“Why We Chose It: Surgent CPA Review provides students with AI software to determine exactly what topics need to be covered. This ensures the shortest study time. Their advanced online technological tools set them apart from the others.” – Investopedia, rating Surgent CPA Review as “Best Artificial Intelligence”
While Surgent CPA Review as a company is relatively new to the CPA Exam space, it's actually run by CPA Review industry veterans (Liz Kolar, Sean Mullen, etc.) with decades of experience. Most companies have a book/lecture + test bank approach, whereas Surgent's foundation was their test bank and adaptive learning first, and then added videos and other features later. Primarily known for their Continuing Professional Education (CPE), Surgent has also become an emerging force in the CMA, CIA, CISA, and Enrolled Agent space.
Surgent CPA discounts their courses frequently.
Surgent CPA Review Ultimate vs. Premier vs. Essentials
The Surgent CPA Prep Course has three course options: Ultimate Pass ($2,999 retail), Premier Pass ($2,399 retail), and Essentials Pass ($1,599 retail).
I'm just going to say this out of the gate: The Surgent CPA Essentials Pass looks pretty darn good for the price.
Yes, you're missing out on the audio (NINJA has the best audio – you don't need it anyway) 😀 and printed books of the Ultimate Pass, but for the price, it's hard to beat.
Normally, the “bottom” package of a course is just “meh” and there to make the other two look more attractive, but Surgent did a good job of making their “basic” Essentials offering legit.
