Experienced Instructors Guide Students Through Task-Based Simulations, Provide Step-by-Step Solutions and Exam-Day Strategies in Innovative New Course Feature
CHICAGO, Ill. – May 16, 2018 – Becker Professional Education, a global leader in professional education and a part of Adtalem Global Education, today launched its one-of-a-kind “CPA SkillMaster” videos for students preparing for the CPA exam. An innovative new feature of Becker’s market-leading CPA review, “CPA SkillMaster” extends Becker’s proven instructional methodology to include applied solutions for task-based simulations, the questions that students cite as the most difficult part of the CPA exam.
The 15-minute “CPA SkillMaster” video solutions can be accessed in the Becker CPA review course following the completion of each correlating task-based simulation. Through each video, Becker’s instructors apply their extensive real-world and CPA Exam experience to share deeper explanations about the logic behind the answer and the critical thinking skills necessary to tackle task-based simulations on test day. In addition, students will have access to the full video library for continued reference and review throughout their exam preparation. For candidates interested in learning more, Becker’s website currently features one “CPA SkillMaster” video solution for a task-based simulation from each of the four CPA Exam sections.

“Our students say they need more help to bridge the gap from understanding a concept to being able to apply it in a real-world situation,” noted Angie Brown, senior director, product management for Becker Professional Education. “CPA SkillMaster” videos create an experience where the student feels like the instructor is sitting in the same room and speaking directly to them, explaining how to solve each problem so the student can make the mental leap from understanding to application.”
In addition to providing students problem-solving strategies, the “CPA SkillMaster” videos open new ways of learning to assist students who do best with audiovisual cues and perceptual learning. Currently, Becker has more than 80 videos related to key task-based simulations across all four CPA Exam sections, and the professors plan to add more than 300 in the coming year offering critical up-to-date content to match the CPA Exam itself.
“Being successful on the CPA Exam is equal parts knowledge and strategy,” continued Brown. “Students need to understand the types of questions they will be asked and develop a strategy to work through the task-based simulations as quickly as possible. We believe the CPA SkillMaster videos will help to provide that additional level of confidence they need to feel prepared and ready to succeed on exam day and beyond.”
In addition to the new “CPA SkillMaster” videos, Becker has also extended students’ ability to demo their CPA review course, now offering a 21-day free trial. For additional information, visit: www.becker.com.
