Becker Professional Education announced that they'll be adding new tools and technology to their CPA Exam Review in the coming months. The new improvements to the course will include modular content, interactive tools, and integrated materials to offer more custom options, flexibility, and feedback to test-takers.
The new improvements are in response to the most recent changes to the CPA Exam starting April 2017.
“All of the innovative elements that will be offered as part of Becker’s CPA Exam Review...provide each candidate with a personalized learning approach to help them achieve their goal of attaining the CPA credential,” said John Roselli, president at Becker Professional Education, in a statement. “Nearly 50,000 hours and $3 million were spent on just the course itself, to develop a tool to help our candidates feel better prepared on exam day.”
