The AICPA recently announced the winners of the 2013 Elijah Watt Sells Awards and we are thrilled to announce that 51 of the 55 Watt Sells winners chose to prepare with Becker!

Since the AICPA began recognizing Watt Sells recipients in 2005, 90% of Watt Sells Award winners studied with Becker.   This level of success is not only an extraordinary accomplishment by our students, but is also a testament to the quality of our course, our instructors and the dedication of our entire organization.

For those of you unfamiliar with the Watt Sells program, the Elijah Watt Sells Award is given to CPA candidates who receive a 95.50 cumulative average across all four sections of the Uniform CPA Exam on the first attempt and completed testing during the calendar year.  More than 94,000 candidates sat for the Exam in 2013.
