What sets our course apart from the others is the 1-to-1 personalization approach that we take in our software.

By generating totally unique study programs for each student based on their knowledge of exam content, and optimizing those plans in real-time in response to their progress, our students get exam-ready faster than ever before.

In fact, our students are ready to pass with 57.8 hours of study, on average.

While other courses tout adaptiveness, our analysis shows that their softwares fall short. Some categorize their students into broad groups that they’ve assembled based on their users’ past performance, while others lack a suitable assessment, and so have no basis for customizing the study material.

This is problematic. When CPA Review programs aren’t customized 100%, the student is left to study all of the material to make sure they’re prepared– or worse, are given so-called “personalized” study plans that leave the student underprepared. And when these “personalized” programs are based on historical data, they are simply unable to help their students navigate CPA Exam changes in real time.

Surgent students are able to pass all four CPA Exam sections in the time it takes students to study for one section with a competitor.

Not only does our smart software steer you to the topics you need to focus on, but the precise questions, too. With MyMCQ, we’ll show you the best questions for your skill level. Students who are just beginning to learn a topic will see more basic questions, while those who’ve demonstrated a greater understanding will be challenged more.

By using study material that’s appropriately challenging, we’re able to get you exam-ready faster than ever before.

Since this feature was released, Surgent students reduced their study time by an additional 17%!
