Fast Forward Academy Launches New Study Planner Tool to Help Registered Tax Preparers Prepare for IRS Exam

Orlando, FL, Jan 31, 2013 ( via COMTEX) -- Fast Forward Academy is constantly striving to help tax professionals study for challenging IRS exams, and today, the company is announcing another tool to help students succeed. This new study planner will enable anyone preparing for the RTRP, EA or CPA exams to dynamically and systematically plan out tasks.

Students who sign up to take Fast Forward Academy's preparation class for the RTRP, EA or CPA exam will have access to this new study planner tool. Students will be able to map out study plans based on a start date and an end date. Students can also customize the calendar to exclude specific days, like a holiday or the weekend for example.

Interactive features have also been built into the study planner to help those studying for the tax preparer exam. The calendar can be set up to send email and text message reminders to the student regarding pre-assigned study tasks. Additionally, students are able to communicate via email and text messaging to reschedule tasks as needed. Students will even have the ability to create multiple calendars, if needed.

Fast Forward Academy president, Matt McBride, says that the study planner tool will work in collaboration with the course content itself to better help students succeed. "We understand that tax professionals and those studying for the RTRP, EA, and CPA exams have busy work schedules. Allowing our quality online tax preparation course content to be synced via an interactive calendar will help students prepare for the tax preparer exam that much more." He continues, "Being able to schedule tasks at a student's own pace and allowing for email or text reminders regarding such tasks will help that student more effectively manage his or her study time, and ultimately, better prepare for their exams." The calendar will enable those studying for the RTRP, EA, or CPA exams to prepare study sessions more effectively. From the calendar interface itself, students will be able to launch right into scheduled tasks or drag and drop tasks at will.
