Pros

Gleim is generous enough to allow all CPA candidates access to their materials for free to see if Gleim is right for them. You can test drive the course, practice the study questions, and see what it looks like on the inside without having to pay for anything.

The Gleim CPA test bank is the largest in the industry. This is a huge benefit because it allows candidates to practice near endless amounts of questions without running into the same ones over and over. This is probably the best study aid you could ask for when preparing for the CPA exam.
Gleim is unique to other companies in that they assign you a personal counselor who helps keep you motivated and on track during your study process. Thus, if you fall behind, your counselor will email you to help get you back on track. You can also call your accounting expert with questions about the exam or review materials. This is huge for candidates who need more help with concepts.

Unlike other CPA review companies, Gleim CPA puts no time limits on your study process. Thanks to their Access Until You Pass guarantee, your materials will never expire and you’ll never have to pay extra fees to review or update them. The only exception is if you want to receive an updated version of their physical textbook, although you only need to pay the shipping costs.

Cons

Detailed information is a good thing. Too much information is a bad thing. Gleim can sometimes walk the line. Their materials are extremely detailed and sometimes too detailed to the point where they make candidates study too many things that will not actually be on the exam.

There is no specific mobile app for the Gleim CPA Review program. This can be a big deal for people who are always on the move and need to study from their phone or tablet. Fortunately, Gleim still provides excellent mobile functionality through browser optimization and downloadable audio lectures, although a dedicated app would be a nice addition further down the line.
