Gleim vs. Becker: Course Study Materials
If you’re interested in how long you’ll be able to use each course, you’re definitely also interested in knowing what you’re actually paying for. In this case, both providers offer a heaping helping of CPA Exam Review goodness— but let’s go into a little more detail.
See these comparisons of their video lectures and multiple choice questions to get a better idea of whether Gleim or Becker fits your personal study preferences:
Gleim CPA Review
As we mentioned in our previous section, Gleim offers both a Traditional and a Premium CPA Exam Review package. The Traditional package is a solid foundation, but enrolling in a higher course builds upon this for even better results. This package includes 1,300+ Task-Based Simulations, 10,000+ multiple choice questions, and 350+ exam simulations. In addition to these study materials, the Traditional bundle will also net you access to features like guidance from personal counselors, audio lectures, and the option between physical and digital textbooks.
But with so many features present in the basic package, what’s the next step up?
The Gleim Premium CPA Review package builds upon the Traditional bundle in a few key ways. The first is the aforementioned Access Until You Pass guarantee, ensuring that you have no limit on accessing your course materials until you feel fully prepared for your exam. They also throw in professionally-led instructional videos as well as access to a bank of digital flashcards.
Becker CPA Review
Becker offers three different package levels: Advantage, Premium, and Pro. But what’s the difference between them?
Here’s the rundown:
Becker’s Advantage package is their least impressive option, but that doesn’t mean it’s lacking content. This package includes 24 months of access to a 4-part review course, printed and annotated digital textbooks, 1-on-1 academic support from actual CPAs, and an interface that invokes the style of the actual exam. They even threw in the educational game Accounting For Empires, which is a fun break from hardcore studying.
Their Premium package is inclusive of everything that was included in the Advantage along with some extra perks: 1,100+ extra multiple choice questions, extra tutoring, and a bonus final review cram course. However, Becker’s Pro bundle takes this even further and really sweetens the deal. This package allows you to have 5 one-hour tutoring sessions with an Accounting Professional, extra flashcards, and a full year of access to their Continuing Professional Education (CPE) program.
Becker sets themselves apart from Gleim with their approach and content. Not only do their video lectures and other study materials fully prepare you for the present; they also help you to take active control of your career and your future. Looking at this from a student-focused perspective, you really can’t beat Becker when it comes to straight up course content and consideration for their students’ futures.
