Becker CPA Review Courses Offered

Contact: Iris Foster, Interim Public Information Officer, 432-552-2806

After UTPB accounting majors graduate from the AACSB-accredited College of Business and Engineering, many sit for the CPA exam to become certified public accountants. However, the content and format of this exam will change in January, so UTPB is offering the Becker CPA Review beginning Saturday, Sept. 11, so students can prepare for the Financial and Audit portions of the exam. IFRS and International Auditing and Ethics will be added to these sections of the exam in 2011. It takes a week to receive study materials, so early registration is strongly recommended. Becker review on other sections will be taught by UTPB faculty during the fall and throughout 2011.

Dr. Shirley Davenport of the UTPB accounting faculty (and a Becker instructor) will offer study aids for the financial section Sept. 11, from 8:30 to 12:30, and all day Sept. 18, 25, Oct. 2 and 9 (8:30 to 5:30) at UTPB’s CEED Building, Hwy. 191 at FM 1788. Registration may be accomplished by calling Becker CPA Review at 800-868-3900 or online at UTPB students and alumni will receive a discount as well as 0% student financing for the review course. A discount will also be granted to employees of certain accounting firms and Texas Society of Certified Public Accountants (TSCPA) members.

According to Dr. Barbara Scofield, chair of graduate business studies at UTPB, “We are very proud to be able to offer this premier CPA review curriculum. CPA candidates will have one opportunity to pass this section prior to the change.”
