High CPA Exam Pass Rates
Controversy always hovers around the claims that CPA review providers make about their pass rates. Some providers make unrealistic claims about their pass rates using very flawed methodology or subjective internal survey administration. And some providers make no claim at all stating there is no unbiased way to calculate pass rates.
While coming up with a specific pass rate for all students of a particular review provider is impossible (exam scores are provided to the individual candidates only), calculating an unbiased pass rate is not.
Becker Professional Education is the only CPA review provider that engages an independent third-party research firm to conduct research to validate our pass rate claim. “We invest in this research every year to show potential candidates that our program is the most successful. Students who prepare with Becker pass at double the rate of non-Becker candidates,” states Thomas Rogowski, Accounting Program Director at Becker Professional Education.
The third-party research firm uses statistical sampling to calculate Becker students’ pass rates. Based on an estimate of Becker’s share of the CPA exam review market, the pass rate of non-Becker candidates is calculated. When these figures are compared, the results have always shown that Becker students pass at double the rate—or more—of non-Becker students.
In the past 50 years, Becker has helped more than 400,000 candidates achieve their CPA designation. We’re confident we can do the same for you.
