Becker CPA Review sweeps Elijah Watt Sells award
Becker Professional Review, a subsidiary of DeVry Inc., has noted that all ten of the most recent Elijah Watt Sells Award winners, the highest scoring students for the multi-part Uniform CPA (Certified Public Accountant) Examination, prepared for the exam with Becker CPA Review, the global leader in CPA Exam preparation.
The Elijah Watt Sells Award, first awarded by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) in 1923 to honor CPA pioneer Elijah Watt Sells, is presented to the ten CPA candidates, who on their first attempt, achieve the highest cumulative scores for all four sections of Uniform CPA Examination within a calendar year. More than 76,000 candidates took the examination in 2007.
"We congratulate all of the award recipients for their wonderful achievement," said Tom Vucinic, President of Becker Professional Review. "We are honored that all ten winners prepared for the exam using Becker CPA Review and are proud of the comprehensive materials and expert instruction we provide all of our students to help them succeed on the exam."
Becker CPA Review's integrated approach is designed to meet the needs of its students through a variety of course formats. Becker's live course is offered at over 250 locations worldwide. Becker's online course offers the discipline of weekly online classes, instructor-led discussions with students, and the convenience of reviewing the lectures as often as students need. The self-study CD course provides students with even greater flexibility when preparing for the exam. Students can study whenever and wherever they want using the same prepared material as the live and online formats.
Voice of the Editor
Which isn’t completely true. I mean, occasionally I drop by when I manage to sneak out of the nonstop frat party over at Going Concern, but I’m mostly a wallflower over there. I’m happy to say that I’ve been given express permission (or explicit orders, if you like) to wander over here to AccountingWEB more often.
Why is that, you might ask? My job is to replace the irreplaceable Gail Perry as Editor-in-Chief. What does that mean? I don’t really know! I think it’ll be fun getting a feel for things, throwing in my own thoughts here and there, and listening to the discussions you’re having about the accounting profession.
