CPA Review Resources

NC State’s MAC Program partners with Becker CPA Review to provide study materials to our students. Becker has earned strong track records of student success through superior teaching, curriculum and learning tools that enable students to develop the knowledge and performance skills necessary to pass their exams.

The NC State MAC Program’s goal is to have all members of each class complete and pass all parts of the CPA exam before they start work.  To do this, we offer a recommended schedule as to when to do your review and sit for the exams.
