Not only do more of our students pass the first time, but they pass while studying far fewer hours than they would with other courses.

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.

While other courses take as much as 200 hours to complete one section, our students are ready to pass with 46 hours of study, on average.

While other courses tout adaptiveness, our analysis shows that their technologies fall short.

Students are still expected to read every chapter, watch every video, drill every MCQ, and practice every simulation. Those hours really add up!

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