Good review of Colorado CPA requirements as it relates to being a practicing CPA in Colorado. As well as a good overall review of what you need to keep your license active.

Materials were solid - a little wordy in spots - but helped identify the various rules and regulations. Tough to make this one much more concise.

I liked the call out boxes and examples. The text was otherwise dry to read through.
