  • My Becker CPA software expired. Partly my fault b/c I never paid attention to the expiration date. So you get 24 mos from date of purchase OR 18 mos from first login. No matter what, it expires 24 mos from date of purchase. I really screwed myself by logging in right away willy nilly to check out the layout etc.

    The only extension they will give is a 3 mos one and that is after my 18 mos since I logged in day one. To get this extension you have to have a test scheduled. So my material will expire 21 mos from date of purchase. I don't understand why it isn't one expiration date. If you're smart, get the material but read the books for 6 mos THEN login so you can utilize the full 2 years. Also, if you login day 1 you technically have less time with access to the study material than the AICPA gives you to pass all 4 parts.

    They have to realize life gets in the way. I am mid 30s and married. Life happens. So I am currently awaiting a call back from a supervisor and will argue my case to them to see if I can get it extended to 24 mos from my purchase date, which would be Nov. of this year.

    After expiration the cost for one section is $565 or $1600 for all 4 parts.

    /end rant

    So important to read all the fine print before you drop that much money on anything.

    How many more sections do you have to pass?

    Might be worth it to check out a different set up study materials that arent as expensive. The ninja method is great!

    Just a warning. the 3 month extension is for only one section out of your Becker software. I didn't realize that at first and Becker doesn't state that clearly, they just say “one time extension of software program”.

    personally i think its bull that it expires after such a short period of time… what if you work a lot and dont pass on your first try? like me? you have 18 mos from the first exam you pass, so one would think you have much more than that for your study material – especially when you pay SO much money for it.

    i wish i read more into my options on study material before purchasing becker, i dont think it would've been my first choice, but its just so forced and its what my job offered…

    ^JustKeepStudying My first exam was August 2013… We have both been at it for so long…. We will get it.

    My Becker also expired this January >.< Now finishing my FAR studies with Ninja………. Except that it's busy season and I haven't touched it at all T___T

    Sure technically you should have read the fine print but for the ridiculous amount Becker charges you should get unlimited support and subscription.

    Because of stuff like this I would never recommend Becker.

    NINJA method is great and cheap!

    “Your license will expire 18 months from the date of first login or 24 months from the date of purchase, whichever comes first.”

    That is literally an inch away from every login screen on Becker's website.

    ninja material buddy – it well be better and cheaper

    But it's Becker and while every other program will enable a candidate to pass, they've got the lions share of the market. I'm sure they've got some geek locked in a room calculating what % will renew, what % will pass in less than 18 months, and what % will buy less than all 4 sections.

    It's like a health club who makes a fortune off of New Years resolutions that die by Valentines day.

    sounds like planet fitness….you should listen to NPR's planet money about gyms

    @mla. I think you're being a bit harsh on Becker. It's expensive but its a very good study material. There is a reason why the big 4 and a lot of the regional firms use it. With that being said, its certainly not the only good choice out there for study material.

    Not harsh at all. Serial number for adobe acrobat dc. They're a great program but so is every other program. I'm just saying they could still be profitable with a 24 or even 36 month window but strategize that people will be that enamored with them to drop more money 18 months later not to buy something new, just for more time with what they already had.

    the books dont expire and you can always buy a different bank of questions…

    If you read the Becker book and buy the ninja mcq for $40 (coupon code: HIYA) you can pass the exam. Many people have utilized this method and passed.
