receive solutions to the problems so they can compare their answers with the correct answers and receive immediate feedback on how they are doing. More importantly students will learn a problem-solving approach for them to efficiently get the correct answer to each question and the best method of setting up answers using various formats. All of these exam techniques are designed to help students maximize their points on the CPA exam. Course Structure: The course consists of lectures that will be covered on the following dates: Regulation Only Week of Courses OCT 24 R1 OCT 31 R2 R3 NOV 7 R4 R5 NOV 14 R6 R7 Each lesson consists of reading assignments, a lecture, homework problems, and quizzes.
