Did You Know the National Pass Rate is <50%?

Not only is the pass rate on the CPA Exam just 47% (according to the AICPA), but the rate at which candidates are passing all parts in under 18 months has dropped 27% since 2012. 

Though the exam has gotten more challenging in recent years and includes more content than eve before, most providers haven't changed their approach. They just suggest that you study more. And the simple reality is that--despite many top providers' claims of 88% and higher pass rates--their math just doesn't add up, given the national rates reported by the AICPA.

Surgent CPA Review is the only provider that takes a different approach: one that helps students both study less and pass faster!

Key Facts About Surgent CPA Review's Pass Rate:

  • Students who followed our suggested plan achieved an 89.7% pass rate

  • Students who reached at least an 80% trending score in our program passed 100% of the time

  • Students attained these incredible pass rates while averaging less than 95 hours of study time per part
