Does your firm pay for it? Do you have/want to send that much?

Ok well if you have the $$ Becker is a good choice. Your firm my reimburse you but might not. If your not planning on studying for awhile, you can wait to get an offer and see their specific rules.

Be careful with Becker, you don’t own the material, you lease it for 16 months. If you run out of subscription time it’s a small charge to extend it. So make sure when you have a schedule and stick to it.

Okay cool thanks

Becker helped me pass FAR and AUD. I failed both multiple times while only using Wiley. Becker for the win 💪🏻

Yes

Yes - helped me pass first time in all four exams.

Becker is definitely an expensive option, but Becker is really good about focusing on the most important parts of the exam and drilling the stuff into your head that is most likely to be tested. If you’re looking to simply pass in the least amount of time (most people lol), I would spend the extra and go with Becker. That being said definitely try to get your employer to cover at least part of it. Make the business case that this will allow you to pass faster and spend less time away from work.

I certainly think that is reasonable. Especially if they are already offering it to people who haven’t bought it yet. Becker is a lot of money for someone on intern pay.

Becker is as a solid option. I recommend.

Roger all the way

Vast majority of MBA programs seem to have a higher median income to debt ratio, so seems worth it overall. Obviously top ranked programs tends to lead to higher salaries and depends what you were making going into a program, but generally seems like a good investment.
