Becker Professional Education announced that students of its partner, Wake Forest University in Winston Salem, NC achieved the highest pass rate in the nation on the CPA exam. Wake Forest began offering the Becker’s CPA Exam Review course in 1997, and since then they have earned the top ranking nine times, more than any other university in the country.

Becker Professional Education works closely with the University’s faculty to prepare the students for the exam. As a part of their education, all Wake Forest accounting students receive access to the Becker’s CPA Exam Review course. The fully integrated program features 100 hours of expert instruction, 200 task-based simulations and two full final exams per part that mirror the actual CPA exam. Students also meet with Becker representatives once a year to discuss the CPA Exam application process and what to expect on the exam.

Becker Professional Education is a global leader in professional education serving the accounting, finance and project management fields. Since it started out over 50 years ago, Becker has earned a strong track record of student success. The exam review system has produced almost half a million passing students, including 14 of the 15 top scorers on the CPA Exam in 2010. According to averages of AICPA-published pass rates, Becker students pass at twice the rate of all CPA Exam candidates who did not take a Becker review course.
