Mark Malinao, CPA (US, PH), CMA (US)

Now that I have already passed the 4 parts of the CPA exams, I would like to express my sincere gratitude to Prof. Mansour. From day 1, his supplemental review course made complicated topics simple especially Governmental Accounting. I had no knowledge about US Govt Acctg and still manage to grasp the concepts through his simple but effective way of teaching. I highly recommend Prof. Mansour supplemental material for all aspiring CPAs. The supplemental course was aligned with my course provider (Gleim) which made it very easy to follow.

Shubham Banerjee, Certified Public Accountant (US) | Audit Manager at BDO UK LLP

Mansour’s video lectures are extremely helpful! While studying for CPA, there were multiple chapters which I wasn’t comfortable with at first go, and that is when I would turn to Mansour’s lectures, which would help me understand key concepts through easy communication and clear examples. Thank you for your contribution towards my CPA completion journey.




Ananya Chatterjee, US CPA || Finance and accounting professional

During my CPA preparation, I was struggling with AUD, that’s when I came across Farhatlectures. The lectures are targetted exactly to bridge the gap in understanding of the students. The true/false questions makes you aware where you stand. The 500 AICPA question module is also very helpful to understand the requirements from actual exam point of view. I used the subscription throughout my preparation and was successful. Highly recommended.

Aramazd Demirkhanyan, CPA

I used Professor Farhat’s lectures in complement to my Becker review course. The lectures are in depth and covered the topics that Becker either omitted or were quite short. Professor uses comprehensive and plain language and provides many examples during the lectures, so even pretty challenging topics are affordable for students to understand and absorb.

Nivashini Kamaraj Lilly CPA (Awaiting License)

Recently, I cleared all four parts of CPA exams. Thanks to Farhat videos for keeping me on track!!
Farhat resources are very helpful in understanding the material and motivational. You can reach out directly to Farhat for any of your questions. He provides the proper guidance. I highly recommended for all CPA aspirants. Stay focused and on track!!

Arul Murugan Subbaiah

The videos on Government Accounting were simply great! The way you have designed the content and presentation made the entire concept very simple, easy to understand and remember. Thank you so much for making this

Arun G., Director, Technology Risk Consulting at RSM US LLP

Professor Farhat’s lectures were organized in a manner which mapped to my CPA study course. I used the lectures to dive deep into certain areas which were very difficult. The detailed explanations were exactly what I needed to thoroughly understand the material. I recall Professor Farhat saying that there are no “tips” or “shortcuts” in studying for the CPA; one needs to master the material. His products are a testament to that, and they help you truly learn the material. In addition to lectures, Professor Farhat’s site also has hundreds of practice multiple choice questions, simulations, as well as videos of him solving MCQs/simulations. I found the materials to be very easy to use. On occasion, I had reached out to Professor Farhat and found him to be very encouraging and helpful. Beyond CPA study, I have been inspired by Professor Farhat (he mentions some of his story through the videos). Professor Farhat also speaks at various CPA societies and does a lot for the accounting profession. I am grateful to Professor Farhat for everything he does. He helped me to be successful in my journey to become a CPA.

Stephanie Molina, CPA

Whether you’re looking to successfully pass all 4 sections of the Uniform CPA exam, get extra help in your accounting courses, or even just to brush up on certain accounting topics, Professor Farhat is your key! I highly attribute my success in passing the CPA exams within 9 months (while working full time in public accounting) to him. I had started my CPA journey about 5 years ago with Wiley and was unsuccessful various times. It wasn’t until I finally opened the books once again last year, and found Professor Farhat that things took a turn for the better. For context here are my scores:

His lessons are explained in a manner that can be understood, and without all the extra jargon like in your average CPA review course. He gives real life examples that help make all the difference, and most importantly he delivers his content at a price that is affordable.

Thank you for everything Professor Farhat, you helped changed my life forever when I was able to add those extra three letters to my last name!


Krishma Shukla, Audit staff | US CPA (awaiting license)

Very helpful in understanding the concepts and getting the basics right. A perfect supplement to the CPA review course!











Rafael Valentin, Enrolled Agent/Accountant

Mr. Farhat’s lectures make the complex, intricate topics of accounting simple. His content has played a huge role in my learning experience and is one of the main reasons why I got over the hump of the CPA exam. I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!

Krishma Shah, CPA (Pursuing) | Chartered Accountant | Ex-Deloitte | Tax | Regulatory | Accountancy

I recently appeared for my Regulations test of CPA. I cleared with a score of 86. I am writing this to specially thank you for your lectures as they made my life so easy while understanding and remembering things.

Kasey Luu, CPA, MSA, Tax Senior at Deloitte

I’ve been watching Prof. Farhat’s videos since I took my first intermediate accounting classes back in undergrad. During my CPA journey, I referred back to his lectures when I had a problem understanding a concept. Prof. Farhat did a great job in making the concept clear and easy to understand by using an numerical example and walking me through the calculation step by step. As I completed my CPA exam, I’d like to thank him for providing such beautiful materials.
I strongly recommend that you make a good use of his free channel as supplement to your main studying materials. I know you already have so many video lectures in your review course to be completed but it’s definitely not a waste of your time watching an additional videos on the important topics or those that you are not quite sure about.
Best of luck in obtaining your professional license!

Andrew Manningham, CPA Accountant and Perpetual Student

Mansour Farhat’s accounting videos were instrumental in my success throughout college. I frequently relied on his instruction when I was struggling with various topics. I spent countless hours watching his videos over and over again, and I strongly recommend his videos to anyone who is struggling as an accounting major. He is very encouraging and communicates clearly in a manner that makes complicated concepts understandable by giving very detailed examples and articulating exactly how the concepts work in the real world

Ariel Lee, CPA | CMA | CFA candidate L1 passed | Sr. Finance Partner at Siemens Healthineers

Supplemental CPA exam materials provided by Mansour is really helpful for those difficult chapters. I did benefit a lot from it during my CPA exam journey.

Slobodanka Mitchell,Experienced Assurance Staff at EY | CPA Candidate 4/4 Passed

If you are struggling with FAR topics Mansour Farhat is here to help you. Not only that he directly answered many questions in the FAR Facebook group, his videos also help students with topics that they struggle with. He definitely helped me understand intercompany transactions, which was the subject I’ve never seen or studied before. I passed FAR on a first try. Thank you!

Aaron Rafelson,Tax Associate at EY

His videos really helped me on the topics I was lost on. If anyone is studying accounting I cannot recommend his videos enough.

Suellen DeLaughter,Credentialed Tax Accountant

Mansour Farhat’s videos played a pivotal role in preparing for the IRS Enrolled Agent exams. The Income Tax course broke down the concepts while building competency and confidence in my ability to successfully prepare tax returns or provide tax advice to clients. His course thoroughly prepared me to pass each exam on the first attempt. With my new Enrolled Agent status, I landed a job in the tax field. Thanks, Mansour Farhat!

Professor Farhat’s lectures were a great supplement to my CPA review course! His lectures became a staple to my final review study sessions, as they provided clarification on topics that I was unsure of. The lectures are concise and easy to follow along with, and they’re a great resource for anyone studying for the CPA exam or for those who are working toward their accounting degree!

Joshua Kokhavim, CPA,Senior Tax Associate at PwC

Donald Olson,Senior Inventory Accounting Specialist at DENSO

Professor Farhat’s instructive videos were instrumental to finishing my degree in Accounting. As an entirely online student, I often missed the benefit of having an instructor I could follow along with. Professor Farhat’s videos helped bridge that gap. Regardless of your goals in Accounting; be it one class, an entire degree, CPA, or CMA, Professor Farhat’s instruction will help you.

Laura Miles, CPA, Audit Senior Accountant

Elizabeth Johnson, CPA,Senior Tax Associate at PKF O’Connor Davies, LLP

Professor Farhat was incredibly helpful to me during my CPA studies. His videos are very easy to follow and can be supplemented with any review course. I highly recommend them to any accounting student and aspiring CPA. He helped me pass all 4 sections on my first try, and I only wish I had discovered his youtube channel in college.

Daniel Lipkin, CPA,Certified Public Accountant

Ryan Bakke, CPA,I Help Real Estate Investors Become Tax Smart

Greetings CPA/Aspiring CPA! I used Farhat Youtube Lectures in addition to my Becker Course Material. The Farhat Youtube videos worked to my advantage because they offered a different perspective than what the Becker class taught as well as Farhat dove deeper into certain topics and I was able to understand things better than I would using Becker material. I believe Farhat puts a spin on the course material thats more than just for the CPA, this is educational in nature and goes beyond the CPA exam. Thank you Mansour Farhat for the educational material and I would recommend it to all CPA candidates!

Alfredo Vera, Jr., CPA,Auditor at Cascos & Associates, PC

Jasmina N., Auditor

Thank you very much for your lectures, Professor Farhat! They were my #1 tool every time I could not understand a topic, starting from my masters all the way to my CPA exam. With your help, I passed all four parts of the CPA exam on my first attempt in less than a year. THANK YOU!

Sylvia Katabaazi CPA MBA,Senior Accounting Manager

I have used Mansour’s CPA lectures to supplement my main CPA course. I subscribed to his lectures and gain a deeper understanding of every aspect of the FAR topics. His lectures on bonds, business combinations, leases, and inventory (valuation) were so helpful. I got a simulation on each topic and I could hear his voice during the exam. Five years after passing and getting my license I am still subscribing to his lectures. I love his teaching style and passion for teaching aspiring CPAs. Keep up the good work Mansour.

Professor Farhat’s lectures are extremely helpful for difficult concepts like you will face on the FAR exam. He does such a wonderful job of explaining step-by-step how to work through problems and also gives you valuable examples on how to be successful on the CPA exam. I have spoke to so many people that Professor Farhat has helped through the years. He truly is a leader in the accounting field. I highly recommend using his videos to be more successful on the CPA exam. Thank you Professor Farhat for helping me pass my CPA exam! Last exam passed on 2/22/2021.

Rose Marie Watson, CPA, MAcc,Educational Policy Analyst @ Florida Department of Education | CPA

I found Professor Farhat’s lectures when I was studying for the CPA exam. I had already purchased a full review program, but there were some areas where I needed a little extra material or where it was helpful to have a topic explained in a different way. That’s where Professor Farhat’s lectures came in. They helped me better understand difficult concepts and boosted my confidence in my knowledge and ability to pass the exams, and I did! I passed all 4 exam sections on the first try with scores ranging from 92 to 96. Professor Farhat’s lectures were a key ingredient in my recipe to success and I highly recommend them to all CPA candidates, even if you already use another program as well.

Brooke Goodall, CPA,Assurance Senior at Moss Adams

Professor Farhat has never met me, but he was so kind to me and treated me like one of his own students. He provided me with the courage to pass my CPA exam and has been so interested in my progress. PLEASE watch his YouTube channel if you have any accounting questions, or are preparing for the CPA exam. He makes the most intimidating topics easy to understand. Thank you Professor Farhat!

Rakshanda Amte,Senior Auditor at Euronet

Professor Farhat’s videos on YouTube are the best. Although I used Becker software, whenever I use to get stuck on few concepts his videos helped me lot! He explains every minute detail with full enthusiasm that too each and every time.
I highly recommend to watch his videos !

Hem Mehta,Tax Senior at Deloitte

Professor Farhat’s videos were incredibly thorough and effective. I watched them whenever I got stuck with any of the topics of CPA exam. I can absolutely say that his videos played a huge role in I passing all the tests. Can’t recommend enough.

Charlene Chen, CMA, CPA,Commercial Finance | Budget & Forecast | Strategic Planning | Project Management | Vendavo Pricing

Prof. Farhat is a highly skilled CPA and Accounting lecturer. I passed all my CPA exams on first try with the lectures from Prof. Farhat on YouTube. I have been out of college for almost 20 years and studying for exams are no longer the easiest thing for me. I always resorted to his lectures to learning and reinforce the concepts with his easy-to-understand teaching style. For instance, I have never learned Government Accounting while studying in college and I also never worked in the Government sector. I totally didn’t understand the topic while studying for FAR. Prof. Farhat’s lectures taught me the basics of modified accrual accounting and government financial statements. My confidence was built up after going through his lectures. I got more than a handful of MCQ on this topic alone while taking the FAR portion of the CPA. Thank you Prof. Farhat!

Jahaziel Aguilar, CPA,Business Manager at Dolan Auto Group

I passed all 4 sections of my CPA exams in large part thanks to Mansour Farhat’s videos. He explains topics very well and was my go-to whenever I got stuck. I highly recommend him for CPA exam help!

Hi Professor Farhat,
I passed FAR and REG of the CPA exam. I watched all of your accounting lectures on youtube and they helped me a lot. They are understandable and I love how you explained the terminology, how you gave us the example so that the concept makes more sense. That way helps us to approach the terms from many prospectives. I highly recommend CPA candidates to take Professor Farhat’s lectures if you get stuck on any topic.

Hi Mansour

I really want to thank you for helping me attain my accounting degree. You were big part of my accomplishment and I watched your YouTube lectures to tackle my hard exams. Thank you again for making the lives of many accounting students including myself easier with your simple to understand lectures!

Thanks again,


Elizabeth NG, CPA, Certified Public Accountant

I had zero knowledge in US tax and US law. I felt that I was not ready for my REG session. I feel very lucky to find Professor’s YouTube channel and his coaching. He makes complicated concepts become easy to understand. Whenever I had questions, even Professor was very busy, he still helped me solve my tax questions with his best effort! He provided a good strategy for me on how to prepare my REG exam. Even though the last minute, Professor would answer my Estate Tax question. He is the best Professor, I have ever met in my life! I get 85 in my REG exam, it is solely because of Professor’s great help and teaching! He is a super good and knowledgeable Professor. He can make those complicated tax ordinance become common sense. Comparing reading the textbook versus Professor’s YouTube channel, I definitely will choose his YouTube channel! Because it will save my time and understand the accounting concepts in a much better way! Again, thanks Professor Farhat for your great time and effort helping me to pass REG! Every day, you answered my questions patiently and super helpful! You are super great! Thanks, Professor!

Ted Makosz, CPA

I highly recommend Farhat Accounting Lectures, I scored cumulatively 37 points higher utilizing his lectures in passing the CPA exam.

Initially, I used a commercial brand CPA review. Going through the motions of watching lectures, taking notes, working homework problems, I often found myself trying to memorize mnemonics and numerous steps to solve problems. This technique led to confusion and failing results.

After failing the exam, I reached out to Professor Farhat. I will always remember what he told me on that day, “If you shoot for the stars, you’ll land on the moon”. In other words, his lectures covered all areas tested on the exam in full detail. He integrated real world examples to help drive the material in a relatable fashion. As a result, I finally had the big picture and comprehended the information—no more gimmick “tips and tricks”.

The CPA exam is a formidable task to accomplish, however that doesn’t mean you have to go in alone. Professor Farhat is extremely talented as he makes challenging exam topics easy to comprehend and retain. I can truly say that Farhat Accounting Lectures were a great contributor towards my success.

Dawei Liu, Director – Bank Entities Controller

I have been watching Professor Farhat’s CPA lectures since college, it is definitely one of the best channel on YouTube.

Meena Jaiswal, CPA, CPA (USA) – License, Montana State Board

I passed my CPA exams this year in Feb 2018. While I have already thanked everyone who had contributed towards my success, I am still to mention one and pass on the credit to Prof. Farhat, who does not even know that he helped me throughout. CPA exams are not only a test of knowing and remembering but a test of how well you understand the concept and are able to apply the same in a given scenario.

I used to ensure that I understand the concept well and my endeavors lead me to YouTube to search for some tutorials that fulfills my purpose. And there I found Prof Farhat. His YouTube lectures were exactly what I was looking for and served the purpose. He makes the concept clear using the logical explanations, multiple examples and testing questions. My study plan had a section “Prof. Farhat YouTube Lectures” for every topic I was preparing for. His lectures are organized/Playlist by topics which are still added to my YouTube Library, for each section by chapter and by topic. Another point worth mentioning is he has uploaded all his video lectures free of cost. Not as bait for asking money that unblocks the subsequent video only when you make the payment. That was a big relief while you are already under the stress of preparing for the exams.

Thanks Prof. Farhat for being thoughtful towards the knowledge seekers. I really appreciate your gesture and thank you for your contribution in my passing the CPA exams.

Idan Cohen, MBA, CPA, Translator at Translation Back Office

I was fortunate enough to come across Professor Farhat’s videos on YouTube, studying for FAR. My main go-to review course was good, but I felt I needed to take a step back to basics and review some long-forgotten/new concepts that my review course did not cover well. Professor Farhat has it all. His lectures are well organized, and you can pick and choose specific sections to listen to. He walks you step by step through them and takes the time to go over the hard concepts for reinforcement. His videos combine thorough explanations and extended examples including Journal Entries for FAR/AUD, which, as I came to learn, are CRUCIAL for passing both exams. The feeling you get watching his videos is that he is not afraid to touch and dwell on those hard-to-grasp concepts. For instance, he’d be illustrating a concept and then you’re thinking to yourself: “wow, this is great.  If he only took the time to journalize it all”. Next thing you know, he does exactly that, leaving zero room for doubt about what just happened there.

Professor Farhat is an accounting powerhouse. Full of energy and enthusiasm, he narrates his videos with great diligence, leaving no stone unturned. If you started your CPA journey or about to start, you’ll quickly learn that passing these exams boils down to coverage, not necessarily to depth. Having the powerhouse he is by your side coupled with a good review course, will get you over the edge for sure. I can’t thank him enough for his videos, support, and for truly caring about random CPA-candidates (like me 🙂 contacting him for advice. I can say wholeheartedly that I owe him many points on my FAR exam, and for helping me make it to the finish line. Check out his videos on YouTube or his website: and contact him directly if you have any questions. He is truly a great guy and an accounting professor!

Mansour Farhat is a very approachable teacher. Students commented very positively that his methods were effective in leading them through the learning process while teaching accounting courses at DeSales University. His work helped establish the new Lansdale campus with a quality reputation.

Ismael Arcelay, MBA, Bienes Raices / Real Estate

Mansour’s explanations of theories, methods and procedures of accounting practices for MBA level classes and case history were so fluently explained allowing me to gain insight beyond the obvious answer.
