Becker Professional Education, a global leader in professional education and a part of DeVry Inc. (NYSE: DV), announced that all 19 of the 2010 Elijah Watt Sells Award winners prepared for the exam with Becker’s CPA Exam Review. Since the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) began recognizing the Elijah Watt Sells Award recipients nationally in 2005, a remarkable 89 percent of the winners, 66 of 74, have studied with Becker’s CPA Exam Review.

The Elijah Watt Sells Award, first awarded by AICPA in 1923 to honor CPA pioneer Elijah Watt Sells, is presented to the 10 CPA candidates, who, on their first attempt, achieve the highest cumulative scores for all four sections of the Uniform CPA Examination. In 2010 several candidates received identical cumulative scores, resulting in ties and increasing the number of award recipients to 19.

“We would like to congratulate these outstanding candidates for their achievement,” said John Roselli, president of Becker Professional Education. “We recognize the hard work required to earn the CPA credential, and we are honored that so many of the nation’s top students have turned to Becker to help them achieve their goals.”
