BISK CPA Review Course

Minot State University’s Center for Extended Learning and College of Business Accounting Department is again offering the BISK CPA Review Course.

The BISK CPA Review Course is delivered via an intensive video series that focuses on the toughest, most challenging, and the most frequently tested topics on the CPA Exam. 

Check out the BISK website at for a free demo of the course.

  • Significantly increase your chances of passing the exam;
  • Access to a step-by-step disciplined approach that divides the material into smaller, more manageable segments;
  • Additional topic and technical support through BISK Education;
  • Cost savings! If you were to purchase this course on your own the cost could range from $1700 to $2500 + materials;
  • Who should enroll? Anyone planning to sit for the CPA Exam through September 2014.

Here's what a recent MSU grad had to say about the course:

"The CPA Review at MSU was very effective.  It provided a good overall summary of exam topics, but focused on the most frequently tested material.  What I like best about BISK CPA Review was that it made it easier for me to stick to a structured study plan and made the amount of material seem less overwhelming and more manageable."
