How Do the Live Online Classes Work?

We will be updating the sample link soon.

The best way to understand how the live classes work is to replay one of the sessions; click on the image to the left and you can experience a replay of “Everything you wanted to know about the EA Exam but were afraid to ask” Courses take place online, Students download secure online conferencing software to their computers which enables them to meet online, speak directly to instructors, meet in chat rooms and message instructors and other students directly

Sessions are recorded (like this one) and are made available to students for subsequent review. These sessions also make up the basis of the Self Study course.


How Does It Work?

TaxMama® breaks down the three separate parts of the EA Exam into a series of classes. All lessons and review sessions are delivered online by TaxMama® and experienced Tax professionals using live conferencing software and are recorded. Lecture notes can be viewed online or downloaded to your iPod, Blackberry, PC or Mac. Students are teamed up with Study Buddies and have access to 24/7 study halls.

What Do I Get When I Sign Up?

Live students get to participate in all the live sessions of the course. Each session is recorded. Everyone (live and self-study) gets these versions of the recordings:

  • You will be able to view an audio/visual of the actual session later the same night or the next day.
  • You will have access to the PDF file of the course lecture before each class starts.
  • You will have an MP3 file of the recording that you can download and carry with you, within about 48 hours.

Self Study students are entitled to share in the wealth of materials that the Live Study Course provides, including the 24/7 study halls to use with Study Buddies. The only exceptions are not getting the Deluxe version of The Tax Book and not being able to attend the live classroom sessions. For folks whose schedules make it difficult to commit to specific times, the Self Study course is ideal. But if you can find a way to participate in the live classes, do it. That’s where all the fun and mischief happen.
