Not just a game-changer... a life-changer

We get that, and it’s part of what makes our approach so special. Surgent students pass at a higher rate—and study less. Sound too good to be true? It’s not. Here’s how we stack up.

Inside the Surgent experience

Students, graduates, and learning and development professionals share their stories.

"It's a great CPA Review course. As I study the material, the system keeps my score and tells me my progress towards the CPA Exam. I would highly recommend to all CPA candidates.”

Hiromune T. | Student

"This program was the key to my success in passing all 4 parts of the exam. The high energy lectures were clear, precise, and addressed every topic on the actual exams. I would have never passed the exam if it wasn’t for the incredible instructors.”

Martina F. | Deloitte

"Glad I went with the Ultimate Pass because the tutor has been instrumental on developing a study strategy and a path through the exam.”

Brian S. | Student

“I struggled over three years to pass the exam. Surgent CPA Review was definitely a huge key to my success. I was able to pass all four sections in a row. I studied with three other review courses and can say with confidence this one is the best.”

Lauren F. | Ernst & Young

“Easy to use, printed material arrived quickly after placing my order. Once you take an exam, it tailors your review course based on how you did. Granted I have only been through the FAR section, but so far so good!”

Stephen R. | Student

“Surgent CPA’s course is the only one that offers CPA candidates with a ReadySCORE that indicates when someone is ready to sit for the exam. Plus, it’s the only course I’ve seen that demonstrates the ability to reduce a candidate’s overall study hours.”


“This is an excellent source to prepare for the CPA in the most effective and modern way. Its well planned and well-organized course structure is easy to follow and grasp the contents faster.”

Srinivasan L. | Student

“After doing much research, I was left between Surgent's Ultimate Pass and Becker. After speaking with career counselors, mentors, and CPAs, I realized that I liked the AI guided approach from Surgent better.”

Trevor L. | Student
