As an auditor aspiring to work outside of India I knew I needed an international qualification in order to be recognised abroad and grow professionally. My colleagues introduced me to Becker's study material and classes for US – CPA. I hence got in touch with EduPristine one of the few providers in India for Becker's study material. The faculty provided by EduPristine are qualified CPA's with international exposure by which we got an insight about work profile we might be looking into once in the global market. Their support team is very helpful and prompt in their response. The study material and practice questions provided by Becker was outstanding. I would recommend Becker and EduPristine to any exam candidate serious about taking the CPA exams.
I enjoyed coming toEdupristine CPA Classes on every weekend. I learned a lot and it was a great experience that will help me be more successful in CPA Exams.
