If it were not for the intensive Becker CPA review course there is a good chance that I would never have passed the CPA exam. I was married with a baby and one on the way. You can imagine how much study time that gave me and self study wasn’t cutting it. So I took the Becker class. I showed up twice a week. I did crazy amounts of homework and then I did it all again in the last two weeks to have the option of retaking the course…and I passed the exam. You’ll forgive me if I’m a little overboard with getting my CPE credits.
I learned today that Newt Becker, the founder of the Becker CPA review course, has passed away. There are a lot of CPA’s in the GP community and many have worked with Becker materials over the years. So this is my thank you to Newt Becker and the entire organization.
