OUR approach

How it works

Adaptive and linear

We know not all students learn the same, or are seeking the same learning experience. That’s why we offer both adaptive (customized to you) and linear (uniform) learning options. While our adaptive learning approach is best in class and a guaranteed time-saver, for those who want a step-by-step linear approach, we offer that too.

Tailored for you

For candidates who want the most value for their time spent studying, our technology creates hyper-customized learning plans that focus on the topics they need to learn so test day arrives faster.

Pass guarantee

We’re so confident in our CPA Review course—and the potential of our students—that we offer a pass guarantee. A passing grade on the CPA Exam is within reach.

A.S.A.P. TECHNOLOGY®

Get the most from your study minutes

Other review courses ask students to read every chapter, watch every video, and answer every question. Students end up studying too much. Our proprietary AI-powered software identifies what you do not know and tells you what you need to study to pass the exam. With bite-sized videos that focus on your knowledge gaps, you can be exam ready up to 4x faster than other review courses.

Start smart

By completing a specially selected cross-section of Multiple-Choice Questions (MCQs), our technology gauges your knowledge across content areas to generate a hyper-personalized study plan.

Level up

MyMCQ™ tailors your multiple-choice questions to your level, increasing in difficulty as your knowledge increases, shortening your time spent studying.

Proof point

Our candidates pass the CPA Exam at a much higher rate than the national average, while studying less. Difficult to believe, but we have the facts to back it up.

FAST FACTS

Fact: With Surgent, you don’t have to study every day.

Our instructors believe in breaks, and our study plans are built to ensure you can live a full life while studying for the exam.

Fact: No other CPA review course offers adaptive learning like Surgent.

While many of our competitors tout adaptive learning, they lack the technical capabilities of our A.S.A.P. Technology® to vary from student to student. An adaptive course should automatically update based on your progress; you shouldn’t have to manually change your study schedule or what you study on any given day.

Fact: Surgent students study less.

Our students study an average of four times less than our competitors—and pass at higher rates.
