What’s Included In Each CPA Exam Review Course

Complete with digital flashcards, simulations, practice tests and homework, each of these courses is designed to help you master the primary topics that make up the almighty CPA Exam. We have broken down each part of the exam into four courses and then dissected those sections even further into easy-to-digest topics and lectures. Take a closer look at what each section has to offer!

Business Environment and Concepts (BEC)

The Business Environment and Concepts course is divided into four classes, each of which is made up of engaging lectures and homework designed to help you learn, retain and master the course material – not just memorize a few answers. We will measure your current level of understanding when it comes to business concepts and a CPA’s professional duties and responsibilities in a business environment. From there, MDS CPA Review will use your unique data to highlight areas that need additional attention to best prepare you for that portion of the exam.
